Open studio – no purchase necessary

Open studio, Friday, 21 Feb 2020, from 4-7pm at 2716 N Broadway, #210, 90031. No purchase whatsoever necessary to be welcome.

So the other day, I was trying to talk to a friend and we had a bad cell connection, and it seemed like he said something about a “Money grubbing bore” but he was breaking up so it might have been “Money grubbing door” or “spore.” I’ve really no idea. At any rate, thrust of the discussion was could he come see the collages if he didn’t want to buy anything, and my answer was of course. 

All are welcome, whether to look or buy or do both. Yes, my main goal is to get these collages into good homes, so no reasonable offer will be refused. And whatever sells leaves with the buyer. I’m also happy to ship within in the contiguous United States. And, yes, money is wonderful and always welcome, but I hope no one is confusing me with a money grubbing spore or something. 🙂

So please, one and all, fall by the studio for one of the last chances to see the collages before they go into storage FOREVER.

If you’re not in driving distance, you can have a look at the website at collage.gingermayerson.com. It seems to reliably working these days.

Oh, and happy Valentines Day to those who celebrate it.

The Internets of Cyberspace and Collages!

Framed Collage Sale, 2-5pm, Sunday, February 9, 2020 at 2716 North Broadway, #210, LA CA 90031

Luckily, the “Looking Away” collages were not what I was afraid they were. They were just letting me know it was time to stop making collages.

So I’d like to get the framed ones into good homes before I close the studio and put them in storage until… I have no idea until what or when. If you’re not in driving distance, I’m happy to ship FedEx Ground in the U.S., see below for a happy owner in Denver of “Man Walking”. You can see collages at www.Collage.GingerMayerson.com I’m sorry the website wasn’t working last time. A very small part of a very large website stopped working, and the whole thing was inaccessible, which was quite annoying. As far as I know right now, it’s working perfectly, if you’d like to take a look.

So, if you’d like to come by the studio all collages are going going gone for any reasonable offer.

Also I’m looking for someone to share the space, so if you or someone you know is looking for a nice sunny office/studio in Lincoln Heights, come by to take a look. Google map location: https://goo.gl/maps/E4SeN5CGAZhF6Mgt8

Hope to see you 2 to 5pm on Sunday, February 9, 2020.

Here’s a collage in the studio that looks much better in person. Come see it!

Coming soon: the Darkness at Sunset and Vine trilogy

But until then, you can amuse yourselves mightily at dasav.net, the production and essay site for the readers’ theater version of Part I of the trilogy. Part I used to be called Darkness at Sunset and Vine but has been renamed, The Way we Live Now at Sunset and Vine. The production of it simply made my year in 2008. Or you can look around the publisher site at WapshottPress.com, which is also fun, but not as much. Enjoy!

The book should be on sale at least by June of 2012 (she wrote with great confidence).

Dread Pirate Mayerson gives an interview

“Q: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have 3 things, what would they be?

“A: A fully outfitted frigate, a skillful crew and a satellite phone. I’d sail the high seas, rescuing people marooned on desert islands with only three things. I’d be known as the Dread Pirate Mayerson, the Scourge of Silly Interview Questions. And if I had an internet connection I’d blog about my adventures.”
