Monday was "Tinstallation Day" at Art Source Gallery in Boise, and tonight is Opening Night!
"Tins?" You ask, "What the heck?"
Yup, artists from three Boise art organizations were invited to create art based on the ever beloved Altoids tin. It was a lot of fun to work on these projects, certainly a challenge to step beyond one's normal bounds.
Art buddies Lisa Cheney-Jorgensen (top) and Marianne Konvalinka (immediately above), came over to the studio a couple of Sunday afternoons in December for a little tin-making fest. With Barry's help we layered in images and various items.
I ended up making eight tins, here's sampling: Oh -- they're all so sale, just $20.00 each and all proceeds from the sale of my tins will benefit the Boise Open Studios Tour (BOSCO). Email me if you're interested in one. Or leave a note in the comments. Also, check out Art Source's Facebook page for more images of the tins!
