Meet Laverne

Born in 1925 in Milwaukee. Mother dies when she was 4. Father dies when she was 13. Raised her younger sister, Shirley.

Played center field for the Milwaukee women’s baseball team during WWII. 300 bowler. Amazing golfer. JC Penny’s first female computer engineer.

“I’m 84 years old and had a great life. My girlfriends are sitting on the couch crying over regrets, watching the news and waiting to die. I lived without regrets. I tried everything I wanted to do.”

Her husband Leo in a sidebar conversation smiled and said: “I grew up in family owned bar and bowling alley in Thorpe. It took me 13 years to finally out-bowl her.”

Artstreet Art Fair in Green Bay, August 22 – 24

Come see me in Booth 198.

Next weekend I will be at the Artstreet art fair in Green Bay. This is a wonderful opportunity to catch some great art and a meal. Hopefully, you can make it. I will be in Booth 198.

Also, if you are going to be in the area please stop and eat at the Mustardseed Cafe. The family have been wonderful patrons of my work but more importantly I had one of the best breakfasts anywhere EVER at their restaurant in Green Bay.

Powderhorn Art Fair in Minneapolis

paf-2014-poster-ms

First of all, next year, there is no way we are doing an art show every weekend between April and September. NO WAY! We are exhausted.

I’m sorry we haven’t been able to post much this year. Not even pictures but with only five shows left this season I wanted to make a moment and let you know of one close to home in Minneapolis.

The Powderhorn Art Fair is this weekend. Of the three major art shows in Minneapolis this weekend –¬†Uptown, Loring Park and Powderhorn, I like the cool grassy, tree-lined park overlooking the lake of Powderhorn best.

Especially if it is as hot as they are predicting this weekend.

I will be in Booth 102 overlooking the lake and, hopefully, under a tree. Come see me.

Cheers,

Chrissy
