Cool person I met and talked to: Rebecca Rowan
Rebecca is currently attending High Point University and recently got the opportunity to collaborate with four other design students from her Textile Design class. They worked on a rug design project that was inspired by the rug designer Abu Khan who has a showroom in High Point. This glimpse of the rug design was presented in the Showplace building. The whole project will be included in a later Market.
Show exhibitor I met & talked to: Jan Zhang
Jan has been running America Arts, Inc. out of Buffalo, NY since 2001. The art was all so beautiful and he was very nice to let me take pics even while he was in the process of setting up his booth. Jan is cool in my book because he took the time to talk to me about his business and when I asked him for a picture with his art, he preferred to take a silly shot instead.
Friday was a slower day because it was raining and everyone was still getting into town. I came across these two while attending the Market Kickoff Party. On my list of events to attend, out of 3 I only made it to 1. Next post is about Saturday, now that’s a way different story!
