June 16 to 22, 2016, Grant-Related Activities

Participating in a critique at a recent retreat at Rainbow Rivers Center, led by Linn Sennott and me.

  • I continued to work on my new painting in the Terra Firma series.
  • I had three meetings with curators and gallery directors resulting in solo shows planned for 2017 and 2018, dates to be decided. We talked about the possibility of me putting some of the grant money towards a catalog at one of them--a non-profit gallery.
  • I communicated again with a Ghost Ranch employee about a retreat I plan to lead there next summer.
  • I bought a much-needed cabinet and shelving for my home office and completely reorganized my office.
  • I sent a follow-up email to Sanjoy Roy of Salaam Balaak Trust in New Delhi about working with children during my residency at Sanskriti Foundation in December. I plan to incorporate the children's work in my solo exhibition at Studio@620 next year that will have educational and interactive components and will relate to the pollution of Florida's springs and India's Yamuna River.
  • I publicized my painting classes at the Morean Art Center and at my studio on Facebook and LinkedIn. I also maintained my regular teaching schedule at four different locations.
  • I contacted Pankaj Vir Gupta, an architect who studied at the University of Virginia and now has a practice in New Delhi, regarding my project relating to the Yumana River in India.
  • I followed up on a mailing to out-of-state art galleries with emails.
  • I contacted galleries about selling the greeting card with an image of my artwork on the front that I recently had printed.
  • I attended the Studio@620 birthday party. The work for the Members' Only Art Show (in which I have a mixed media collage) is now up. The artists' reception is scheduled for Saturday, July 9.
  • I updated my blog.
