What a joyful summer this was! I spent my summer making art for my September solo show and coaching gymnastics. I spent most of my time at home, in my home fused glass studio. It is my happy place. This was exceptionally true when I was able to watch the Rio Olympics and cut glass and/or fire the kiln at the same time! After the Olympics, my September show was only a couple weeks away.
Some people throw parties, I hold art shows. I really look forward to my solo shows. People I've know for years, and those I've met recently, attend and show their support. It's a great way to keep in touch with people you've known for some time, but your lives don't intersect like they once did. I'm am SO appreciative of my supporters. I look forward to my solo shows for various reasons.
A solo show is a great way to share with the world, what you are creating in this stage of your life. People can see a body of work that intersects and reveals much about the artist. Often, I have work in group shows and it is a shared venue with other artists. Solo shows demonstrate my growth as an artist. A collection of work has strength in numbers.
