And while we’re on the subject of the Hive and Stitch Fetish, I’ll be at the gallery all afternoon, from 1-6 today, so come downtown and see the works and say hello!
Three very important things to tell you today. Let’s get going so we have time to cover everything. Pencils ready?
1. Tonight is the debut of my artist in residence wall at the Hive Gallery! Saturday openings there are always very fun, a big party, with art to boot! Come by and see my naughty snowflakes!!
I get so busy, and every day I think, “wow, you need to post stuff…” and then I get swept up in the whirl of it all, again. So, let’s see, what have I been doing?
Last weekend I flew up to Berkeley, to see my gal Mel‘s son in Einstein on the Beach. Holy seminal wow!! What a piece of theatre! What a piece of art! I only wish I could see it a time or two more, to full absorb it; there was so much to take in over five hours.
Last weekend was wonderful! I had my opening at The Hive, my aunt came to town, two pieces sold in pre-sale, and many people that I just adore came down to say hi and show support. Really, it’s a bit of a blur. I remember saying hello to people, hugging them, then saying good bye to them and that I wish I’d had more time to chat. I spent a lot of time watching people interact with my work, which just slays me. People walk up look, double take, giggle, call their friends over, giggle.. it gives me great joy.

Yesterday’s installation went well. It was a whole new experience for me, and a bit overwhelming to begin, but by the time I left the gallery I felt pretty good. I got all the work hung, and half of my sign made. Couldn’t believe it, but I noticed a piece of lint under the glass, inside the frame of one of the pieces. How annoying! But I’m so glad I saw it yesterday rather than on Saturday night! Had it fixed on the way home yesterday.
And away we go…
I can’t believe it’s really here – how the hell did it get to be May? – but it is. At long last I am so very excited, proud, and happy to invite you all to the opening of my first featured art show! I have a whole wall to myself down at The Hive Gallery, starting this Saturday eve, May 5th. The Hive is big and very fun, with half a dozen shows up each month, giving different artists individual walls to fill. There is usually a group show in the center of the space and the night of the opening they have bands, performers, booze… all the right ingredients for a great time!
