First Friday – Francie and Finch

I had an amazing First Friday last month at Francie & Finch in Lincoln! My work hung the entire month.


Leslie served wine, cookies, iced tea, and chocolate covered almonds.

I not only had a book signing in her lovely store, but I also was able to hang so much of my art, tucked into the nooks and crannies with the books. I talked to amazing people all evening, and had the best time.

If you have not been to the bookstore, you really should check it out! Leslie features so much local art, and many local artists. Link to her store.

My favorite part of the night was meeting every single person, and having the time to answer their questions, and discuss my photography. You guys are all the BEST!
