Maybe you'd be interested to share your insight into last week"s symposium as well?

Thank you thank you! I'll try to check out as much as I can.  And I will definitely keep an eye out for your blog.  Hope to see you around in the near future.

Hi Emiko.  It was such a pleasure in meeting you at Snag this weekend, brief as it was.   I will be in SF next weekend and I was wondering if you had any suggestions to shows or galleries in the area that you wouldn't mind suggesting.  I'm still in limbo as I just graduated and may be moving to that area... Thank you so much!

We jury online exhibitions for Crafthaus and are inviting you to submit to our calls-

Earthly Pleasures http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-call-earthly-pleasures

Me, Myself and I will be our 7th show http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/open-callme-myself-and-i

Sitting Pretty Part 2 is how the show will look http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/sittingprettytheartsittingpretty

A show at Crafthaus has more of an audience then a gallery and offers a permanent stage to the world. We do love gallery shows, but at Crafthaus submission is easy, doesn't cost anything for members. In addition to our calls there are others you may be interested in.

We try to make the submission process as painless as possible! If you have any questions please let us know.
