Annies is now carrying Goodbyn lunchboxes! Goodbyns eliminate the need for wasteful plastic bags and drink boxes. They come with 5 seperately sealing compartments, an 8-oz bottle for drinks, and more than 275 stickers for personalization! They will last the whole school year, but are recylable when you're done with them. Very green, and very fun.

This month, we are excited to share the work of Susan Martin, local artist and employee at Annie's Art and Frame. Inspired by the richly textured surfaces of the abandoned bunkers at Fort Worden outside of Port Townsend, Susan Martin's work features extreme close-up views of the rusted and faded pipes, walls, ceilings, and floors. The surfaces, realistically rendered in charcoal, pencil, and acrylic paint, give the impression of an organically textured abstract when viewed without background imagery. Her subjects and the technique of her work will appeal to both the lovers of photo-realism and abstract art, while her compositions' sizes (ranging from 6" square to 24" long), make her work accessible to everyone. Come and enjoy this original concept beautifully executed!
