Tammy joined the UncommonGoods artist team in the fall of 2009 – with her signature treasure boxes inspired by old-fashioned circuses and abandoned carnivals.
Tammy won the “best in show” award for her entire body of work which consisted of mixed media wall art and wire sculptures that teeter between joyful and eerie. In addition to showing her work, Tammy was also in a demo tent, and spent several hours a day showing people how she makes her wire sculptures. Very cool!
A little about the festival: The New Orleans Jazz Festival art fair is a national juried art fair that is
held every year in NOLA. This 10-day cultural festival not only consists of artists and craftspeople from all over the world, but also thousands of cooks and musicians serving up delicious Louisiana cuisine and world-renowned music. The show has three art areas: Congo Square, featuring mostly African American artists, Louisiana Marketplace, which features local artists, and the Contemporary Crafts area, which features artists from all over the country. Tammy participated in the Contemporary Crafts group with a focus on 3D mixed media.
