Pins and Needles

27 02 2010

Oooh boy!  What an exciting day so far!!  Tonight is the closing for my solo show at the East Bank Commerce Center here in lovely SE Portland!  Although, a lot of  people will be going down to the I Heart Art Etsy meet and greet, I am hoping to catch some people before/after they head out for that.  Got a bunch of snacks, beer, wine and sodes from Trader Joe’s on the cheap today…thank my lucky stars for them!  A little nervous about tonight but really more excited than anything else!

Time for us to catch up..

20 02 2010

By us, I am not exactly sure who that is, but someone is reading this blog, and thank you for that!  It’s still interesting to me that people come by and read about what’s going on with each other, but it’s like a friend coming by your house when you aren’t home.  Technology sort of blows my mind sometimes.

At any rate, things have been good an productive.  Got a new studio down on Burnside, in a area that I love.  Super close to the post office, down town, and a bunch of my favorite galleries/places to eat in PDX!  Moving the first of all my junk into it today!  Photos coming soon.

This upcoming Friday (Feb. 26th)  is the closing reception for my solo show that has been up for the month of February, at the East Bank Commerce Center, down on Water Ave in good ol’ PDX!  There will be snacks and beverages, and art!  Come on inside my soft, gooey, emotionally detached world. 🙂

The big one, the myth, the legend: The Portland Love Show! A huge, all encompassing group show held each year in our fair city. This year’s show will house the work of…over 350 visual artists! Yes, 350. I will have one quite small piece in the show, see if you can find it!

Selected pieces of work will be up, in a one lady style exhibition at The East Bank Commerce Center. It will be up and available for looking and buying as of tomorrow. There will be a reception later in the month, stay tuned. I am really proud of this body of work, as it is all new/fine tuned pieces, that make me smile.

Last but certainly not least. Krist is going back to tour in Europe with Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band from Brooklyn.

If you happen to be in Portland, OR on Feb 16th-do come to Kelly’s Olympian in Downtown PDX. Krist will be playing a solo set along with current former members of Southerly. Fabulous stuff: The Eloi (Casey Montgumery), Protest Hill (Ryan Heise), and Creature Guts (Dan O’Hara). It is also the launch party of Krist’s new label, Self Group.
Shall be grand!
