Ponies, History Club (Her Stories), First Friday with Gary and Art Opening at Marti's on Main.
These girls produce fine eggs in all colors...we have had the pleasure of being given a few dozen.
The premier chicken hotel with a fenced in 1/2 acre yard.
There about 25 women who belong to the History Club and they usually meet at each other's homes.
For most of the year they meet twice a month and two presentations are made at each meeting, based on the theme for the year. Currently they are writing "Her Stories" and each member will write about something in their past that they want to share with family and friends.
Janice has a beautiful home. (By the way, it's not all that easy to set up seating for 25).
She plays the piano and sings with the Rochester Oratorio Society.
The two women on the left presented today. Deb (left) traced her family all the way back to the late 1600s and told us about a bawdy woman who owned a tavern. She has been one of my art students and has already illustrated a book she wrote on her family history. Now she needs to illustrate the story she told us. Bonnie (next to her) posed the question "To Camp or Not to Camp" and talked about it's merits over the past 50 years. So interesting, it motivates me to write something.
Back to Part One for about 40 minutes.
Lorrie did chores, and I was off to
Part Three....First Friday at the Alumni House.
Another good crowd.
Karen and Jenny stopped in.
Spent about 45 minutes there and headed to Albion....
for Part Four.
The Art Opening at Marti's on Main.
Ahhhhh....music to my ears. I could have sat on the porch and listened for hours....
I've already posted a lot of student work, and it was difficult to get photographs with the glass in the frames. A nice, strong show.
Kim always has a nice spread in the gallery kitchen, and my students also brought goodies.
Michael O'Keefe had a show in the upstairs gallery....acrylics.
Kim Martilotta, the gallery owner, has quite a permanent collection. I love the looseness in this painting of horses.
People of all ages attended the opening....
Donna and Tina were feelin' their cheerios.
By that time, Roger was ready to hit the road.
This has been a very long day.
