Change of pace

I have ranted this week - but it's been in my own home : - )

My art group is having a show this coming Sunday and I have been busy getting ready. What I have learned is that although I love taking pictures and doing other forms of art - I HATE the "getting ready for a show" part. I'll be back to more regular blogging next week.

But I must say that watching the Red Sox win last night made the matting process a lot more fun...and after I set up my space this afternoon - I will return for more matting while watching game 2 of the World Series.

Here is our Press Release
ORA: Northwest Jewish Artists

Portland, Oregon- October 28th, 9am-3pm
Neveh Shalom
2900 SW Peaceful Lane
Portland Oregon

The magic begins as you enter our Main Exhibit Hall. Live music by well known recording artists and performers will greet your ears, and a coffee house featuring fresh treats will tantalize your palate as you listen to the musical stylings of Stephanie Schneiderman (of Dirty Martini fame), George Fendel, jazz pianist, and Justin Jude, recently named "Oregon's Best Singer/Songwriter 2007!"

Stroll from exhibit to exhibit to experience a unique show that blends the best elements of a gallery opening with an artist colony tour -- with a coffee house of a forgotten age tossed in. Celebrating their second year as a collective, ORA artists invite the public to
discover their new work. Although the artists are Jewish, Judaic and secular works are available for purchase.
