I'll take more time in the next week to fill you all in on what's been happening in my world over the past month, because there's frankly a lot to tell you about and I'm just sitting down with a coffee in the minutes before work. I don't want to play the hype game and tell you “big things are on their way,” because that feel presumptuous, so instead I'll say...wheels are turning, and in the right direction.
To keep you up to speed on the most immediate stuff, I have a show opening at the Lake Country Art Gallery tomorrow afternoon. Big Fish is a group exhibition exploring ideas around narrative, truth, and storytelling curated by Wanda Lock, and it's shaping up to be an excellent body of work. Swing by the gallery tomorrow (Saturday the 14th) at 1pm to catch an artist talk/panel with the lot of us as we discuss the ways we understand Story and how that brought us all to a point where we could make art and stuff about it. The opening proper will happen after that, from 2-4pm. I suppose I should add: this is the first gallery show for which I'm being paid CARFAC fees. It's a milestone. This is me stepping boldly forth into “professional artist” territory, I guess.
This is the other thing that's happening.
