Sawdust Art Class
While the Sawdust Art Festival continues through the summer I am unable to offer the usual weekend five-hour workshops. However, that does not mean that creativity has to stop for any of us.  Wednesday evenings I teach at the festival itself. The classes alternate: 
In Studio One from 7 to 8:30--$2 to make bookmarks/gift tags with Faith Fontan and me.
        August 2
        August 16
        August 30
In the Jewelry Classroom from 7 to 8:30--$45 gets an hour and a half of mixed media fun with a glass of wine or beer and you take home a finished piece, matted and ready to frame.
         August 9
         August 23
Why not come down to the festival and enjoy the cool breezes, entertainment, an appreciation of many kinds of art, AND a fun mixed media class?  Hope to see you soon!

Mother of Exiles
The Emma Lazarus poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty is a not so gentle reminder of what our country has long cherished. We are a melting pot of cultures and countries that is currently challenged in these troubling times as to how to continue upholding these values while protecting our shores. So it seemed fitting that, as a part of my Celebration of Women series, the Mother of Exiles (as the Statue is called in the full poem) be represented. Come see the complete collection of women at the Sawdust Art Festival until September 3, Booth #202.

selling now!
Complications continue to arise as the summer season gets underway, yet all continues to seem wonderful and the days are filled with joyful moments.  
The Celebration of Women series showing at the Sawdust Art Festival in my booth #202 is being well-received for which I am ever so grateful.  
Exciting news is that I have begun doing reproductions of the ones sold on wood and they are really beautiful, top quality pieces.  YAY!!
So, complications aside...all is well!
