Dear Fleisher, 4×6 Inches of Art is a biennial fundraising exhibition showcasing the work of hundreds of artists from Philadelphia and beyond. Artists submit original postcard-size works in a wide range of media and styles, each of which is exhibited anonymously and sold on a first-come, first served basis for $50.
My contribution this year was all about repurposing. The screen-printed fabric is an old shopping tote turned inside out. I made the dangle from a silver candelabra I found in the trash. I sawed off off the drip pans and milled the round metal arms into square wire that I forged into the dangle hanging from the porcelain pendant. I added a chain and jump rings.
I couldn’t make it to the sale this year. There was one piece in particular that I really wanted to buy. Can you guess which one it was from the pictures below?
So many outstanding works of art by so many talented people. And a great way to raise money for a wonderful institution.
