Chihuly Exhibition

Recently returned from a steamy, but sweet vacation on the coast of Maine in Ogunquit. Visited the Ogunquit Museum of American Art where we saw two small, but lovely, exhibitions of drawings and interesting porcelain pieces. On our last day we made the trek to Boston and waited on line for hours to view the Dale Chihuly exhibition. It was definitely worth the wait and effort. His work is undoubtedly stunning! Breathtaking really. It closes on the 7th of August so you're running out of time, if you haven't yet seen it.

Art Educator's Institute

Just returned from another terrific week at NH Institute of Art for the Art Educator's Institute. This was my 6th year and another challenging week. Spent 30+ hours hand-building in the pottery studio and creating sculpture from found objects, etc. in the 3D Nature Sculpture class. It was exhausting, but exhilarating. Acquired lots of great ideas for the classroom as well as my own work. Also got to see the sand sculptures at Hampton and the Currier collection. Looking forward to getting into my studio.
