hex signs

I have several Pennsylvania Dutch inspired hex signs still available on my etsy site.

Hex Sign

Hex signs are a common motif of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art, frequently seen painted on barns in central and eastern Pennsylvania. Often taking the form of stars within circles, these designs grew out of the Fraktur and folk art traditions of the mid 1800’s. Some believe that the term “hex” has occult connotations, as the word is derived from the German “Hexe” and the Dutch “Heks”, meaning witch. In recent years, hex signs have come to be used as talismans to ward off bad fortune.

Hex Four

These hex signs were painted with the intention of creating a sense of plenty in the home where it is hung. Each hex sign features an eight-pointed star on a 15” x 15” fence board. Slight variations in the wood’s character reveal upcycled origins, with designs painted with acrylic and a polymer varnish used as a sealant. Some of the works also contain collaged paper.

abundance and gratitude

Last week I had my very first art show at Stripe MEN and it was fabulous. Thank you to everyone that came out to show their support. The place was packed for over three hours and the store had the most sales on a first Friday event! Here are some pictures. Below is the store as seen from the front entrance.

hex signs and art show

It’s two weeks until my First Friday art show!

Come join me on December 4th at stripe Men and see my hex sign series ‘Abundance.’ The ‘Abundance’ series was painted with the intention of creating a sense of plenty in the home where it is hung. Each hex sign features an eight-pointed star on a 15” x 15” fence board. Slight variations in the wood’s character reveal upcycled origins, with designs painted with acrylic and a polymer varnish used as a sealant. Some of the works also contain collaged paper.

If you like the signs and can’t make it to the show, you can buy them in my etsy store.
