They say a rolling stone gathers no moss, the more things change the more they remain the same...etc. There are probably a few more cliches, if I could just think of them. I am on my own again in the studio, i.e. back to normal.
My wonderful, wonderful assistant, Melissa, decided to simplify her life a bit. She was juggling so many balls that I knew our time together in the studio was going to coming to an end sooner, rather than later. With her help, I re-launched my exhibition career. REALLY! I felt like an utter amateur when I returned to the studio to determine what I had been doing all those years the gallery was open! She helped me discover what I had, think clearly about it, re-write many documents and organize my desktop for applying to shows. Wow! I could not be more grateful. Please support her in her endeavors with her gallery Flow Art Space.
I have been working away on the Jerome Fiber Project Grant...see The Wearing My Age Blog. In the background I hear the embroidery machine stitching away. As a result of the learning process for the Wearing My Age Project, I embroidered a series of hankies with selfies! I just sent 3 of them off to Seattle, to Columbia City Gallery. You can see one of them in the poster;-) Seattle is one of my favorite cities in the world. If you are out there in the next month and a half, check out the show!
The Ophelia Project comes down from Riverland Community College soon...Marcus and I drive down September 25 to pack it up and put it in storage for a few months.
