Well...10 of this year's 12 chairs are finished and now displayed around our community and they look fantastic! I'm always so excited to see the final projects and thrilled that we have such an huge talent pool in and around Airdrie. Can't wait to see the final chairs.
Plus it was such a treat to be at Empty Bowls on Saturday, to hear the feedback not only from viewers but also from the artists. I find it interesting that each chair has its audience, those people who love it very much for different reasons, and yet artists often question the value of their contribution. And I have to say that each and every chair is wonderful.
You'll find the Dia de los Muerta at Brewsters, Haida Blue Jay at Good Earth Cafe, Birch at Genesis Place, Crown at McArthurs Fine Furniture, Dragonfly at Home Hardware, Crows Nest Pass at Scotiabank Main, Calgary Flames at City Hall, Tropical Flowers at Genesis Place, Dragon at the Library and Abstract at Cam Clark Ford with an Airdrie and Stone Throne chairs yet to come. I always enjoy hearing how and why different people connect to different images. And I think the chairs just keep getting better and better, which is really hard to do because they have always been amazing. There is so much more in store over the next few months but at least I can rest a little before moving on to the next step. Whew!
