So my San Jose Holiday Art Market event was a smashing success this year. We had a great turn out of enthusiastic shoppers show up and I am very proud and pleased with how well it all turned out. We had 10 artists on Saturday 11/16 and 9 on Sunday 11/17...all brought fantastic quality work and a wonderful group of folks in general to work with. I had considered making 2013 the final year for this event...BUT we had such a good time of it we are going forward for another next year. For more info and to see photos from our recent weekend please take a look at the website gallery page here: sjartmarket.wix.com/shop#!grid…
Many sincere thanks for the birthday well wishes. I spent my birthday evening at my art reception for my solo show "Uncanny" that has been up at Dada Art Bar since October 22nd. We postponed the "opening" to more of a "closing" so that I could celebrate it simultaneously with my birthday. I figured that might work as a good ploy to get people to show up...and it worked! The rain that night kept a few folks from coming but many more did make the trek out and joined me for a really fun evening. I posted some photos on my Facebook page

Today I updated my Etsy site by marking down prices & shipping costs for 5 assemblage pieces and 3 glass snow globes just in time for your holiday shopping. Each make unique, one-of-a-kind gifts for you or your loved ones. You can check them out here:www.etsy.com/shop/CollageLodge
This past Sunday my partner and I were able to attend a Cirque Du Soleil performance of their new show Amaluña
. We never miss them when they come to town and I'm happy this year was no exception. I am captivated by the circus arts and the magic that ensue's under the Big Top. I will put that inspiration to use in the coming months as I create a new series of work for an upcoming show I am participating in May 2014 called "Circus Freaks And Sideshows". I already have many ideas marinating in my mind and am anxious to bring them to life and sharing them on D.A. to get your input.
My next show is coming up at City Art Gallery
in San Francisco and runs December 2013 through January 2014. I'll have all 8 of my small assemblage Cheesecrate family on exhibit in the back room. Please join me for the opening reception on Friday, December 6th 7-10pm if you find yourself in the S.F. Bay Area.
Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
