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.

That's really terrific. Good luck on your show at the coffee place. I hear they're pretty good to so have a cup.

Haystack is an experience you will never forget! I did a fiber workshop there with Josef Bajus - but the enduring benefit has been the friends I made with other fiber artists. Look forward to reading about it on your blog!

Good luck with your show at Intelligentisa :) I am a total coffee nerd.

Oh....I wish I was going to Haystack. I can't wait to hear about your experience when you get back!

Nice to see your face :) Wish I live nearer - although I don't drink coffee, I'd love to see your work live. Good luck!
