One of the most inconvenient parts of melding all of my present lives together is the amount of dates that it is absolutely crucial that I remember, nevermind, not over-book. I have witnessed first-hand another gallery director/owner schedule two shows of her work to hang simultaneously. The second venue scrambled, and she helped them fill the space with another artist a few days later. Not something I want to do.
But, I admit that I was guilty of a similar faux pas yesterday. The Stone Church and I have agreed that the March show would be the last to run for two months. I scheduled another one for April yesterday, and one that I think will be really important for all involved. When I realized that this morning, I had to act very quickly, admit my mistake, reset the schedule. It worked, but I did have a “white knuckle” moment. So, the next show will continue to be the last before we switch to the month-to-month schedule. Malynda Forcier will hang in May. I have an illustrators’ show in the works for June.
But, back to the working woman who is an artist and curator, on the side-I bought a great big, industrial desk calendar that now sits under my laptop. And, to add amusement to the narrative, said working woman/artist/curator uses her coffee table as her desk. But, hey, I can decorate with the best, but I tend to go for function first-and my easel is directly to the left of the couch. I also visited Staples for a few other newly needed items. I am finally filing business cards. I have a “big girl” business card carrier instead of a plastic bag now, too. Ooo, how professional.
The most important thing that I accomplished today though was joining the Kittery Art Association. An easy feat, and a mere $35. But, it doubles my art’s seacoast exposure, and gives me access to another pool of artists. And, what a beautiful space!
I am hoping to check into the Gatehouse gallery to see if she has new images posted yet, and if she does, I will share in tomorrow’s “daily”.
