What a month!!! If one show is not enough......how about FOUR! The month started out with the Miami Watercolor Society 36th Annual Fall Exhibition which is still underway.(http://www.miamiwatercolor.org/exhibitions.html). It is always an honor to be juried into this show because there is great talent in that group. A week later it was the intake for the Grove House Artists Gallery (http://www.grovehouseartists.net/) . Tonight is the opening reception for this show in conjunction with the Coconut Grove Art Stroll. Our gallery is right on the promenade where there is art on the sidewalks, live music, restaurants samplings and free drinks. All galleries come to life during art stroll, not to mention the Commodore Plaza block party. Next week, November 14th and 15th, is the Mad Hatter Festival in Coconut Grove (http://www.madhatterfestival.com/). What a fun weekend with lots of art, music, food and, of course, the crazy hats! That only leaves me enough time to take off my crazy hat, put on the sunscreen and head out to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden for the Ramble (.http://www.fairchildgarden.org/Events/?date=2009-11&eventid=356) . After all of this, I need to have enough energy to get ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I still would not change a thing......LIFE IS GOOD!!
