Last Thursday I went with three fiber artist friends on a gallery hop in Houston. We viewed paintings, lots of ceramics, jewelry, and some pieces that weren't really identifiable. Met several artists who were hanging out at the galleries. I saw a couple of things that would be fun to display, but I'm trying to come up with a strategy for my art collection at home, so was not really in the market to buy anything major right now. I've reached the point where I either need to get rid of some things, or begin to rotate the art on display--and that sounds like real work. Plus, I'm increasingly aware that I have to make plans for all this stuff for the future. Oddly enough, not everyone likes what I enjoy! (Whatever is the matter with them?) In any case, aside from a delicious lunch, my only purchase was some yarn at the wonderful, dangerous shop "Twisted Yarns" in Spring, TX.
For those interested in a finished view of "Surveyors Being Eaten by Bears" and "Gecko Apotheosis," check out the New Works Gallery.
