I am refreshing my studio space..well that is my way of facing this huge task of downsizing fourteen years of establishing my studio "nest".. My little oasis away from home.
It makes me ponder why we get attached to "things".. A lot of my stuff has brought me comfort to view, to touch, to have around me ..To connect me with other eras..To shape the space I work in..
I have not been able to use my studio rented space-my storefront to its full potential of late..when I leave it abandoned and empty for a week it feels wrong. My other work takes a lot of my personal energy and family in other city beckons me often.
I always stress to other artists to create your personal space-wherever you are -even if it's a corner table.
My little home will soon feature that "corner" . I intend to create big ,interesting new works in my small space..I will continue to offer classes ad shows in the larger community
In the meantime it's time to pare down! I will keep the talismans and special objects that make me smile -and say farewell to the extra stuff that I have loved but that takes up space..
On Sunday August 13 11-4 in Chesley Ontario(main street at the stoplight across from the old hotel!) I will hold an initial sale at my studio -including some old art pieces,assemblages,suitcases and lots of quirky vintage stuff and furnishings..including tables/drafting tables ,children and adult art supplies!(Attention collage artists .. I will feature tons of vintage emphemera.). My final community sale will be held on Saturday August 19th..11-4
