Boy, is there a lot to celebrate!

Bent and Stef at the Butterfly Sanctuary

First reason to celebrate —

See that beautiful picture on the right?  My son Brent married Stef on Sunday … and what a good time that was!  The bride was lovely, of course, and the venue was stunning.  The weekend was filled with family and friends — all staying in the same hotel and getting to know each other better.  Brent had always said that if he ever got married, it was going to be a barbeque — and that’s what was served (from a monster barbeque truck).  We all loved it!

And now they are off to Europe.  What could be better than that?

 

This weekend!!

Second reason?

The show “Three Degrees of Celebration” opens at the Colborne Art Gallery this weekend — featuring Lindsay Anderson, Brenda Sullivan, and yours truly.  It’s all set up, the pictures have been taken of the work, and all of the hard parts of an exhibition are DONE.  All that’s left is the three potters showing up for the Opening and being friendly.  With Brenda there, Lindsay and I won’t even have to do that (she can’t help herself, she’s always friendly!).

 

Third reason?

The show is being reviewed for Fusion Magazine (check out a sample), the magazine for the Ontario Clay and Glass Association.  I’m so excited!  Can’t wait to see what Gil McElroy thinks of the work … and a bit terrified at the same time.  We are all so lucky to have our work vetted and shared with the larger clay community (but I’m sure we’re all taking deep breaths at the same time!).  When the review is published I’ll make sure to share it …

 

I think that’s enough for one day, eh?  So —

“It’s time to come together
It’s up to you, what’s your pleasure,
Everyone around the world, Come on!

Celebrate good times, come on!
It’s a celebration
Celebrate good times, come on!
Let’s celebrate”                 Cool and the Gang

 

Hope you’re having a good one!

Susan
