Report from Arrowmont--Sunday

Post by Jeannine » Tue, 09 Sep 1997 04:00:00



Two hundred clay nuts arrived safe, sound and tired.  Registration was
mercifully brief and dinner was great.  You have to understand that I'm an
easily awed newbie...right behind me in the dinner line were Pier Voulkos
and Dan Peters.  While eating, I spotted Kathleen Dustin.  Later I was
mentally admiring a pendant, then realized I was looking at Kathy Amt.  Nan
Roche and Lindly Haunani arrived while I was indulging my sickening habit
(as per Peg Poly).

The juried exhibit is truly astounding!!!  Everyone who attended the
opening reception was asked to vote for:  best beads, best sculpture, best
use of color and best new direction.  I felt about as qualified to do that
as my cats are!!!!!

Steven Ford and Jeanne Sturdevant have done a fantastic job, as has
Arrowmont.  If you ever get a chance to hear Rob Pulleyn of Lark Books
speak, DO IT!  I just wanted to unpack and go to bed, but figured I'd check
him out and leave if I was bored.  Instead, I laughed my head off!!  But he
is also somewhat profound through the humor, with the message that if it's
not fun, don't do it.  Also that it's perfectly OK to use pc as a stepping
stone to another medium.  If it no longer works for you, or fulfills you,
go on without a backward glance.

Sorry, Peg, no sordid details yet, but Canebake arrived today, so that may
change.  Everyone's too tired to get crazy--we're walking around with
trusses under our eyes to hold up the bags.  Lynne Wardrop has a great
story that I am calling the "Arrowmont K-Y Jelly Caper".  I told her I'd
loan her the computer so she can post it--I don't want the e-mail that it's
likely to produce!!!!  I'll try to catch up with her tomorrow so it will go
out when I sent tomorrow night's report (Friday morning).  I will let the
title tickle and titillate you until you get the details.  I promise you
won't be disappointed!!!
