Full circle.... twenty years ago I drove from BEMIDJI to St Paul to sit through hours of classes and take a state licensing exam - for insurance sales! Now I’m working on 90 class hours and an exam for realty sales. We certainly do take some crazy roads in this lifetime!
Not to worry, I have some AMAZING art events and an artist residency on the horizon too! I have to keep the balance, right?
Thus weekend will mark my 5th year in the Bemidji Area First City of Arts Studio Cruise as a demonstration artists. See you then!
First up, I just picked up some brochures for the MacRostie Art Center's Studio Tour in Grand Rapids, MN. Let me know if you need one. The tour is coming up October 7 & 8.
I will be demonstrating my basket weaving in one of the art studios in the MacRostie with two other artists.
Next up will be the First City of Arts Studio Cruise for the Bemidji Area, October 20-22.
I've reached a point in my prepping for the American Craft Council Show - St Paul, where I needed a little break. No, I didn't go anywhere. I did need to order more reed. While I'm waiting, I've been playing with bases my sister made for me from a tree that fell in a storm last summer. The vases average about 10" tall and are fun to make. I think I'll aim for a dozen and then move back to finish my antler baskets. My plan is to bring at least 30 new antler pieces plus these vases and some dreamcatchers. I'm on number 19 now.
