This wonderful Fair is located in Minneapolis with the emphasis on Local Artists.
Apologies as Iâ€™ve neglected my blog for some time now.
I thought I would just post some pictures of the various things Iâ€™ve been up to.
I am currently very busy teaching but also trying to prepare for as many as FOUR art fairs!
That is my first and most exciting news: Iâ€™ve been accepted into theÂ following fairs:
The 57th Street Art Fair JuneÂ 5 & 6
Krasl on the Bluff in St. Joseph Michigan July 10 & 11
The Kohler in Sheboygan Wisconsin July 17 & 18 and
The Powderhorn Park Art Fair in Minneapolis August 7 & 8Â !
Also I am lucky enough to be working again with the 6th graders at Murphy School to finish our Mosaic Time Line. This year we are doing: Feudal Japan, the Renaissance and the Age of Exploration.and Â for the Age of Exploration a globe with a ship sailing on it.
Whenever I get any chunk of time, I am making work for the fairs.Â Â I am excited about the images Iâ€™ve recently carved on someÂ salad plates and casseroles.(I’m so mad I cropped off the bottom of the plate when I was shooting!)
Here’s another plate- this shape was inspired by a great plate I bought from Bob Briscoe

and I want to do more of these! Â Perspective
from aboveLastly, Â I am currently in a faculty show at Lill Street. It opened May 1.
This is one of my Kelp Vases and it was Soda Fired which was just the right treatment for that surface.
Stop by and see it in person as well as all the other amazing work by my colleagues at Lill!
