Catalog Update!

You all must think we dropped off the face of the earth! Here's a confession. Creating From the Inside Out took 2 years and frankly, when the show came down and everything was packed up to send back to the artists, I felt I deserved a little rest. (Elizabeth doesn't get any rest--she's a middle school art teacher with a demanding schedule to contend with plus students (probably) jumping out of their skins in anticipation of the coming holidays.) But I assure you that the catalog is well underway! Elizabeth and I have consulted several times and will continue to do so. 

It took awhile, but we wrote one heck of an intro. We've got gorgeous photos. Sometimes I get caught up in just staring at them, conjuring memories of the exhibition. Blurb is easy to work with, but once in a while I hit a little snag. For example, last evening, suddenly any picture I tried to upload was declared corrupt. So all was saved and the program was shut down to rest. Then everything began working like a charm again and, for those who know me well, I worked LONG into the wee hours.

This morning, however was a different story. When I tried to find the book file and open it, it wasn't where it was supposed to be. And when I did find it, several pages that were created last night were gone. GRRRR! (I know what you are thinking!  I did SAVE it!)  Hopefully it won't take too long to bring it up to date again. Wish me lots of luck! I hope the catalog can be finished soon!

Peace and Best wishes to all of you!

  2. The catalog is on temporary hold until I can get my other ducks in a row. Lots of shows this fall to contend with and also computer problems where the catalog is being designed. But it WILL be finished and I will shout the announcement from the rooftops and bells will ring!
