For the first time Art Westport has accepted me--a show that only takes artists from a 40 mile radius of the show's zip code. I live 1.6 miles from there but I might as well have lived on Mars for the last decade because the judges passed me up year after year when I applied with my clocks. For a few years I boycotted the show (both going and applying) because of hurt feelings and general WTF-ness. This year I applied with mixed media ladies and they asked me to show. So it better be good!
There are two other shows I've never been in--CRAFT and Barstow Arts Festival are first-year shows, but they're in Kansas City proper, so I thought I'd give them a shot. If things don't go well, at least I will be sleeping in my own bed!

Later in November I'll be selling at the Lake Quivira Holiday Bazaar for the second time and then gearing up for our big Studio Sale at Meya Ceramic Studio through the KC Clay Guild the first Friday weekend of December. It's our fourth year!
I'm excited that my shows are relatively close and packed together, because then I'll be able to see just what many of my friends go through when they're showing every weekend. I might hate it! But what if I love it? I don't have to drive more than 4.5 hours to any location, which I can definitely handle. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and finding new ice cream joints along the way!
