The Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, FL will be presenting a multi-faceted program called “Can You Dig It?” in mid-March. Members of The Gainesville Gem and Mineral Society will be exhibiting and demonstrating a variety of lapidary and jewelry techniques, including faceting and cabochon making. I’ll be demonstrating some wire wrapping and weaving during the show.
I’m very interested in how this demo turns out, since I think I’d like to try a demonstration during the next Art Hop at the Artisans Guild (May 1). The February Art Hop was very successful. In addition to live music and refreshments, we had demonstrations by several Guild members and people really seemed to enjoy seeing artists at work. There were a lot of people in the Gallery for the entire evening.
People frequently want to know about shows I’m doing. My next show is The Spring Arts Festival here in Gainesville the end of March. If you’re in the area the last weekend of the month, don’t miss this event. Come by and say “hello.” My booth number is 139.
