The Un-birthday group is a new community group for women 21-35 that are mostly new to State College (some members are originally from state college). The Un-birthday Group takes the work out of finding people and skips the "do you maybe want to hang out sometime" and the pain of trying to decide what to do, when, and where. We meet and have parties when it's not anyone's birthday and try to raise funds for the community =)
Today I went out to the Surface Artist Cooperative which is located at 201 Elmwood Street in State College, PA to meet Staci Egan theindependent artist and small business owner of Contempo Jewelry.
Staci is a proud member of the community and an involved memberof the following: Surface Artist Cooperative, Art Alliance, WiNGS (Womens Network Group), the Central Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, Gallery Shop committee chair.
I swear I could have stayed and talked to her for hours on end in fact I think I may have stayed there talking to her for more than an hour (sorry for invading your day Staci!) I couldn’t leave, I didn’t want to leave she was just so interesting and her studio space is wonderfully inviting.
I’d describe her work but I think words wouldn’t do justice so I recommend checking it out, you can do so by following these links:
