destination gathering recap

March 31, 2007

we want to thank all those who were able to attend this last gathering.  despite the ku loss, we had a great turnout.  we are even more convinced how important it is to connect with and encourage each other in our creative endeavors.  thank you for a wonderful discussion.  a great big thank you to debra for all of her hard work, amazing food and drink,  and the use of her beautiful (and amazingly artful) house.  she is going to have to watch that i don’t run off with her dishinger painting.  the post card images were amazing, and we appreciate all who either brought or mailed cards.  we will post images of the postcards today or tomorrow.  we are looking at varying venues for these cards, and hope to have a traveling exhibit of the work.

destination gathering adendum

March 23, 2007

Dear Destination Gathering Attendees,

We have received several postcards from remote participants in the mail and are excited to see you all with yours tomorrow evening!  As some of you know, the KU game is scheduled for 6:04 p.m. as well.  Deb, the hostess, has offered to have game viewing available in her lower studio, which has a comfy sofa and chairs, for those of you who want to watch for awhile or check scores in the background.  Feel free to come early to watch as we will have the game available from the beginning.   For those of you who are concerned about KU’s destination in this elite 8 tournament, this may be a relief.  However, if participants come painted red and blue, they may be turned away at the door.   We look forward to another great artist gathering!

destination gathering-

balm is ready for our next event! this time the theme is a destination gathering. we are looking for creative post cards based on a destination theme to be produced to show at the gathering. the postcards can be mailed or brought with you to the event. we would love if you sent postcards even if you can’t make the gathering. i know we have a writer sending one from france! standard postcard parameters are 4″ x 6″ typically. any medium is encouraged. this project will be especially challenging to those who are not visual artists. poetry, photos, sheet music, a cd, fabric, ect. think outside the box. we would also request that you bring hors d’oeuvres in addition to the postcard art as admission. we hate to limit this event, but it seems we may as we have so many people interested in attending. please let us know as soon as you can if you are coming as we are going to send out actual postcards invitations, and don’t want to send them if you unable to attend, or you are not able to send a postcard. unfortunately space is limited. we look forward to another gathering for continued connections, creative mingling & more artsy profusions.
