So I will be at the annual the More The Merrier at Art Ark with my little red tool box. With everyone's awesome feedback I've been playing around with some new ideas as to how to improve comfort, durability as well as bringing in a whole slue of new designs.
If you have not marked your calendars, pencil the exhibition now. There are two exhibition dates.
Opening Reception: Friday, November 4, 2016, 6pm-9pm
Closing Reception: Friday, December 2, 2016, 6pm-9pm
As always there will not only be great art but live music and refreshments. I cannot wait to see everyone there.

Although its a challenge, at times it is necessary to marathon some art. Two weekends ago stars aligned and I had a three day marathon of amazing art events.
The first stop on my art filled weekend is the closing reception for Border Cantos - Richard Misrach and Guillermo Galindo at the San Jose Museum of Art. I was fortunate enough to see Guillermo perform earlier this summer, in a far more intimate setting I might add, because the performance for the closing of the show was well attended. Standing room only!
Friday night my girl friends and I found ourselves in the Saratoga Mountains at the Montalvo Arts Center for their #5hourscuplturepopup. It was a night of food trucks, live music, art performances and installation art through out the grounds.
I cannot say it enough, but when ever I come out for one of their events, I have a blast. A night filled with interactive art, performance from spoken word to dance, musical performances all night and amazing food and drinks.
I am still swaying my hips to some of the amazing musical performances from that night. And in particular the closers for the evening, Zakiya Harris and Elephantine.
