Today is the second annual Art Exchange at my house, and I am very excited. We did it for the first time last November, and it was the most art fun I have ever had. I am expecting 32 artists today. They all bring something to eat and something to drink. They also bring art that they wish to not have in their studio anymore. It may be something they just aren't crazy about, something they haven't been able to sell, or there is some other reason they don't want to see it anymore. In exchange they go home with someone else's work that they love and that is new to them. Some people bring one thing and some may bring a dozen. You just bring what you want to give away and don't expect to go home with exactly the same number you brought. We draw numbers and start to pick out what we want and keep going until everything is gone. Last year everyone went home with at least 5 pieces of art. I bet it will be just as much fun this year. I will let you know how it goes.
