Black & White & Red All Over Show

Monday was an exciting day for the group.  That was the day we hung our show at the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne.  This was our first big show in a long time and to get the lobby of The King Center was quite a coupe for us (thank you Cindy). 
When we first started talking about doing a show again, I think it was during one of our retreats after the second bottle of wine had been opened, we really wanted a theme.  I am not quite sure, but I think it had to do with the black and white clay earrings we made for our Christmas sale, which everyone loved, that we thought black and white would be unique.  Somehow the red came in a little later, maybe after the third bottle was opened.  (Don't forge there are 8 of us) and Black and White and Red All Over was born. 
We decided that everyone would do their own thing and we would compare notes and offer suggestions as we got closer to our show date.  Once again I was blown away by how different everyone's ideas were. We all really went with what appealed to us and I think that is what makes the show so unique and so interesting.  Once we had all of our works done Fay volunteered to set up a diagram with our various pieces.  She did a mock up of the King Center lobby and arranged all of our pieces by size and theme.  It was wonderful, I do not know what we would have done without it.
Kathy did some research into a way to let everyone know the theme of our show and who we were and came up with a wonderful banner that says it all.

Ta Da!!!!

Here are a few examples of our different pieces
