I am so pleased to have been one of the 20 artists selected for this benefit. The notice to me was short but I did get it and I got all the paperwork turned around in time. I’m pretty impressed with myself because this is a high-powered sponsor list including city councilmen? women? Who knows what’s politically correct…. and several Washington State senators and other movers and shakers.
The shindig costs 20 bucks BUT attendees get wine tastes from snazzy wineries, sexy appetizers, and the opportunity to rub elbows with artistes like me from 5-9:00 p.m. Hey, that’s cheaper than a movie if you buy popcorn and this actually is intended to benefit GRUB, a local group that grows food to fee those in need.
I can’t believe this is so right down my alley: garden art and wearable art? I mean really, that’s my thing so I’m really looking forward to it. I’m sure I’ll be nervous and out of my comfort zone and I won’t know anybody but still, I can show my work and get some good exposure. Matter is loaning me my art necklaces for the night, there is no way I would have time to crank out stuff to show and sell with about a week’s notice. I do love all these little bunny shots of some of the smaller things though. For my next trick I’ll come up with a cool way to display the pieces….
