a wonderful group of fun, witty, and enthusiastic

In the afternoon of the last day of the Summit, we took a short trip to visit the North Bank Gallery in Vancouver, WA. Here are a few photos for you.



Charles Morgan explaining some details of his print.

On Friday, August 18, Richard Steiner & his lovely wife came to the Summit and gave us all a lesson in how to properly tie a baren.

Here's a few snaps of the action yesterday - The woman in blue is the
curator of prints and drawings at the museum, the second woman is our
lovely little docent, who did not misspeak too many times, and no one
jumped on her because we are civilized you know! And then we're all at
the brew pub drinking to that age old profession: printmaker!

Hi Everyone!

I've managed to make it to Sharri's for 2 of the 4 days so far - everyone is SO busy visiting, sharing, and just plain having fun - they don't have much time to post on the Baren Blog. I spent yesterday visiting, sharing, & having fun - but I managed to remember to take some photos.

We wish all of you were here with us, but we are thinking of you, so you are here in our thoughts. I just wish you had sound with these pictures. There's a lot of laughing going on!
