News and Upcoming Exciting Events

There have been so many exciting events going on in my life that I have hardly had the time to sit by the computer. I have some great video from a Karen Kunc and Zha Zai demo from Seattle to post in the near future. Also just went up- a intimate exhibition by Chandler O'Leary at the Pacific Lutheran University Gallery in Tacoma.
I was selected as one of 4 artists to complete work for the NoteWorld Servicing Center corporate offices in Tacoma. The time frame is very tight, so I have been working double time on that. I also have a solo show at the Friends Gallery at Lakewood Library going up on Nov 1st, so I need to get crankin' to have some more new pieces to put up. The images are the finished set of linocuts of the message series.

Here is a short list on some events coming up:
1. Exhibition in Dupont, Patriots Landing. Oct 2nd, 2009-Mar 28th, 2010, 1600 Marshall Cir, Dupont, WA 98327
2. Solo show at Lakewood Library. Nov 2nd-30th. 6300 Wildaire Rd SW, Tacoma, WA 98499
3. Beginning Polymerplate class taught on Tuesday mornings in November in my studio. More info and syllabus on my website front page.

4. Art At Work Month- a citywide event in Tacoma. Open studio tours, Nov 7-8th, 10am-4pm. F.S. Harmon Building, 2926 S. Steele St. Tacoma, WA.

5. A table at the 37th Annual Yule Boutique, at Pacific Lutheran University, Nov 22, 9am - 5pm. 12180 Park Avenue S, Tacoma, WA

6. In the works a portfolio print, some other exhibitions, a possible co-op membership in Seattle and children's book illustrations for a local author.

I had sworn to be busy after my husband deployed, and I can say the least I have accomplished that goal. It's all good though. I am thoroughly enjoying networking and making myself cozy in Washington. I miss my husband dearly every day, but keeping busy helps with having less time to feel sorry for myself and spending time with friends keeps me upbeat. Who knew water aerobics, bible study and walking dogs could provide so much joy in my life. :)
