Lesley Burke at Blondie: A Salon

lesleymirror

I recently went to my friend Lesley Burke’s art opening at Blondie: A Salon. It was a friendly, inviting atmoshpere in one of downtown Portland’s vintage office buildings, still operational as a mix of apartments and street front businesses. The elegant backdrop served to show off Lesley’s visionary and dream like, richly layered oil paintings and small works quite well. Later in the night, DJ’s had the intimate but enthusiastic crowd bumpin! You can visit the event Facebook Page for the event to see more photos and info from opening night.

You may still be able to catch the show while it’s up. Visit Blondie: A Salon at 1225 SW Alder St., Ste. D, Portland, OR 97205. Stop by and say hello to the owner and you might earn yourself a discounted first time hair cut too!

 

 


My New Storefront

Hey Guys (of whatever gendered persuasion!)… Guess What! I have a new storefront on Storenvy under Laughingnewborn. It’s kind of like Etsy, with a focus on independent artists & designers whose brands tell a compelling story. I’d like to think mine does 🙂
It functions kind of like a social media site, in that you can “collect” items/brands you like and share them with others.

So, go “Envy” my store, if you would plz, thanks!!!

Go to my Contacts page, Here

and it should pop right up.
Or, you can visit:

http://laughingnewborn.storenvy.com

It is still brand new, so make sure to check back regularly, both here and on the storefront, to see what new developments are taking place. Please contact me if you notice any bugs that need fixing.

Yays! – SBA
