What's New at NBO
Spring is all around me as I write this Over/Under. I have hummingbirds feeding on crimson and white salvia flowers while Monarch butterflies hover around flowers in my garden. We even have a pair of Mallard ducks walking on my street. Their nest must be nearby. They don’t seem to care about the humans and dogs that are interested in them! I’m looking forward to seeing their ducklings soon.
Our next NBO Presents will be on Thursday, May 19th at 11 am Pacific Time. The subject is how to photograph your work. We hope this will help many of you prepare to enter our two upcoming exhibitions that are listed below. In the meantime, here’s a link to an article from Basketry+ several years ago: Capturing Your Work with Photography.
