Unique Residency Experience in Joshua Tree National Park

Jewelry for trees: Beaded Necklace. Joshua Tree National Park, 2017

Spending time off the grid is no easy feat. Casey Sheppard has made it her life. After traveling the US in her van for a year, with her dog as the only companion, it was time to take someone along to share the nomadic experience. She put an ad out and selected a fellow traveler.
This new crafthaus blog is an account of two artists spending 7 days in Joshua Tree National Park:

Nosy in New Orleans: Tell Me All Your Secrets

New group blog by Amarette Gregor :

Nosy in New Orleans: Tell Me All Your Secrets

This year will be my first trip to a SNAG conference, and I plan to make the most of it. I figured when I made the plan to travel from my home base in Portland, Oregon, all the way to New Orleans, I should do everything I can to make the trip useful.

This blog will use the lens of the SNAG conference as a jumping-off point to explore the different routes people follow to pursue their careers, as well as explore my own priorities and goals.

Museum-Quality Reproductions and Membership Discounts Taken from the Artist

Posted by Harriete E Berman on May 18, 2017 at 12:27am 4 Comments

In a daily experience filled with political pretense and lies, the suggestion that a renown museum sells "museum-quality reproductions" "starting at $30" is mind blowing fake. Imagine the museum advertisement testifies that this is "custom Art on Demand reproduction from the exhibition" when in fact it is another piece of trash not even worth what you pay for it.

Anyone ever wonder about this and all the other junk in the Gift…
