I wanted to share the link for the Alchemy: from Dust to Form show that Nan
Smith and Kathy King juried for the Harn Museum in Gainesville. It's up now
and will be up until Sept. The catalog is lovely, but no match for seeing
the work in person. If you're driving through, it's a good stop. Museum
admission is FREE during regular hours.

There's also a private reception Sunday night before NCECA for people
attending the UF Pre-Conference events with Nan Smith, Kathy King, and Kevi=
