Lots of exciting things have been happening these days! I don't want to go into detail just yet, because I want things to be a little more concrete first, but rest assured, I will post some cool news soon.

One thing I do need to post right now is an apology to anyone who may have made a special trip over to Cafe Creme in Bath to see my solo show...because it's been bumped! There was a scheduling issue, but hopefully things are resolved now. I'm slated to hang my work on Sunday, June 9th. The show will still be up through the end of July, so even though I missed out on any Memorial Day traffic, I'll get in on the Fourth of July/Bath Heritage Days action. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit bummed out about the snafu, but I'm trusting in the Universe and its timeline for me. So, if you're looking to treat yourself to a lovely coffee drink after next weekend, consider making a trip over to Cafe Creme! You'll be glad you did...and so will I.

odds and ends

I don't have a long story to tell about one particular experience or happening, but a bunch of little things are going on, so I figured I ought to touch on a few different topics in this post.

First of all, I got new business cards! I am really happy with how they came out, and I'm thrilled with how quickly I received them. I ordered them VERY late on a Monday night (so late, it was almost Tuesday morning) and they arrived the following Saturday...and I hadn't even paid for expedited shipping. Thank you, VistaPrint! Here is a picture:

Second, I got a lesson in iMovie yesterday! Blake came over and brought a ton of footage he shot of my solo show at Curtis Memorial Library (video from the opening, still shots from the opening, video from the day I took the show down, and still shots from the day I took the show down). Getting all that information at once was a little overwhelming, but I am excited at the prospect of making another YouTube video. Speaking of YouTube, Brunswick TV3 is re-running my "artist profile" from last year! Here are the dates/times:

Tue., May 14th, 6 pm
Thurs., May 16th, 5:30 pm
Fri., May 31st, 4 pm
Sat., June 1st, 3 pm
Mon., June 3rd, 5:30 pm
Wed., June 5th, 6:30 pm
Fri., June 14th, 4 pm (just in time for Second Friday Art Walk!)

Third, I got a call from Arlie at Cafe Creme: I'll be hanging a solo show there on Saturday, May 25th at 5:30 pm! This show will run through the end of July, which I'm really excited about. Cafe Creme is a great little coffee shop, and the location is fantastic - it's right on the corner of Front Street and Centre Street, smack dab in the middle of downtown Bath. Here's a link to their Facebook page, if you haven't had a chance to stop by yet:

Last, but not least, I just got an email from Five Rivers Arts Alliance: I am one of six artists who will be participating in a group show at Thornton Oaks in Brunswick! The show opens on Thursday, July 25th and runs through Monday, September 2nd. The call for artists went out yesterday and it was a "first come, first served" situation. I am fortunate that I was home when the email arrived and was able to send in my application right away. It will be interesting to see what the mix of artwork will look like, since the selection process was somewhat random. I'm sure it will all work out!

that's groovy, baby

I am SO tickled right now: my work is the subject of the lovely and talented Sage Lally's school art project! Sage is Terry's 16 year old cousin, and she contacted me a few months ago. Her class assignment was to profile an artist, and she chose me! It was to be a large, end-of-the-semester project, and I was asked to send along an artist's statement, a brief bio, and some images of my work, which I did. I had no idea what the end result would be like, but Sage's mom, Leigh, was kind enough to send a photo my way the other day...and here it is!
I don't know about you, but I would LOVE to be represented by the Groovy Gallery! That looks like my kind of place. Thank you, Sage, for making me smile!
