Well mostly I’ve been here in Ohio.
Though I did take a brief escape to IN to soak in the magic-yness of my parents’ garden
Doing what? The usual summer flurry of Calls For Entry: grants, shows, etc. (yawn).
(while also pondering the next Postcard Collective exchange…)
Embarking on new collaborative art adventures…
(with moral support from the cats, of course)
Making new friends…
Preparing for new Adventures in the World of Gainful Employment.
And speaking of adventures;
Enjoying the weekly adventure of veggie surprises every week from our CSA from Rock Dove Farms
which has led to some culinary adventuring for Boyfriend and I.
I’ve also thinking. A lot. About. Monsters, and things that go ‘bump’ in the night–
-while cataloging my own fears/anxieties in an ‘Encyclopedia Apocalyptica
It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Have you heard? It’s summer.
which means, among other things, cheap movie nights, cold Oberon, late night ice cream walks, reading whole books in one sitting and plenty of sunshine (excluding the wonderful gloom hanging over today)
Next Thursday, Pareidolia opens in Gordy Fine Art and Framing’s “Nook” space! The show will feature seven small, mixed media drawings and will be held in conjunction with Drawing Practice. Not only are these pieces on special loan from the archives of the North American Pseudohistorical Society – not only are they also so brand new they’ve yet to be photographed- NOT ONLY will I be there in (sweaty)person to offer special insight into the weird world of Numerological Historiographs- But the main event will feature work from BSU Drawing Professors and was curated by a Mr. Scott Anderson. Basically, coming to this show to see my work will be like going to see your friend’s community theater performance of Pirates of Penzance , y’know, because you’re an awesome person and your community theater always puts on a decent show AND you happen to have a soft spot for Gilbert and Sullivan, when suddenly, at the end of act one Frank Zappa is lowered on a wire amidst glitter cannons to perform a new and particularly obscene version of “A Modern Major General.”
It’s going to be that epic.
“With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse.”
Also there will be snacks!
The opening reception will be Thursday, April 4 from 5pm to 8pm, and the show will run all through the month of April.
Wednesday evening I had ambitions to write posts full of tasty pictures and hints of Just What I’ve Been working on lately (that’s been so hushhush) that would publish over weekend in a sort of Christmas treat.
Then Thursday happened. And then Friday. And then before I knew it, I was in Indiana.
Not that they don’t have internet at my parents’ house- they do. But they also have two dogs (one of whom is a persuasive napper). And an abnormally large comfy couch. And a nearly endless stream of coffee and tea. AND it was Christmas.
So that post didn’t happen when I planned it, and the weekend was lovely enough that I make no apologies. That said, I do still want to let you guys in on what’s been going on. So, I give you, a sneak peek at what is being called the Letterbox Project:
A very Merry Feast of Steven to you!
*For some reason unknown to even me, I always clean the kitchen/do the dishes before leaving for any extended period of time. The kitchen is usually cleaner when I’m not home.
