I am behind the eightball putting this out there, but the exciting news is that my work will be included in this year's Portland Museum of Art Biennial! I was contcted in early March with the news and have in the meantime met with the PMA's new curator of Contemporary and Modern Art, Jessica May, who cheerfully traveled to Unity College recently to see my work in a recent show there. I'm incredibly pleased to be among the 28 artists chosen--out of 900 who submitted--whose work fit into a vision that Jessica has for this year's show which is titled Piece Work. The show opend on October 3 and will stay up until January 5, 2014. This is such a confirmation for me of the direction that my recent work has taken. Now to get that website established finally (we're working on it)! And in the meantime I have completed another wall hanging/construction and have another (a commission this time) in the works.

Yesterday I hung my large wall collage in Rockland at the Congregational Church on Limerock Street. I am grateful to Judy Waterman for giving me this opportunity and to Rick for his help installing it. It's great to have it up again and the space there is near perfect for it, as you can get some distance from it as well as inspect it up close at your leisure. Stop by and see it if you are in Rockland. The church is open to the public during the day 9-3 except Saturdays. I believe it closes early (1 p.m.) on Fridays. It will remain up for the next two months.

It has been a year now. It feels just as insignificant to say that as it feels significant. Though I have been thinking a lot about this date as it approached and thinking that I might write about it finally today I really don't feel like doing that as much as I do feel like doing it. I wonder if by writing theose terrifying details I can finally purge myself of them. It is great to have finished the Lucky project and to have the piece hanging in the gallery. Just some thoughts for the day, in acknowledgment of the passage of time.

Well, I succeeded in uploading an image of the piece I made for the show called Lucky, for which I asked people to send me a story about feeling lucky, but failed to get any pictures of the big installation I referred to in the previous post to publish. Maybe they are too big? Don't know, but in the meantime Annadeene posted an image of it on facebook and the Aarhus website will have pictures, if they are not there already, on their website: www.aarhusgallery.com
