SouthWorks 2010 and More

Hello there!
Come on in and just sit a spell. It's been a while. But better late than never... Anyway, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words so do let these photos do the talking for me. (Fat chance, I know...)

Last week, I finally made it to SouthWorks, an annual artfest in nearby Watkinsville held every spring -- and would you believe it, it's the first time I've been? I always forget or I'm away or I'm working. Not this time, though.

T enters the SouthWorks 2010 Juried Art Exhibition in the OCAF Cultural Centers Building. OCAF sponsors this thriving art community and why don't we go just go from the ridiculous to the sublime? I think most of you know that's what I usually do anyway.

Now look, there is NO WAY I can show it all. So I took pix of my and T's (mostly MY) favourites. If you want to see the whole she-bang, you need to come visit us next May. I think that's only fair.

The Three Graces by Barbara Balzer.

If I had the bucks, this sculpture and the next one would have come home with me. Honest. My measly photos cannot do them justice. I took more than one angle of each, and you will understand why in a second.

Next is APPRENTICE by Barbara Balzer. 24 inches tall.

(T finally insisted I get away from this and give other people a chance to look it over.)
The next two are quilts. I can only remember the first one's title.

THE LOVERS. This one is gorgeous -- multidimensional and very tactile. And look at her pocketbook! incredible!

T and I thought of our friend Jeanne who made each of us a sweet half quilt before she left for her new life in London two years ago.

Fun, huh? There's more where this all came from but not today, Kids.

Say, don't forget to register for Vanessa's Mad Tea Party! It's not too late to join in!
I am so there on June 26th. Hope to see you too.
And, I am working on another doll... and speaking of dolls, look at THIS fun post. Congrats to Sarah! So thrilled to see her work up and at 'em.
Take care.
