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...

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
