You can’t hang around New York too long without meeting a lot of really talented people. So when The International Arts Movement Gallery in Manhattan hosted a launch party for Straw House, Wood House, Brick House, Blow we asked some of our friends if they’d join us and showcase their brilliant work. You’ve already seen the great book trailers from Plywood Pictures, which we viewed on the big screen at the party,
but there are also eight visual artists who graciously contributed art inspired by Straw House, Wood House, Brick House, Blow to the gallery. It was such an honor to have these incredibly talented people take time out of their schedules, and everyone was thrilled with the final art. I’ve included some pictures, but stay tuned to the blog…soon I’ll have a post up describing the gallery and the artists in more detail.
The theme of the night was, as you can imagine, Straw House, Wood House, Brick House, Blow, and it was reflected in everything from the décor – the books were balanced on hay bales, and sunflowers and hydrangeas gave the room a more natural feeling – to the refreshments, and the brick walls of the gallery certainly helped to set the mood.
We served a different drink for each novella – mango passion fruit bellinis for Straw House, rum and coke for Wood House, strawberry bellinis for Brick House, and mulled hot apple cider for Blow (you had to blow on it to cool it off…get it? hyuk hyuk ).
The rest of the night was devoted to talking, noshing, and book signing. Everyone posed with the book – you’ll have to check out the Facebook page to see all the pictures. All in all, the party was a huge success, and it was wonderful to
be able to thank everyone who came together to help make Straw House, Wood House, Brick House, Blow a reality.
