Alexandria Arts Safari and Festival for the Arts
I had a fabulous day today sharing lots of art with lots of people. At the Arlington Arts Safari, perched on plastic chairs outside the Fiberworks Gallery in the Torpedo Factory, I made lots of friends and lots of paper Treasure Boxes. I got pictures of my friends Cameron (blonde with bangs), Linden and Bonnie (sisters in aqua and white shirts), and Jasmine (dark hair and royal blue shirt). We had a grand time. I also saw my friends Luke, Betsy and Francisco Balicao; Bailey, Sidney, Aimee, and Mark Weinstein; Anna, Larry, and Patty Lai; and the ever-loving Marcy Goode (Mom).
While that extravaganza was going on inside, the Alexandria Festival of the Arts was happening outside. One of my pieces, "Blue Men of Alexandria," was featured in the Local Color booth, sponsored by the Alexandria Commission for the Arts. The booth will be up tomorrow, too, September 10, and then will hang in the Alexandria City Hall until October 7. I've included a couple pictures of that booth. We all have to live through these pictures: Mom took them while I was box-making all day, and I never even saw my baby on display in person.
