SAM_0416 (480x640)Next up in my “Summer Finds” series of things I have found while touring around church fairs, flea markets, arts festival, and country auctions over the past few month is the artwork of Left of the Moon.

I have been wanting to post about Left of the Moon since I first spotted them at an art fair in Wolfeboro, NH in July. However, I hesitated as there is no solid contact information or website for the artist, which makes me sad as I love the work and am interested in purchasing a piece.

Left of the Moon is the work of a local New Hampshire artist who makes amazing mixed media assemblages out of discarded vintage guitars. The artist, a woman with whom I chatted, is very talented and has created her works centered on music – mostly classic rock acts of the last century like The Grateful Dead (below right) and The Beatles.

SAM_0421 (480x640)In speaking with the artist, it seems as though she was just returning to showing her work after taking several years off. When asked for contact information, she referred me to her fledgling Left of the Moon Facebook page.

The Left of the Moon Facebook page is sparse and included this brief description:

“Original Art Work for home, office, yard, I make it you decide what to do with it, I will help you with that if you need me. I use recycled material and have for years, Reverse art, 3-d, multimedia, painted clothing and shoes, embroidery, and much more.”

I am keeping my eye out to see if the artist adds more to the page and information about her delightful work – like The Beatles work (below):
