The reception for the Soulbuds Show was a great event.  There was a good turnout, good music and good food provided by the artists in the Soulbuds show.  The show is in the Visual Arts Center at Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon and runs through May 22nd, 2009.  The Visual Arts Center is a wonderful venue for the show.  The lighting is good and the pieces are displayed well. 

An added plus to the event was the celebration of Stephen Mickey’s birthday.  It was nice to celebrate the man who img_0003_300pixprovided the kiln and creative environment from which so many of the pots in the show emanated.img_0004_300pix1

This year’s Chocolate Fantasy and Art Auction will be held February 28th, 2009, from 6:00-10:00pm in The Club Level at Reser Stadium. Chocolate Fantasy will be hosted by OPB Oregon Art Beat’s, K.C. Cowan. Chocolate Fantasy cid_image001_png01c98e00is a fund-raiser for The Arts Center, in Corvallis, Oregon and features chocolate desserts for tasting, an art auction, food, bar and music. Over 160 artists, businesses and community supporters of the arts have donated original works and more for this years auction. The art includes ceramics, photography, painting, woodworking, printmaking, fiber arts, jewelry and glass. I have been a member of the procurement committee responsible for procuring quality pottery and clay sculpture pieces to auction for several years now and I think this year’s extravaganza will be one of the best! I hope to see you there!

I will be participating in two anagama firings during March and April, Jay Widmer’s Digger Mountain Anagama and Stephen Mickey’s Soulgama.  I should have many new and beautiful pots for the spring shows.
