Getting Ready for the Tour

Tonight was the reception at the Artscenter in Carrboro for the Orange County Artists Guild Open Studio Tour - most of us on the tour had a piece hanging which is great advertising for the tour as many folks will come look at those representative pieces before deciding which of the 60+ studios they want to visit. What goes less noticed (even by us) sometimes is that those pieces are also for sale. So when we showed up and noticed that JennySlash's pen-and-ink didn't have a label we were a little perturbed. While we tried to get an "official" label on it, we went ahead and put a handwritten label on it and before we could replace it, a red dot appeared on it. Sale!!

So we kinda decided that the handwritten label was just fine. Way to go, JS!

Had a lot of fun tonight - I'm getting more comfortable talking about my photography both to other artists and to the folks that came in looking. Had a nice conversation with a recent arrival to Chapel Hill from France with her kids who really seemed to like my Currituck Lighthouse photo and kept suggesting that I really need to go to Lyon and photograph the old houses and manors there. Sounds like a good idea to me!
