Field Trip, Bluprint and Surtex - The Best Design Shows in Town!

Every year I post many beautiful surtex promo pieces by new and established artists - for those new to the industry, the show is known as the premiere event for sourcing original art & design. I have reported on it for several years and you can find my articles on past surtex shows here.

BLUEPRINT is another popular surface design and print show that will take place on May 12 through May 16 in NYC. I will start posting their promo this week.

But there is a new show in town called Field Trip. It was created as a new pattern and illustration event and it will be hosted by a group of talented and established designers: Ampersand Design Studio, Lotta Jansdotter, Elizabeth Olwen, Emily Isabella, Kate Zaremba, Kelly Ventura, Victoria Johnson, Nottene, and Bikini Sous La Pluie. The curated event will take place on Monday, May 16th - the same time as Surtex, NSS, and ICFF at a gorgeous loft apartment in Manhattan's Garment District. The event is invitation only and invites can be requested by clients via the Field Trip website here. Clients will be able to license or purchase artwork, establish collaborations and enjoy cocktails and nibbles in a lively, informal setting.
