ENDINGS & BEGINNINGS
What a busy few days, weeks and months it has been. I have changed jobs, begun the final stages of opening a new music store, competed in a singer/songwriter competition at the Hard Rock Gatlinburg…and, oh, the art.
I am finishing up the last few pieces of a show named Psychomachia–a year-long project with Arizona artist Jerry Portelli. I am sad to see the creation portion of the show coming to an end, but excited about being able to soon reveal the work and see the show get legs.
I have started laying the groundwork for a new show, yet unnamed, with South Carolina-based artist Michaela Pilar Brown, that will revolve around the changing image of mental-illness in our new, digitized, fast-food world.
My husband Jon Ives has finally found his mojo again as a photographer, and we have secured spots in a group show during Spoleto. In addition, he installs work at The Shops at Carousel Gardens on Monday, March 22nd, and we have both applied for the Knoxville Art & Culture Alliance‘s 2010 Arts in the Airport Exhibit.
Changes are afoot, folks, changes are afoot.
