Plans in my immediate Future

Just to let you know about future plans I have... I figured that if I commit them here, I will just do it.
1. I will be entering a piece in International Fluxhibition #3. This is a cyberspace exhibition of Fluxus art. If you google Fluxus, you can learn what this genre is . You can read about the exhibition here This is another wonderful venture by Cecil Touchon, an incredibly productive and terrific collage artist. Here is Cecil's website where there are links to his online museums. He prints actual paper catalogs for each show and they are available for purchase at reasonable cost. The exhibit is not juried and the deadline for entry is June 30, 2009 - so I better get my show on the road. And you, too, if you want to enter.

2. I will be entering work in The Book About Death. This is "1000 artists contribute 500 post cards each to create an unbound book about death." There will be a live exhibition at the Emily Harvey Foundation Gallery in New York City, NY. The exhibit opening will be Thursday, September 10, 2009. The exhibition will go from September 10 - 22, 2009. You can read all about it here On the site, you can also see some of work that has already been entered. The submission date is September 9, 2009, so you have plenty of time if you are interested in entering. The concept is brilliant and the brain child of Matthew Rose, a fabulous collage artist living in Paris, France. You can see his work here Any one who is interested in submitting art to this exhibition should check out the blog where you can download a pdf file with all the details. The more artists that enter, the better. This is not a juried exhibition, so all entries will be accepted.

3. I have begun a book collaboration with an artist friend, Patricia Bronstein We plan to do a book a month over the course of a year. June is Month #1. I am up first and I have decided to make an altered book as the substrate. Haven't yet decided the theme. But I did pick up some suitable raw material yesterday from the $1 stalls at The Strand.

4. I have a surprise giveaway planned for my readers by the end of this month. So tell all your friends to keep track of my postings and doings.

5. I will be posting a photo of our lovely bush in the park either by the end of today or early tomorrow morning. Haven't visited with her since 5/11, so I am excited to see where she is in the circle of life.

I will be posting photos of all of the above as they happen - plus any new unplanned developments that grab my attention.


  1. Looks like you are "arting" at the speed of sound. Some great things coming up for you. I am off now to check put some of the links you posted. Thanks!!

  2. Whew, forget the speed of sound, you are approaching the speed of light! Way to go. Some of those links are really cool; and all are different. Also cool. Glad for you.

    BTW, what is the speed of dark?

  3. Each artist is creating five hundred post cards? That's insane! :)
