The 2018 One Night Stand At The Ole Miss Motel

Welcome to the 2018 Motel Art Show Series, October 13th, from 5pm - 9pm. 

For one night only, artists take over the Ole Miss Motel, each turning a motel room into a gallery for one night only. 

Most artists sell out of work quickly, so we started adding in a paid preview and the first dibs to buy art early. This price includes a light dinner from Smoke Shop Oxford and the first preview and chance to buy the art. 

The show opens to the public for free, from 6pm - 9pm, but you will have from 5pm - 6pm to browse and eat, with a purchased ticket. 

Pre-purchased tickets will be available at will call. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The One Night Stand At The Ole Miss Motel 2017

It's the time of year.... Announcing the artists for this year's October 7th, One Night Stand At The Ole Miss Motel. Going into the 11th year for the show, I've decided to invite fewer artists so that you can really get to know the work of the artists that are showing and support them by buying their work on the evening of the show. 

Like the last two years, there will be a preview hour, from 5pm - 6pm. You can buy tickets directly, here. From 6pm - 9pm, it's free to attend. 

This year's artists are: 

Jonathan Kent Adams  (Oxford, MS) / Meredith C. Bullock (Nashville,TN) / Ashleigh Coleman (Jackson, MS) /Adrianne Brown David (Water Valley, MS) / Reid Mitchell (Memphis, TN) / lo fi  (Memphis, TN) / Michael Foster (Oxford, MS)  / Kate Freeman (Jackson, MS)  / Andrew Leggett  (Los Angeles, CA) / The Living Room Gallery (Water Valley, MS)  

**Food will be available for sale, vendor TBA. 

**For parking, please carpool, walk, ride your bike... there will be no parking on the premises. There is a parking lot across the street from the motel that you can use or public lots near the square.

Long over due....

I have been quiet on the shop blog, because I have been busy getting the shop filled for the Fall, I'm now writing for Design Sponge, I've been doing a lot of freelance writing and photography and I started a kids travel blog. It was a busy, busy summer. I have a packed Fall too... I'm designing an entire apartment building (!!!), the Motel Art Show is coming up in October, more photography work and a work announcement that I've been on pins and needles to share.... that will be soon. 

I hope you had a nice summer as well!! Hopefully with more relaxing added in, than mine. 

Here's a little of what I've been doing, aside from the links above:
