Time Consumed!

Though Jeff's show project gutenberg project continues, and people do come by to see it, my time has been consumed with saving the building!
It was time to attack stucco repair, before winter heaved more off. As is the usual nature of stucco repair, issues were revealed and the repair quickly doubled in scope and price. There was rotting along the foundation line...now fixed. Phew! It could have been so bad! Really bad!!! But Donnelly Stucco found it in time.

Lots of news here!

Art Books for sale, among other things!

Big Annual Book Sale
A load of Art Books for Sale

Corcoran Neighborhood, is pleased to present the 8th Annual Book Sale, October 15, 9am-4pm,at the Neighborhood Office, at the corner of Cedar Ave and 35th St, South Minneapolis.

Every Fall, the Corcoran Neighborhood puts on this one day sale, with refreshments, to raise money to support the neighborhood organization and especially the expenses associated with the Lutheran Volunteer Corps year-long volunteer position.

I have donated 7 boxes of art books to the sale this year! There are some real plum finds in the lots...some rare books, some odd books, contemporary art criticism, exhibition catalogs, graphic design, artist monographs, art history, and a large group of books on ceramics.

So why have I donated so many books?
When I lived in Michigan, the library system was weak, with inter-library loan largely unavailable. In order to continue my lifelong learning, I had to BUY the books I needed. By comparison I now live in library heaven. So, I am moving books out to make room for more! And to make room for my retirement business: Sue's Luxury Fibers.

This is What Retirement Almost Looks Like

Susan Hensel Gallery will soon change its footprint in the neighborhood. The month in month out exhibition schedule is nearing its end with the current show. Monday hours will continue, but the space will become my working studio. Come in on any Monday to see what I am up to. I may be up to my elbows in paint and charcoal.

On Mondays you can see my work in process or you can come shop Sue's Luxury Fibers for yarn and materials for spinning, dyeing, weaving, knitting and felting.

In March, 2012, the show Reader's Art will return for the 12th year! I am committed to keeping that show alive and will continue presenting in this space for the forseeable future.
