In 2017 Jacqueline and I met in San Francisco and drove to Vancouver Island, Canada: https://dianesfusedglass.wordpress.com/2017/05/12/san-francisco-may-10-2017/ Shortly after this trip, I had surgery on my right foot, and that ended my 2017 travels.
In January 2018 I took a workshop in Indio, California, with glass artist Paul Messink. My friend/fellow artist Sharon joined me, so she could visit friends in the area who were getting ready to move. Paul mentioned a glass exhibit at the Palm Springs Art Museum, which I immediately dragged Sharon to: https://dianesfusedglass.wordpress.com/2018/06/21/january-2018-indio-california/
In May 2018 I took a quick trip to New York for an event at my old college on Long Island. I reconnected with my roommate from those years plus visited a glass gallery in Manhattan. https://dianesfusedglass.wordpress.com/2018/06/21/may-3-8-2018-new-york/
In June it was back to Palm Springs, for another exhibit at the Palm Springs Art Museum, which has its own glass gallery. This time I had Sharon and another glass artist from our gallery, Eneida, with me: https://dianesfusedglass.wordpress.com/2018/07/22/june-4-palm-springs-california-and-getting-there/0
Our big event in July was Spacefest, our first adventure as vendors.
“We” were my friend Sharon, a metal artist Dante, and me, as “Otherworldly Creations”. I found some people I hadn’t seen since I left Washington, D.C., in 1995. https://dianesfusedglass.wordpress.com/2018/07/22/spacefest-july-6-8-2018-tucson-arizona/
The next big adventure was a trip to Europe, starting in Switzerland, dragging Jacqueline diagonally across France to visit two glass museums, and then four weeks more or less on my own. I visited a glass museum in Denmark and another in Germany, taking photos for an article which appeared in 2019. I met a friend from home, Gertrud, and we cruised down the Mosel and visited a potato pancake festival, which was the focus of another article. In all, I was in Europe 6 weeks in 2018: https://dianesfusedglass.wordpress.com/2018/07/22/switzerland-july-17-22-2018/
