Be sure to check out this month's issue of Mothering...

It's this one, with the adorable baby girl on the cover. It's available at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Whole Foods and Babies R Us, among other places.

There's an excellent and surprisingly lengthy bento article inside, with how-tos. And I'm not just saying that because I contributed stuff...it's a really nice article. Well worth picking up. :)

The gallery opening was wonderful...

I really enjoyed meeting everyone and the three-hour reception just flew by. I was amazed by how many people came in off the street to have a look.

It was a great chance to help broadcast the merits of bento, and wonderful to see lightbulbs going off in people's heads as they got inspired to do their own thing. People were also very interested in information about natural food colorings and a lot of people took literature on the colorings with them. The sake and plum wine at the wine bar were also greatly enjoyed ;)

Having a gallery show was a wonderful experience and I'm really grateful to have that opportunity. The opening reception was a lot of fun.

My bento images (not the fresh ones, but the photos) will be hanging in the Art Space of Yellow Springs, 108 Dayton Street, until mid-August. The gallery was open to the public on that first evening, but by appointment the rest of the time. If you'd like to see what's there, email me or the Arts Council...I can open up the gallery if there's a free spot on their schedule.

Here are some photos
from the opening reception. Thanks again, everyone :)
