On The Road Again

Everyone assumes that artists are passionate about their work and have a compelling need to make it.  But then what?  Some of the best of the best, not unlike musicians (or bull riders!), take to the road.  Portland is home to quite a few travel -experienced professionals.  Gail Pendergrass, a local potter and Melissa Stiles, jeweler, have mastered not only art, but also the art of shipping, display, selling, bookkeeping, and travel.  And they maintain a vigorous schedule, covering the US at sometimes-weekly intervals.
