The art exhibit opening at the Terrace Art Gallery was a huge success. We had what appeared to be about 200 people show up for the opening, with people from as far away as Hazelton showing up to meet the artists. I met people that I haven’t seen in years there, including a friend that I knew since I was ten years old that I haven’t seen in years and a lady whose portrait I drew in Gitsegeukla at a church meeting in 2007. I think that tonight has been a fulfillment of my best expectations, with an offer coming in to connect me up with a print maker in Victoria. Making reproductions is a key part of my business plan that I handed in on the aboriginal BEST entrepreneurship deadline today. It has been a very busy week that all came to a head this evening. My wife and I are going to watch a movie and go to bed. Stay tuned for more on the exhibit opening in a couple of days.

Geo Mckay, a carver from Terrace, BC, came in and did a presentation for the entrepreneur’s workshop today.  Geo is part owner of the House of Carvers in Terrace.  Geo has been carving for 45 years.  Geo has a manner about him that is very straight forward.  We learned a lot about the business of carving, from marketing to business relationships to payment options.
