Baltic Bazaar Trip

I finally made it over to Baltic Bazaar on Atlantic on Saturday while my friend Holly was visiting. I picked up some wonderful jacquard fabric which will be turned into pillows. I have a bunch of it so I am hoping to sell some on etsy! I am also looking into selling at the Brooklyn Flea, so be on the lookout!

Calling all web designers!

Are there any web designer out there who are looking to build up their portfolio?

I am on the lookout for someone who is willing to help me design a fairly simple portfolio based website for me. I have been asking around and getting quotes from people but I honestly don’t have $300 lying around at the moment or the time to teach myself. I would be willing to negotiate a stipend and of course give credit where it is due. BUT I do have some products that I am working on at the moment that I am hoping to sell locally in the next few months, so this could lead to future work!

Seacoast NH Heartwalk 2008 Walking in memory of Cheryl Lewis

mommy dearest

My sister Kristen will be walking in the 2008 Seacoast NH Heartwalk on May 18th in memory of our mother, Cheryl Lewis, who died in December of 2006 from a rare heart disease called ARVD. Unfortunately I will not be able to walk, but will be there in spirit. This year our team is called “Thump Thump” and our goal is to get as many people to walk with the team or donate. Our team goal is to raise $1,000. The goal for the whole Seacoast heart walk is to raise $88,000.

If you would like to go to our team page it can be found at:

My personal page, where you can donate is located at:

*Copy and Paste above addresses for some reason when I link them they direct you to a general page*

Currently in my studio I am in the process of designing a necklace to promote the awareness of heart disease in memory of my mother and all of those who have lost a loved one. I am also working on a set of plush cushions in the shape of organs. My first one being the heart. I will be posting my progress as soon as I get something a bit more tangible. I am hoping to sell them and donate a portion of the money made to the American Heart Association.

Happy Valentine’s Day <3 Kimberly!

Visual artist Polly Apfelbaum will speak at Pratt Institute about her artwork and career, as part of the 2007-2008 Visiting Artists Lecture Series, from 12:45 to 1:45 PM, Tuesday, February 12, in the Engineering Building, Room 371, on Pratt’s Brooklyn Campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Apfelbaum creates floor and wall art using bright color and expressive line and shape. She works with a variety of media including dye, velvet, paint, glitter, marker, woodblock print, and silkscreen, and fashions the material into vibrant floral and nature-inspired imagery.

Apfelbaum has had solo international exhibitions at such galleries as Frith Street, London; Galeria Camargo Vilaça, São Paolo, Brazil; Museum of Contemporary Art, Klasma, Helsinki; and at various contemporary art galleries throughout the United States. Her work has been featured in numerous international group exhibitions and belongs in the public collections of The Brooklyn Museum of Art; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others.

Apfelbaum received her bachelors of fine arts degree from Tyler School of Art in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania and has since received grants and awards from The American Academy of Arts and Letters, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and Artists Space.
