We all are living in challenging times. I hope you are safe and healthy and following the recommendations of the smartest people in charge.
I’ve often heard or read that artists should not hold up in their studios but instead be out there sharing, showing, mingling. I have never been very good at the latter. I see now that we are under quarantine, this will be easier for me than many others because I have had the privilege of hiding out in my studio!
Some good news… My Reclinaconda piece that has been on exhibit at Visions Art Museum sold!
Also, because Visions Art Museum will be closed during the pandemic, they will be having online activities for their members. I’m happy to say I’ll be apart of designing the online activities. Sunday the first activity will begin, here is a sneak peek of one of my challenge project samples.
It has been interesting thinking up challenges/activities because it’s not like teaching; when you can just say “You will need these supplies and materials” and know participants can usually just run out to get them. These are short run activities and there wouldn’t be time to order and wait for delivery (maybe if they can afford to pay for speedy delivery). I have to think what someone may have on hand and not all members are quilters or artists.
It does help me feel that, in a small way, I’m helping some people get through. The challenge runs for one week, I’ll share more after this first one ends.
Thanks for stopping by and please take care.
