In the years before the Artist Colony on Marco, a group of artists used to meet for lunch once a month. We did this every month for almost three years, just for the pleasure of having like-minded people to share with. The result was that many of the artists on the island go to know each other. This worked out well and was a big plus once the opportunity for an Artist Colony came along.
Since we lost our rent-free space when a new owner purchased the Esplanade, we're all still working, but not as a unit. I'm really looking forward to breakfast this morning with a group of women artist friends, just to catch up and see what everyone's been working on. I'll try to remember to take a photo to share with you!
