Ruby Silvious is a visual artist and graphic designer. Her recent work includes experimenting on recycled and found materials. On January 3, 2015, she started a project called 363 Days of Tea, a visual daily record of her impression of the moment, using the emptied-out tea bag as her canvas, and altering it to create a new work of art every day for 363 days. She draws, paints, prints and collages moody, evocative and sometimes whimsical art on used teabag paper. She is the author of a newly published coffee table book, 363 Days of Tea: A Visual Journal on Used Teabags. Silvious was educated in the U.S., Europe and Asia; she currently lives in New York's Hudson Valley. Her art is exhibited internationally, and is featured in public and private collections.

poster for Atlantic Gallery

In 1974 painters and print-makers founded Atlantic Gallery in Brooklyn as an artists' cooperative. In 1979 Atlantic Gallery migrated to SoHo, and in 2007 to Chelsea, having added photographers and sculptors to its community of emerging and established artists. 2012 saw Atlantic Gallery move further west to the Landmark Arts Building at 548 West 28th Street, close to a stairway to the High Line. The historic building, which also has an entrance at 547 West 27th Street, is home to more than two dozen art galleries. Born from the energy of ’70’s New York art scene, Atlantic Gallery exhibitions continue to focus on innovation and excellence. As an organization of independent artists, Atlantic Gallery is committed to supporting creative freedom and promoting professionalism.

wow! but must say I really can't be bothered with tea bags there is so many beautiful papers that have been made for making marks, ditto deep black indelible ink! A toast to the art paper & ink makers of the world!
