I am really excited about going to this conference! Many interesting shows, speakers, an awesome PDS program (if I may say so myself,) and much more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jillian Moore, who blogged the Houston conference will again do the honors for us in Seattle. Look out for her funny commentaries and insights on the happenings. She will be busy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Katja Toporski  who bloged the Gray Area Symposium in Mexico City (2010) for crafthaus, will cover this conference as well. Part of her focus will be on student issues. If you are a current student attending the conference, please get in touch with Katja asap to talk about your expectations and goals.

 

 

 

 

 

Fasten your seat belts. This is going to be interesting.

Seattle Trunk Show Huge Success

Trunk ShowThe inaugural Trunk Show in Seattle succeeded beyond our wildest expectations. The 56 participating artists rang up $30,598 in sales in just two hours. People were lined up before the doors even opened, and then lined up at the cashier with purchases in hand.  

The Trunk Show Committee is comprised of Andy Cooperman,Trunk ShowDon Friedlich, Brigitte Martin, Michelle Pajak-Reynolds, Corliss Rose and John Rose. Kudos to them for creating this event from scratch. Watch for the second annual Trunk Show next year in Phoenix, with many more cashiers.

I'd be really interested to hear feedback from the Educator's Dialogue. Could someone please comment on the topics that were discussed. I couldn't attend.
Thank you !

I hope you all have a great time at the SNAG conference! Thank you to those who will be writing and streaming the show for us to who cant go.

If you get a chance, stop by Traver Gallery to see "Dual" curated by Catherine Grisez. Some of my pieces were fortunate to make it! Happy conference...

Are you ready for the Photography in Flux discussion during the Professional Development Seminar?

Are digital images your "cup of tea" or alphabet soup?Study up with this quick tutorial on ASK Harriete.

Yes, there will be name tags given out at the registration desk automatically. Feel free to "out" yourself as a crafthauser by copying the logo and putting it onto your name tag. There are plenty of us at the conference, and you are right, it will definitely help.

 

Also, please consider coming to the SMALLER CONFERENCE EXPERIENCE that Harriete and I are organizing on the first day, Thursday. That is an ice-breaker like no other !!

Life has many layers - like lasagna.

I've been absent from these pages for the summer while I started a new book and concentrated on getting some flute projects out the door. This month I've actually (gulp) taken a spare bag or two of time to myself and done sweet fork all. What a treat that was. It's been at least a century since I could live a couple of weeks without feeling compelled to do anything.Well, not nothing... (How can any self respecting obsessive compulsive polymath really do nothing ?) That would be unconscionable.…See More
