Sometimes we are busy and sometimes no one shows up. Today was fairly busy as there was a demonstration of a Camera Obscura and a display of the birdhouses that were painted for the Rails to Trails fundraiser.
I didn't make any sales today but did make some contacts for students. And, one never knows who might come back and make a purchase in the future. (Plus I have a tendency to market my classes. I need to work on marketing my jewelry.)
But the thing that stands out from today (and I really need to let this go) is the guy who walked into my room and said "Oh, it's just jewelry. I thought it was art!" Then he left. Grrrr.
This battle has been fought for years (and I thought the battle was over. Guess not!) This guy probably still thinks a sculpture has to be bronze and a painting has to be done in oil. That a drawing is only a means for planning a painting and that water colors are done by little old ladies with nothing better to do. Obviously jewelry, weaving, basketry, etc. can't be art.... they're a craft. If he goes to a museum, he'll have a heart attack. Times have changed.
Okay, I'm done venting. Thanks.
