We are less than 2 weeks away from our very first show. As a member of the newly formed Niles Canyon Artisans, our first show is scheduled for the weekend of November 17 and 18th from 11-5 each day. It has been very exciting to see weekly progress as we put together our advertising materials, developed a logo thanks to the fabulous artwork of Connie DeGrange and layout by Conover Smith, booked the space, worked out a layout and recruited artists and artisans.
I have also been busy getting my own business in order. I have new business cards with matching bag labels. I have also borrowed some racks and display stands from Sandi Bohner, owner of Little Valley Winery and Lavender. And of course, I have been busy making pieces to sell, taking photos and creating a website. Nothing like a looming deadline to get you moving!
I am particularly pleased that my husband, Derek Johnson, will be sharing booth space with me and displaying his photographs.
The show promises to be a lot of fun. We have attracted some very impressive artists working in many different media. There is truly something for everyone!
