Will I see you on Thursday? The countdown is on for opening night of the All Ceramics Exhibition (ACE) 2013, this Thursday, October 24th at Doongalik Studios, Village Road.

My 7 Stages of ACE:

Stage 1: Euphoria! You've been accepted to show pieces alongside amazingly talented ceramic artists!  

Stage 2: Panic! You've been accepted to show pieces alongside amazingly talented ceramic artists!

Stage 3: Creative Overload.  A floodgate of ideas scream for your attention, each one seemingly more flamboyant than the other.

Stage 4: Creative Reality Check. Ideas are quickly narrowed down as technical aspects of production determine which flamboyant pieces will make the cut.

Stage 5: Kiln Karma. Waiting, watching, praying that the kiln will be your friend just this one... more... time.

Stage 6: Bag Lady and Bag Lady Junior. Pieces fired and delivered with the help of a trooper of a daughter, a very patient Bahamasair flight attendant, and nine kind and merciful aisle passengers who said nothing despite all of the jostling from 2 passengers with way too many carry on bags!

Stage 7: Mix and Mingle! Can't wait to spend some time with newfound fellow artists and art lovers from all walks of life right here in Paradise! Hope to see you on Thursday!
