We are working on preparations for an art show in December at The Covey Center For The Arts. Usually, we just work on the art and someone else puts the show together, but we did a show last year at the center, so we didn't have enough new work to carry the whole thing. So we deceided to invite friends who are artists to be in the show.
Have you ever noticed that many very creative people are also very flaky? You would think that at least artists who make a living at their art would be somewhat organized, but that isn't the case.
I called several friends to see why they hadn't responded to the invitation. The answer? Oh I opened that e-mail but didn't have time to read it!
Then there were the worriers, what kind of art can it be, how big should it be, what medium should I use, can it be mixed media, where is it, detail, detail and more detail? On and on, I just want to say call me when you make a decision.
It's been really fun to work out the problems. We've lined up some really wonderful pieces. And the show will really be great!
The official name of the show is “A Collective Season Of Joy”. It will run from December 5th to December 29th, 2008. And if you want to meet the artists, you should come to it on the 5th, same day as the gallery stroll downtown. There will be refreshments that evening. It's at The Covey Center For The Arts, 425 West Center Street, Provo, Utah 84601
