Put it on your calendar!
I am so pleased to share this with you. The collaborative suite of photographs, I DWELL IN IMPOSSIBILITY, that my son John and I worked on, is about to be exhibited in its entirety for the second time on roughly five years, and he is flying in from Boston to be at the opening!
John is a powerful artist and thinker in his own right. We have collaborated before
and would more often,I suspect, if Boston weren't so far away! The idea for this
began many years ago while I was at a residency in Illinois. I wondered what it meant
when a woman wore a "power suit." Time passed, I aged and I wondered what would
it mean if a grey-haired woman, with a "pregnant belly" wore a "power suit?"
As luck would have it, I had shoulder surgery and John flew out to check up on me.
We talked some more about the idea. He costumed me, I took my drugs and he
directed me. The photoshoot brought out all kinds of dissonances concerning age,
gender and power.
It has been a very successful group of artworks. Portions of this suite have been
exhibited all across the country.
Do come and meet him and say "HI" to me as well.
The reception and celebration is Friday, October 25, 6:30-8:30pm

Feast or famine; Flood or drought.
That is the way of the art world. You send out failing proposals, rejection after
rejection seemingly forever. And then the dam breaks and you are overwhelmed with
opportunities for exhibition. The studio is at "flood stage" right now!

And, by the time you see me again, I will be a "Certified Ricoma Technician." But,

repairing my new commercial embroidery machine!
Hope to see you soon.
