Wow! Six months has come and gone so quickly! Coming here I had many goals that I wanted to accomplish. I’m happy to say I accomplished most of them. This was an amazingly enriching experience for me.
Since arriving in Navasota people keep asking me how I’ve liked it. I have to say that while it’s different from big city life, I’ve enjoyed the incredible sense of community here. It was a nice change to get to know my neighbors. Everyone was very supportive. If anything made this residency for I would have to say it was the people. And to those people I say thank you:
Mayor Bert Miller
Councilman Geoff Horn and his wife
City Council of Navasota
Corey Johnson and Rachel Stack
Barbara Henley Walker
Jose and Lucy Coronilla and their family, especially Mary
Dom, Steve and Pat – love you guys!
Jon Cooley aka Ol’ Rusty
Mrs. Ganske, Mrs. Ballew and their para staff
Ricki Weinkauf of Navasota Muscle Care
My fellow artist and roommate Scotty Gorham – You already know
Last but, not least, Program Manager, Amy Salvaggio – You are an unsung rock star!
Thank you to the Art’s Council of Brazos Valley for the this awesome opportunity.
And to the many people I have encountered in Navasota and Bryan/College Station working to keep art alive in your communities, a great big thank you!
