This year has been one of many firsts for me, including new shows and sales. Just yesterday I sent off a piece (actually the one you see to the left) to be included in the Strictly Functional Pottery National, an annual show out of Lancaster, PA. This past weekend I held a studio sale at the site of my first studio, Middle Mt. Pottery, outside Hood River, OR during the county’s annual Gravenstein apple celebration. While traffic was not as heavy as other special weekends in Hood River County, many loyal friends and customers came out to support me…it warms my heart so!!
Next month (9/29-10/2) I will be participating in the Local 14 Show & Sale at the World Forestry Center in Portland, OR. This is a fine art & craft sale put on by an all-women group of artists. I was juried in as a guest artist for this year’s show.
A mere week after that (10/8-9) I will be one of eight featured artists in the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center (in The Dalles, OR) for the 25th anniversary celebration of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Act. During the day this free community event will include live music, art, living history, recreation, bike tours, local food & beer and more. On Saturday evening, the Discovery Center will hold the 4th Annual Vintage Evening of Wine & Art, a fundraiser for the Center. A piece of mine will be included in the auction. Check out this page for tickets and other information.
Two weeks after the Discovery Center event I’ll be loading Soulgama! Yikes, this is going to require a lot of pots…better get back to it!
