[Artist Hayley Gaberlavage and her work.]
If you're a longtime SC reader, no doubt you've seen the work and studios of New Orleans-based artists Hayley Gaberlavage and Amanda Talley featured here before.
Currently, Amanda's paintings can be seen in Lonny (the Ruthie Sommers-designed apartment October/November 2010) and Hayley is represented in numerous public collections including SCAD's. Now the two Southern artists have teamed up to form Transport Studio, a new online venue for beginning and established collectors. Starting with a limited three-day sale, works will be offered at a cost thirty percent less than regular retail price. The sale kicks off this Friday, November 12 and runs through Sunday, November 14. Available art can be previewed here.

Revisiting Amanda's golden twigs and all of Debra Shriver's collected ephemera, I'm seriously considering gilding some backyard leaves and transforming them into gift tags. Ideas for the contents of the boxes? Well, New Orleanians might want to mark down the following dates, Friday, December 3 through Sunday, December 5. The Ogden is hosting The Art of Giving that weekend.
The Friday evening event, from 6 to 8 p.m., is for museum members. The Center for Southern Craft and Design will temporarily expand and visitors will find the museum's first-floor retail space as well as the atrium filled with fine pottery, jewelry, textiles, glass, metal, wood and basketry from more than 80 accomplished Southern artists. Also that night, Shriver will be on hand to sign copies of Stealing Magnolias: Tales from a New Orleans Courtyard.
The public is invited to stop by from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. I'll post a reminder early in December. In the meantime, stay tuned to the CSCD blog.
