I love listening to artists talk. I feel very lucky to live very close to Mills College and enjoy the opportunity to hear their visiting artists’ lectures. Last week I heard Leslie Shows who will also be in conversation with Lawrence Rinder, the Director of Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive on Wednesday, December 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 at Haines Gallery. Talk is at 6:00 p.m. She was quite articulate and left an impression on me. I’m looking forward to seeing her work in person. Her strong interest in materials is reflected in her work.
Afterward, I was in the hallway looking at the promotional art mailers on the wall and a postcard of James Gayles caught my eye. I know James through the Artists Engaged critique group. I had never thought of sending one of my promotional postcards to art schools but what a great idea. Thanks James! I’ve put my cards out at art supply stores, on the community board where I go food shopping, cafes, galleries, but yah, now I’m adding art schools and art centers. You just never know how people will find you.
