The lovely and talented Melissa Jay Craig is featured in the show Respite, at the Vespine Gallery in Chicago. Melissa spent the spring here with us at the workshop coaxing pulp into dazzling shapes and colors. She writes about her experience at the workshop, and at two other residencies she took part in this past summer at Ragdale & I-Park, on her Blahhg – melissajaycraig.wordpress.com/. There will be an opening reception for Respite tonight from 7 – 10pm. If you go, please send her our greetings!
