It has been a while since a posting from me…
There has been so much going on, not quite sure where to start!
Between events and openings, and natural havoc, the residency has settled into a good swing. May has been a drawing marathon month. Much time is spent in the studio.
So in the rhythm of living, sometimes documenting gets postponed for a spell until later, when then everything can be mentioned and described all together and hopefully in order. This posting is a **brief** recap:
There has been flooding. This is the most immediate thing to come to mind. Road closures and rivulets and 5ft-long alligator gar angling around the legs of dairy cows as they try to return to a more suitable water residence have been quite out of the norm. I hope that folks are making out alright through these environmental conditions.
Prior to the crazy wind/lighting storm was Relay for Life. After the crazy wind/lighting storm, Lisa & I ventured down to Houston for First Friday. We saw a “Pool Party” group show (:Celan Bouillet, William Cannings, Daniela Edburg, Katja, Loher, Kristen Martincic, Neva Mikulicz, Lana Waldrep-Appl, James Zamora) at the Anya Tish Gallery and Mie Olise’s “Allusions on Place” at the Barbara Davis Gallery. It’s heart-warming to unexpectedly see aquatics and pineapples in a city you’ve never been before.
There have been great events (& more to come)!
Local art shows, The Downtown Bryan Art Fair last month, the Grimes County Expo, Dining on Dartmouth this month a few weeks past…
…Customer Appreciation Day last weekend, & there is our Open House here at the Horlock Gallery next Saturday the 30th, from 2:30-5pm. Also this past weekend I was delighted to hear some talented organists share their musical expertise.
HORLOCK OPEN HOUSE = ART, LIVE MUSIC, PUPUS from the Filling Station, DOOR PRIZES, ACTIVITY! Do come.
It’s exciting & uplifting to meet folk and explore this creative-supportive community! I’d like to express appreciation & gratitude for the opportunities we’ve had here being artists in residence. Big thanks to The Arts Council, Navasota, The Village Cafe, Guerilla Art Takeover, neighbors, & roommates.
