Peeps! Poems! Presidents! at Artomatic

Artomatic as a family this weekend! We had a great time!
Peeps: The kids enjoyed meeting Betty (Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest Finalist) and making their own peeps dioramas. Of course a few peeps were sampled along the way.
Poems: I was pleasantly surprised to find a BRASH poem taped to my wall! BRASH is an anonymous poet who leaves poems for select Artomatic artists. S/he is somewhat of an Artomatic celebrity. I feel honored to have received a BRASH poem--it made my day! Thanks!
Presidents: We even ran into the president and his family. True, they were only cardboard, but the kids still wanted a photo.

We also caught the Artomatic cardboard 500 and had fun seeing all the cool art and leaving comments in the guest books. Don't forget to visit--less than a week to go!

I've had so much fun working my shifts and meeting many of the participating artists!
I was out of town and missed "Meet the Artist Night", but plan to make at least 2 more visits.
I will be at Artomatic on Saturday, June 27th for the Artomatic 500 & Peeps workshop. I also plan to go on July 3rd for the New Artist Tour and 10th Anniversary Party. Hope to see you there!!! Special thanks to "Odd Little Bird" for posting a photo of my space on flickr and to DC blogs for mentioning "Colorful Creations by Jackie Tury"!
