And so the adventure begins...and the magic is already happening!
The amazing Amy Hart, sculptor and welder extraordinaire, and I are the Olive Stack Gallery Artists in Residence for the month of March. We rolled off the plane yesterday and didn't stop until nightfall and our eyelids couldn't stay up any longer.
Listowel is beyond charming and our hostess Olive is the embodiment of Irish hospitality. We will mind the gallery four days a week and make art in the studio upstairs. I'm planning to work on linoleum carving and prints - and Amy is going to make her found metal sculpture (she has already had me dumpster dive with her and is meeting all the local farmers and hardware store owners to find her tools.
Right now, I'm nibbling on my "rock pile" scone from the bakery across the street and watching Window Theater. Each floor has a lovely window that looks out onto Main Street and all the action in town - it's wonderful entertainment with a nice cuppa tea!
