it's always something

i had the best morning of uptown gallery hopping last tuesday - Soulages, Rauschenberg, Basquiat, Calder gouaches, Rothko watercolors and a fascinating a show of Basquiat, Twombly and Schiele works on paper.  I was on my way home but I had Phillips and Christies on my list - their contemporary auctions were last week. and I was so close ...


went into the wrong entrance of Phillips - a small gallery/room at the back of a courtyard - but there were some interesting pieces for an upcoming Latin American auction so I enjoyed those, backed up and walked SMACK into a glass wall I thought was the open door. whew. new meaning to the phrase on the nose. blood. scary much blood.
staff members were helpful with ice pack and water. the starbucks napkins that seem to reproduce of their own volition in my bag helped with the so much blood. my doctor's office suggested i go to a walk-in urgent care facility and from there i ended up at a radiology office for an X-ray. one of the women from Phillips was an angel accompanying me on the odyssey. results the next day: a fracture of some sort, some sort of displacement...couldn't quite translate the doctor's report. 

two days later the otolaryngologist said i will need some surgery once the swelling goes down so i see him in six weeks. as roseanne roseannadanna would say, it's always something.

battery park begins again

drawing the figure down at battery park city on wednesday afternoons from may until october is one of my favorite routines. and having one of my drawings from last year used to illustrate the handout is (even without my credit on the sheet) really satisfying.

back to collage camp

well, art camp, collage class.
from may through october, snow farm in williamsburg massachusetts has workshops in a vast variety of media from ceramics and woodworking to beadmaking, glass blowing, welding, jewelry making, textile art... the accomodations are blissfully rustic, the landscape inspiring and the food great. i wish i could have stayed for another week.

this is the third time i've taken collage with the inspiring alexandra sheldon (who, if you're lucky enough to live near cambridge, mass. does classes at her studio).

you can see my book of photographs of snow farm here (and if you go give my regards to the staff)

and here are some of the collages
