Artisphere is coming soon! www.artisphere.us/

"One-Stop Open Studios 2015" is a special exhibition at the Metropolitan Arts Council.  The exhibit runs from April 29 through June 17, 2015 and will be open to the public during Artisphere weekend hours.  For details contact MAC http://www.greenvillearts.com/

My small ceramic sculpture, "Acorn and Cap" will be shown in "One-Stop Open Studios 2015". This is always a wonderful show to visit if you want to see a large number of small but excellent works of art by Greenville's best artists. If you are just starting an art collection, this is a great place to begin!

Five of our "rescue fish" survived the winter!

Our 5 "rescue fish" are swimming in our rusty wheelbarrow waiting to return to a clean pond! I call them our "rescue fish" because I purchased them as tiny feeder fish some 5 or 6 years ago. We started with 15 feeder fish for $2.50 at PetsMart.  Rosie, our parti poodle, caught 3 to play with, a copperhead bit one and others seemed to mysteriously disappear, probably a raccoon smart enough to reach under the net.  These gorgeous survivors are now close to a foot in length and happy to return to a clean pond!

A whirlwind trip to Lake City, SC to install "10 Half-Pods" for ArtFields 2015

The venue where my work is being shown is 104 East Main Street, Lake City, SC.

Sculpture is everywhere in the historic and charming town of Lake City.

Half-Pods unpacked and ready for installation.

One Half-Pod up and nine to go....

30 minutes later we are packed and ready to go!

The job is done and we are about to head home.  Thanks Roger, your expertise made the installation "a piece of cake".  Having Jaz and Rosie along offered a party atmosphere and moral support.  After all, they are parti poodles and see this as their job in our family.

The drive home through fields of brilliant green winter hay and saffron yellow canola plants was breathtaking!  There was also a purple haze that topped some of the brilliant yellow canola fields. The complementary nature of these two colors together still lives on as a vivid memory or our trip to Lake City.

Our very best wishes to Lake City and the ArtFields Committee for their hard work launching ArtFields 2015!  May it be the best event yet!
