"Luckily, I have never operated under the illusion that I could make and sell my work and that alone could be my income. I have always known that I would need a steady "day job" to carry me financially. Perhaps once I get into wholesale…"

"Yes, I'm familiar with these feelings--usually nearing the deadline of creating something! Everything has turned out marvelously. Sometimes it's best to take the night off, walk away, and come back with fresh eyes the next day. Or to…"

"Wow, I really liked hearing I'm not alone in my same trepidation of failures that "might" happen. It just goes to show how important it is to read/ communicate in these blogs. Thank you!"

Brigitte Martin commented on Catherine Chandler's blog post The...breaking?...point
"This is a situation everyone faces at some point, and it keeps coming back in irregular intervals. As you already said, the best thing to do is to work through this despite the trepidations. My suggestion is to actually start with the task that…"

Good Morning Catherine, Thank you for the complement. We know how difficult it is to get out of the studio, turn on the computer & find artist calls.

Hi Catherine,

We jury some Crafthaus shows & want to invite you to look at our current calls:

Earthly Pleasures

Me, Myself and I

Our purpose in curating shows is to promote good artwork. We try to make the process as painless as possible.

For Off the Floor which opening August 6 we received 65 images from Crafthaus artists. A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery, it offers a permanent stage. We do love gallery shows, but here at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members.
I hope you will consider submitting.

The point where I suddenly fear going into the studio because of the failures that might happen. I know this point well. It's the point that I…

It's been a while since my last post here--I'll try to be better, I swear. In the past few years, I have finished my second BFA, this one from the Oregon College of Art and Craft. My thesis body of work, titled Refrain, is about communication.

OCAC Annual Jewelry Sale!!!

Posted on May 12, 2010 at 1:43pm 0 Comments

Every year, the Oregon College of Art and Craft's Metals Department holds a jewelry sale to raise funds for their Visiting Artist Fund.

This money goes towards bringing in a visiting artist to teach a weekend

workshop to students at the school. It is also great exposure for

students and alumni, as well as a fantastic place to find great gifts

for yourself or others at very very good…
