Booth shot at ACC

Here is a shot of my booth from the American Craft Show St. Paul. My booth was more like a gallery booth at a SOFA show than a fine craft store booth. I think I was the only white booth in the entire show. The white walls came from Art in Motion in Vermont. I was able to hang my pieces and the shelves. Josh, Paul, and Amy made sure my booth was set up when I arrived. All I needed to do was to put up the shelves, arrange the art and put up the lights. What a relief for me. Paul Jeremias from Asheville, NC, the official ACC photographer, took the booth shot.

Translations Gallery Moves to a New Space

Ordinary Alchemy, my show with Cassie Tondro, will be the first opening in a new space for Translations Gallery. The new space, up the street from the old space, is more industrial in appearance and a better gallery space. Art studios and a video production company also reside in the building. It is exciting to think of a gallery in building where art is made, not just exchanged.

The new space opening party coincides with the exhibition opening for Ordinary Alchemy on May 9th.

The new address will be effective May 1st:

Translations Gallery
855 Inca St.
Denver, CO 80204

Preparing for my first major craft show with this line of work is a major undertaking. I think I am starting to feel ready, although there are many little details left and much packing to do. I have been given a "buddy" to help me prepare for the show. Mainly I have been able to ask questions about lighting. Other friends have lead me to resources for walls and carpets. A circle of friends is so important.

Vertebrae (above) will be featured in my booth along with a new large vessel. I will have many other new smaller and medium sized works.
