A bunch of awesome local artists will be participating in a group show at Space710 (which is part of the Kefa Cafe in Silver Spring, Maryland). I will have my “breezeblocks” piece for sale (a 20″x 20″ photo printed to metal).

Kefa will be having their grand re-opening on Saturday, Jan. 16th @10:30a. Hope to see you there!

Hope everyone is having a good first week of 2016!

I have two events this month that I am excited to announce:

On Saturday, January 9th, Politics and Prose will publish the 3rd installment of District Lines and I will am stoked to say that my photography will be featured on both the front and back covers and the inside! The pictures are my take on the historic DC Call Boxes that are scattered throughout the City. The readings from the anthology begin at 6p.

Then on January 16th, I will be part of a fun group show in Silver Spring at Space 710 (which is located inside of Kefa Cafe). All of the art in the group show has a common thread of Silver Spring running through it. It will run for about a month and the opening is Saturday, the 16th at 1030a!

 

 

Holidaze, Local with Love and the Hirshhorn//shop local

Hi everyone:

So it’s been quite a year for One Sock On photography!

In the next week I have three holiday shows/markets:

Holidaze (runs Dec 4-23)

Local With Love (Dec 6th, 1p-4p)

WPA/Hirshhorn’s Holiday Pop-Up (Dec 5th and Dec 6th, 10a-530p both days)

In the spirit of this past weekend’s Small Business Saturday, I want to share what my friend and fella crafter/maker, Sarah of Hooked and Loopy said so beautifully:

“This year I am not going to buy STUFF for the holidays. I’m going to buy unique handmade GIFTS. Things that the people I give them to won’t immediately try to figure out how much they can get for them when they return them to the store. Something that I want a person to have, because it is special, because the person is special. GIFTS that become keepsakes. GIFTS that the person I give them to brags about getting. GIFTS made by awesome people I know, who put their souls into their products. GIFTS that say something about the relationship between me and the receiver — and not something about the percent off I got on the gift. I won’t buy as much, but I’ll be happier with what I buy. Because then the holidays aren’t about my obligations to the people I need to buy for, but instead are about my expressions of love and gratitude for the people I care about. And that’s the …elusive magic of the season. You can find awesome makers… at HOLIDAZE in Silver Spring, and other local spots.”

Finally,  I want to point out to folks the following:

  • all of my printer and packaging vendors employ people in the United States
  • my notecards are all printed on recycled paper
  • every photo you see was taken by me
  • most images were taken in DC Metro region
  • I hand designed and hand rolled each and every roll of wrapping paper
  • just this season I have packaged over 200 pieces of wrapping paper and over 175 notecards
  • my philosophy of having “art accessible to all” holds true as I price even my large pieces at reasonable rates.

Thank you for all of your support!

-Jen
