I am leaving tomorrow for the opening of the Connections: Small Tapestry International exhibit in San Jose, CA. So today I'm getting my things ready to go, and the house ready for me to be gone a for week, as I'll be visiting my parents as well.
Before I can go, I also have to get the tapestries shipped to the Fiber Celebration exhibit. Shipping is not a small job, as I've mentioned before. One of the pieces that is going is flat and is mounted, and the other is large, but can be rolled up, so they will probably be in separate crates, which is best for insurance anyway.
When I get home, I must begin a flurry of studio work. I will be showing, beginning June 1st, in the Blue Pig Gallery in Palisade, CO. It is the nicest gallery in this area, so I am excited to have been invited to show there. The summer season is very active in Palisade, beginning with a huge Bluegrass Festival, then a Peach festival (Palisade is where the wonderful Colorado fruit orchards are), a Wine festival (ditto for Colorado vineyards, which are becoming legend), and with concerts along the Colorado River and Farmer's Markets several times a week just across from the gallery all summer long. So I'm hoping the summer will find me in the business of keeping my space stocked, in spite of the poor economy. But today, I must pack and ship....
I do hope to see that some of you find your way to San Jose.... la, la, la, la la la la la la la! (And if you know what that refers to, you're probably as old as I am!)
