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!

 

This weekend is my last art show of the season and one of the most fun.  It’s a fundraiser for Corbett Education Foundation, held at the Corbett Grade School May 19-20.  The volunteers who run this show are fabulous – they take great care of the artists and our customers.  They help us move in and back out; provide students to help us with labeling; conduct all sales for us; and are even available to answer questions about our work so we don’t have to be there if needed elsewhere.  I will be there all weekend because I love talking with you about my work!  Oh and they provide YOUR lunch for a donation!

The hardest part is deciding what to take and what to leave at home.  In addition to my kiln-formed glass, and my friend Alex Farnham‘s blown glass you’ll find woodworking, ceramics, paintings, jewelry, basketry, candles, soap, photography, fiber art, and even plants!

Directions:
I-84 to the Exit 22, go up Corbett Hill Road to Historic
Hwy and turn right.  Event is about 1/4 mile on left.

Hope to see you there!!
