40 under 40!

40 Under 40 Intro video

Since I am getting ready for vacation (and making tons of lists to prep for packing, etc) I have not been doing much crafting. Sad, I know. BUT I have been looking for ideas of things to start when I get back (another list I have been adding on to).

I came across a post from the Smithsonian Museums in DC. They are putting together an exhibit titled “40 under 40” combining the works of 40 artists and crafters that are under the age of 40! They are making art from a variety of traditional and non traditional materials, so it should be a great exhibit for everyone!

If you go to their YouTube page you can search for 40 under 40, you can see the individual profiles and videos of each artist that is featured in this showing. I will definitely be watching all those videos at some point for tips and tricks, as well as new ideas for innovative creations!

Have a great Thursday!


About shadedlinescreations

I have been interested in the arts for longer than I can remember. I can’t dance, I can’t sing….so that just left creating something tangible and aesthetically pleasing. Having a bachelor’s in graphic communications, I’ve worked as a graphic designer or creative director for the past 10 years. I have now decided to branch out and embrace 3D design…something in college I completely didn’t understand and hated going to the class! However, rather than covering chairs in crayons or fabricating statues out of cardboard, I have chosen to create items that can be used and treasured for years to come. Each tile, coaster or piece that you see in the gallery or on my etsy store has been customized, and can even feature your own personal images if you so desire. So look around, get some ideas and let me take them to the next level by actually making them for you!
