The first ACW See. Say. SHOW session met at Remo Campopiano’s studio in the California Building on June 9. Ten people attended and most shared their work-in-progress which included poetry, painting, sculpture, stand-up comedy, tapestry, collage, 3-D printing, stufties and more. The group decided to keep the format simple with each person sharing their work and engaging those gathered in conversation related to their work. The group agreed they would like to see “Never Look Away” together. On the list for the future. The next 2nd Sunday SSS meeting will be hosted by Jill Stebbins at her Grain Belt meeting space at 1215 Marshall St, NE on July 14 at 12:00 noon. BYOB and Snacks.
