We've had a busy month with our gallery opening and other projects we'll tell you about.
We have a seminar update and some wonderful stories and pictures for you plus a new tangle variant.
(If you have trouble seeing the images in your email, you can see an archive of this and other newsletters here.)
We had so much fun. It's a wonderful space and we're so grateful to Alternatives for all their help.
Here's a few pix of our friends enjoying Zentangles, conversation, refreshments, watching our DVD and listening to flute music.
Kids of all ages contributed to collaberative Zentangles.
Maria created a special series of Zentangles for this gallery opening using Conti crayon, chalk, pen and pencil on Lokta paper from Nepal.
We will be creating a special page on our website so you can see the whole exhibit, but for now, here are a couple of detail shots.
All gallery pieces (not yet sold) will also be available for purchase online.
The exhibit will be open through November. If you're planning to stop by, let us know and if we can, we'll give you a tour.

Michelle May invited us to participate in Worcester's first annual Halloween Cirque du Noir, a fundraiser at an area restaurant to benefit the Worcester County Foodbank. Along with a large assortment of donated art, we joined four other artists to create some "fusion" art as part of the evening's events.
With well over a hundred people watching, all six of us began at blank easels. After eight minutes, we rotated six times. Then we each did a five minute rotation. It was a great new experience for everyone.
All donated artwork and the fusion pieces were auctioned and 100% went to the foodbank. It was a great success. Here's a sample of what they they looked like.
If you've seen our Zentangle DVD, you've seen pokeroot in action. With a small change, we have a tangle that's perfect for autumn.
