Entourage seems to be operating ok - if it doesn't disappear. I did take a break from my 24/7 computer hell yesterday and went to an art exhibit at the Ben Shahn Galleries. This was a Studio Montclair national juried show and it was a mixed bag: very heavy on photography, light on printmaking, and otherwise a bit edgy which made it interesting. The portraits by Karen Alexander were my favorite things in the whole show. There were two from this HoJo series - fascinating concept. When I joined SMI about a decade ago and they asked me what my medium was, I said fiber. "We don't have that category," they said. "If you want to join you'll have to pick something else So - mixed media it was. Today they have quite a number of fiber members. I don't know whether the artist that did this piece in the show is a member or not, but I thought it was pretty cool...and it was indeed the only fiber in the show. Tomorrow, I continue trying to throw stuff out and throw it into the box I am going to ship to Missouri for next week's class. But at this rate, I will probably sleep late in the morning.
