I’ve just received some really great news this afternoon! I just found out that I was accepted to the 2012 group for the Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers at the Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon. What that means is that I was selected as one of a group of photographers from the greater Northwest Region (defined by the gallery as Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Oregon) that will be in the Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers… which I suspect is what it sounds like, although I haven’t had opportunity to see them yet. What I’m envisioning is some stacks of print drawers in a section of the gallery that can be browsed in a more space-efficient means than wall display, but I’ll let you know if I hear that it’s actually something else.
I’m pretty excited about it, and I’m really pleased that the Papo’s Shop series is finding some traction out in the world. It’s a good lesson for me to make the work I want to make, and share it with the world!
I’m also starting to get ready to head to Wyoming for the Jentel Residency Program next month. I’ve been brainstorming the work I’d like to try to make, but, like most things, I’ll probably have to react somewhat organically to the space and setting.
And this, of course, reminds me that there is still some follow-up work from my time at the OBRAS house in Renkum… I’ve got some photos to show you, and, of course, you can still find some of my drawings (these drawings specifically) at the Danforth Gallery in Livingston, along with my first-ever screen printed work. Oh, and then there’s some new projects that I’ve also got to get going on the site here… so I’m a busy bee with a lot of pots on the stove, if you don’t mind me mashing a couple of metaphors together.
It seems I’ve already got a pretty busy few months ahead of me, and we’re just barely into the new year, so I’d better get back to work!
