Fall is upon us, and I have some news! Once again, everything is reaching
criticalmass in a one week stretch.
1) My hilarious hottie of a girlfriend has been squirreling away with her computer, writing blog after blogof comic genius. And she is getting noticed for it! She is featured this week on DailyBrink.com. Included in the article are some pics I took, but more importantly, this is more exposure for her amazing writing. Beware: astute social commentary wrapped in an attractive package. Click on the image below to go right to the article:
2) This Thursday, as a part of the Nomadic Studio project, I am participating in a panel at the DePaul University Museum called:
Printmaker as Distributor, Collaborator, and Facilitator
DePaul University Museum, 2350 N Kenmore Ave.
October 7, 6-7:30pm
How does the history of print as a medium for the dissemination of information affect the role of contemporary printmakers? Does this draw more educators to the medium? How does the communal print studio affect the nature of artwork being created? Does the emphasis on technique, craft, and tools create an environment welcoming to new students or restricted?
Printmaker as Distributor, Collaborator, and Facilitator will explore the role of education within contemporary printmaking. Panelists will include Wrik Repasky, Coordinator of Printmaking at Harold Washington, Tom Lucas, Director of the Printmaking Department at Lill Street Art Center, and CJ Mace, MFA student through Columbia College Book and Paper program. The panel will be moderated by Angee Lennard, founder and director of Spudnik Press Cooperative.
This event is organized by the Stockyard Institute and Spudnik Press.
3) And, this Friday, an opening reception for the Chicago Printer's Guilds first show. I have a print installation created in collaboration with Sanya Glisic in the show:
Friday, October 8 · 6:00pm - 11:00pm
