Baltimore ACC show!

I submitted a last minute application to the "New Wave Craft" call for entries at the American Craft Council show in Baltimore 2008 and… I GOT IN!!

Wow. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, but very pleased. I was chosen to participate along with 16 other artists from out of more than 90 applicants. It's a shared space designed and underwritten by the Council on the main floor with the other exhibitors. What an honor. It's amazing to think I once walked the aisles of the ACC Baltimore show as a lowly art student, awed, inspired and completely floored by the talent I was surrounded by… now, seven years after graduating, I'm going to be one of those talents on the floor of the Baltimore convention center! Man, I can't even describe how fantastic that feels. (as well as utterly terrifying) I haven't been back to B'more since I graduated. weird. It will be cool to see it all again.


Here's the dates:
The American Craft Show in Baltimore 2008, Baltimore Convention Center
Friday, February 22 (10 am - 9 pm)
Saturday, February 23 (10 am - 6 pm)
Sunday, February 24 (10 am - 5 pm)

Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to make all that work by then, where I'll stay down there, how I'll survive the anxiety, and all the other millions of details that will need sorting… oh man. No post-holidays resting after all… I guess I asked for it though.
