This afternoon we went to Overjarva Gard, a small farm outside of Stockholm that is home to Karin Eriksson's studio and her boutique, Manos. Camilla and Elisabeth are showing new work from Studio Violet in the Re-Used show. It was the perfect place to spend the first of May. I took plenty of photos of Manos and the show, but I'll let Camilla and Elisabeth be the first to post their photos of the exhibition when they return home tomorrow. I'm putting together a video of their preparation for the show, so expect that in the next week or so.
It has been a real pleasure to meet my Swedish blog friends in person: Camilla, Elisabeth, Sandra and Karin are all as friendly, sincere and talented as you'd imagine from reading their blogs and viewing their pictures. I hope we can return their hospitality and convince them to visit Calgary!
