Mahogany Returns!

Hi! I'm back!

Having taken such a long detour from my Project 365, I won't be getting back to that right away. So what have I been doing all these months? I've been working as a hostess at a hip restaurant in the Dilworth neighbourhood of Charlotte (300 East), making new friends, enjoying the arts & entertainment that Charlotte has to offer, and, of course, taking lots of photographs.

Over the course of the last few months, I've enjoyed art sales (Carolina Claymatters Pottery Festival - Spring Barn Sale in May, May All Arts Market at the Neighborhood Theatre in NoDa, Terra4m Summer Art Sale in June), art exhibits (The Bechtler Museum, Mint Hill Arts), the Clayworks Open House in August, music (Ramblin' Man Piano Tour for Charlotte Chamber Music in August, Tosco Music Party this past weekend), and more with friends & family. Charlotte really does have a lot to offer once you know where to look!

If you haven't seen the installation of Niki de Saint Phalle's artwork in the "Creation of a New Mythology" exhibit yet ( you should visit The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and The Green (across from the Bechtler) to see it before the end of the month, as the collection will only be in Charlotte through 3 October.

With that, I leave you with my photo of "La Cabeza Ou Tête de Mort (Grande)" by Niki de Saint Phalle, taken on The Green this April.
