First things first. My friend Mary Williams is having a solo exhibit at Westward Gallery through the end of the month. She is an amazing artist, moving from 3-D sculptures in wood to painting on wood panels. Her work is exciting and wonderful so if you are in the Denver area, I encourage you to visit her exhibit.
Mary and I go back many years to the time she put together a group of 5 artists to exhibit their work in different mediums. Our group named itself "To Expand" and consisted of Mary, Victoria Eubanks (encaustic), Ken Elliott (oil and pastel), Janice Mcdonald (collage) and me (fiber). We didn't know each other at the beginning but from our first exhibit at the Madden Museum in Denver, we became good friends.
Today, we met for lunch for the first time in 2 years (thank you Covid) and walked across the street to see Mary's new exhibit.
Thanksgiving is next week and I will be being thankful of all the artist friends I have made over the past years. And especially thanks to Mary, who opened up so many possibilities for me.
I will be thankful for all my friends who support me and my art!
