Building Excitement…

studio set up 1“What is this?” I hear you asking. This is the way the studio looked first thing this morning. Tables and walls are set up – the design student art work has begun to arrive.

After a well-deserved day off yesterday during with I re-acquainted myself with my camera at the Windscape Kite Festival in Swift Current (you can read about it here) I started the morning by getting the display space ready for hanging the work tomorrow.

studio set up 2No sooner did I have the table cloths in place when my friend Susan arrived to drop off her work. We had not seen each other for a while so the afternoon was spent catching up. We talked about Quilt Canada and what we both had been up to over the past few weeks. Susan had great details about her holiday in Nova Scotia, one of my favorite places!

studio set up 3By the time the afternoon drew to a close the tables had begun to full up with boxes and bins. Tomorrow the last of the work will arrive by car from Saskatoon. Ten students from Saskatoon will make up half the exhibition this year. I can’t wait to see what arrives. This time tomorrow night I will have the studio close to ready for the exhibition and my oven will be working overtime as I begin to bake the various goodies for visitors. Check back in a couple of days – I plan to post some images of the hanging of the art work.

The rest of our Sunday was utilized well. Colin grabbed every opportunity between rain showers and downpours trying to complete his special projects in the yard. And I actually spent some time with this month’s CDAs (Creative Daily Acts). When Elinor suggested the theme “Singing in the Rain” back at the end of December I wasn’t sure if it would be appropriate… but Elinor must have had a direct line to the weather man. “Rain” sums up this month very well. I am working with a limited color palette and script. Only a little over a week and I will have created 182 CDAs, half a year’s worth of small Artlets. It hasn’t been easy, especially this month with travel and nearly no time to myself. However, I caught up and am on track for June. I am beginning to regain control over my schedule and detect a slight feeling of accomplishment.

    Anna, how long will the show be on? Minnie


    • Minnie, the student exhibition will be on June 27th (10 am – 9 pm) and June 28th (10 am – 6 pm). This is an annual event, it usually takes place on the third weekend of June but with my trip to Ontario I pushed it back to the last weekend of June this year.

    Way to go Anna!!


    • Wish you could come and check it out, Linda! It will be the best exhibition in the studio yet! Twenty students and every single one is contributing to the show this year – I am so proud of each and every one! Their commitment and perseverance must be commended!
