I just got back from the opening of my exhibition in Kansas City. It was a bit touch and go because we have been having the funkiest weather in the region. First Fridays in KC is a great time with tons of people out going from gallery to gallery. Not so much this weekend. The weather was unseasonably cold and let’s face it, who wants to move around in a snow shower? A lot of things were canceled, so it made for a quieter First Friday. At my show, for the first half hour of the opening, there was no one. It did eventually pick up and the opening wasn’t a total bust. After that, I had a nice dinner at Pot Pie’s. My friend’s husband Victor took good care of me at the bar. The weekend was great spending time with DeAnna and her family. I managed to get to the Kemper and of course, I hit the Bob Jones shoe store. I got a cool pair of wedges by London Fly. Art and fashion are so closely linked much like art and science. These hoof shoes are probably one of my favorite art inspired shoes to date.
Remember way back in January, I had posted that I was going to start the final piece in my latch hook series called TNT? Well, here it is! I am definitely hanging up the hook for a while. I still have quite a bit of mesh and yarn left, so I’m sure I’ll be making another one – just not any time soon!
