It’s been a busy fulfilling first quarter with lots of successes. I have been laying the groundwork for this project over the last few months, and would like to thank you for all your support. The Hideaway made many great achievements in February and March. Starting with an interview during the performance Bitter/Sweet: The Artist at Work airing on the “KC Currents” show on KCUR 89.3FM. Charles Ferruzza, of The Pitch Weekly, also wrote a very helpful and informative article, introducing the Hideaway Project to our community.
To top it off in March, I got my first kiln and started to fire my own pots. A few weeks later, I acquired a wheel and threw for the first time ever. So I will be excited to introduce a new series of clay pots next month. I really enjoy the process and its meditative qualities. Again my heart felt thanks for all the great support.

The Hideaway presented its first event today, Bitter/Sweet “The Artist at Work” I chose to prepare Morg Tanoori and Morg Fessenjan as the main entrée as they are both dishes that many Iranian families prepare for their guests. We had a great night! The dialogue was encouraging, as the patrons got to know each other while enjoying a four-course meal. I got good feedback and a chance to explain how this project works, The Hideaway facilitates The Artist Sustainability Project, it is my hope to build a network of sustainable studios that allow artists a pedestal to stand on. In these recession times, “The Artist at Work” is my effort to reinvent modes of survival; drawing attention to the way we make ends meet, while we pursue our passion.
