Houston...Gird Your Loins

I leave in 4 days.  Driving my wares to Houston for the big big show at Catherine Couturier Gallery.  It opens on March 29th and the following morning I go into four days of reviews...Fotofest International Meeting Place.  There just isn't enough medication to manage the mania.

 

sneak peek at the show card.  it is a detail stereo shot of my assemblage piece titled "Ubiquity".  Photographed by Bryce Lankard.


Museum of Fine Arts Houston !!!!!!!!!

It's officially official.  Feral is going into the permanent collection for MFAH.  I am kind of out of my mind with happiness.  Thank you Del Zogg for ALWAYS showing up for me.  You are jet fuel.  And thank you to Houston's Photo Forum members who funded the purchase of this piece.

HAY NOW

One of the very best experiences I've ever had in photography.  Just back from Zebulon, Georgia where I worked and played with my Posse.  Anne Berry, Ann George, S. Gayle Stevens and Bryce Lankard.  We put together a kick ass pop up show.  Here is how it all went down...

Hellloooo Charlotte

I do love the Light Factory.  And I am so honored and humbled to be speaking for their Luminaries Lecture Series this Thursday, July 18th at 7pm at the UNC Charlotte Center City Building.  Here is a link with more info.  Please come.  

The Light Factory

 

Failure To Launch

Making the work, pimping the work, the game, dance, politics and inner mechanics of the art world.  For me...this is cathartic film making.  (And I use the term 'film making' loosely)

Beasts of The Southern Wild

I have deep affection for the Georgian Barrier Islands.  They are strange, exotic and southern.  I've just returned from a trip to Cumberland and Jekyll where I was blessed with the company of Anne Berry and Heidi Kirkpatrick...2 kick ass artists I now cherish as dear friends.

Where I'm From

Written by the delightful Lizzie Mabe.  She is 11.

 

Where I'm From
 by Lizzie Mabe
I am from four square,
From hopscotch and dandelion wishes.  
I am from the time machine,
And the four elements of the fairy world, 
All in my own backyard.
I am from diving boards and ice cream sandwiches,
So cool on a hot day.
I am from mosquitos and lizards,
From squirrells and birdseed.
I'm from Baby Jessie,
And chex mix.
I am from the smell of paint,
Plum pie and salami sandwiches.
I am from Matilda and do re mi.
From the bird clock,
Cheerfully chirping at the hour.
I am from mexican jumping beans,
And popping popcorn,
On the bouncy trampoline. 
I am from thunderstorms,
From rain falling on my face.
I'm from picture books,
From swinging off the rope swing.
I am from the back porch,
Watching the fire die down,
Roasting marshmallows in the moonlight.
