Upcoming show at TK Corridor Gallery in Pioneer Square

This is the second of my shows this year, and it opens next week.   I am pleased to note they used one of my pieces for the art on the back of the postcard.    The Gallery is open on Fridays and Saturdays from noon to five so the opening during the Pioneer Square Artwalk may be the most convenient time to see the show and is certainly the only evening time.

Melting glaciers and why you should care

Today's email brought this link to an article about melting glaciers and the effect on global climate.  Besides  rising sea levels, the two biggest impacts are the shifts in the jet stream (you know, the high level air stream movement that keeps thunderstorms moving along rather than dumping all their rain in one place) and the loss of glaciers & snow packs as water reservoirs  for areas where the regular runoff is used for drinking water and hydro-power production.  In the US, that means Alaska, California, and probably many of the Rocky Mountain States.  It's worth reading the article to get a better understanding of why people are saying this is a big deal.
