Well I flew back from Tucson on Jan 19th totally exhausted and inspired. My two weeks with Mary Susan Cate of Merry Arttoones Reality Check Studios was intense and inspiring. She only made me cry once in the two weeks! You'd have to be there but after the 8th time of starting over I was beginning to think this wasn't for me. Mary and I came to an agreement in how best I learn and things got much better from there for both of us. Just a note from someone who has taken lots of workshops....we all learn and teach differently so both need to be open to adjusting on the fly!
I have two, not yet complete sculptures, of a standing and sitting female in paper-clay. I hope to complete work on them within the next month and then it will take probably 2-3 months for them to dry properly before firing. Look for them possibly to appear at the Art Waddle in May!
Speaking of the Art Waddle, our 7th annual event will be held, as always, the second Saturday in May. This year that is May 11th and the event is from 10-3 rain or shine. Look for more details soon!
My hand-building classes are starting up for the winter session and it looks like my morning and afternoon Tuesday classes are full. I have 2 openings for the Wednesday evening class if anyone is interested. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
In two weeks Gallery 195 will be having their annual strategic planning meeting so I will be posting soon after some happening things for the Gallery...in the meantime... stop by and see what is new for 2019 on the art floor.
