There are a lot of posts all over the social media groups about the value of an NAIA membership.  There seems to be a constant barage of comments across the board.   Should I join?  Should I re-up my…Continue

We lost one of our own this week

We lost one of our own this week and I just want to say that I will miss glass blower Joe Becker. He was a fine artist, a true character and an interesting man. He was my friend and a neighbor in the winter when the artist tribe from Minnesota made their trek south. I am so sorry and I want to send love and hugs to Joes family especially his brother Doug. I know everyone has a Joe Becker story. I think it would be nice if we share them right here in his honor. I'll start:See More

We Lost a Friend.

We lost one of our own on Monday. Gene Brenner was an artist, a potter, a gallery owner, an art collector, a teacher, a show director and a supporter of anything art related. He was a kind man with a hearty laugh and a good friend to everyone he ever met. I met him at the Cedar Key Art Festival when I was 23. He will be missed ...

hey there,I need some help. I saw a link to an interesting article a while back somewhere (I can't remember) and I'm trying to find it. It was an article about artists and a realistic number of collectors that we all need. It pointed out, for example, how many paintings an artist could do in their lifetime, and then the actual number of collectors and buyers they would need to have a successful career. Does anyone remember it? Did anyone save it? If you can point me in the right direction I'd…See More

Northern Michigan Accomodations

Posted on June 29, 2011 at 10:42am 1 Comment

For any of you out there looking for a place to hang between shows in Northern Michigan, the lodge next to me is a great spot.  It's inexpensive, is good for working or playing and has lots of vacancies this summer.  Brethren Bungalows is in the small town of Brethren.  It is right next to my cabins.  Brethren is on the Manistee River which is an awesome fishing, tubing, canoeing river.  It is about 15 minutes from Manistee and Lake Michigan.  The lodge consists of 6 small 1-2 bedroom, clean…

Sure, Carroll, anyone can write a blog. The originator of the blog can be deleted by its author. I also have the power to delete content that I don't think should be on the site.

There have been many disagreements on this site, as on any Forum, but in general things have been harmonious. I have been told by those who know about the management of these things that too much interference with the dialogue invalidates it and kills the site.

You can imagine I have not been agreement with everything I read here!
