First off, my Sailor Skirt just made the front page of etsy today!
Secondly, I am off to Calgary today to put a bunch of shirts I've printed in to The Art Gallery of Calgary's SHOP. This is a big step for me and I feel honored to have my designs amoung other amazingly talented artists and craftspeople in the retail space. Check it out here: http://www.artgallerycalgary.org/galleryshop/index.htm
I hope everyone is enjoying spring (now we just need the nice weather back in Alberta)!

Those of you who are far away can still check out my show (I don't know how good I am at answering questions towards the end...hehe).

I've definitely had my share of the bad years in my life. Folks, I have tested the fates many a time in ways one maybe shouldn't. This year, however, feels like it's going to be an exciting and positive one.
First off, I have just confirmed a month long art exhibit during the month of March at a great gallery here called Gallery IS. I'm planning on doing some major screen printed art and showing some of my printed clothing designs. Title of the show: "Fashion Becomes Art : Screen Prints and Clothing by Valerie Turbak". The gears are definitely turning inside my brain and now it's just time to get cracking.
Secondly, I have partnered up with an awesome person and friend to do some touring over the summer to various events, shows and music festivals to "hawk our wares" as someone I know might say. This has been a dream of mine for a long time and I have finally found someone to go on this adventure with. I can't wait to collaborate, travel and meet new people this summer. In case you didn't know, I own a green 1975 VW campervan that will hit the road in style.
Until next time, happy creating to everyone!
