book signing and art sale

Those who are willing to buy art are essential to those who make it. In the Obama administration, they wonder how to stimulate the economy without growing in greater and greater debt to the Chinese.

The answer, of course is for Americans to buy useful and beautiful art and crafts from from each other. What a great gift buying and giving season this might become! And hand-made things are the gift that keep on giving to community and culture.

Through the making of things we gain in skill and intellect, making our communities rich with greater wisdom. Giving finely crafted objects to others informs them that we are thoughtful, creative, intelligent, environmentally aware, and sensitive to concerns about local development. And of course that we have great taste.

We had a nice time at Lux Weaving Studio this evening, selling beaded works by Eleanor Lux, pottery by Karen Foster, and my own books and boxes.
