The 2019 Motel Art Show

Welcome to the 2019 Motel Art Show Series!

For one night only, on October 26th, from 5 pm - 9 pm, artists will 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 add the "first dibs hour" 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 6 pm - 9 pm, but you will have from 5 pm - 6 pm 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.

Welcome back to the new Amelia blog...

At the end of 2017, I decided to take a break. I wanted to practice more self care, be more present for my family, and I wanted to write a second book. I'm so thrilled to say that I have been able to do all three over the last almost two years. I've been able to do all three while still being more busy than ever.... 

I've been traveling, doing tons of interior design, taking more pictures for both clients use and content creation to share on social media. But you know what, I'm still able to meet my son's bus everyday, get exercise that I had to push to the side from all those years of having a store, and volunteer more time to my community. 

It's been a great two years, but I miss sharing here a lot, so I created a calendar for myself with content lined up, full of artists to watch, design I'm loving, recipes, event to talk about (like the upcoming Motel Art Show Series), and so much more.... If you have anything you'd love to see in this space, please let me know. I'm bringing back Studio Stories too! Once a month, I'll be sharing a look into the studios of different artists, makers, chefs, musicians, and more. 

I hope you will follow along! New content will go live at the end of September, when I announce this year's Motel Art Show Series artists. - Erin
