As I have my lunch today I try to catch up on my blog. One reason I fell behind was due to computer issues. The other is working on several projects with deadlines that all fell within these last few weeks.
Farmers Market – The Farmers Market has been keeping me busy with despite the 100 degree days that we have had to work in. I have been selling a lot of wishing stars, yard art signs, bird baths and bells. My Jewelry and Functional art would be a close second. To keep up with the demand my kiln has been running 24 seven.
McKinney Living – In July’s issue I had several photo’s published in the following articles:
McKinney Alfresco – A Guide to Outdoor Dining photo’s included Patina Green, Sauce and Café Malaga.
Summertime Smoothies’ – All photos’. This was a fun project as my Husband made the Smoothies’ and I photographed them. Then wedrank them all – very delicious. There was not one that Idid not enjoy!
Frank and Jesse James – The lead in photo of the house was Mine. I must admit this was not an easy house to photograph due to the surrounding. I managed to get the perfect angle!
Juried Art Shows – There where two very important juried Shows I wanted to enter.
Laura Moore Fine Art Gallery “The Edge”. The deadline for rntering this show was June 30th. All art pieces where to be created specifically for this show with a theme of the Edge reflected in them. This project made me very edgy sometimes. I did manage to come up with five concepts:
1- Red – Photograph taken in “Deep Ellum” which is considered an edgy neighborhood of Dallas. It was a close up of red paint peeling off of an old truck.
2- Old & New – Photograph taken on Martha’s Vineyard on the edge of Vine Haven Harbor of an old boat house door with a new lock. The grain was very edgy.
3- Glass 2 Glass – Was developed due to a pretty edgy thought of Me and the famous glass artist Chilhuly! While in Boston I visited the Chilhuly Exhibit and photographed two of his bowls. Then edged one of the glass bowls with glass that I hand cut and fused and adhered to the photography print!
4- Clearly the…… - is a simple piece of cleared fused glass with a Edge displayed on a gallery stand.
5- Tired Glass – Here my creativity too me to the edge – using my Miata I ran over 5M aluminum, applied White Linen Dry Enamel and then fused the Aluminum between two pieces of clear glass creating a metal inclusion. Very cool –
All of the above pieces where accepted! For more information on the show go to www.lauramooreart.com.
The other Juried Art Show I entered is the “29th Annual Art in the Metroplex Visual Arts Competition”. This show will be held in September and I will not know if I made it in until mid August.
Art and Music Guild – Membership drive in full swing. Working with students from UTD who will develop our marketing stogies and a lead in the planning of our 1st Art and Music Venue that has been rescheduled for late October of this year. Also working on being a participant in the Dallas “12 Hour’s of Giving”.
MAST – McKinney Art Studio Tour. Working as publicist for this event which will take place mid November of this year.
Other special projects included photographing food for a local restaurant to be used in their marketing and new menus! I also was part of a movie being produced by the Episcopal Archdiocese of Dallas to encourage other churches nationwide to get involved in adopting a local school and mentoring.
So you can see why I have not written in my blog for a while. Now I must complete getting ready for tomorrows Farmers Market.
Looking forward to meeting new people tomorrow and greeting the familiar ones.
