What better way to bring together our loves of art and books than with a collection of special bookplates? This self-adhesive “exhibition” will be part of our upcoming Haunted Menagerie release, and will feature original work by some of our favorite artists: Canvas Menagerie, Benjamin Dewey, Christa Dippel, Amy Earles, Hidden Velvet, Marybel Martin, Becky Munich, Pantovola, Alexander Reisfar, and our own Layla Sullivan.
We’ll be donating 25% of all sales of our Haunted Menagerie bookplate set to the Portland Audubon Society in support of everything they do to help animals and inspire humans to love and protect nature. Any remaining profits will be used to help fund future nonprofit Creeping Museum projects.
Our Haunted Menagerie release includes a miniature group show in our Little Free Library gallery featuring original work by Diane Irvine Armitage, Stephanie Buscema, Jenny Fontana, Darla Jackson, Gretchen Lewis, Dena Seiferling, and Joe Vollan. Please join us for an opening reception on Thursday, February 15 at 7pm at our Little Free Library gallery in North Portland.
