Four women, seated in a room, looking at each other. "What have we gotten ourselves into? " we each were thinking. After weeks of planning and preparation, the hour had arrived, but there was no one knocking on our door. Had we miscalculated the interest of our friends and family?
But then, one person arrived. And then another. And before we knew it the house was full and we were BUSY.
I am talking about the Home Show and Holiday Sale that I participated in with 3 other artist friends. There were two photographers, a mosaicist/stained glass artist and I displayed beaded jewelry, notecards, and watercolor paintings both framed and unframed. We served snacks and drinks and invited all our local friends and acquaintances. Rita graciously offered her lovely home and it made a wonderful show space. For two afternoons last weekend we chatted with old friends, made new friends and met some interesting people. All the while our sales were exceeding our expectations. We ended the weekend on a high and started making plans to do it again next year. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the arts.
