Enough about us…

by Sue Dawson

 

WHAT ABOUT YOU? That’s what I keep thinking, as the 2014 gallery season is winding down. Alison’s on the Cape teaching her second of three workshops this fall. We’ve shifted our focus back to teaching, for the Vineyard off-season. Nine of our Mentorship students from last year are moving on to our Advanced Mentorship program, starting now. The last thing they did as Mentorship students was to send us a selection of their latest images, and a short bio or artist statement. We’ve added a new section to our website to highlight their accomplishments, and to tell you a little bit more about them. I highly recommend checking it out.

Our 2014-2015 Mentorship program starts in early November. I’ve got quite a list of people who’ve expressed interest in joining, and am about to start calling them back, to fill the 10 available spots. If your heart just leapt a bit, let’s talk.

Our last opening reception of the season…

by Sue Dawson

IT’S SO HARD TO BELIEVE that we’re already past Labor Day, the school year has started, and the Vineyard summer season is officially over. The good news is that September is so amazing here. The weather’s usually mild, the water’s warm, and it’s WAY less crowded. For us, the fall season also means workshops, and our last show of the season – our “Best of” show.

This year we’re so excited that Cathy Walthers will be here for our opening reception on Sunday (yes, Sunday), from 4 to 6pm. Her new book, “Kale, Glorious Kale,” just arrived, and it’s full of fantastic recipes. We’re huge kale fans – Alison makes roasted kale at least three times a week these days, and our whole family loves it. Cathy and Alison will sign books, and Cathy’s bringing lots of great kale treats for you to try. I’ve said this before, but when Cathy invites you over to a meal, it’s your lucky day. She’s a private chef, teaches cooking classes (I highly recommend taking one, by the way), and has published a number of cookbooks. She’s known for her healthy, fresh take on slow food (as opposed to fast food). One of her books, “Raising the Salad Bar,” has sold over 50,000 copies so far. She’s that good.

Hope you can make it on Sunday!
