Double Trouble

It's autumn, sunny and gloriously colorful in Southwest Colorado, climbers are out, leaves are rustling and putting on a prismatic show of time.  I'm running between soup on the stove, walks in the woods, galleries and the studio!

Please join us this Friday, October 21 from 5-7pm at the Durango Arts Center for the opening of Double Trouble: the work of Dan Groth and Crystal Hartman exhibiting through December in Durango Colorado.   We've pieces together a collection of paintings, collage and illustrations to share stories of inspiration, growth, communication and the humanity of it! And I am so, so excited to share.

Gone to the Bees

I'm so excited to share this blog post from Willowtail Springs Nature Preserve and Education Center on our recent studies of Pollination, Pollinators and specifically Honey Bees!  A beautifully told story complete with bibliography (a great list of articles and books to begin your own studies on bees and honey and our relationships with each other) Written by Merritt Winkler.
