Boise Open Studio Weekend 2015

For the past several years I have either shared my studio space with artists Nancy Panganiban and Geoff Everts or they have shared theirs with me for the Boise Open Studio Weekend. It's nice to have company and share the experience with good friends.

This weekend was the best and the worst.

It was the best weekend yet as far as weather (beautiful temps and no rain) best as far as number of visitors (251) and best as far as sales.

Why was it the worst? My friend Geoff was not able to be present due to advanced stomach cancer. While Geoff was a private person and preferred to limit those knowing about his illness to family and a few close friends, he was surrounded by loved ones during his treatment.

In his final days Geoff curated the work shown at the 2015 BOSCO event. Many guests marveled at Geoff's creativity and talent on such a beautiful weekend.
