Future Events

I’ve applied for half a dozen shows for fall/holiday season. I still waiting to hear back on most of them. Here’s what I’ve got lined up so far:

I’m delighted to be returning to Art Westport in KCMO, Sept 8-10!!! I’m planning to be in a large tent divided into quad spaces (usually on Pennsylvania, near Doughnut Lounge).

Also returning to Bizarre Bazaar in Lawrence KS, Nov 24& 25 (Thanksgiving weekend)

Looks like there will be more “Car Trunk Tetris” to be played.

End of the Year Wrap Up-still in the black!

Here’s 2016 summary.This was an off year due to rotator cuff repair in May.  The rehab went well but it was slow and frustrating.

I participated in nine events this year-a little less than last year.  I returned to the marketplace in June with Maker Faire which was great. I ended the year with the Recycle Santa Fe Art Fest in Dec.  I participated in new events-Summit Art Fest and Kansas City Comicon.  I did not make the cut for Art Westport-probably a combo of weak photos of my work and new management/judges. I’m planning to apply for 2017. My work is in transition-using more flatware, less bike parts.

My booth arrangement keeps evolving-going lean and clean. I’m slow and fussy about my set up but breaking down is much faster.

There were other diversions this year including a pilgrimage to North Carolina to check out  Art-o-mat headquarters. So cool. I won’t be hosting a machine but I am proud to be an “Artist in Cellophane”.

Looking forward 2017.

Something New

This is my method: first there is an idea, then I try to execute the idea which causes a creative detour resulting in something else all together. This pendant is such an example. I wanted to make a sunburst design but that did not go as expected. Rather than scrap the whole thing, I salvaged the outer rim of the spoon and let my imagination figure out how to fill it.
