A Show by Shelby Collins

One of Pigment’s newer additions to the team, Miss Shelby Collins, had her opening reception for her Senior Exhibition Monday night at Point Loma Nazarene University. She’s been working really hard on this all year, so we were sure to be there and show our love and support.

Inspired by Amy and Pigment’s carefully curated concepts, Shelby jumped at the opportunity to work with us and we’re so happy to have her.

We couldn’t be more proud of her on this day. Congratulations Shelby! If you get a chance, swing by the store and say HI! — She’s really, super nice. 

Inside the Artist Studio

Hey Friends! It’s Monday, but we’re not mad at it. Ray at Night happened this past Saturday (if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, do it! Every second Saturday of each month from 6-10 p.m on Ray street in North Park, San Diego),  and so did the very first “Inside the Artist Studio” tours, put on by North Park for the Arts and sponsored by North Park Main Street.  We got to be a part of it – Pigment owner and artist Amy Paul‘s studio was on the map. Aside from having a rad store, she also has a really awesome studio!

Well, we are happy to be posting about a fun event that happened this past weekend with our friends Tangerine Tree Photography. The Modern Love Show, an alternative approach to the standard bridal show. We were happy to help spruce up their set up with our favorite Gus Modern Adelaide Sofa, a few planters and some other Pigment goodies!
