and on Friday, April 15 at 8 a.m., I began here, with my bit of floor space, delineated by masking tape, my table and chair. I moved in my display stand, my sack of clip-lights, my box and bags, and began to set up.
I came home fairly satisfied, with assurances from other artists that the first year is a 'getting to know you' year, and that next year would be better re: sales. It was a very full and generally exhausting weekend, but kernels of ideas are already beginning to brew for new work.
And...well, the good thing is that I plan to enter two of the unsold pieces into "Connections Across the West", the latest Call to Entry from SAQA Western Canada. The photos are ready to go; I just have to write up what the submission requires and send it off.
As for my grant application, no news yet. I keep hoping that'll mean good news in the end. Stay tuned!
