SO…IT WAS HOT…but a lot of fun at the 52nd annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts.  The place was hopping, lots of great artists, food, music and fun.  This was my first opportunity to participate in this long running show and it turned out to be one of my most successful ones, even with the heat.  DID I MENTION IT WAS HOT??

I saw many old friends and met some new ones.  Great positive comments about my pieces and many smiles about my CARPET DIEM work.  I will have the last of those pieces at the Gresham Arts Festival 2015 Saturday, July 18, 2015  9:00 AM – 5:00 PM


Summer is here and the fun has just started!

Today is beautiful.  I have been taking a little break from glass (not breaking glass!) and doing some much needed yard work.  On a day like today, I should call it yard play.

I want to give you all an update on mu upcoming summer shows:

52nd Annual Lake Oswego Art in the Park, June 26, 27 and 28 in the George Rodgers Park.  This is a very popular show for the whole family.  I am excited as this will be my first year participating.

Gresham Arts Festival July 18, 2015. This will be my 4th year participating in the fun show.  The Farmers Market will be close by, there will be musicians playing all day and GREAT art.

Sunriver Art Faire August 7-9.  This will be my 3rd year at this show.  Who doesn’t like Sunriver?  Sounds like the construction in downtown is completed so come for the weekend!

15th Annual Silverton Fine Arts Festival August 15-16.  I really enjoyed this festival last year.  It is located in beautiful Coolidge-McClaine Park, surrounded by towering oak and fir trees.

I also have my work at Three Rivers Gallery & Gifts in The Singer Hill Cafe in Oregon City.  I will have pieces there through the end of June.

I look forward to seeing you this summer and thank you for continuing to follow my posts

Adding Sunriver Art Faire August 7, 8 and 9, 2015.  I have had fun at this show in the past and expect the same this year.  If you are in the area then, please stop by.

Just dropped of my art at Three Rivers Gallery and Gifts 

Located at 613 7th Street, Oregon City, Oregon 97045, inside Singer Hill Cafe  Hours: Tuesday through Sunday – 9-4 (closed Monday).  Just for fun, I made some pieces to celebrate PDX.  Two are at the gallery.  Once they are gone, I am not creating any more.


I will be dropping off other pieces tomorrow 510 Museum and ARTSpace, 510 1st St, Lake Oswego, OR 97034.



I have been creating some new glass pieces, taking breaks to tend the yard and home front.  There is always something to do when the yard is big and the house is old.  I am not complaining as I like being out doors and I like the house, warts and all.

I will have some of my work in two different galleries:

510 Museum & ARTspace, 510 1st St, Lake Oswego.  The show is entitled Mothers & Makers an exhibition celebrating female creativity and leadership in our community”.  Gallery hours are Tues-Fri 11AM-4PM.  The show runs May 1-22nd.  Opening reception will be Friday May 1st 5-7PM, all are welcome.

Three Rivers Gallery and Gifts, 613 SE 7th St, Oregon City inside Singer Hill Cafe. Gallery hours Tues-Sun 9AM-4PM.  The gallery rotates in new artists every two moths so my work will be there through the end of June.

I have limited my festival participation this year.  I am still waiting to hear from a few shows,but so far I will be in:

The Lake Oswego Art in the Park, June 26-28.  This show has been going on for many years and is an annual tradition for many.

Gresham Arts Festival, July 18. I really enjoy this one day event.  A real festival atmosphere, with music, food, great art and the farmer’s market as well.

I will update as more information becomes available!

The summer shows are starting!

Spring is here! I have been planting and fertilizing and sneezing!  I live in the Pacific NW, one of the most beautiful places in the world.  It also has a very high pollen count.  I am so blessed  to live here and antihistamines are so helpful.
