Here's the scoop on the upcoming Audubon Show at Mouse House:

In conjunction with the Columbia Festival of Arts, the Elmwood Park Tour of Homes, and in celebration of its twentieth anniversary, MOUSE HOUSE, Inc. is please to present more than twenty-three conservation-framed, original 8vo hand-colored AUDUBON lithographs dating from 1840-71. The exhibit opens on Thursday, April 26 and continues through May 12, 2007 at 2123 Park Street in the historic, downtown Elmwood Park neighborhood. An evening reception is scheduled for Thursday, May 3 from 5:00 until 8:30 PM. Among the birds includes are the Cliff Swallow, Song Finch, Henslow's Bunting, Tell-tale Snipe, Bank Swallow, Sooty Tern, Clarke's Nutcracker, Solitary Vireo, Hudson's Bay Titmouse, Wood Pewee Flycatcher, and several attractive warblers. Mouse House, Inc. also has other antiquarian prints; decorative, framed mirrors, and the fiber/mixed media art by Susan Lenz.

Steve and I are quite excited. This is truly a busy time of year. This week is Artista Vista, an annual art opening that includes my studio, the Dining With Friends charity fund-raiser, and all the Audubons must be hung and ready! The Columbia Festival of Arts is including Mouse House on its free art experience bus tours on May 1 and 2. Then, we host the Audubon reception. The day after the reception, Steve leaves for Norfolk, Virginia to see Mathias and Birmingham Royal Ballet perform The Sleeping Beauty as part of the Virginia Festival of Arts. I have OPEN STUDIO that Saturday and Sunday....and Alex will run Mouse House that Saturday during the Elmwood Tour of Homes.

Lots of work....but quite exciting!
