The Cosmic Trunk Show will take place at the National Ornamental Metal Museum tomorrow from 2-5 p.m., coinciding with the opening reception for Alchemy: The Enamelist Society's Juried Exhibition.
Local artists, including Tim Pace, Kingfisher Design, Suzy Hendrix, and Caldwell Forge, will have work on sale in the museum's stately library building while you enjoy complimentary cosmos and light hors d'oevres.
The show was a great success with yesterday's beautiful weather, although I maybe went a little overboard with purchases from three different vendors. But I love my things! And I couldn't help it!
The bookmark with a vintage butterfly stamp is by Suzy Hendrix and the pressed metal earrings are from Mary Catherine Floyd's Colorblock Jewelry line.
And when I saw Tim Pace's praying mantis, I really couldn't help myself. As it turns out, Pace previously made a 17-foot-tall mantis for a library in Jackson, TN! Go check out the Metal Museum's new Alchemy exhibition now!
