Artist gathering 7.30.10 (Pam Farrell's studio)

On Friday, I took the chance to get out of the city for a few hours, courtesy of Pam Farrell, who opened her home and studio in New Jersry to a group of artist friends for lunch and a bit of 'show and tell'. She asked us to bring work that we might want to discuss with the group. I also got to meet Lisa Pressman and  Ravenna Taylor in person after a long time of us knowing of each other's work through the 'net. I caught a ride to Pam's with Rob Solomon and David Foss. We arrived a little later than anticipated, but still in time for lunch. Once lunch was over, the group of us convened in Pam's studio to talk about some of the things we've been doing recently. 

Thanks for Pam for opening her home and studio and to everyone for sharing your work and comments. There are more photos and commentary on Lisa Pressman's blog.

Tim, thanks for posting. So glad you were able to be here. I really enjoyed the opportunity to see your work (and Dave's, and Lisa's) and have you all see mine. Looking forward to the next go 'round...

Great post, Tim. Thanks for showing us all what a good time you had with the show and tell. P.S. I like the new look of your blog.

Pam: You're welcome!

Nancy: Thank you! I'm glad that you like the new look and thanks for reading!/commenting. I did have a good time. I don't do it that often, but it's good to have some downtime around other artists away from my studio when I can.
