I've never done a show!
So now it had several significant implications - not the least of which was that it meant having to postpone my second carpal tunnel surgery. I had actually been considering postponing it anyway, so this clinched it for me (although I still haven't made the call!) So began the panic of display, product, procedures, security, and a whole bunch of other questions pouring through my mind and stealing sleep.
I met with Barbara at the Arboretum on Thursday, selected a covered and lockable space with electricity, and discussed some of the issues on my mind. I also agreed to handle some of Sara Westermark's jewelry while she is away doing another show. Fortunately Sara has some display materials I can borrow! She's a pro at doing successful shows, and she's a fellow artist at Port City Pottery & Fine Crafts and Artistry. How I wish she could be there to "walk" me through my first show.
So....I am producing like crazy and holding everything back for this show now. Art in the Arboretum is Saturday and Sunday, October 10 and 11 at the New Hanover County Arboretum on Oleander Drive in Wilmington NC.

More photos to come!
This promises to be a glorious show with elegant examples of 2-D and 3-D art scattered throughout the beautiful gardens of the Arboretum. If you're in town, I urge you to visit.
