Fall Shows to Look Forward to!

Here is a beautiful example of *one* thing I am digging on this summer:  Glass installations by Dale Chihuly at the Dallas Arboretum.  This on is located behind a wall of water, taken at night.  Wow.

In general, however, summer in Texas never fails to bum me out, even when there are loads of new ideas in my sketchbook and a nice, big new studio in which to work!  Am I just a whiny baby who can’t deal with the heat of Texas?  That would be an affirmative, my friend.  However, there’s nothing like the first crisp day to instantly lift my gloom and get me doing the Snoopy dance again!  So let’s all get on the trolly and imagine that we’re already there… in September, or better still, October!  

We’ve already got some shows coming up in those months, so if you’re a planner and you really want to find us this year. feel free to mark up those calendars!

Show Schedule for Spring

We’re so excited because we’ve been re-accepted into the White Rock Local Market (alternatively known as the Green Spot Market because of the gas station on that corner). 

Date is Saturday, March 10 from 8:00 am till 1:00 (might be till 2:00 if it’s a beautiful day) with a whole heaping helping of NEW hypertufa, wood, glass, jewelry and just cool things for you to use to beautiful your home and office, or to give as gifts to those deserving folks in your life.  (like teachers!)  I have a bunch of sweet little vase-lets with live plants for less than $15 that I hope you’ll squee over.  Also some larger-format table pieces that utilize driftwood from White Rock Lake.  I think that might be about as local as it gets.

Later in the Spring, going into summer I daresay, we’ll proudly be representing our neighborhood at the East Dallas Art and Garden Tour on Sunday, May 20!

This annual event is not to be missed, whether you’re into gardening, art, architecture, snooping into the lives of others… ha ha, just kidding there… but truly this is one of the more interesting and edifying of the many home tours that are offered in Dallas every year.  There are nine gardens on offer, three from each of three East Dallas neighborhoods – Forest Hills, Little Forest Hills, and Casa Linda.  Since there is such a concentration of artsy/craftsy/outdoorsy folks living in those areas, the results of the tour are often very pleasantly surprising.

We’ll update the blog to let you know exactly which house you will be able to find us, with our concrete/hypertufa pots and wood sculptures.
