June 6-8, 2009 – Work and the Wild Arts Walk

The past three days we have worked.  Saturday started the “Artist in Residence” Program – every Saturday from 10-2 an artist will be demonstrating.  This week was Jamie Smith, who teaches at U of A and does cartoons and has illustrated several books.  What a great guy and interesting person.

Yesterday was the Refuge’s Fundraiser “Wild Arts Walk”  where they had many artists demonstrating and selling their goods. 

On Saturday, Andy spent a long day preparing the grounds. and on Sunday, he worked on the set up and take down crew and I did various jobs helping and taking down.  I did get a chance to stop at two of the booths where the artists were selling jewelry.  I had a long conversation with Hilda – she does jewelry in a number of mediums and will be here on Saturday as part of the “Artist in Residence” Program (and we will chat more then).

We have decided to just take it easy tomorrow – we are not use to working long days – LOL!
