Catching Up

The 5x5 show officially opened on Sunday. It was a pretty successful day I think. Not tooo many people showed up, but enough came and opened up their wallets. The pic I have posted above is all I have had time to post right now. The ones I took are still in the camera, and so this came from my Mum's blog (I don't think I would have ever imagined using the phrase "my Mum's blog" 5 years ago)
Susan and I set up on Saturday, and it took over 2 hours to clear out the old stuff from the front and get all the new pieces artfully arranged.
There was food, and drink, and I think everything was pretty well received.
I did find out that I have a 1 person fan club. I guess this guy comes in and buys my altered teapots all the time and gives them away as gifts.

I will be teaching classes for Dave for the next few days (tonight, tomorrow, Monday, and Tuesday) while he is away in Bend Oregon for a family reunion.

Susan from the Galleria in Inglewood has asked for several large pieces to go into a home decorating and design show in the Round Up Centre in September, and I am currently working on a couple of really large, low and wide bowls, plus I have a huge planter waiting to be glazed. Hopefully these will survive and that she likes them.

Gallery Opening July 20, 2008

5x5 Loud & Clear is the name of the show. There will be 3 painters and 2 potters. This is going to be the last group show for Centennial Gallery. The Gallery will be moving to a new location in August, with a Galla Re-Opening set for Sept. 13/08. The new space is smaller than their current location, so there will not be enough room to have group shows. There will be a small room that will be used for single artist showings/Artist of the month type events.
