Everyone is doing all of these lovely and inspiring posts about what 2010 meant for them and what their plans are for 2011. It's all great to read, and I wish I could post one of those kinds of things here, but the truth is this: I am quietly freaking out over here, because I can't find my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project! My family and I have been doing quite a bit of travel over the holidays, and I have been taking the sketchbook wherever I go so that I can work on the last few pages I needed to fill before I send it off. So we arrived home a few days ago, in between trips to do laundry, unpack and then repack. As I was repacking, I started looking for the sketchbook and I can't find it. I can't tell you the feeling in my stomach. Kinda of slimy, kinda upset, and kinda tense. I have put SO many hours in that thing and now it is due soon!
I'm still out of town right now, sans sketchbook, and I am headed home tomorrow. I am planning on turning that house upside down til I find that book. Please send me help and mental vibes in finding that thing!!!
But before I head home tomorrow, I will be dropping off my sculptures for the Cabarrus County Arts Council exhibit. I am looking forward to seeing the gallery space and meeting the coordinator who contacted me originally. I did manage to get some professional photos taken of the new work, so once I get a chance to process those photos, I will post a few here. I also got my bronze photographed as well, so it will be super nice to finally have those and be able to put them on my website/blog, etc.
Here is a description of the upcoming exhibit, straight from their website:
1/18: Word Processing Opens
10 am - 4 pm, Monday through Friday
The Galleries, 65 Union Street South, Concord NC
The Cabarrus Arts Council welcomes you to our first exhibition of 2011, Word Processing. Artists use text, letters and words as texture and design to deliver their points of view. Ceramics, paintings and installations are featured in this exhibition. Free and open to the public, as always.
I hope you all are having a good year so far. I think it is going to be great (once I find my sketchbook, anyway)!
