I won't be in Toronto. My father passed away and I'm going to his memorial...I'm leaving soon and in the middle of grading before I go. but off the top of my head for exhaust fans, I purchased one from Grainger many years ago and talked with an engineer that was very helpful. Tell them what you are doing and they will suggest something. Getting a bigger one than you need is better then one that is too small, and the Less bends in your duct work the better, and if you have to have a bend, two 45 degree angles is better then one 90. Strait up to the roof is the best. Contact me again if you need to. I'll have more time in the next few weeks. -deb
Hi Anne, I just enjoyed looking through your photos...your pigeon holed series strikes me right now, as I'm trying to break from just that thing. Your creative connections framing your pieces in are inspirational. Best wishes!
Smithsonian went well! Not the best show I'd ever done, as many people told me it would be, but still in my top 5. I was actually disappointed that I didn't do better! :o) But my bluebird brooch got used in a lot of publicity: the show flyer, in newspaper ads, etc.
Jazz Fest was amazing for me! Thankfully it was because it's been getting me through the past 3 months financially. I had 2 local shows after that which really sucked. I did S. University in Ann Arbor and that was absolutely horrible. I'll never do a show in Ann Arbor again. I didn't even make my booth fee. >:o(
I'll be doing another local show next month (no shows for me in August, either,) then going to Cottonwood in TX in Oct. And FL later that month. Doing a lot more gallery consignment. That's been going well for me, the few consignment accounts that I have. Picked up a couple more recently.
Let me know when will be in St Louis and yes I know Peg. We could all meet at Craft Alliance,I think the metals exhibit curated by Paulette Myer from SIUE will still be up. Depending on when you are in we will give you a studio tour at Craft Alliance (both locations). Peg teaches classes there.

I keep trying to write this blog and get it posted but I seem to run into self inflicted road blocks. I was hoping to have something running by Wednesday. First, I have 2 computers and Ive done bits and pieces on them both. Second, I cant seem to find a wifi hook up when I need it or when I have the draft I want to post. On top of that, there's been very little time away from the conference or visiting family for me to go onkine. Finally, when I was going to post this afternoon, the battery…See More
