New Arrivals & Merry Christmas!

Hello Everyone -
I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. This year's holiday will be especially poignant, as we welcomed Abigail Eileen into the world last Thursday, 12/18. Our own little Christmas miracle!
I don't know if its the economic downturn or something a little more spiritual, but I have been blessed to see and experience more genuine Christmas tidings and less commercialism than in recent memory. It just adds to the blessing of having our daughter arrive exactly one week before Christmas. Maybe I'm being overly sentimental (or still riding on hormones) but this holiday season gives me fresh hope for a better world in 2009. Merry Christmas to everyone, and thanks for your friendship - I remain thankful.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Panera Bread Holiday Meeting Update

The holiday meeting will be tomorrow at Panera Florence... for artists who either missed the showcase and would like to learn more, or those who would like to talk about it - this should be a great meeting to learn more about it and learn more about the BCVAA in a relaxed atmosphere!

More Info - Art Showcase

Hi All,

Quick update about this weekend - found this link to more info about the art showcase this weekend at the main library in Burlington.

I won't be able to personally attend - I'm on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy - but I will be displaying Into the Light and Windmills. The community art organization I work with, BCVAA, is co-sponsoring and providing light refreshments. This is my favorite show of the year - please try to stop by if you can!

Also, coming up in the next year I will be concentrating on adding more community arts information and relevant info for other artists... we don't really have a good database of shows currently and I've noticed a lot of people get word of CTA's (calls to artists) only through conversation. I'd like to develop a database of shows and resources I run into that seem like good opportunities and information.

There will be a real push for a renaissance of sorts in Boone County next year - I call it a renaissance but actually I don't know that we have ever had an extremely active art community here. There is the distinct possibility of a community chalk art festival in May or so, to be held in Burlington. I don't have a lot of information on it yet but will update everyone when I do...

Hope everyone is doing well - Happy Holidays and I hope to be posting new work soon -
