Save the Date! Vintage Posters on Catalina Island Sept 19 & 20 & Abbott Kinney Festival Sept 27
December 31, 2009 § 1 Comment
Dear Clients & Friends in Southern California,
I’m writing to invite you to a couple of September events which are new for us. One of them is on Catalina Island, and the other is in Santa Monica. I should start by saying that right after Dwell on Design, I went to France and Switzerland for a long trip, and, drunk with the power of the strong dollar, purchased 410 new posters. So, saying we have new acquisitions is an understatement. If you need to see them now, you can take a look at our website.
I hope you will come and join us for a peek at these treasures.
September 19th & 20th we will exhibit our collection at Overlook Hall on Catalina Island. Originally built in 1929, the building was designed in the manner of an Italian chapel, and served for many years as the community’s Christian Science Church. Completely renovated in 2010, the space features beamed ceilings, original Douglas-fir floors and spacious windows.
Our event is free, and it coincides with the 57th Annual Catalina Festival of Art, the longest running annual event on the island. Book your hotel now because it’s sure to fill up! Here’s a link to the Catalina Ferry from Long Beach, and here is the one from Dana Point.
The following weekend, we will participate in the Abbot Kinney Festival on Sunday, September 27th. This show, now in it’s 31st year, might be too crazy for most, and Catalina will be a more peaceful way to look at posters, however, if you’re up for the crowds, come and say hello!
With Every Good Wish,
Elizabeth (Can’t stop collecting)
Christopher (King of Logistics)
Kate (I can’t believe I photographed 410 posters)
