I gather artists together with instructors, students, and free time so that they may discover new things about art and themselves. Focus on Fiber Retreat and workshops is in it's 14th year and is popular with instructors as this is a time when they can play and work on new projects. There are commuter and resident spaces...enough for 30 or so artists in a beautiful woodland setting near the ocean. By the end of the 10 days, I've created a wonderful collection of happy and refreshed artists.

I also curate exhibitions for Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach, FL. Artists of all media are welcome to have solo or group exhibitions in the Rose Room Gallery which changes monthly.  Up to 2500 visitors to the Auditorium spend part of their evenings in the Rose Room and sales are very possible.
