Patti Gay-Two Can Art Collection
With the economy down in the last few years it did seem that manufacturers were happy with turn out this year. One art director told me it "was like old times." I hope that she is right because that can only be good for artists and businesses.
It was very exciting seeing all of the merchandise.
There were a great deal of distressed wood items.
I also saw several word related products too.
(Although that trend may be waning) I did see
mostly themes that have been popular for years.
I found that most people were very friendly and
helpful. The one most important thing to think
about is to wear comfortable shoes. There is a
great deal of walking!
Patti Gay- Two Can Art CollectionIt was a really great show for me personally. The Two Can Art Collection that I do with my son was launched by Tervis. Two Can Art is a collaborative collection. Noah who is autistic paints all of the textures that I then create images from. It's exciting to me that it is also bringing about autism awareness. www.tervis.com.Tervis is giving 5% of sales to Autism Speaks and Balance4Kids. I could not have asked for a better partnership. The people in the Tervis showroom rock! There will be more products from the Two Can Art Collection in showrooms next year, so I can hardly wait. I'll be putting information out on the Two Can Art Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/
