I finished 2 new books: Pattern 1 + 2. They are similar but each a different, unique book. 308 pages, 8.5 x 11 photocopied, with a hand-painted chipboard cover. I may make a series of these, each exploring a different theme/form/idea.
I have some work in the 2010 Sitka Art Invitational – stop by the Opening Reception on Thursday, November 11 from 8-10pm.
Yesterday was our first day of business at the bookstore. Come visit us soon, hang out and peruse the books in a comfy chair - or just say hello.
Getting ready (and excited) for Portland2010. Various venues will be used around the city for this new version of the biennial. My exhibition will be at the Templeton Building (a total of 8 artists/groups will be showing in the building) and the opening is on March 20. I have about 3,500 square feet of space to use so it should be interesting.
