Hey... sorry about that.

It's been a while... but new stuff is happening.

First of all, I'm doing a new video blog called "Platinum Select" for Funnel Last month, I went to the Slingluff Gallery, this month I'll be heading to Pterodactyl Project Space and FluxSpace.

Next of all, I have new work on view as part of Let's Play Nice, an exhibition curated by Diedra Krieger at SINErgy Space.

Additionally of all, I have a new jobski doing graphics for a manufacturing company. (Just in case you were wondering.)

I'll let ya'all know when the next Platinum Select is out, because I know you just can't wait.

New Project - How to be on Law & Order

Law & Order: SVU. I've been watching it and making art about watching it - but now it's time for me to be a part of the real thing. My goal is to be onscreen in an episode of the series - in an official capacity.

I have already begun the process, and will continue to document via text and video on a site that I have yet to make. (I'll post it when it's ready.)

First Friday

September! At last!

We've got a new show at Great and Terrible that I'll be babysitting tomorrow night (you should stop by. It's beautiful.) But, before I go over there, I'll be stopping by a few other shows.

First stop, of course, is 11th and Wood Street for Vox Populi, Tiger Strikes Asteroid and, I'm sure, miscellaneous surprises.

Vox was closed for August (thank God.) and reopens with Jamie Dillon, David Kontra, Jonathan Prull (who I'm hoping to meet, as he shares my fixation with one Mr. Clint Eastwood), a curated show by Roxana Perez-Mendez, and Sarah J. Christman in the Video Lounge. (In the interest of full disclosure -- happy now, artblahg? -- I'll be starting an internship at Vox later today.)

Tiger Strikes Asteroid's website makes the claim that we'll be able to view Adam Blumberg's Punctum, which, according to the ICA blog is about midwestern men -- a tasty corollary to Prull's drawings of Eastwood?

Next, I'm going to Projects Gallery for their emerging artists show because my friends Michelle Clements and Kelly A. Kozma are showing in it. (While many of us that qualify as emerging artists are unhappy with what appears to be Projects' new policy that 'It's Who You Know', I'm happy for Kelly and Michelle, who genuinely make excellent work. Also, genuinely excited to see the show, even though there was no open call. Inflammatory post coming soon? We'll see. Oh, and Kelly's showing at Great and Terrible, too...)

Last stop is Little Berlin since they're our neighbors on Montgomery Ave. This month, they've curated some Tyler grad students from the crafts department. I'm, as of now, ambivalent, but may yet be pleasantly surprised.

Oh, and by the way, here's the info you wanted about Great and Terrible --

The Great and Terrible Collective is pleased to bring you Meriviglia, a group show featuring the work of

Alyssa Hamilton
Josh Coombs
Kelly Kozma
Lisa Haskell
Megan Uhaze

Open first friday from 6:30-10:00, but wait! We're having a HUGE POTLUCK BBQ AND CONCERT to celebrate on Saturday, so come on by with a dish and a lawnchair from 5-11! We've got The Snowcaps playing around 8 and special surprises throughout the evening. We're at 172 W. Montgomery Ave.
