First Thursday

Let's start here and see art, and if people want to eat/drink after, that's great. This is an often-ignored museum, but one of the only Contemporary Craft Museums in the nation.

Please get a good gander and my organizer profile so you can recognize me. I guess we can start doing nametags. I'll bring some.

I'd love for people to come back and report some positive experiences; with people, food or the venue(s).

See you soon one way or another!

    The rain! The traffic! OOh wow. Thanks to those who joined, had a lot of fun getting to know you, everyone, I think the Museum of Contemporary Craft is a great venue to start off First Thursday in for October and I'll set that up. I'll make it start at 7p so no one has to pay for parking. :) See ya next time.

    Hi all! So glad we have 20 people showing up! So good. I'm going to get nametags so we can be more easily recognized. Also, the gift shop is not *that* big, so we'll be shoving off to explore Museum of Contemporary craft by 6:45. If a few want to linger in the gift shop, that's fine. I can keep everyone posted as to our whereabouts in this forum, so check back if you're late.
    The point of the meetup is to meet people that seem fun, just start chatting and make connections!! NOTE: It is VERY HARD to do a full gallery hop with 20 people and the group will start to disintegrate. That's okay. Just find people you'd like to spend the evening with and come back here with comments and connect to others who were there that you might not have had a chance to talk with. I will likely end up at Ping by 8pm at Couch/4th. If others agree on a location to reconvene later, that's fine, but there is no formal meetup after the initial gift shop meet/greet. Ok?

    Drat! I just found out that I have a 5:00 appointment north of Vancouver.
    I don't know if I can get to the museum by 6:30. Is there a number that I can text (or call) so I can catch up with the group?

    I've decided to indie publish my children's book on conservation, written in anapestic tetrameter. Are there any illustrators of children's books going to be in attendance? Any graphic design artists? Barbara

      I've done a little illustration, old school, camera ready gouache or other water media. We should talk.

    Hey folks, I have been to three first thursday meetups for this group and have had a difficult time finding anyone at the Davis Street Tavern, particularly since I haven't met too many people in the group so I don't recognize their faces and no one at the bar knew what I was talking about. Is there a better way we can coordinate this event? Perhaps have a signifying hankerchief or something?

    Anyway, I will be wandering around next 1st thursday in front of the bar at 6:30 and I will be the tallest man on the street so flag me down. Also remeber that most galleries shut down 8-9 on that night. Generally I think it is best to wander first and chat afterward so I will offering my touring services to anybody interested.
