Day of artsy awesomeness in Phila!

This past weekend I finally got to Art Star in Philadelphia! It was such a wonderful space filled with amazing talent. One of the first tables I saw was filled with tons of note pads, and cards by Susie Ghahremani! I absolutely adore her whimsical style- so I had to buy this pack of postcards (I got 2 of each print so I plan to send some out and keep the others for myself to possibly frame). Unfortunately there were not print's of Jen Corace's work but I did get to enjoy her gallery set up in the back of the shop.

After that fun venture we headed to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. We could have spent an entire day looking at everything in there but we squeezed in as much as we could in the 2.5 hours we were there. My favorite works I saw was the Seurat painting which was amazing to see in person. All those little dots of color make your eyes want to go numb if you stare at it long enough but it was a beautiful piece. My other favorites
 were these delicate dutch tiles that were hung in a staircase hallway that we saw while heading up to the next level of the museum. I loved the simplicity and design of them (especially the birds!!)

and yes, my friend Manda and I were super tourist-y and had to stand in line for the Rocky statue!


  1. art, philly, and rocky- the perfect formula far an awesome day

  2. Thank you for your comment on my IF piece for "intricate." I love yours - the birds are adorable. Good luck with making your own art goals - I'm finding that it's good to have them written down and in front of me as a reminder. Funny too - we were planning on going to the Philly art museum yesterday, but plans changed. Looks like you had a great time! Art Star sounds neat too.

  3. thanks for the art tour around philly! cool!
