Much has happened since first starting here at The Bascom. A good bit of moving and reorganizing, but also being able to start experiencing the classes and groups that Bascom Outreach works with. I’ve been plotting out some, what I hope, to be exciting programming for summer and can’t wait to get started teaching. Also, if you have never been to the Bascom–Come visit! I’ve been really impressed with the exhibitions–present and future- and the programming that happens alongside exhibitions, from panel discussions, giant pinhole cameras and activities for all ages and interests.
I’ve also been busy getting my studio set up in the Bascom before I head out to assist ‘Reconsidered’, a mixed media workshop taught by Jerry Jackson and Jane Wells Harrison at Penland School of Arts. I’m really grateful to have a place to continue my studio practice and love being in the midst of all the activity in the Bascom–So stop downstairs and say hi!
In between plotting summer programming and getting settled in, I’ve been putting in some studio time in preparation for a couple of exhibitions coming up. I was honored to be invited to participate in an exhibition, In/Home at The Printmaking Center of New Jersey with Hannah and Blake Sanders, Josh Dannin, and Myles Calvert this summer and then in an exhibition this fall at Morehead State University with Hunter Stabler, Julie Abijanac, Laura Alexander, Andrea Myers, and Lauren Kussro. Excited to be busy producing. Currently on the table are some dresden plate piecework made from silkscreened wallpaper and a new, soon to be, three color wallpaper.
I’ll be gone until June 10th, but after that come past and say hi–I have a comfy studio chair with your name on it.
