Fateful Meeting at the Pence

The Scene: Downtown Davis on a Saturday afternoon. We had just raided the "money machine," it was a lovely spring day, and I needed to use the restroom. "Oh Mom!" my daughter kvetched, "really?" "Really."

We headed despite complaint into the nearby Pence Gallery where I ran into my artist friend Chris Beers. "Hey, Hannah, long time, no see, what's up?" Now I couldn't just rush past him to the bathroom, so I told him about my upcoming exhibit at the USE Credit Union  and asked his advice on e-mail announcements.

As a designer for the Pence, he has a lot of experience. As he explained the details, he suddenly said "Why don't I make one for you? If you like it, then you can hire me next time." A moment of grace I couldn't turn down.

You can see his lovely announcement above with all the details about my show. I'll be sharing some more about the title of the show "Striking A Balance" in my next two posts.


  1. it's delightful design...what an angel/friend!!
    all best with 'striking a balance'...i love that title.

  2. Agreed, great bathroom break! Lovely announcement! Facebook it too!!!!

  3. Serendipity! Don't you love it? Hope the exhibit goes equally wonderfully!

  4. Serendipity--I look for it all around me. When I find it, I feel like a character in a Jane Austen novel because I catch myself thinking: "what a most felicitous meeting that was!

    Lynn, Thanks, I will post it on Facebook, once I e-mail the list to my e-mail contact list.

  5. I have been enjoying the benefits of friendship this entire week...
