Time for the next evolution!

Well, it’s been a long time coming, and I have been able to accomplish so much in the last few years, however it’s time to focus on my career as an artist.

I have been so fortunate to build two collaborative artist spaces, start a new theatre space and provide a launching pad for many local artists! I have learned a lot about myself and art marketing in our region. One big thing that I have learned I have tried to do too much all at once. That has made it hard for me to be good at the little stuff. It’s also come at the expense of my own growth. That being said, it’s time for a change!

I am in the process of setting up my very own studio/gallery space back in Akron! This space will be smaller than spaces I have operated in the past, but this time I will be the only artist in the space. In this new space I will have a decent size work area, and a little gallery space to showcase my most recent works. Additionally, outside my studio there is a grand hallway that will act as gallery space for me and the others artists in the space. The best part is, I am also located within the area of the Akron art walk!

I can’t wait to have you over for a visit! grand opening is planned for Saturday August 7th, 2010!

Stay tuned for details.

peace out!

What is up 6/11/09

Well, it’s really starting to look like an exciting summer! First of all as you know, XainGO! got off to a rockin start at Playhouse Square. The audience loved the show, and the house manager and ushers were raving about it to the front office folks the next day! I’d say that’s a good start.

Next we are in the process of getting Arts Quest episode 3 in the can, and it’s shaping up to be another entertaining show. Look for that episode to start airing July 1st. That being said the other pilot’s that we are working on are coming together nicely as well!

What a great couple of weeks I’ve enjoyed in the media too!!! In this last month, I was featured on Fox 8 again, then had a photo spread appear in Akron Life and Leisure, I was featured with my film partner Blue, in that AND in a short feature in the West Side Leader. Finally I was also featured in the Hudson Explorer for my work with this years PTA art program. Free press is always a good thing for your art career!

That all being said this summer is off to a great start! I can’t wait to see whatbis next…
