Saturday morning Aidan and I went to the Studio to make some Art tiles . I've been organizing the studio preparing material for the upcoming show at Work Space Harlem end of this month

Aidan was keen to select a variety of material to make his two art tiles . He decided later that he was going to donate them to the project and put them up for SALE at a local store in town .


Over the next few weeks , we'll be partnering with a number of stores in the area to have art 'in stock' , which will benefit the new HFA projects . Starting with these small , original works by Simon Draper which will be priced to sell . They are made from the collected off cuts from the project which could have been an old art work , actual building material from a studio or other material collected for the project.

The idea is to have the art priced so it relates to the needs of the NEW project . $50 could either pay an artist in residence honorarium for a day or provide new material for RECYCLING a studio. Other works will be ON SALE soon , and their pricing will relate to a project need .

Participating stores in Beacon , are ARTISAN WINESHOP and in Cold Spring , THE COUNTRY GOOSE and HIGHLAND BASKETS. So if you are shopping for wine or getting a gift , take a look at the art in stock as well . ALL proceeds go to the HFA Projects in 2010 , including helping put on the show in Harlem !!
