Thanks to everyone who came by last weekend for Open Studios. Fountain Street was hoppin’ with visitors, and it was great to see old friends and meet lots of new folks. My new work got alot of good feedback and my installation was met with alot of smiles. I’m still collecting old video tapes if you have some you’d like to get rid of!
The next session of my workshop starts Thursday, April 28, 9:30am-12:30.
