Journey of an Artist July 23 – 9:15 a.m. Students Talk about their Artwork

July 22, 2017

Exhibition – Level 4 Studies in Experimental Stitch and Multimedia (Turquoise)

We have been cleaning, hanging and celebrating with a group of 5 students who have been preparing this past week for a major exhibition this weekend. July 22 and 23.  Sunday morning, come join us at 9:15 a.m. as each student will be talking about her artwork.  Do not miss this wonderful experience to hear about the Journey of an Artist. If you miss the talk come and see the show from 11:00 to 4:00 p.m. I will be placing blogs up about each student.  Gail Harker

Before an exhibition a lot of work goes on behind the scenes.  Jane Clark faithfully cares for planters around the drive. Thank you Jane

Linda Ingham worked with me for 21/2 days before the exhibit.  We placed 30 tables in a closet so the rooms could be used for showing artwork.  Here she is touching up wall boards with paint to prepare for artwork. Thanks Linda.

Don has an additional task of cooking for all of us while helpers and teachers stay off and on over a week period. So many meals over so many years.

    Awesome exhibit !! The four of us spent 2 hours looking, admiring and asking questions and could have stayed longer if we hadn’t been so hungry ;-)) Wish the studio was closer to our home base of Lacey, WA as we all would love to take the classes and see more shows.

    Fantastic body of work by so many talented artists. I wouldn’t have missed it. Congrats to all of the students in finishing up your years of study with Gail.

    Wish I could have seen it, all that hard work pays off for a wonderful exhibit, I’m sure.
