Past, Present, Future

October 8th, 2009

It was so lovely to have a visit with Ernest Pittman, who was driving up to Vermont for a workshop in Waterbury. We met at my show in Castleton, at his request and had a fine dinner at the Blue Cat Bistro. Good conversation, catching up on the last 20 years of our lives: what we're doing, where the kids are and what they're doing. So interesting!.
It's remarkable how circles of influence and connection intersect and separate over time. To reconnect is such a nice validation.

The show is about to come down. Walking into the gallery for the last six weeks had been so pleasant. I was just handed a copy of the movie that film students shot of my gallery talk. Haven't had a chance to look at it yet. If there's anything worth posting, I'll try to figure out how.

A disappointment was that there was no review of the show. Two articles, but no review. You'd think I'd know at this point in my career that the artist needs to do follow up on press releases. Dogged perseverance. It is by no means enough to just make the art, even though it seems it should be. Reading In Full Bloom, it's obvious that  O'Keefe and Stieglitz were persistant and broad reaching in their PR outreach.
