New Art at Lilla Rogers Studio


Friday I traveled to Lilla Rogers Studio for a fabulous event. Lilla invited art directors, art buyers, and designers to a private viewing of new art. She displayed stacks of gorgeous prints, scrap-booking ideas, and jewelry along with various products made beautiful with her artists' work. This was the first studio event of this type she's hosted, but hopefully Lilla will do more of these in the future. To me it seemed like art buyer's heaven...and inspiration heaven!!
Most impressive though is that Lilla knows how to create a fabulous experience. I got to meet Lilla's staff who were all warm, welcoming, and hospitable. There was delicious food along with hot and cold beverages. What made the event even more memorable? Everyone went home with a "goody bag" ---a lovely canvas bag with little product treasures inside. What a perfect ending! Be sure to check out her updated website.
