I've had worse days.
Today I took on the joyful task of calling every artist that I was about to feature in fund raisers for 2017 and explain that our plans would be shifted to 2018.
Of course, I will still be paying my rent in a space that I cannot open to the public, but it's a fantastic studio so I'm not complaining. It also helps that my store actually exists online, so it's not like sales are down. I'm lucky I get to learn this the hard way and get off easy. But for those of you in a position of leasing a commercial space (here in Albuquerque), you probably can't afford to learn this the hard way so I'll tell you the details as I find out exactly what I have to do one cliff-jumping step at a time.
