After a visit with Kev’s grandma in Jersey, we drove into the city to check out Art Star. I found it a little strange stepping into a space filled with work by people who’s blogs I read. I saw stuff by Camilla Engman, Amy Karol and Leya Williams among others I recognized. I was going to purchase this print which I’d picked out before we even left Toronto but when I got there I was captivated by one of Leya’s three-dimensional collages and found I could not leave without it. Kevin seems miffed that I bought something he thinks I can make myself (maybe I could, but it’s unlikely I would) and I don’t know how to explain why it seems so special to me but I love it.
Anyway. Art Star was fantastic. You should check it out if you’re in Philly. I will definitely visit again, hopefully with more money in my pocket. It was such a shame I had to leave with only one thing.
