This month, tart exhibits the stunning cut paper artwork by Karin Neff. From tart’s website, about Karin’s approach: Reducing a three-dimensional landscape or flower to two dimensions requires hours and hours of just looking; mentally de-constructing the parts that make up the whole.

Karin also creates reproductions of her original pieces (check out the notecards!) and she put together a fabulous 2013 calendar. One of you lucky ducks will win one! Leave a comment, answering this question: What’s your favorite part of summer? For another entry, like tart on facebook and leave a separate comment here telling us you did so.

  2. That cut paper is *exquisite*. Summer love…I only get one? Dang, this year I’d say dining outside. This is the first time in years that we’ve had a good place to eat outside.

    Karin’s work is absolutely stunning….I think I had my favorite moment of summertime today when there was a slight autumnal feel in the air this morning, but when I then stood in my garden listening to the crickets with the hot sun beating down and juicy tomatoes ready to pick, it was pure heavenly summer. katcoons99@yahoo.com
