1 September opens the First Annual Squam Art Show - A Vision of Squam - and can I tell you how thrilling it is to see this event almost at it's opening day? Pretty darn thrilled in so many more ways than I can even begin to say . . .
I received the above postcard by e-mail from Susan at artstream the other day, and had a little moment, just me and my computer screen, a happy thrilled, excited feeling in my tummy, and a little bit of moisture in the eyes.
And so, an invitation to one and all: if you are near the Seacoast area of New Hampshire (Rochester specifically), or anywhere in the vicinity of New England between the 1st and 30th of September, make a visit to see some of the work that came from artists, students and teachers that attended the Squam Art Workshops in 2008. The opening celebration for the show is Friday, 11 September.
- Thank you to all the artists who submitted work for this show - I know for some it was the first experience down this path of showing work in a gallery, and there were nerves and worries, but you all stepped up, and I am so proud of all of you!
- To Elizabeth, gorgeous mistress of the muse, for all the inspiration she provides
- And to Susan and Mary Jo at artstream for being so very willing and excited to host this show.
A dream come true . . . and a postcard to remember it by . . . doesn't get much better than that in my world!
