Mission Gables House Art Show

Wow, what a great show with a great choice of art to purchase. Many thanks to the 32 artists who came and set up in the house and park. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day, visiting with friends, chatting to customers and making new connections.

Mission Gables House underwent a multi-million dollar restoration over several years. The house is shared between the Associates of Redlands Bowl who perpetually fund raise to support the Redlands Bowl summer music festival and the Redlands Community Music Association. It opened last year and although it has been used this was to be the first open public event. We had just 8 weeks to organize the show and it worked. The associates were kind enough to lend chairs, tables and tablecloths for the event. Inside artists were able to set up Friday afternoon and these were just a few of the stalls that I had a chance to photograph. Saturday, Associates ensured the smooth running of the show with snacks and water and covering for artists who needed a quick break.

Once again, many thanks to everyone who participated in the show either as an artist, an Associate of Redlands Bowl, customers for coming out in August heat. A special thanks to 3 sons and their friends who gave up an evening to set up furniture and gave up an afternoon to help artists unload and carry in their work into the house.

August already and a new “To Do” or is it panic stations?!

My new knee is 3 weeks old today

Yup, and I am so much more mobile! The staples … all 30 came out last Tuesday and physio is much easier without the skin pulling around the staples (sorry to gross you out! Please note I’ve spared you all the photos which grossed my sister out!) Physio finally got sorted after more phone callsContinue Reading

Meetup/July Goals
