Hello fellow crafters and craft lovers. Well, we've entered August and for me that means higher temperatures and less motivation. The craft wheels have to keep turning though and tonight there are 2 great events in Dallas. One is First Thursday in the Bishop Arts District and the other is a trunk show at The House of Dang. If you live in the D, definitely hit one or both. Here's a link to info:
Now for something else.... Has anyone stumbled upon the new channel called OvationTV? It's the only network devoted to art and personal creativity with the best of performance, people, art, music and film. So far I've seen a wonderful program about Mark Rothko (one of my favorite painters) and last night I saw a another great show about Degas and his sculpture The Little Dancer. Everyday there is something I'm really interested in. If you have cable or satellite tv you should be getting this channel.
One more thing. Recently my husband and I had a great discussion about art and music and wondered if painting is dead. By that I mean, could it be possible that everything that can be done in the realm of canvas painting has in fact been done? I plan to write an article about this for the DCM newsletter soon. Think on it and share if you like. :)
Enjoy your day.
