Out of My Mind Over Ornaments!

alison_e_kurek_cat_ornaments_silent_mylo_tuxedo_catSo, it’s November 18th in Buffalo NY and it’s 62 degrees, with a predicted high in the low 70s! But, as this is Buffalo NY, there is snow in the forecast for this weekend. Hopefully not too much because I will have these hand painted cat ornaments, and so much more, at the Out of My Mind Holiday Art Festival, tonight 6pm to 9pm, and Saturday and Sunday 10 to 5pm.

The show is at 42 Riley Street, East Aurora, NY — near Vidler’s and across the street from Riley Street Station. Organized by non other than East Aurora’s own Michelle Conley Vogel, this show will be packed with talented artists from across Western New York . Come out and see us! You are sure to go Out of your Mind too when you see what we have in store for you!

Buffalos are grazing in my studio…..

I turned around and saw Buffalos grazing as far as the eye could see.

I hand paint each ornament — so there will only be a limited number available for sale. You can find them in my Etsy Store, at the three local shows I’m participating in, or at my studio by appointment.

A small number of ornaments will also be available at Village Artisan’s (Williamsville, NY). Art Dialogue Gallery (Buffalo, NY), and the TR Inaugural Site (Buffalo, NY).


October is transition time. With the outdoor art shows of the summer and fall ended, my show tent nestled into it’s winter home (a.k.a. storage), and the leaves outside turning brilliant gold, orange and red, I turn my attention to smaller works.

I offer a line of cards and prints with holiday themes, but my favorite part of my autumn work is ornaments! Each one is a little piece of original art! Hand sculpted and/or hand painted, each ornament has a personality all it’s own.

Perfect for gift giving, or as a gift for yourself, you can find my ornaments in my Etsy store store, at Village Artisans on Main Street in Williamsville, NY, or at my studio/gallery space by appointment.

Enjoy the beautiful autumn weather — we all know what’s coming next!
