The many lives of glass brought to you in the form of beads and mosaics during the month of
June at the Gallery on the corner of Bridge and Market Street in downtown Johnsonburg.

Utilizing Beads as an art form is such a unique portrayal of color, texture and movement for the eye to drink in and then to pair beads with the art of mosaics is a perfect combination for the senses.

I have been spinning in life

You see below just some of the activity that I have been setting up, organizing and
pulling off along with the running the Gallery, writing articles for the papers, setting
up classes, starting a coffee shop/art cafe', heading up focus groups for the town, serving
on committees/boards, not to mention running my wonderfully patient family, etc. etc.
The 17th was a focus group held in what was our Theatre/Opera house in which I coordinated and the owner hosted. He is in charge of coordinating the next and then that person will host and so on.
The now owner wants to reopen this wonderful landmark in our history!!! He gave a tour and
proposed changes/restorations he is working towards. I have pics and will post them later.
The Gateway Art League Alliance is planning a road trip to cull knowledge to use towards
helping him for we are talking at least $2 m with the hope for $3.5 m. The one theatre we are visiting is the Barrow Civic Theatre in Franklin Pa., for they received in all $2 m.

Elementary and HS art teachers, organizers of the District artshow.
They are two brand new art teachers this year whom in their very ambitious ways decided to
organize our first district artshow. It was a lovely display of K-12 works.

The show took up the entire gymnasium so, we needed to place the refreshments
in what will be the ART CAFE'. I am going to pick up the little oak craftsmenstyle
tables today as well as the original library style tables that were in the original
library housed in the building. Artwork will be hung as an extension of my gallery
and have a coffee house/internet cafe' housed here also.
