beating the yips

So I’ve seemingly abandoned this space for a while. It’s been a doozy of a summer, friends!

I’ll be back with a post-mortem on my show and all its trappings. But for now, you can see some installation views on the gallery website. Just scroll to the bottom and look in the photostream. There are some shots from the standing-room-only lecture too.

But here I’d like to share what has been a joy for me to see. Seeing how others view the show through their social media posts has opened my mind more to the aesthetic aspects of the show itself. You know, I’ve just buried my head in all those stitches and never really came up for air until, well, last week.

To battle the inevitable mental yips that come after an experience like this, I decided just to play and just made a quilt in a week. Here are the shots and the deets.

True confession #628: I’m getting all anxious about logistics, or rather about not being heard when I warn. But the gallery director just told me to tell my people to arrive early and stake a claim to some seats if you’re coming to the talk on Tuesday, July 9. Early is like 6:30-ish maybe? Talk begins at 7:30 but a public meeting of local artists starts in the same room at 7. There’s also a smaller reception in the gallery that night starting at 6, so you’ll be entertained then too. xo

i was gonna title this post “strange fruit”

…but that will fit better as a title for the new work I’m doing now.

My recent work is at Grossman Gallery this summer.
