Intelligentsia & Maine.
This week I am getting art ready for the walls of Intelligentsia, a coffee place at Sunset Junction, in Silver Lake. I'm really excited to be showing work there, because its always full of people. I hear the coffee's good too; its a favorite amongst coffee nerds.
The walls are a deep red, so I am finishing up some pieces that can hold their own on such an intense background. These pieces are huge by my standards. Stone Lithography on Rives BFK paper, with monoprinting and xerox transfers and drawing. I have 10 or 12 of these I've been working on lately; I started them in graduate school. I'm thinking I'll have 4 from this series for Intelligentsia, along with some other pieces.
I finally booked my flight to Maine. In June I will be assisting Bonnie Stahlecker for two weeks at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts on Deer Isle, Maine. I am so very excited! I took Bonnie's bookbinding class a few years ago at Frogman's in South Dakota, and it was an amazing week. I imagine Haystack will be like Penland, but with lobster. Hooray!
Here's Bonnie's class at Frogman's...I'm in the middle, in an orange shirt.
