Once again, it seems a long time since I've written. My show, The Art of Tea II, at AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH, has finished. After all the work that went into putting it together, it feels good now to be back in my studio, working on some new pieces.
I reflect back on the highlights of that venture. It was very satisfying to work with AVA staff to hang the exhibition. The pieces chosen very well fit in that lovely venue and I was pleased with how it showcased a variety of work created over the past three years. I also found that giving a gallery talk was an excellent experience. With Carol's help I learned to use Keynote to prepare a slide show that highlighted the influences in my work, my process of learning to use tea stained paper, and what I have learned. It was very gratifying to experience the appreciation of many who viewed the show.
