There are nine artists associated with the show, eight of whom are CZTs. We have been friends for several years, visited each other's homes, taught each other innovative ways to teach and tangle, admired each other's talents, and this is the first time our work has been collected in one place. Needless to say, it was energizing and inspiring to be able to soak it all in.

With Zentangle® inspired outfits, we blended into our artwork.
The weather was picturesque, and by mid evening, the Art House was packed with friends, family, students, and Zentangle enthusiasts.
While the show was about our artwork, it was also an opportunity to gather with people we love.
|My husband, Lou, and three of our children were able to come: Isabella, Catherine, and Louie|
|My dear friends: Stephannie, Karen, Kathy, and Karen|
The Art House is an older home converted into a gallery/studio. Art work is hung from wood molding just below the ceiling on brass rods.
Below are more photos of the gathering and of our artwork. Enjoy the tour ~

The piece pictured above on the far left was a gift from Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Earlier in the month, I had sent them an announcement about the show and they generously sent this signed print along with another poster that we hung at the entrance.
