My opening at The Depot Gallery in Mill Valley last Tuesday was great fun! Lots of people came--the Depot put out a beautiful spread of appetizers and wine & everyone had a great time! I got to meet several supporters who I have communicated with via email, but hadn't met in person yet. Margery Cantor, who lives in Vermont and who is the Design and Production Manager for Inquiring Mind, a semiannual journal of the Vipassanna Community. I have working with her for several years now, submitting artwork for the journal. They will be using one of my images in their upcoming Spring issue, which should be out sometime in April. I also got to meet Louise Wilson, who has been a fan of my work for a long time. She is a writer, and she specifically works with her dreams--and she also is hoping to publish some of her writing and use one of my images. So lots of exciting developments.
Another exciting development is that I will be participating in Alyson Stanfield's Blog Tour for her just released book "I'd Rather Be in the Studio! The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion". I discovered Alyson last summer and signed up for her free Art Marketing Action newsletter. She is responsible for getting me started in Blogland. (Thank you, Alyson!) Then I signed up for her Promote Your Art class last fall. It was an intensive, interactive class conducted on a blog (Who knew?)--with tons of information to assimilate and much fun, as well!
So Alyson will be making a Guest Appearance on my blog on April 4. How exciting! So mark that on your calendar & stop by to check out Alyson's visit. More info to come...
