a couple of definites

I almost forgot to say: last chance to bid on this book and /or a great many other works, and support Women’s Studio Workshop and the only visual arts residencies dedicated to women while you do!

I’ve gotten a few bids, but the book is still going for far below gallery price.    The Annual Auction ends tomorrow, April 15, at 9 pm. I surely do wish I had the cash to bid on a few things, but they could be yours…!

I won’t know until I get there if this is exactly where I’ll be, but I can hope!  I’ll be spending my 2010 birthday at Ragdale, hooray!  It’ll be a perfectly timed residency after teaching three intensive classes in three states and putting work into four shows (I think; still waiting to finalize one) in four states, one (or two) of which will involve on-site installation on my part. It will allow me to get ready for a fifth (and possible sixth) solo show coming up later in the fall (and possibly winter). Thank you, thank you, thank you, Ragdale!  You are my touchstone, and I am forever and always grateful.  The beautiful old Ragdale house will be closed, undergoing an extensive restoration, so it will be a smaller group, a different dynamic, and so I feel doubly lucky, definitely.  And now (sigh) back to the admin…and midnight oil.
