Sculpture Show's A Comin'

The tune "The Wells Fargo Wagon" from the musical The Music Man was my earworm when I titled this piece. No photos in this post (I promise some after the weekend) but I have a lot of links for you. For the next 2 weeks I'll be really busy working and recovering from this coming weekend. I work for a sculptor and this is where I'll be over the weekend: the Loveland Sculpture Invitational. It is a good time to build clientel and to network. Your patrons show up and so do the gallery owners. You take orders for life-size and monumental pieces or small tabletop sizes.; commissions happen too. We are taking a lower profile this year because of a very large project/commission that will take the next 18 months. Therefore we are only taking smaller pieces and no large ones. Setup and teardown will be a breeze! Yeah!

Running concurrently is Sculpture in the Park , another sculpture show, and Art in the Park, "which features handmade treasures and artwork from crafters and artists througout the nation". Here's an article online from the local newspaper. Yes, dear readers, three (count 'em) three! art-y type shows all in one weekend. Streets are blocked off and shuttle buses run back and forth from the local mall's parking lot. Three days of fun and sun and lots of people.

I don't sculpt. But I have cleaned clay and worked on the molding crew. Maybe some day... naw -- I like my fabric.


  1. Hi Paula,

    You just left a comment on my blog. Do you realize you are one of the people who is hiding their email? The comment I just got from you had "noreply-comment@blogger.com" as the sender address. Follow the instructions I posted to change that, and let me know if you have trouble doing it.

  2. you could sculpt with fabric - thanks for your comment on my blog, and I enjoyed visiting the links about the show...
