Uhh, do they still sell Beanies and Weenies? You see, when I was a kid, I liked the tiny hot dogs in the beans... sort of like a mid westerners gourmet hors d'oeurves back so many years ago.
OK, if we were chatting on that Facebook thingee, I know you would be hammering the keys: "What this has to do with art?" (typing with an accent) ...well, patience darling!
You see, Karla Matzke is hosting the 19th annual "Honey, I Shrunk the Art" at her 10 acre sculpture park and 3,000 square foot gallery on Camano Island. This show runs between November 14, 2009 and January 3, 2010.
Are you with me yet? Hot Dog! I'm excited to be in this show! But perhaps since it's about small works of art, I should be seeing if our island grocery store has Beanies and Weenies to get in the spirit of this event.
In any event, if you are within 3 days drive of the island, be certain to come on over to the Matzke Fine Art Gallery and Sculpture Park at 2345 Blanche Way on Camano Island.
If you are in the Stanwood, Washington area, please take a moment to stop by the Stanwood Community Resource Foundation office at 9620 271st NW, Stanwood, WA 98292. This is venue for the Art in Public Places for the Stanwood Camano Arts Guild, for which, I am the site manager. This exhibit will continue through mid - April, 2010.
You will be treated to a beautiful exhibit of original paintings and photographs from nine members of our guild in a welcoming location. The foundation office has the feel of a home of times past, where one can enjoy browsing shelves of books that are for sale. Have a chat over a meeting table, or speak with a representative regarding services available through the Resource Foundation.
In the photo above you see the photography of Ron Southworth above the fireplace and Richard Swetman below the window to the left of the fireplace.
