In addition to this exhibit, I have been working on a paper which I will present at this year's conference of The Souther Humanities Council, in Louisville, Kentucky. The paper is entitled: "Confessions of a Collagist: Appropriation of 'Private' Images for 'Public' Art (or Your Grandmother Makes for a Nice Substrate)". The paper focuses on copyright law and civil law relating to use of photographic images in artwork. I just wanted to inform anyone reading this blog that although there appears to be some "lulls in the action", there are still things going on behind the scenes in my art world. I look forward to sharing some of the photos from Friday's opening. And I sincerely thank everyone who shows interest in this blog. I appreciate it!

Lull in the blogaction
I do very much appreciate the followers of this blog and everyone who shows interest in my work and the state of collage in general. I know my posts are sometimes erratic in terms of there frequency. But I assure you that there is always something going on in my art world, even if it is happening behind the scenes. I have a solo show on exhibit this month in my hometown of Utica, NY. It's at a venue called "The Other Side", run by Orin and Kim Domenico. This couple is extraordinarily supportive of the jazz and art scene in Utica and are also politics activists and role models for many young people in the area. Hats off to Orin and Kim! The Other Side has been hosting art exhibits of some well-known local (and not-so-locally recognized) artists over the past couple years. I was honored and humbled to be asked to show my work at this venue. Friday night is the opening reception of my exhibit entitled "So Far". I LOVE the poster for the show!
