Sneak Preview of Upcoming Dog Dance Art Show!

I zipped down to Chetek, Wi this afternoon to deliver my completed hooked pieces to the Dog Dance Art Studio and Gallery. You are cordially invited to attend opening night ceremonies and meet  some of the artists.Tomorrow evening May 7th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM wine and Wisconsin made cheese will be served. The art will remain on display through out the coming week. For those who live too far away and can't make it I am devoting my next couple of posts to this show. I took a few photos today as a sneak preview of some of the art. Let me say this " I think I am a little bit out of my league when I saw some of the art. The featured artist is CJ Conner. Take a look at her website and I think you'll understand what I'm saying. www.cjconner.com
