Our Art is Turned On

We will finally be participating with some other fantastic area artists in a gallery show this fall that hasn’t been delayed or canceled. And it will be a very special one. It’s called Turned On because every piece will have lighted accents of some kind.

In addition to Jamie Bridgham’s work being shown we are proud that Jamie’s son, John Gruber, will be displaying some of his fantastic glass art.

Another artist that will be there that we have been working with closely is Sharon Boynton. Her specialty is combining welded metals with glass. So you will be able to see the work of three Wizard’s Touch people in one place. You don’t want to miss it.

Stop by and check out the work of all the artists showing. Its at the Split Gallery at 2561 Leavenworth. The art will be on display from October 22nd thru the 25th.

Find Us On Etsy

We have found that our designs and products are so varied we needed more stores. That’s right, we now have two stores on Etsy. We put one on Etsy for all of the gifts and designs made by the various artists in our co-op. But JR wanted more so she put together a special collection for pieces that are more elegant.

The store Wizard’s Touch Co-op offers an assortment of pieces put together by artists from the midwest area. Knowing our stable of artists in the future this store could anything from magic wands to wrought iron yard art.

If you are looking for more elegant pieces then you should go to Wizard’s Touch Studio. Here you will find unique pieces direct from JR’s studios. The variety here can go from jewelry boxes carved with weeping angels to stones mounted in sterling silver cast into organic shapes. Many of her Steampunk themed pieces can be found here too.

So while we are all stuck with self-quarantine, now is a great time to spend online shopping. As always, you can still find our Jamie Bridgham’s photography gallery and Idle Thoughts OnlineT-shirt shop ready with the beautiful and unusual.

After having it on my to-do list for some time I have finally gotten around to the item that says “Organize Jamie’s photographs”.

So now – tens of terabytes of photos later – I have curated some new galleries up on JamieBridghamPhotography.com.
