On November 19th - 20th you'll find me among 50 other local artists displaying during the annual Durham Art Walk Holiday Market. Hosted by the Durham Arts Council, this is an event with original art, fine crafts, live music and food. Artists will be exhibiting in booths outside of the Durham Arts Council, at 120 Morris Street, Durham, as well as inside the building around the galleries. You'll find me outside, not too far from the live music. Check out this beautiful interactive guide to find me, and other artists of interest.
This will be my second appearance at the juried market and I'll be bringing many of my small TeaScapes and Take a Seat series paintings, some original handpainted ARTaments featuring local spots, a small selection of TraillWorks yoga mats and throw pillows (which you can order on location if inventory runs out), and note cards, and a small number of limited edition giclée prints.
Due to managing my inventory, a limited number of prints, yoga mats, and throw pillows will be on hand. If you're local and coming to the Durham Art Walk Holiday Market, send me a note in your order and if I have the inventory we can arrange pickup that weekend. You can always order in advance for fulfillment in December. Shipping is available to people outside of Durham, NC, as well as local pickup in my studio.
If you plan on attending, send me an email so I know to look for you! Looks like the weather will be turning more seasonable, so dress warmly! Hoping for clear Carolina skies and good company.
Zinnia Swirl was the winner! Thank you to everyone who submitted responses to my survey and who entered the giveaway for a weekender bag. Ann from West Orange, NJ, was the lucky recipient and the bag is in transit.
I'm thrilled with the result; the proof will be in the pudding, so to speak, this weekend when it is made available in person at the Durham Arts Walk Holiday Market. I'll be exhibiting at a booth on 120 Morris Street, next to the Durham Arts Council (host of the walk). You can visit the art walk on Saturday, November 20th from 10 - 5pm and on Sunday, November 21st from 1 - 5pm.
I'll be showing works from my TeaScape, Take a Seat series and possibly some Red Carpet Icons. An assortment of TraillWorks Yoga Mats, and NEW: face masks and throw pillows. Additionally, I'll have a selection of note cards and prints available.
Throughout the weekend there will be 74 artists showing, plus food trucks and a schedule of live music. Please stop by and introduce yourself, and don't forget your mask!

HELLO y'all, I'm hosting a Giveaway!!!! In honor of my first appearance in a show in Durham, NC, I'm selecting a new yoga mat design to offer at the Durham Holiday Art Walk in November. Lucky for you, you don't need to live in Durham to help me out. All I need from you is your selection of a favorite mat design, and for your time, you'll be entered into a giveaway for a weekender bag, featuring Hot Stress Relief.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Jennie Traill Schaeffer
Deemed the Kitchen God's Artist by NJ Savvy Living for my sainted appliances, I'm now known more for my vibrant, meditational paintings of chairs set surprisingly in landscapes. Since relocating to NC from NJ, mothering my two sons, and caring for our rescue pup, Cider, took the lead. Now, that my Durham home studio is renovated it's open again for virtual art coaching and the resumption of my personal art and commissions. The work I make is inspired by my joy of teaching, exploring nature, and traveling. On The Teaching Artist Blog, I share my approach to teaching and educate my readers about my creative process.
