The shows for this season, ready set….

After a very cold and wet winter, it seems we have hopped right into summer locally.  The beauty of the outdoors is an inspiration as well as a challenge for my art.  There are always many things to do in the garden and I have to remember the art shows are coming up as well as the flowers!

New to a great gallery in McMinnville

I really enjoyed The Sip in McMinnville (see my last post) and was pleased to meet Nancy Morrow, the co-owner ( with her husband Dan Morrow) of The Gallery at Ten Oaks 801 SW Baker St, McMinnville, OR.  She invited me to paticipate as an artist at their gallery.  I am pleased to say I just delivered 10 pieces to their gallery today!  If you get a chance, go visit this beautiful place.

My next show

In my haste posting yesterday, I forgot to include a picture AND forgot to tell you about my first show of the season:

SIP! McMinnville Wine & Food Classic, Evergreen Space Museum

500 NE Captain Michael King Smith Way, McMinnville, OR 97128

Friday, March 10th — 3pm to 9pm

Saturday, March 11th — 12pm to 9pm

Sunday, March 12th — 12pm to 5pmEgyptian and French (pair)

Spring is around the corner (don’t know which corner yet)

Rainy days are great for artistic inspiration

I took a little down time in my glass making but am getting excited and recharged now.  I had some of my pieces photographed by an awesome local photographer Dan Kvitka.  Google his name and you will be in for a treat.  I realized I needed a pro to take pictures for the juried art shows I want to enter ( iPhones just don’t do it).

I keep trying to stretch myself creatively.  With glass that sometimes means full trash cans.  But without failures, how do I grow?  I have to be happy with what I do.

So, I will let you know when I find out in what shows I will take part.  For now, I will continue to create, enjoy and stretch!  Peace, Carol Bresky  carolbresky@gmail.com
