I'll have to be sure to try to get to the print shop on Thursday! :0) I loved to see her work of the violin at the link you sent. Violins tend to grab my interest more often than not, and the design on the front was pretty cool. :0)

Looking forward to meeting Karin and Ellie! Very interested in hearing about the Gallery World.

Hey! There is a secret link to the gallery under the smiling picture of Karin.

This weeks contest will be a fun game: go to the Grace Chosy site and click on the list of artists. Find anyone you know?

Hey everyone!

I left a note in the shop, but just another reminder (i'll probably post one tomorrow too)-if you have any art you'd like to contribute for the sale at the women's history carnival on the 25th, price it and bring it to the shop on monday or tuesday. You'll get 10% of the proceeds, I believe, and the rest goes to the Self-Sufficiency program. Any medium works, and it doesn't have to be matted or framed. Thanks1

I learned a lot from Karen. It was also great to see the prints she brought with her too.

Sarah said...

I really enjoyed Karen's visit. I benefitted from her talking about her process and techniques. Printmaking is crazy, but I like the unlimited possibilities and styles.....
