To Barbara P in Isaquah - I'm in Washington State, too, and I feel the same
way about the "polarity" - we might as well be on the South and North poles!

I've lived here a long time and saw the history of printmaking orgs -
sometimes very close up. In Seattle we have the Seattle Print Arts, and I
was a member awhile and went to some meetings. They were nice, and evolved
into some pleasant evening "salons".

But, maybe I'm like you - not a "groupie". But I do love people and I've
found a salon which works for me. It just doesn't focus on prints and other
media arts unfortunately (or, maybe fortunately?).

Someday, we'll meet. I'll keep an eye out for you at Daniel Smith.

- Bill

The first set of prints for Exchange #22 have arrived in Lexington, KY ....they traveled all the way from Australia and belong to Jan Telfer. I have peeked at them and they are flawless.

For the others.... there are now 36 days to Delivery Day, November 1, 2004.
