Default MPG - 2015 Pictures

Hi Folks.

Well, this was the first public display of the entire IAP Collection to date. (I will work tomorrow on the MPG "Best of Show" Addition pictures). Congrats to "you know who"!!!

2015 - MPG
(Midwest Penturners Gathering)
Champaign, Illinois. April 17-18

IAP Collection - Initial Display

Any suggestions on the display (NOT my forte), please send me a PM! I am very open to suggestions.

A summary... It was very well received! Folks were thrilled to be able to see and pick up the pens for close admiration. Penturners/Artists... Well Done!

What an awesome group of pens! I hope to be able to see them in person someday.

I really like the banner and the little note cards.
Great job, Mark!

Hopefully, someday I might get to see this in person. Until then, pictures are the next best thing. These look wonderful.

Mark, your work is deeply appericated.

Hi Randy: No, I regret not taking more pictures. Frankly, I was more concerned about watching over the pens; but after the fact, I probably could have wandered more.

I think a designated "photo" person is a great idea, and will be easy to get set up.

Hopefully, a few of the other attendees took some shots.

Sorry I haven't seen this previously been busy away travelling and don't get to visit these forums much.

The display looks great. How are they being received? Are the questions more about how they are made, how to get one, or just admiration?

Hi Neil:

Hope all is well in your neck of the world.

Both displays at MPG and MAPG went well. The interest was strong with all level of turners. The beginners asked questions, the experienced turners carefully examined the pens that are similar to theirs. The kitless were popular, as there is a nice variety.

Kurt Hertzog (AAW current President) told me he would save a table next year at the Saratoga Springs Symposium if I could get it there. So I'll need to work on that date (April 1-2, 2016).

There are 35 pens now, so it is a nice number. In a few years when it gets to 45-50+, the display can become a bit more selective if appropriate. I also need to get some wooden cases with glass tops, so they can be in a more protected format when in a crowd. For the MPG and MAPG it was fine for the open trays, but for other venues I suspect more care will be needed.

And yes, some random folks want to buy them... I say I can give them the contact numbers for the artists

The Collection is a nice addition to the regional gatherings, definately a conversation starter, and these folks appreciate the time devoted to these works. The craftsmanship and artistry is well admired.

Take care and be well!

Hate to bring this up but presentation is key. I know how much you put into this project so please get a lint roller and use it.
