Just dropping off a couple of photos from the Sanchez reception tonight. It was a really good crowd, but if you stopped by at about 8:20 you would have no idea. Everyone cleared out quickly by 8:30. I'm sure that they had some other Friday night plans. :) Anywho, we always take a standard "this is Meg with her drawings" photos.. this one makes me a look a little psychotic though. I was in the middle of a joke when Albert shot it. He then refused to retake it, so I guess we're all stuck with this one. I also need to buy more shirts that AREN'T black! And a pic of the crowd! :) Sorry, no pics of the food.. it was pretty much wiped out by the time we got there! I think the neatest thing about this show was that a handful of the artists I showed with last month in Berkeley were back again in this show. So I got to see some new stuff from them too. I'm also starting to see a little bit of a pattern in the pieces that are walking away with awards. Once things settle down where I can get back to work again, I want to look more critically of my own work and see if there's any changes I can make (or want to make).

Sorry again for the lack of posts.. I've been busy with wedding preparations (wedding is this Wed!!) and I ended up getting a new job at one of the art museums here in SF (which I am super excited about also!). :) Anywho, the notice is a little late, but tomorrow (Friday) is actually the opening reception for the Bay Area Annual at the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica. The show begins at 7 pm, and ends at 9pm. I plan to pop by around 8 to take some photos and see everything. Hopefully, it will be nice. I wasn't very impressed with the space when I dropped off my work, but I mainly entered this one for the juror anyway (Rene de Guzman curates the Oakland Art Museum). Two of my more recent pencil works ("Glare" and "Closure") are showing for the first time also. :) I'll see ya there!

The show for the Art League of Northern California has come and gone, and I'm happy to announce that "Warmth" received an Honorable Mention! This is my first award outside of school, and I'm super excited. :) I'm going to go get this framed at some point.. just for kicks. I'm also very happy to announce that "Warmth" sold, and, actually, the lady who purchased it sent me a wonderful postcard in the mail telling me that she is enjoying the piece, and requested to be notified of further shows. :D It's very flattering when someone likes your work enough to buy it, and I quickly sent her a hand-written thank you note.
