WELCOME Art*o*mat® LOVERS
|Welcome Santa Fe's very first Art*o*mat®! (we call her MAThilda)|
and thank you for visiting my new blogspot! My name is Victoria and I'm super excited to introduce you to my new Art*o*mat®
art vending machine, the very first in Santa Fe, New Mexico (yes, it IS in America: it's NOT Mexico, and it's NOT New). "Her" (she's totally feminine -just look at her!) name is "MAThilda" and she will be making her debut on Feb. 16th, 2013 1-5pm
one block from The Plaza
, at El Centro De Santa Fe
, 102 E. Water Street, Santa Fe, NM 87501.
You're all invited to stop by and meet MAThilda, her artist/creator, Clark Whittington
, and Corky and I. Local artists who are interested in creating art for Art*o*mat®
are encouraged to come by and hear all about submission guidelines for the cigarette-box-sized art from Clark. We'll be there from 1-5pm and we'll have some special treats and refreshments so please come by and grab a hot piece of $5.00 art from the hot new chick in town, MAThilda! Check out this article about it in the Santa Fe Reporter.
|Here she is in Clark's studio, Mar. 2012, before the magic happens!|
Back in March, during Our Epic Art*o*mat® Roadtrip
, I got to meet the old cigarette vending machine that was to become the glorious MAThilda after a few short months of hard work and magical transformation by Clark Whittington
and his talented team of artists.
