Update for Friday January 22, 2010

Happy Friday!

I have moved my art studio to my home and am really excited about it! I can't wait to hold my own workshops from my home studio. See below for those workshops.

My 2010 Guest Artist workshops are coming together. The Guest Artist Workshops will still be held at the Bellvue Store as we love the country peace and beauty it provides. I will be posting these workshops on the website next week!

The space my shop has been in at the Bellvue store on the east side of the building is available to rent as of Feb 1st. It is a living space or will make for a wonderful art studio for one or more artists.

CoCOA Lecture Series
Local Arts Attorney to Speak on Copyright Law

The single most important intersection of creativity, business, and law for artists is copyright, yet many people in the creative industry have only a passing knowledge or worse, a mistaken understanding of the rules that govern the very ownership of their creative product.

As part of the Colorado Coalition of Artists Lecture series, local author, artist, designer, and intellectual property attorney Kevin Houchin will entertain and inform the group with a presentation on this important subject.

Invest a little time in yourself and your business. It won't be boring, and it just might save you thousands of dollars and heart-ache!

Find out more about Kevin at or @kevinhouchin on Twitter.

Kevin will be speaking at the PRAC Gallery, located on the NE corner of College & Willow on Wed. Feb 10 from 7-9 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. For more information contact CoCOA at 970-221-3019 or

40% Off Everything for The New Year

Bring On The New Year!
What a transition 2009 was!
For Me Personally and for The Artists' Nook......
Personally: The end of my 19 year marriage, working through the hurt to discover myself again, renewing my faith and relationship with Jesus, and now finding a wonderful new relationship with an amazing guy!
For The Artists' Nook: Figuring out what are the important features of The Artists' Nook that drives my passion, inspires and nurtures others......
and what is taking my time, keeping me from that which I am passionate about.....
Which brings me to how The Artists' Nook will be in 2010
The Artists' Nook will focus on workshops with Nationally Known Traveling Guest Artists as I have been doing for 10 years and workshops with Christine (myself)
The workshops will be held at the Bellvue Store retreat location.
The Artists' Nook will be getting rid of all product inventory (See Sale info below)
Christine will be moving her art studio to her home and will focus on creating more art! Wow, what a concept!
I will no longer be in the space on the West side of the Bellvue store (saving myself some $$$ that way) as of Feb 1st.
The workshops will be held on the East side of the Bellvue store as usual
