It’s been a while, since I announced my involvement with The Artist Catalogue, and my excitement hasn’t waned. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the publication of the summer issue, since early April. TAC is a quarterly publication highlighting writers and visual artists; with each issue curated to represent the breadth of talent across the nation. Included within this issue are four writers and twelve visual artists, including myself.
I’m pleased to announce that the summer issue has arrived. My involvement with TAC has been a wonderful experience. Its humbling and rewarding to see my relief and print work published side-by-side.
With each reading, I discover new things. Recently, I’ve been lost in the works of Yang Xiaohua. I strongly suggest taking a moment, or two, when viewing Rickshaw; you’ll be happy you did so. The Summer Issue of The Artist Catalogue is available for download, printed catalogues are offered on an annual basis.
It’s been roughly one week since I packed my supplies and readied myself for DSPS‘ May Artist Connection. The scheduling of this program coincided with the 9th Annual Print Show; so it seemed only fitting to demo one of the processes I favor, collagraph.
Having the opportunity to demo is such a gift; you’re exposing yourself and your practice to others. If things align just-so, the demo changes from one-sided instruction to something much more collaborative. Fortunately, Saturday’s program was the later. The discussion was refreshing, and those in attendance were as invested in the print’s outcome as I was.
Having time to reflect, I feel humbled and hope those in attendance found the afternoon to be as rewarding as I did.
