We had a beautiful day yesterday for Affair of the Arts.  It is fun to see familiar faces year after year, and we hear many compliments about the quality of the show and the beauty of the venue.  The Shores of Turtle Creek is such a sun-lit, expansive place, so perfect for an art show.  We are lucky to be able to work with them each year.

I wanted to get some updated pictures of the show, but fell short, (busy day…)  so excuse the dated picture above from one of our first shows.  It does give a feel for the venue, though, so I posted it anyway. People loved being able to stroll through, glass of chilled wine in hand, and view, purchase, or just chat with the artists.

Our artists are all exceptional, and wonderful to work with. I could spend all day mentioning each one, but you can follow the link to see pictures and links:  www.affairofthearts.org.  I would like to make a special mention of  guest musician, Nick LiChard, who was kind enough to play and sing live for us at the beginning of the show.  It set a great tone, and compliments were flying.  Truly a talented artist!  See more about Nick:  http://www.facebook.com/eyesforever3

Another great outcome of this year’s show is the collaboration between Rowanberry Studio and blacksmith artist Will Slagel.  Will was commissioned a customized iron stand for my co-worker at Rowanberry, Amy Guanci.  She was kind enough to lend it to me for displaying my latest piece, Kaleidescope Mandala:

Unfortunately for Amy, she couldn’t enjoy it for long, because it sold!
