Open Table Tuesday Fun...
Before we had the store, I was acutely aware of the solitude my practice as an artist created. I would champ at the bit for the next big show or art event, so that I could see "people of my tribe". There's just something magical that happens when you get a group of creative people together. When the doors of our space finally opened, I knew that I wanted to offer an event like this. Gina Chalfant and Karen Shablik encouraged me to host the event and told me stories about their own experiences with groups like this. I didn't know how it would go and honestly, the first couple attempts were a little sad. But eventually things started to shape up and develop.
Last night was a wonderful evening; lots of laughs and show-and-tells. I'm really pleased that this project is taking off and people are coming out every second Tuesday to leave their cares behind and have a good time.
