My mom asked me to post exactly which of my paintings are in which shows in March, since she can’t be here to see them. And since yesterday was her birthday, I better do what she says (Happy Bday Mom!). So here it is, all the event info for March all in one place:
Climb is on view in the Grain Belt Bottling House as a part of the Women’s Art Registry of Minnesota (WARM) member show Temporality, showing through March 31st. The building is open Mon-Fri 8am-6pm, and is located at 79 13th Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN
Thirst, Seedlings 2 and Incubators will all be showing in the SMARTS Arts of the Community II exhibit at Intermedia Arts March 11th-30th with an opening reception March 18th from 7-10pm. Intermedia is open Mon-Fri 10am-6pm and Sat 12-5pm.
We had a great turnout on Friday night for the WARM members show Temporality. Click here to see photos! I had a great time meeting lots of artists whose names I knew from emails and statements but hadn’t met in person yet. It’s great to see the excitement & potential of the organization growing. I have been really impressed with the excellent quality of our members’ work. We are, for the most part, a very professional and yet very unpretentious group. In short, we take our art seriously, but don’t take ourselves too seriously.
Now I’m getting ready for the SMARTS show at Intermedia. Framing in progress:
Unfortunately I made a dumb move yesterday and broke the glass in one of my frames. The paint on the frame was kind of banged up anyway so I don’t feel too bad about having to replace it (especially since my piece in the WARM show was bought by fellow artist Claudia Poser! She and her hubby are so adorable, and I really love her artwork, so it makes my heart smile that she’s buying my painting). So I have two out of three done. Plus I was reminded why it’s important to know what you really need BEFORE you get the framing supplies. I ended up with some foam core backing that’s way too thick for the frames. Oops. Framing is such a pain, but it’s so exciting to see them all done. They are like my little babies, and now they are all dressed up and ready to catch the bus to go off to kindergARTen! Aww.
