It’s that time of year again! Monument, CO 2013 Art Hop season begins this Thursday, May 16, 2013. The official time for Art Hop is 5 – 8:00 PM. In Monument, Art Hop is on the third Thursday of the month, starting in May and running through September.
There are so many cool things about Art Hop. Visiting the local merchants, seeing what’s new, meeting with artists at different locations where their works are represented, food, drink, good conversations, running in to friends and catching up. It’s just a very nice community event to socialize and enjoy an evening out.
This year, I will be at Marylee Resig’s Santa Fe Trail Jewelry with my good friend and fellow artist Nancy Bonig. Marylee carries Nancy’s work and mine. Not only will Nancy & I discuss our respective work, but we look forward to talking about this year’s Front Range Open Studio Tours. There will be new artists joining us this year, like my friends Ginny & Frank Mailo of Monument Moon Studios. I’m excited about the prospects of expanding our network of friends on the tour, along with demonstrating some of the techniques we use in creating our artwork.
I will have some of my new works, such as Express Yourself (with a little touch of Colorado), in addition to some of my latest Treescapes and Ginkgo leaf works.

Nancy always has the most beautiful glass works, so I can’t wait to see what she may bring!
Right now the weather forecast is GREAT for this Thursday evening, so why not make plans to have a wonderful evening out and just enjoy the atmosphere in Monument?
Hope to see you there.
Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
