Amy McNeill, Miriam Kaufman and me (Barbara Muir)
in front of the wall with my paintings.Dear friends,
What a year in art! I'm glad it finished off with a lovely and intimate show in a
working artists and artisans' studio. A great vibe for an exhibition and
excellent company. Thank you to Miriam (Meej) for organizing the show,
for her gorgeous jewellry, (yes of course I bought a piece!),
and for leading guests on a tour of the space. Thank you to Amy McNeill
for her great ceramics, and cool abstract figurative pieces. And for her joyous spirit.
We had fun conversations and someone will be the lucky recipient of one of her
holiday stained glass pieces.
Thanks to Gill Cameron, who couldn't be with us this weekend, but whose
gorgeous watercolour work made a beautiful contribution to the show.
Also thanks to Gill for her card display and space for my cards too. We both
did very well with our packs of note cards.
I want to thank Daniel Anaka for manning the door and helping people find us.
The Akin Artisans Studios are in a former factory, and Miriam Kaufman's studio
is down an outside walk, and then a bit of a hallway to her door. More than worth
the short walk.
Thanks to my sweet husband Steven van Schaik, who hung the show for
me with great care and patience, and who was on hand if we needed
And thanks to all our guests, who came out, bought our work, enjoyed
spending some time with us, and made the show a success!
