A Busy Week

"Stitch" opened at The Reston Arts Center on the 16th, then I took off for Fort Lauderdale, where I was a visiting artist at Broward College. I gave a talk on Thursday the 23rd (they tell me they videotaped it and it will available on YouTube some time this week), and a condensed, 3 hr version of my Visual Voice Workshop on Friday the 24th.

I have lined up a 2-day Dig Deep: Visual Voice Workshop with The Art Armory in West Palm Beach for 2015, and a Publicity Hat Workshop that we are hoping to schedule for 2014.
