It's a pretty quiet winter over here in Portland. My second winter here, and while it wasn't the terribly hard one that was forecasted, it has been enough. Luckily, I think we just heard the click of springtime in the past few days. People are smiling again, birds are cheeseburgering, and the slog through January and February is done. Now it's just a slip-n-slide to summer, and I can just tell I'm gonna get soaked over the next few months... (in a good way, I assure you.) It's my final semester in grad school and I'm chipping away at my thesis paper and project... might be why you haven't heard from me in a bit! A really fun side project that not surpisingly and conveniently connected to my studio practice and thesis work is npilar; an analog radio show my friend Anne Buckwalter and I have been recording on cassette tape semi-weekly since December. Anne has a fantastic show up at Space this month, and in lieu of an artist's talk, we are taping a live episode on March 13th. we also have a facebook page, so please like us if you are so inclined!
Also: Hoo Boy!, I'm INCREDIBLY HONORED to be a giving 2 Artist talks this spring!
The first is a talk and workshop at my undergrad alma mater Ithaca College with the Advanced Printmaking Class on March 29th. stay tuned for more information!
and on April 18th, I'll be giving a talk at MeCA about my work. The lineup of visiting artists and talks this semester is really really great, so please do check them out!
May 12th is the day I'll ( fingers crossed) I'll graduate- and May 11th is the opening of our thesis show. It's going to be great, so come on over to the ICA at Meca!
wow, lots of opportunities to listen to me talk in the next few months....
