artintheparktent

 

Ashantilly once again set up in Art in the Park during the Blessing of the Fleet. New this year were T-Shirts and Tote Bags printed on a small etching press donated to the Print Shop. Thanks to Nicholas Silberg, Chair of the Art Department at Savannah State University, who carved a beautiful wood block with a shrimp image for us to use. Board members Cathy and Sara turned Print Shop into Sweat Shop and printed many items prior to the festival. They were a huge success and the design won Honorable Mention in the judging!

ASHANTILLY ATTENDS JAZZ & ART FESTIVAL IN WOODBINE!

Ashantilly set up a booth at Woodbine's annual Jazz & Art Festival.  Letterpress printing was demonstrated with the small Kelsey tabletop press, and visitors to the booth were given a momento of the event! Arts and crafts were displayed and great jazz played! A beautiful setting along the Satilla Riverwalk added to the atmosphere.
