From the Editors…
Happy new year! The days are starting to get longer and that means more carving time every week. This issue we are highlighting NWSSA member Eirene Blomberg, who shares with us how her work as a sculptor has been developing and becoming a more central part of her life.
There are several exhibition opportunities to be aware of, whether you just want to see colleagues sculpture on display or would like to exhibit work yourself. See Cyra Jane’s article about the Seattle Erotic Art Festival (SEAF) to learn about how to get involved. If you would like to have a sculpture considered for the 2020 exhibition, get in touch with Cyra right away; she is still accepting submissions to be juried up through January 25th, 2020. Over the longer term, we expect to need large works for exhibition in our new rotating public art exhibit at Marymoor Park. See the article about the launch of our King County Public Art in the Park to learn more.
Last but not least, the 4th annual Women’s Hand Carving Weekend and Show will be the weekend of June 5th, 6th, and 7th this year. It will continue at its usual venue, the Old Alcohol Plant in Port Hadlock, WA. If you have any questions, please reach out to Ellie Hochman by phone/text at 206-419-3499.
Be well, read about art, talk to other artists, and make something to soothe your soul. See you soon at the Winter Gathering on February 8th.
