SURPRISE!! Yesterday afternoon I went to The Gallery Store at The Memorial Art Gallery to be interviewed!! The piece is to promote The Fine Craft Show this weekend. I did my hair, my make up, and sported my new favorite dress (unlike what I am wearing while watching the tv spot, LOL). I stopped by my sister's, who lives about 2 blocks away from the gallery, to make sure I looked the part. I brought a bunch of my latest designs and went from there.
I was so nervous. More nervous than when I demo-ed for PBS's Beads Baubles and Jewels. I can show how to make a piece of jewelry no problem, but try to articulate on the fly about my work had me sweating bullets. Of all the things they asked me and the things I answered, I am surprised that this is the sound bite they used, but that is okay. At least I didn't "um" during this part.
YNN 9 News is our local cable new channel so this little segment will run over and over and over again all day!! I am honored to have been asked to be the artist representing the show. I can't wait for the preview party tomorrow night!! But until then, I have loads of work to do today. Everything needs to be priced, polished, and packaged, the van needs cleaning and loading up of my display, and I need to wash all the table linens I use for the booth. I better get to work!!
Thanks for sharing my 15seconds of fame with me. And in case you are wondering, this is the piece I am wearing in the interview... ::Chandelier::
