Art Around the 'Burg, the Second


Such a whirlwind has been whipping around Libertytown this week! Dan and Beth (with help from Elliot) built a roomful of Ikea furniture. Said "build-it yourself" (BIY????), superstore was alternately praised and cursed all the day long. The most exciting thing that happened yesterday was the explosion of glass from a cabinet door which had already been installed. Thank goodness no one was hurt. All was cleaned up quietly and quickly, and Dan picked up a new door along with more boxes of furniture to put together. It's a big room.

Today, as the day progressed, the gallery began to take on the look of a fancy museum gift shop. Susan wafted from place to place creating magic out of the hodge podge of fine art and craft left by various local artists, including those from Libertytown.

When she is done, the place is going to be gorgeously ready for the December shoppers. Beth, Aline and I will hang the Small Works show beginning tomorrow, and then Thursday night will be a preview opening for the Friends of Libertytown. They are in for a real treat. If you are in town, join us First Friday, Dec. 5th from 5-9. The Pottery Students will be selling their work, too. Don't miss it! See the link at right for directions.

Two color reduction print shown above is Rear Window, one of my new works which will be on display.
