Save this Date!
This is a picture of me from the Open Stdio Event Heather (my studio partner) and I did last June. You have to plan for these things way in advance. We made it official last night and we are committed (or should be committed) to doing the Open Studio this coming June.
It may seem ridiculous to put something on your calendar now, but our lives are so bury that is how it is these days. The event will be June 7-8 and 14-15, 2008. It will be at Heather's frame shop Creative Framing. We will announce more details as we work them out.
Heather and I have been working very hard to get Four Oceans Press off to a running start. We are about to finish our first print exchange. We both keep up our own websites and have many other draws on our attention - it may seem crazy to have added one more thing to fill up our time, but it has been well worth it. We have collected art from around the world and in the next few days we will be sending the now collated work back to the group of amazing artists who have made wonderful prints to share.
We could not have known how much work it would be, but both of us are happy to work 14 hours a day. In fact, I can safely say I think we both prefer working that hard.
There are still a few spots in the Winter Exchange. The deadline is getting close, but there is still plenty of time to pull a set of prints to share...
We have added a new section to our website - Opening Night Reviews. We go to a lot of shows and usually end up discussing them, taking pictures and meeting and talking to the artists. We created a review section to document our experiences. It adds a lot of work for us, but I think it also adds a new dimensions to our site.
If you are one of our local artists, be sure to let us know about your upcomg openings, so that we can be there.
