sooo there is an art exhibit at the contemporary art center of virginia. It’s called NewWaves2009 and will feature up and coming local artists. the deadline to submit work to the show is this friday. All i really need to do is put at least 3 images on a cd and fill outa form, but the entrance fee is $55. And that’s just to get judged if your good enough.
so at the moment i’m on the fence… it would be awesome to get chosen, it’s a really nice gallery!! but i don’t know how my work would stand up to the compitition… my stuff rarely recieved good critiques in studio classes, and $55 is a lot to pay to have someone tell you “no thanks”
“I bought the wrong Carefree Panty Sheilds but I don’t want to throw them away. I have 26 Long Regular Panty Sheilds left over. They are in a Ziplock Baggie inside of a Petsmart bag on my front porch. They are of course clean but I have a little container I put them in so I don’t have the box. Please come and get them.”—Craigslist posting, under FREE
its nice to know that people are lookinggg at thissss
anywho, i started teaching this past week, first day was on tuesday. here is a quick summery:
i am “art-on-a-cart” (for those who dont know what this is, i have no classroom, i go from class to class with a cart full of art supplies and try my best to make it work)
The school i am in is VERY poor, it is in the heart of norfolk. if you know norfolk - i am in a neighborhood right across from the Scope. Every student lives in that neighborhood, they all walk, no busses, and every single student is black. There are 3 exceptions to that, and they are all the computer teacher’s children. I am learning things quickly, and making mistakes quickly. I am intimidated by a lot of my fellow teachers, but trying my best not to show it!
I am gonna be more on top of blogging„ cuz there are gonna be a lot of crazy funny things to share. **stay tuned**
“If art contains a saving power, it is not in the atomized artworks produced by individual subjects, but in a deeper collective vision that sees the world as a work of art, one that is already… perfect in its ‘satisfying all-at-onceness’”—Daniel Pinchbeck - 2012 (via jennymarie)
