Text Messages

Friday night was the opening for the Treasure Valley Artists Alliance's Text Messages show.  For those of you who couldn't make it, I took a few pictures (without flash).  But you'll want to see it in person.  It is kind of like a "word search" to find the text in some of the pieces.

 In the picture below, you can see how I framed my piece Two Roads Diverged in a Yellow Wood.  I'm not sure how many people really "got" the piece if they were not familiar with Robert Frost's poem, The Road Not Taken.

Shirley and Anne always do a wonderful job with the food table. This time Shirley made flowers from newspaper.  Anne had also decoupaged some branches with newspaper and had them in a vase that looked very nice.  (I didn't get a picture of it.)  Then, they had spelled out messages all around the table.

I donated Scrabble Cheez-its to the cause and others had made cookies with messages on them.   There were also fortune cookies among other yummy items.

The show will be at the BSU Public Radio Offices through April 5th (open weekdays).

Lisa, thanks for the commentary as I missed the opening. The pieces I saw before they went up looked fabulous!
