Lots of things conspired to keep me inside in March and April including nursing duties for my dear husband, lots of cold weather, an actual cold which is still plaguing me. So as a one time additional promotion from SDVAN, here is a preview of the May events. I am celebrating a big birthday in May and I hope to see some of these exhibitions if health and pollen from May flowers permits. Happy Mother's Day to all of us who are mothers to the arts in San Diego.
Don't forget to check out our calendar of events for a large selections of workshop and our RAW column to read what's what in the arts including all the latest opportunities.
