We started out well, seeing Isaiah Zagar speak about his mosaics at 8 am, manage to squeeze in a little shopping at the commercial exhibits because we can't live without a new tool, brush, etc, hoping for some free samples...I see my teapots, bowl, etc at the Amaco booth - I've helped them introduce a fab new ^5/6 glaze called Palladium. We eat lunch while watching simultaneous demonstrations by Judy Fox and Matt Metzler. Judy is an extraordinary figurative sculptor & Matt has been a studio potter for 20 years demonstrating his studio practices. We decide our plan for tonite - opening receptions at Magic Gardens, Sub Octo Gallery for Val Cushing & Ariel's National Student Show. and are lucky to find a friend with a car who wants to go with us. More things to see before we leave and then we find ourselves hanging with Isaiah Zagar at Magic Gardens (Tell-Tale Tiles & Fractured Fantasies), Sub Octo, complete with Val Cushing, glaze god, and finally the National Student show where our Ariel has won a prize for her piece! We are thrilled for her! Back to the hotel for a great party - the Texas Party sponsored by the Texas Clay Arts Association. $5 and I am a newly renewed member with a free beer! Now we are truly, positively ready to quit for the day...more tomorrow...

Artist Interviews-Where are you going? Where have you been? How did you get there?

About this blog--As a recent graduate and currently in a one-year residency the question of what’s next and how to get there is always on my mind. For this blog I will be interviewing artists who have taken varying paths and pursued different careers in or out of the arts to see what they are doing now and the steps they took to get there. Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…See More
