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.
