Down to the Wire

Note to self- next time you plan to have a show of your work, HAVE THE WORK before you plan the show.

I have been nearly killing myself to get everything ready for the show. Late nights at the printing studio at school to get everything printed (still not done). Long evenings in the home studio doing what I can here. Plus, trying to keep up on the homework. It's enough to drive you batty.

Have no fear, however, because I am not so easily daunted. I will have evrything done in time. Hopefully by tomorrow night, so that I am ready to set up Saturday.

I'm glad that our expectations for this event are rather low key. It'll be hard to disappoint folks that way.

Unless they all think that my work sucks. that would suck.

I think it's pretty good stuff. An interesting journey through the discovery of drypoint as a medium to tell my story. I think you can SEE the discovery in it. Think of this as a preview of what's to come. I have learned so much from this experience that I want to include in my next series of work. In fact, I have many different 'series' in my head. So I'll be busy for some time to come.

Anyway, check us out this Sunday. See above and below for more information.

Art Show Update

As with most things in life, art is ever changing. Many times, what you have planned is the farthest thing from what actually happens. Remember when I told you that our show would be all about works inspired from spending time in the great outdoors? Ya, well, no. Didn't happen. Don't get me wrong, we've been pretty busy. It's just that things didn't go according to plan. Sometimes you get better art that way anyway.

I'm pretty happy with the stuff I have been working on, and the others have turned out some really cool stuff too. So there will be plenty to see.

We did make one concrete decision that will become reality. We are going to have FUN with this event and not let it stress us out. We want to have a party for our family, friends, and community and just enjoy ourselves and our time with you. So to this end, we have decided to have the show only for one day, Sunday October 9th from 3 until 6pm. We will serve some great refreshments, and open up the gallery to spend some time with you. I really hope you can make it. See the flyer elsewhere on this site for specifics. If you need directions, visit www.nrtofeaston.org to get you there.

New York

I went to New York while the Gates project was up. It was my first trip to the city and I had a blast. I also got to check out the Guggenheim and many of the galleries in Chelsea. What a hoot. A few more pictures to come.

A little presedential campaign history

Long ago, when Adelaide Stevenson was on the old campaign trail, A woman once said to him, "Sir, you have the vote of every thinking American!"

Mr. Stevenson responded, "That's not enough. I need a majority." I wonder if that's why he lost.

But it makes me think. And that's the whole idea I am sure. Art is made when thoughts are put into some sort of physical medium. At least good art is. When you sit in front of that easel, think about what you want to accomplish. If you know you want to create a work of beauty by imitating nature, or the human body, good. If you want to express an obscure political or social point of view, good. If you want to tell your life's story, good. Just think about what it is you are doing, and do it well. To your best ability. That's what it's all about.

art in the outdoors

It's finally spring! Remember those spring weekend days when mom rolled you out of bed, served you cold cereal, made you clean your room, then kicked you out of the house until sunset? I was fortunate enough to have woods out my back door, so I romped around through the brush, built tree houses, swam in the river, and threw together leantos to hold my club meetings. Well, it's time to get outside again, and that is just what we in the Collective will be doing.

October 7-10, 2005 The Jenny Lind Street Collective will present Art In The Outdoors at Natural Resources Trust on Main Street in North Easton. Please refer back often for updates concerning gallery hours and featured works.

The new collective

So, it's finally off the ground, this little effort of ours. I am excited to announce the formation of up and coming artists in this special little town of Easton, Massachusetts. Our town, so rich in history, has always been supportive of art, music, and architecture.
We are pleased to be involved in this community in the way we know how, through making the best art possible.
