Misprint Thursday is our inaugural featured artist at the Bistro Olive. Her work has barely been up one week and already I can't picture our venue without her touch. She eagerly accepted the challenge when we talked about a month ago, kicking the ideas around and trying to decide what would become of our business concept. Today she is an amazing force throughout all three floors of the Bistro.
You can find out more about her artwork - specifically her show at the Bistro Olive in other blogs and podcasts!

Many of you may not know that the Bistro underwent some serious renovations the day of the Grand Opening. The Shops @ Marco Island builder agreed to put in some internal stairs. She connected the gallery to the upper levels. It united the end units in a much more cohesive way than we had done on our own with teleporters. Misprint was unavailable that day until about 2 hours before the opening. She gracefully accepted the changes and worked with the modifications that needed to be made on the 2nd floor due to the changes in the stairwell. It would have been hard for any designer, but for an artist who had designed the flow of her work, the play of the light on the walls and the ceiling, it put an exceptional dent in the last minute preparations.
Misprint entertained guests throughout the evening. She had welcomed passersby the day before and invited new guests as she worked to assemble the exhibit. She continues to have fans drop by and now I meet her admirers when I am out exploring as well. Misprint has made quite an impression on the art world of SL. She can be found secretly creating objects out over the ocean off the pier at Savoy while others are dancing to straight jazz. She can be found just enjoying a quiet moment at a table at the Bistro. She is someone I hope you take the time to get to know - even if it is only through her art you can explore.
Olive (I love) Misprint Thursday! (and just so you know... I can't help calling her Misprint Tuesday because we had her opening on a Tuesday... OOPS!!!) Make sure you schedule a trip to the Shops @ Marco Island before her exhibit closes in mid-August. Spend a few extra Lindens to purchase one of her beautiful pieces - as far as art goes, hers is amazingly affordable. Enjoy and soak it up... the olive sparkles wafting through the air on Marco Island won't last long!
