So much water has gone under the bridge since I last wrote here that I'm just going to start with the present and move forward. In January I joined the Grove Gallery in East Lansing. It's a charming space with some great people, located at 325 Grove Street,just north of Ann Street (by the 7-11) in East Lansing. Grove is growing and fine-tuning all the time as resources allow. Working with the gallery is a creative process in its own right. I'm showing a number of media; encaustic, clay, acrylics, pastels and sundry others. I should be teaching some workshops there soon. Please come check us out. Jenny Schu currently has a wonderful bead and weaving exhibit worth seeing.
