That's right, folks: the jackrabbits are off to spend some time at ColdFire Brewing! After their delightful stay down at Noisette this summer, they have decided they have a taste for travel... Especially if it involves locally crafted, delightful food and drink. The folks at ColdFire have invited me to hang my art in their fine establishment for the months of August and September. I installed the bunnies this morning, along with their goat and owl friends and a family of fieldmice.
I hope you'll stroll down with your own friends and have a pint, made for you right on site by the Hughes family, and of course also a burger from HayBaby, the food cart that lives out front. You'll find ColdFire Brewing at 263 Mill Street, Eugene. I myself plan to be there on Wednesday evening for some beverage and vittles and some good chatter with fine friends in a lovely, welcoming space. Perhaps I shall see you there!
P.S.: I would like to send out a hearty thanks to some of the people who helped me make this first art show adventure a success. Thanks to Juli Brode and Greg Slowik/Greg Slowik Design, for the loan of their drill press. Thanks to Nancy and Boomer McNaught, of Boomer's Grilled Brats and More (...like jerkey. Yum.), for the loan of the green tent and instruction in its operation. Thanks to uncommonly fine land-people Bill & Carolyn for letting me test the operation in the back parking lot, helping me lug the tent in and out of the basement 68 times, and coming by to say hi on the day of the Festival. And thank you to dear friends KT>, & KW, who came by to see me and buy a few things! You warmed my heart. Thanks y'all.
TOOT DE DO! THE SHOP IS (finally) OPEN!
The shelves are all built, the lighting is in, the tall, old-fashioned cash register, with its chinging bell, is waiting atop the glassy display case. And! Finally there is something to buy! It is too soon to have a Grand Opening, but a Petit one is just the thing! Won't you come on over and take a gander at the happy cards and art prints? You can invest in just a single card, or a whole set, or a little something to hang on the wall! I hope they all will bring you a little cheer.
We are ready to ship to you if you live in the United States. International customers, hold tight! It's coming soon for you too.
