Twenty four people will be attending the arts workshop. I can't wait!

Saturday, May 30, 2009

Today I went to a Women's Caucus for Art networking day. Susan Fisher Sterling from the Womens Museum gave the keynote talk. She's a peach, funny, witty, outspokenly feminist, super knowledgable, AND she remembered me!! from 1991 when we had the national WCA honorees dinner (and show) there at the museum - she sat next to me and told me I was doing fine as the organizer right at that moment. (whew) That was a lifetime ago, and I can't believe I am still a member of this organization. I am not active in it at all, but it is finally looking truly more multi-cultural - a huge relief and also attractive.
I showed an encaustic piece during the art share time - I'm feeling so good about the recent work, it'd be a great time to pitch it in other places. Finding those is my challenge.

Tomorrow I am leading a workshop called "Artists Liberation for Everyone." The idea is to get support of the artists for each other, and to teach others to be allies/supporters of the artists in their lives. Sounds good, doesn't it.

Now that I have a blog (thanks to Bonnie Macallister who told us at the networking day how to just go ahead and do it (!) and to my husband who had been nudging me previously) I want to write everything at once. I want to write about my show at Ceres Gallery but will wait until another day.
