Went to the opening of Bob Rankin's show, "Metamorphosis 2"at the Captain White House in Graham, NC this past Thursday evening. I know Bob through a weeklong workshop I took with him 2 summers ago. He is an excellent instructor and was a positive influence on my own artwork. He was an art teacher in the Wake Co. system for many years, and that has given us a great deal to talk about, not only art, but art education. Hope you get a chance to see the show. As always, excellent work.

Art Educators Visit Starworks

On Thursday of this past week, several Randolph Co. art teachers took the time to visit the Starworks glass and ceramics facility in Star, NC. We were treated to a tour of the facilities and a 30 minute glass blowing demo. The Starworks folks have a wonderful old building that they are renovating and offer tours and demos year round. If you haven't been, you should definitly make a trip. Here is a link to their website:

Tyler D Opening in Burlington

Ed and I went to the grand opening of the Tyler D Studios in Burlington last night. Doug and Betty, the owners, put on quite an event with many art enthusists from the area showing up. The Alamance Jazz Band (hope I got that right) provided some great sounds. Several faculty members from Elon University had work on exhibit along with others. They have a wonderful space, with room for artist studios, classrooms and lots of exhibit space.Although they don't have a web page yet, here is some info about their studio: .
Looking forward to more exhibits in the future!
