Trinkets from Heaven and other misunderstandings...

This Saturday night will be the opening of Trinkets from Heaven and other misunderstandings which is a collection of work that I have spent the last three months making.  There will be a great variety of pieces from $5 to $1500.  There are many $10 items.  I want to make my work accessible to anyone that cares to own a piece.  I call it--Art for the Masses.  Most of it was made from recycled items or things that I already had in my studio home.  There are 237 pieces for sale! 
I hope people realize that investing in each other, in handmade, in local businesses is a really good way to keep St. Petersburg a destination art city!  

The event is free! After you stop by the Morean please walk down to the 600 Block of Central Avenue to see the other shows and galleries that will be open.  I also have work at Art On! Central and the Artpool Gallery.  Artpool will be having a big art and fashion show that night!  

So....This Saturday night...
5:30-8:30 



GALLERY WALK... 12-11-10
Morean Arts Center
719 Central Avenue
St. Petersburg, FL 33701

I would like to say a special Thank you to the Morean for inviting me to show in this gallery space.  I would also like to thank Truman Bentley Jr. for supplying me with many handmade canvases.  Local artist, Frank Strunk III, really helped me out by--not only letting me use his wood working tools, but also gave me some pointers.  Thank you Frank for your time and helping hand!  And lastly, thank you to my crumbcakes for your love and support and being my constant inspiration.

Instead of spending money on crappy made-in-china junk...
Why not come to a super cool art show where you can buy HANDMADE gifts and ART. 
Please come to the Black Friday Show! You won't be disappointed.

These Days

I want to apologize to all my mail art friends... seems I've been such a slacker.  But, in reality I've been working feverishly hard for an upcoming show in St. Petersburg.  Actually I'll be in two shows in November and one in December.  You can no longer find my work at Artful Living in St. Petersburg, FL.  Turns out they didn't want my stuff and showed me to the door.  Actually it has been somewhat of a relief as I have a lot to do for ArtOn Central and Artpool.  So with the extra shows coming up and the local galleries... I feel utterly overwhelmed.  I've also been posting on ebay and in my etsy vintage store.  I shop at yardsales, estate sales and thrift shops to find special things to resell. 

Everything has been such a struggle these days.  This morning I posted, "These Days" by Nico on my facebook page.  My sentiments exactly. 

I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking
These days, these days.
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I had the chance to.

I've stopped my rambling,
I don't do too much gambling
These days, these days.
These days I seem to think about
How all the changes came about my ways
And I wonder if I'll see another highway.

I had a lover,
I don't think I'll risk another
These days, these days.
And if I seem to be afraid
To live the life that I have made in song
It's just that I've been losing so long.
La la la la la, la la.

I've stopped my dreaming,
I won't do too much scheming
These days, these days.
These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten.
Please don't confront me with my failures,
I had not forgotten them.

Panama City Beach, FL






We recently got the opportunity to go to Panama City Beach, FL to observe the Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day.  It was our first Feast without Ted.  It was hard on the crumbcakes to be without their father but, we survived.  We actually had a glorious time.  We heard excellent messages at church and played in the clear water and on the white sandy beaches.  I feel very blessed to have had this opportunity.  I thank my parents and my church for making the trip possible.

UR TOY STORY Mail art show!

Hi everyone! I've been working hard to get everything ready for the UR Toy story mail art show... a show that I have been working on for a YEAR! I've been advertising and collecting mail art for this show all year! I'll be displaying about 500 pieces of mail art from many different countries... I'm guessing at least 20 different countries.  It's been an amazing year of art and i was happy to document all the pieces on my Jenniferzoe blog.  This year I will also be hosting a Fluxus performance and poetry reading event! Mark Haber, local famous writer will be doing a reading.  Local singer and song writer, Rebecca Zapen will be our musical performer!  That will be three years in a row for Rebecca and I together with art and music! And some super fantastic artists will be showing up to do Fluxus performance.  I'm guessing you are asking yourself--"what in the world is fluxus performance?"  Well show up next Saturday night at the Artpool gallery and find out!  There are so many cool artists flying in from all over the USA to perform for us!  Reed Altemus, Truman Bentley Jr, Keith Buchholz, Ginny Lloyd, Bibiana Padilla Maltos, Andrew Topel, Reid Wood and Christopher Reynolds (and ME) will all be HERE!! Can you imagine??  I really can't believe all these super cool artists will come to our little city.  It's going to be one art party!  Be sure to buy your ticket early--because it will save you $5 per ticket.  Tickets are $10 if you prebuy at www.artpoolrules.com but if you wait to get it at the door it will be a whopping $15.  But, with that ticket you will get the musical genius of Rebecca Zapen, the artistic fabulousness of the Kosharek mail art collection, and unbelieveable FLUXUS PERFORMANCES from world renoun FLUXUS ARTISTS! Plus cookies and brownies and the food that Artpool will provide and ONE drink of wine, beer, soda or water! So it's definitely worth your while!!  I hope you will make it!
Remember*** show opens September 11th ** 7pm to Midnight!! See you there!!!

Stache Day at the Dali Museum




The crumbcakes and I dressed up for Stache day at the Dali. I should say... two of the cakes dressed up. #2 would have nothing of it. Two out of three ain't bad. We got more attention at the local Publix grocery store. I guess you don't see Dali impersonators every day at the grocery store.
