Hey I know it's late, but see hubby drove all the way from Chicago to see me and he's driving back... I know I know... I will be able to explain later... anyways, trying to get everything done with out doing anything...
Before I start my usual links and such. I am not sure here, hmm, went to a couple of art openings these past few days. I don't want to complain BUT I am just gonna say. If you are a gallery, and you're in the deep south, keep your doors closed! I basically collapsed of heat exhaustion. I am not kidding! (ask my buddy in WI who I was chatting with on Twitter)
Then do away the name tag stickers for artists to wear too. Being an artist, you are supposed to mysterious, daring and unknowing. Name tag stickers are for conventions or speed dating events.
AND be a little more generous with water especially if it's 95 degrees outside and 101 inside the gallery. I really hate to whine but I feel that this really was a health issue for not just tiny little me but for everyone in that hot room. If the place was having AC problems, tell folks and apologize for the inconvience.
So anyways, I am always trying to find the good in people and situations, but I feel that I had to voice my feelings here.
ok back to the drawing board:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Atlanta-GA/ARTlanta/114153206549 this is a great link to their facebook page for all things art in the ATL. I have found a lot of events, and I am able to post mine up there from the Defoor Centre. So try it and see if you can find something to do. You might get dizzy and just stay home.

http://nextmusiconline.com/ Chris Bro has a cool online radio show. It's traditional, in a sense of playing what he wants, and then cutting edge to the point, that some of the music isn't the norm. Check it out~
http://twitter.com/Molly_golightly - just as cute as Holly Golightly - she is a dying breed of semtresses that just want to create simply. She is on esty.com follow the twitter link and see what she does.
http://www.cindydavisart.com/ Cindy is a super woman. She is a wonderful artist you oughta see her paintings. She is a avid voice for going green without turning red. She believes in the word artist!
