Huge news at Paper Ghost!
Hey folks! We’ve got some big changes happening at Paper Ghost and we are excited to finally be able to fill you in.
First, the BIG news: We have completely redesigned and recently relaunched our web site! It was a HUGE update, and now the site is full of new artwork and info about Paper Ghost. We’ve also added more to our Atlanta category, including a brand new Candler Park print by Sarah Neuburger.
Speaking of Candler Park, our second bit of news is that we have decided to close our physical studio space in one of our favorite neighborhoods in Atlanta. This does not affect Paper Ghost Press which is happily bigger than ever.
The McLendon Avenue studio space was originally rented to act as a shared co-working space and over the past several years, it has morphed into a gallery and retail space that was only open to the public during event hours. Our lease is up at the end of November, and we will be moving our studio to another location, and we will be focusing on wholesale accounts, online sales and festivals, rather than studio events.
We will be having a few incredible events in the space before it closes, and we are currently talking with other spaces about collaborating with them on future shows. All to say, Paper Ghost is alive and well.
Thank you all so much for making the three years that we had that studio space absolutely amazing. We had some great shows, weekly drawing nights, met some locals who have become best friends, and got to make art in a place that felt like home. Again, thank you. Keep an eye our for an EPIC Good-bye McLendon Party!!
Come see us at one of our upcoming events!
Upcoming Events (come say hello!)
September 30-31. Paper Ghost will exhibiting at the Candler Park Fall Fest.
October 19. Mike Lowery will be live painting a mural at the new Monday Night Brewing facility.
Also, Paper Ghost recently had the opportunity to bring the Paper Ghost Fortune Machine to some pretty awesome events, including the Museum of Design Atlanta’s (MoDA) opening of “Text Me”. The Fortune Machine is a fun, portable live drawing interactive booth. Participants fill out a short questionnaire about themselves and are then given a magical token. Once the token is inserted into the machine, the curtains open and the all-seeing pen comes to life! A real-life fortune teller is inside the booth who will draw a fortune that is unique and personal to each person.
