Last Show of the Season
May 23, 2012
My last show of the season is now history. I didn’t have much time to document, but I love this venue and want to share what I have. The Columbia Gorge Art Festival is a fundraiser for the Corbett Education Foundation which provides scholarships to Corbett students.
Before the doors open, it’s quiet enough to grab a few shots.
Pam is the marvelous show coordinator and runs the event with a cool head and impeccable business skills. She is fabulous to work with and we all adore her.
My east neighbor for the weekend was Tacy Jones of Eagle Creek Rock Jewelry and felted bags. Her rocks, jewelry and felted bags & hats are beautiful.
My west neighbor was Laurie Miller who has been my neighbor at this venue for many years. She has some very cool garden signs (one of which I purchased) that I loved so much, I commissioned her to make several (ok, a dozen) more for me. I didn’t get a picture of her booth, so lifted this image from her blog.
Had a great time connecting with other artists, visiting with volunteers and schmoozing with patrons. Next stop, replenishing my galleries; then preparing to teach at Half Moon Creek LLC in Palmer Alaska (where my class is full!!) and Pacific Art Glass in L.A. CA. If you’re near LA I believe there are still spots open & I’d love to see you!
