International Women Celebrate!

Bloggers unite! Me, Marcia LaBelle, Tammy Hext, Nicki Ault and Barbara Muir. Tammy and I met last year and hit it off immediately, but for the rest of us it was our first time meeting face-to-face. My only regret is that we didn't have longer to properly chat! : ) 

A sample of the beautiful gallery that is AyrSpace. The walls looked fantastic. So much variety in answering the theme! You can walk around for an hour and still see something for the first time. 

My highlight of the weekend was listening to all the artists give a brief talk about why they painted what they did. It makes the pieces so much richer. The talks were powerful, funny and poignant. Skpe played a roll in the weekend too, talking with artists from South Africa and Holland. We were also serenaded to "Somewhere over the Rainbow" by Doc Rossi from France! What a treat!

Soft-cover books showcasing all of the pieces with their write-ups are available for sale from Ayrspace. That was another fun part of Saturday night - everyone exchanging books and getting each other to sign by their name. Kind of like high school year books : )

Hi Kim:

The gallery looks wonderful through your eye!

Thank you for everything you have done to make IWC! a reality.

Without would have been just another idea.
