I got home from the opening reception an hour ago, giving me a little time to wind down from this busy day.
CLU Art Department have a booth at the Thousand Oaks Art Festival taking place over the weekend. It’s been really pleasant to spend the day with my colleagues there, meeting people who have an interest in the University’s art programming.Â
I left to get ready for the opening at about five, and hoped to head for the pub for a pint at about quarter to seven, but people started arriving for the event as I was trying to get away. I prefer to arrive about thirty minutes late for receptions as a rule, otherwise you can wait uncomfortably for the first people to show up. In this instance there was a steady stream of old friends, colleagues, students and fellow travelers. It was completely delightful to see a few people who I haven’t seen for ages and I had a lovely time explaining things and chatting with everyone. Thanks for coming! Cameron took some pictures, so I hope he’ll let me use some here.
