Winter Magnolia Designs hosts debut party and pop-up shop at All Souls Pizza


Artist and Honky Tonk frontwoman Trish Tripp has never been afraid to set out into new creative territory. Since forming popular Country band Hearts Gone South four years ago, she’s discovered that her audience enjoys the t-shirts for sale at the merch table as much as the music on the stage. So now, those popular t-shirts will be the star of the show at a pop-up shop event to launch her newest line of designs.

Taking place at All Souls Pizza on November 6th, from noon to 4pm, the Winter Magnolia Pop-up Shop will feature live music from Wyatt Yurth and the Gold Standard, refreshments, snacks, a photo booth, and fun and games. As well as selling her t-shirts, Tripp wants to celebrate the expansion of her business with friends and family.

Tripp creates the art for her unique t-shirt designs with scratchboards- an illustrative technique using sharp knives to etch into a thin layer of white China clay that is coated with black India ink. The designs are then printed by local screenprinters and her friends, Lightning Bolt Ink.
