I’ll be attending a marketing workshop both Saturday and Sunday in Corvallis. Initially I signed up for one of the “prime spots” to be evaluated by Marty Rudolph. Heather emailed me about needing to bring in 3 works in the same media for the event. Yikes! That froze me! First, the thought of wrangeling the leaf coat back there for the weekend was not enjoyable. The other piece that could fit the textile category was the postcard quilt, not quite as painful to transport but there is no where to hang it (photography show still going). What would I do for a third textile? I don’t have any! Granted, a miniature woven coat of paper could be produced over the next two days but would it really be something I would feel good about showing? Hard to say. It’s still experimental. Maybe I’ll give it a go anyway just for the heck of it. Anyway, I opted to back out and allow another artist w/ a larger body of work take my place. I’ll still be there to watch and take notes. Quite a few of my art friends are in the top 8. Should be fun.
