July Updates…

I shared a spectacular Fourth of July with friends and family in NYC – the most impressive fireworks show yet.

I’m currently in Portland, Oregon celebrating the 34th Annual Patrick Melroy Day.

Flying to Maryland on Sunday for 2 days of Portfolio Reviews at The Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.

The plan for the rest of the summer is to attend the Venice Biennale, the Time Based Arts Festival in Portland, Oregon and the Philadelphia Fringe Festival specifically to see Chunky Move perform. Hopefully that will still allow me some time in the studio.

My Can Telephones:

“Long Distance Relationship”

March and April is an action-packed time in Vermont. It’s Maple Syrup Season and I visited all the Sugar Shacks in the area. I prefer Grade A Medium Syrup.
