Why send a generic holiday greeting card when you can spread cheer inspired by Overton Park? This year, Overton Park Conservancy is proud to offer two beautiful card designs by artist Martha Kelly. These stunning prints of Martha’s woodblock scenes “Forest Reflections” and “Phlox” work as both holiday cards and year-round greetings, so stock up now–when they’re gone, they’re gone!
About the Cards
“Forest Reflections” depicts the view from the Greensward across Rainbow Lake to the edge of the Old Forest. “Phlox” journeys into the woods, with a view of Martha’s favorite trail in bloom with radiant wildflowers.
Each 5×7 folded card is blank inside, with a message on the back letting your recipient know that proceeds from their card benefit the Conservancy’s work to maintain and enhance the park. Not only will your loved ones receive a beautiful work of art, they’ll know that their card is helping to make Overton Park a great public space.
How to Order
Cards may be purchased in packs of 10, and each card comes with a blank white envelope. Packs are $20 each, with a flat $6 shipping and handling rate for your entire order. Please submit your order by Friday, November 18, 2016 to guarantee on-time delivery. We’ll mail your order to you in late November so you’ll have plenty of time to send them out before the holidays.

About the Artist
Martha Kelly grew up in Memphis and has lived a few blocks from the park for 22 years. She walks daily in the Old Forest with her dog and paints there regularly. Overton Park is central to her landscape work and has been a muse for her since the very beginning of her art career. When Dixon Gallery & Gardens asked her to do an exhibition of southern landscapes last year, Overton Park was the central source for her images, including “Forest Reflections.”
Martha has for years told anyone who will stand still long enough to listen that she has the best of all possible worlds, living in the heart of the city and walking in a forest every morning. This park is a critical escape from the sights, sounds, and exhaust fumes of development for all mid-city dwellers. The park is key for Martha’s quality of life and for her work, which is why she spends time working to preserve and protect it and planting trees for future generations to benefit from as she has benefited from the current ones.
