Stowe Street Arts Festival
Today I am breathing a big sigh of relief.
For the past several months, I’ve been working as a consultant for the Stowe Street Arts Festival in Waterbury, Vermont. This was the first time that I’d worked on an art show where I didn’t exhibit. For weeks, I’ve worried about the fact that our weather has been rainy for most of the summer.
Yesterday was the big day.
And it was fabulous!
Lots of people showed up for a day of full of art. There were no major catastrophes and no rain all day long – thank you masters of weather, wherever you are. You made the artists very very happy. And me. I was happy too.
There were lots of reasons to be happy about yesterday. One of them is that I bought a painting for my studio. I should let it be known that I am really picky about what I hang on my walls. That would explain why most of the walls in my home are bare. My poor husband. I fell in love with this painting by Tally Groves the moment I saw it. It is now mine.
The most interesting part of the story is that it turns out that Tally and I both went to the same graduate school – Lesley University. More specifically, we both attended the same program and have Master’s degrees in Expressive Therapies from Lesley. A bit of serendipity there.
Of course, I can’t ignore the similarity between the painting and my business logo.
What can I say – there’s comfort in the familiar.
