Closing reception of “Sleeping in the Forest, Waking in the Desert”

It’s been a busy few weeks for me and I’m glad to be back to the blog.

I enjoyed a lovely closing reception at Runnels Gallery on Friday and want to thank everyone who came out to see the art and show their support in general. I really appreciated the feedback and great turnout.

I have some pictures of the evening to share with you!

First, there was the food (That is warmed caramel dip… mmm)!

Although we didn’t manage to document all the goodies, we couldn’t miss the crazy cupcakes!

There were so many great people who attended (and yes, I am poised to devour this cupcake)…

…and there was discussion of some alternate hilarious interpretations of the art:

The guest book filled up…

Keeping busy

With fewer posts up the past few weeks you’re probably wondering what I’ve been up to. As the sole juror to an upcoming exhibition: Simulare Vitae, Student Juried Exhibition which will be on display from November 1st to December 2nd at Runnels Gallery, I’ve been quite busy going through submissions! With over one hundred entries it’s been quite a difficult decision-making process.

I will remind you closer to the date but just so you know, the reception and awards ceremony for Simulare Vitae is Friday, Dec. 2, 5–6:30 p.m.

In other news I’ve put that new sewing room to good use recently and made my first bag:
