changes are afoot/ pic of the day is moving

Hello dear friends,
It has been awhile! Hope you have all been well. I have been taking a summer vacation since launching Modern Originals,  but I am getting ready to return with new posts and lots of news. Just wanted to let you know about a bit of a change. I will no longer be posting to this site for Pic of the Day. In fact, I have a new website up and will be posting to the Pic of the Day section there from now on. So head over to lesliewilliamson.com and I'll get to posting in a few days. Look forward to reconnecting with you all soon!

Modern Originals Booksigning NYC/the Future Perfect/ Sunday, May 18th/11am

Hello friends! I have just returned to the US after a month of work and book events in Europe and wanted to make sure to share my first Modern Originals book event in the USA!
This Sunday at the Future Perfect in NYC, I will be signing my book and doing a short slideshow as part of TFP's Design Brunch. The address is 55 Great Jones Street and it begins at 11am.
TFP has curated a beautiful installation for NY Design Week of furniture sculpture, art and lighting and I am honored to be among the wonderful designers and artists who have work included. So yes, there are a few of my rare limited edition prints hanging as well - my never seen abstractions. In addition the work of some of my favorite artists are also on view - like Maria Moyer, Ryosuke Yazaki, and Lindsey Adelman.
It will be a feast for the eyes!!! Do come out and say hello this Sunday. I'd love to see you! xx
