Thanks so much to Kristen, printer extraordinaire, from 622press in Madison, WI for featuring me and my work in her blog. Check out her very nice entry here: http://622press.wordpress.com/
Her past features are great, but the best is her own story about obtaining a press (pix and story are in the blog) and setting up a studio. Be sure to read her "About" section. I love seeing original, handmade work created in its pure, original form. Thanks again!

I'm happy to say I'll be donating 3 framed photographs to this amazing fundraiser at the National Building Museum in May 2008. I enjoyed it so much last year and look forward to attending again this year. More info on attending the event can be found below.
Come celebrate the beauty of compassion, and support the expanding work of Miriam's Kitchen at The Seventh Annual 100 Bowls of Compassion!
6:00 - 9:30p.m.
At the National Building Museum
"Compassion is like the moon shining on one hundred bowls of water, so that there are one hundred moons, one in each bowl. This is not the moon’s design nor was it designed by anyone else. But for some strange reason there seems to be one hundred moons in one hundred bowls of water.”- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Tibetan Meditation Master
~ ~ ~
Over 500 people attended The 6th Annual 100 Bowls of Compassion event and raised $265,000 to support Miriam’s Kitchen’s programming. The night’s festivities included gourmet food, live music, live and silent auctions, and an open bar. The beautiful National Building Museum was the perfect backdrop to this elegant event that was staffed by Miriam’s Kitchen volunteers. More than 50 talented potters from around the world contributed a wide range of beautiful bowls, platters, and vases for last year’s auction. Also, dozens of individuals and businesses donated gifts and services for the live auction.
If you are interested in sponsoring, hosting, donating, or purchasing tickets to this event, please contact Ashley at 202.452.8926 x.04 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I'll be hanging some new originals at the upcoming Artomatic 2008. Don't miss this great event - - and, it's back in DC!
May 9 – June 15, 2008 Capitol Plaza I, 1200 First Street, NE Washington, DC 20002 Metro stop: Red Line, New York Ave., M Street exit
Artomatic is a month-long multimedia arts event that draws together visual artists, musicians and performers and brings their work to the community without charge.
It was originally conceived as a way to break down the geographical and social segmentation of the Washington arts scene, to bring art directly to the public and to build cohesion among artists. The city's ongoing development in recent years has diffused the arts community by breaking up pockets of artist studios. In addition, local artists are sometimes overshadowed by national blockbuster shows and federal landmarks. Artomatic provides a forum for all of our area's artists to convene, perform and exhibit, strengthening the visibility, cohesion, and marketplace of Washington's arts community.
