ATC day

We plan to have one more ATC day in Aug...third Thurs.  We need to take a break and concentrate on upcoming deadlines and shows.  But come any Thursday and work on some project or just hang out.  We always have supplies to whip up some ATCs .  The next  event is Carol's.  She will be at Camino Real Shopping Center in Goleta for a group show Sat. July 26.  It sets up by Borders and the theater.  Come check it out.  The next weekend , Sunday, Aug. 3, is Dinosaur Caves, again for both of us, in Shell Beach.  Later that month Syd will be at the Grange in Los Olivos for an art show with the Artist's Guild of Santa Ynez Valley. That is Aug. 16 and is in conjunction with the annual Quick Draw event.   This is always a super interesting event.

Here are a couple of ATCs from the last trade.  I did not get everyones because I was busy with Mary checking out some old Singer sewing machines....But it was great to have Nora and Kristen join in.   These "young whipper snappers"  have such cool ideas.  I appreciate them coming by and hope to follow their art direction in the future.

Some exciting news for us is we are both getting in some publications: we are both in 1000 Artist Journal Pages by Dawn Sokol, Syd is in True Vision by LK Ludwig and Carol will be featured in Mixed Media Self Portraits due out September 1st, 2008. It is  thrilling to see that one of Carol’s articles made the preview!!! There are more books in the wings..but more on that later. Here is a site:
