Four days and counting down . . . The Waterfowl Festival opens with a gala invitation only reception on Thursday evening for benefactors and badge holders to have a first crack at all the wonderful art on display. Public hours begin on Friday morning and run through 4 PM on Sunday afternoon. Easton is a pleasant drive from many of the major mid-coast cities in the DC area, so why not take a break this weekend and enjoy some good food, great entertainment on the streets of historic Easton, MD and check out the sculpture, fine art, crafts, carvings and more scattered throughout town. Almost everything to see is within walking distance and the several outer venues are easily reached by fast and convenient free bus service throughout the weekend. And now, time for me to start gathering up all the new works I've done for the show and get things ready for the trip across the Bay later this coming week. See you there!
