On Saturday April 6, I spent the day at Meadville Middle School for the Spring into Mother's Day Craft Show which was a fundraiser for the Meadville Marching Band. At least eighty vendors packed the gym and band members and family were on hand to help us load and unload which is always a big help. I met some wonderful new people and got to hang out, make jewelry, and get some sandwiches from one of my new favorite BBQ restaurants in town so not a bad way to spend a Saturday. Speaking of Saturdays, I can't wait for July and September when I'll be setting up shop for not one, but two Waterfire events in Sharon this year. Usually there are three events: one in July, one in August, and one in September, but they've decided to only do July and September. I hope to see you there!

Once again, I entered some artwork in the Jay and Mona Kang Art Show "Celebrating the Possibilities" at the Barber National Institute. This is always a well put-together and well-attended show. It's a wonderful mix of artists from all walks of life and abilities. I stopped by after work one day for the wine and cheese reception and to check out all the amazing artwork.
This year, I entered "Hamish (Squirrel of Good Fortune." After "Murtagh" was so well received, I just had to enter this little guy as well.
I also entered my newest portrait painting "Tiger 5." You can't tell from the photo, but it's actually situated below a painting of a lion that was the work of a fellow Corry Artists' Guild member.
Speaking of the Guild, our annual show will be held Mother's Day weekend this year at the Corry Hi-Ed's Bracken Room. Unlike past years, this year, we will be accepting entries from non-guild members and local high school students. People's Choice awards will be given for each division. Friday night will have live music and refreshments and at least the first 50 mothers will receive a flower so don't miss it!

For the past week or so, I had a couple pieces at the "For the Love of Art' show in Edinboro, PA. The wonderful ladies of Gallery 104 put on this cool little art show tucked inside Lakeside Commons. There was also a pop up market where attendees could purchase some lower priced artwork. I wasn't able to make it to the reception, but I heard it was pretty awesome and very well attended by over 300 people! I also heard there are more shows to come so I better get busy!
