I look forward to the Archon convention in St. Louis every year, and this year is especially exciting: they have a new location. I checked it out a couple of weeks ago, and it looks fabulous. They are still spread out a bit with activities in two separate hotels and the attached convention center, but it’s very walkable (even for a gimp like me). There are also a number of restaurants on site and plenty of parking.
I’ll have art in the show, both on display and in the print shop. Remember: bid high, bid often!
The pocket program is online, and a big thank you to my book club buddy Barry for pointing out that I will be doing four sessions, not just the three I knew about.
- 5:00 PM – Thumbprint Drawings (Children’s Programming) "Well Picasso, What do you see?" /Zermatt
- 2:40 PM – Small Wonders – Making and collecting tiny works of art in the ACEO format. /Lugano

This would be a really good weekend to get out of town.
Unfortunately, I always forget about Archon and by the time I remember, the place is sold out.

They still had rooms available at the Sheraton Plaza Westport last week. There are a couple of other hotels nearby, but you’d have to drive over and back from them.

I would love to get back there sometime, but the first weekend of October has so many things happening year after year.
