Lately Joan, Leann, and I haven't been able to meet for Wednesday Morning at Joan's due to one or another of us being on the road or being ill or being swamped with work. Today Leann and I met up at Tuscan Cafe for coffee and to get caught up on each other's news -- Leann had a very exciting trip to New York and I went to the opening for the show I am in. It was SO good to see Leann again -- I had been thinking of her a lot and missed her much.
Then we moved on to the Northville Art House where Joan is helping Jeff hang the upcoming show that Jeff is curating. I really love to see the art all over the gallery and spread out. I enjoy seeing the process of it getting onto the walls. I appreciate that Jeff was happy to let me share some sneak previews.
The yarn bombing has all been cleared away.
The "Vote 2012" signs line the sidewalk of the Northville Art House and will be placed around town, too.
Voting precinct-like decorations invite you in.
A feeling of excitement -- what's it all about?

This is just a really early, really small sneak preview of what will be a fantastic show. "Vote for Me!" opens this Friday during Northville's First Friday activities...so much to see and do in Downtown Northville on the first Friday of every month!
Show curated by Jeff Cancelosi
