Spring/Summer Update

Well there's a lot to get to but first let me invite all of you to the Towson Arts Collective 3rd Anniversary show! The opening is Friday, June 11th from 6-8. I am pleased and honored to have a drawing in the show along with 70 plus other artists.  The details about the show are below.  If you are unfamiliar with TAC, please take a moment to visit their site (http://www.towsonartscollective.org/).  They are a hard working bunch of people who have been putting together some fabulous shows and great programs right in downtown Towson.

Affiliated with TAC is Furniture Press run by Christophe Casamassima, who just may be one of the busiest people I have ever met. I met Chris earlier this spring and was charmed by his enthusiasm and energy.  I have agreed to design and print roughly 4 book covers a year in editions of 50-60 each.  The first of these books is a book of haiku titled "Fragmentirety" by Jennifer Hill. (http://www.wordpainting.com/jenny-shop.html)  I was a little nervous about printing for someone else, since I haven't really done that sort of work in years but Chris and I worked well together and I am looking forward to future projects!

The book has just been completed and will be available for sale on the Furniture Press website in the near future: http://furniturepressbooks.com/home/ (currently there appears to be something wrong with the site but since it worked yesterday, I'm assuming it's temporary.)

I will also have a few copies for sale on my website.  I don't have them listed yet but keep checking!  I'm attaching a few pics of the finished cover as a sneak peek.


Speaking of the website and the shop, feel free to click over in that direction and check out what's for sale.  I have a full range of items from very small prints to some new original drawings.  I am especially pleased to offer a few prints of older drawings.  These drawings were sold from some of my earliest shows. They are available now as high quality digital prints, matted and ready for framing.  Also, if you have been thinking of including one of the "Night Sky Series" screen prints in your collection, now is the time to do so! What I have listed in the shop is all I have left.  Once they are gone the edition is officially SOLD OUT.

I am also excited to announce that I will be one of the jurors for an upcoming TAC exhibition curated by Christophe!  Fellow artists, please check out the prospectus for "The Text and it's Discontents" (http://www.towsonartscollective.org/call-for-entries).  Feel free to apply to the show and forward liberally!  I can't wait to see what sort of submissions we get!

I hope everyone is having a great start to their summer. While I may not send out another mass email until fall, I will be updating the NEWS section of my site on a more frequent basis so check in there to stay in touch. I hope to see some of you at the opening on Friday!


PS- I still have some Valentine prints left.  If you would like one or didn't get one, please let me know!

**if you would like to be taken off this list, let me know and you will be removed ASAP**
