MSU Summer Arts Academy wrapping up

Today’s the last day of the MSU Summer Arts Academy, and we’ve had a fun and productive time with the seven high school students from across Kentucky that have worked in the areas of photography, mixed media & shaped paintings, digital art and textiles.  Guess which one I was in charge of . . .

Off to the first Meet & Greet of Kentucky’s chapter of the Surface Design Association immediately following the students’ presentations this morning.  It’s an opportunity to meet other textile artists, share artwork, and I will be doing a demo on photographing your artwork on the “cheap”.  One thing that is not “cheap” is the new Canon G11 I will be using to photograph the artwork – teaching the MSU intersession class paid that bill!

Current exhibitions news: right now, I have work @ Miami University’s (of Ohio) Hiestand Gallery for the CraftSummer 2010 Faculty Exhibition and the Winchester Opera House Gallery for a religious artwork exhibition (heh heh).  Prior to leaving for a worldwind tour of Columbus, Oxford, Cincinnati, & Baltimore (family visits, CraftSummer teaching, Americans for the Arts conference) late next week, I’ve got to get out work to Bead & Fiber Gallery in Boston (first time exhibiting in that city!).  There’s work up in Portsmouth OH at the Southern Ohio Museum for consideration re: the exhibition Cream of the Crop, so we’ll see happens with that.

Busy busy.  July (other than teaching at the Indianapolis Arts Center in mid-July for a weekend) is fairly free from obligations.  Pete and I are going to try to work in a trip to VA to see Jefferson’s Monticello.  Geek vacation!

Finally, we have entered the final frontier of cultural acclimation, and are now owners of a fine, 25 yr old Dodge Ram truck.  It’s mainly for our mini-farmville we’re setting up.  Keep on truckin’!
