A friend of mine and two of his buddies were opening a new art gallery- "Ars Populi"- and the initial show was "The Human Face" and I was invited to show a few pieces. I dug out a few portrait pieces. One of me...
and another of Phillip Slein, an old drawing instuctor of mine. Phil now has a gallery in downtown St. Louis- the "Phillip Slein Gallery".
I decided to display a few pieces of my collection of hood ornaments and the only place I had was to mount them on some of the cabinets in my studio. I like it. I like it a lot!
A shot of a little inspiration..
When I was considering some pieces to possibly exhibit at the Zanesville Museum, I had to drag out some pieces that were more or less buried for a few years.
This "Frozen Seedheads" piece was included in the show.
As was this "Koi Pond" piece.
One more pic of a few Oldsmobile hood ornaments.
Here is one of the show's commemorative pots that I kept. It is a perfect piece, but its "perfection" is hard to convey in a photo.
As scout leaders, my wife, Kathy, and I attend a week long summer camp at S-F Scout Ranch. It is always a great time. Since my wife is a grade school teacher, we always take the youngest newbie scouts that are at summer camp for the first time. Here is the Wolf patrol this year.
They were all after Woodcarving Merit Badge.
I like this photo of dinner time just before the opening campfire. It is the only time the scouts don't do their own cooking.
I am the fishing merit badge advisor and I took the kids fishing. The only time I did not go with them, the rods came back looking like this!!!
I drove up to the Zanesville to deliver my "Fifty Pots" for the show at the museum and Amy- pictured here- did the installation.
I just pulled out the pots and let her arrange the show any way she pleased.
The show actually has 94 pieces and it looks great.
Here are a few pics...
The show will be up nearly all summer. The musuem had an opening reception for my that coinsided with a big annual art pottery event called "Pottery Lovers". Well, the Pottery Lovers have an annual banquet and it was held at the Zanesville Museum and the banquet was held in a meeting room directly across for my show. It was a perfect venue for me.
Here is the view from the banquet room...
and if I turn around, a photo of the banquet in progress.
Pottery Lovers is a big event and there are a number of comtemporary potters there. Here is Eric Olson of Common Ground Pottery.
Although I did attend Pottery Lovers, I was not exhibiting for sale. However, some stauch supporters of my work through the years decided to unload a few of their 82 pots of mine that they had puchased. Pictured are a few of about twenty they were selling. I was a good thing as people were constantly asking me what room I was selling out of. Since I was not selling, I could refer them to my friend's room. It worked out well.
That is all for now.
