This Wednesday night, you might be able to find me and my husband yutzing around at P!ay Hair Lounge in Simi Valley, where my art is going to be showcased for eight weeks. We'll have a few hours that afternoon/evening get everything installed. If you're in the area, please stop by! P!ay is not "just" a hair salon (although I do get my hair did there and nowhere else), it's an artistic outlet: the salon is owned and operated by Brig Van Osten, the winner of Shear Genius Season 3. She is one of those awesome business owners who helps out the artistic community by showcasing local artists and advertising them on their website. It just happened to work out that she and I connected at the exact right time, and it just happened that she liked the digital mini-portfolio I provided.
With that luck, Brig extended the invitation for me to install my art. So for the past couple of days I have been calling up folks who own my work and asking permission to borrow pieces for the showcase. I've also been going back and touching up details on pieces in storage that I think may look too worn or that have been damaged in transport (I have moved twice in the past three/four years!). It's not a very simple process, unfortunately, so my dining room has taken a pretty hard beating while I get organized for Wednesday.
