Sunday thoughts

Today at YB we've got a lot going on -lots of visitors and Elizabeth, one of our lovely interns, is packing up artwork from some of our past shows and Stephanie is up front managing some inventory-I decided to take a break from banking land and work on my Sunday blog entry-Things are starting to gear up around here since it's been so nice outside.

Our friend Sam Parker who opened our new location in June of 2008, with his solo work, just had his final thesis show at Georgia State and also just had an opening last night with 2 other local artists-you should set up an appointment with those nice folks at Kibbee Gallery and check out the show! Here's an interview in the loafing for Sam's show.

The next show at Kibbee is on May 1st and is the same night as our next opening with "Disaster Planning" with local artists Steven Dixey, Kenn Twofour & Stenvik Mostrom- walk on over and see work by Kelly Cloninger, Pam Rogers and Julia Kubica called "Sprout".

I got to try my first King of Pops last weekend and it was a dreamy Lemon/Lavendar-he's been setting up on the weekends (12-8) until his shop opens on the corner of North and N. Highland -look for the umbrella-or you can also get them at Irwin Street Market .

For all you crafty/artsy folks out there who are ready to work on their business there is a conference coming up in Seattle this summer-sounds awesome! Somebody wanna buy me a plane ticket out there?! thought so...

It's the Creative Conference of Entrepreneurs
