pining for petrichor

The good thing about this dry blazing heat is that paint and varnish dry fast. I venture outdoors only to spray foul chemicals, then retreat back to the coolth.

I am making new art. Come see some of it! This year's Wallmountables at DCAC opens Friday, July 12th. One of my fellow Arts Collective members will also be hanging his work, for the first time! We are excited.

When We All Go

 I handed over "If We All Go" to its new owner yesterday -- I am just a tiny bit sad to part with this piece, but it was delightful to meet & chat with the lovely buyer!

** Two other folks who owe me message replies: I have "Moon Box" and "I Seem To Be A Tripod" all wrapt and ready; don't you want your art? **

"If We All Go" (detail)

Next up is the DCAC "Wallmountables" summer show -- July 12 to August 11, 2024. I'd reserved one square, planning to do several tiny things, but today I decided I may want to do several tiny things and one not-tiny thing, so I have reserved a second square.

Rumor has it that one of our quieter Collective members will also be installing something at Wallmountables! Watch this space...

And my new friend asked me if I have a newsletter, so I am going to create a little email list. I will probably just use it to send people these updates directly, since my blog posting is not very regular. Comment to this post if you'd like to be added (no-one will see the comments but me). I also post the link on BlueSky and Farcebook whenever I post something here.

If you would like a deluxe, paper, actual-mail version of my newsletter, it is possible that I will come up with something fancy like that for subscribers in the future! Comment below if you think you might be into that.

Last days for Artomatic 2024

I have had SUCH an amazing time with this giant wild art festival. I met so many cool people (yes, I did come here to make friends!) and saw attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion so much fabulous art. I still haven't seen everything; I will be back tomorrow, peering into undiscovered corners.

I've just emailed or messaged everyone who's bought art from me. Looking forward to meeting y'all during deinstallation! And yes, there is still plenty of art available.  :-)  All the details on my stuff are at this post.

Artomatic final weekend hours: Fri-Sat. 12 to 12, Sunday 12 to 9.

Come check it out if you haven't already! Or pay another visit to your favorite installations. It'll all be gone after this weekend. Dismantled, crated up, carted off... Lost in time, like tears in rain.

Talk Trash With Me!

It's the penultimate weekend for Artomatic 2024, and the show has been amazing. If you haven't seen everything yet, come back and explore! This Sunday at 2 PM, we are having a fun little guided tour of various artists' spaces in conjunction with Earth Day:

Trash Talking Artists! The Earth Day Tour

I have already seen (& adored) several of these installations, and highly recommend checking it out! It's another opportunity to meet and chat with the artists, on a smaller scale (the last Meet the Artists day reportedly saw 7,000 visitors, including a Secret Service presence??) Focusing on one path through the building can help you avoid that Saw Too Much Art, Eyes/Brain Full feeling.

In other news, I have sold quite a few pieces! The link to the full list is here. Folks can pick up their purchases anytime during Deinstall (April 29 to May 11); email me to coordinate. Thanks so much!

Feeling insecure

 My “new” phone is saying this site is Not Secure. I do not know the implications or possible ramifications of that warning, but perhaps you should not post anything important in a comment. My email address is trepan then the numeral eight at y a h o o  (period) calm.

Meet the Artist

Having cut short my Meet the Artists time yesterday (due to apparently being a delicate flower, grrr), I am TENTATIVELY planning to be there for the April 13 event. I am also going to be browsing in the building Sat. 4/20, so ping me if you would like to connect!
