I was in Mobile last weekend for the SECAC conference. We had a great time. I chaired a panel with Katherine Fields- "I love you now leave- Desire and Repulsion in the Visual Arts". I handled the concept side and Katherine talked about Materials. Here are some photos from the trip.
Sheri and Tom Lee's Show at Spring Hill College. What a great space!
Another view of Sheri's artist talk at the Eicholdt Gallery.
Here is a view of my piece, "Flamin' Painting" at the Art in Academia show at Space 301 in Mobile. Again, I love this exhibition space- it is huge. Below are some of the strong pieces that I saw.
Barb Bondy, Opelika, AL
detail of Clive King's piece. It won first prize.
Aurora Pope's painting- she is an old friend from Greeneville, TN. She just graduated from ETSU.
Misty Bennett, Montevallo, AL- I think really contemporary watercolor is very interesting.
Julia Morrisroe, Gainesville, FL
Well, I am back in Oxford. Here is a view of the drawing room last Tuesday. I have 1400 drawings to grade for my Drawing 2 students. I need to remember that I have grade what I assign.

I create the Boo the Bat for my godson's birthday. They are so cute- I might have to make one for myself.
My dining room table has been invaded by some drawings. I have been making these drawings for years. Most of them are just silly ideas that don't warrant a large painting. Seeing them all together makes me want to show them. Who knows....
Here is an update on the classy painting. It is coming along. It will definitely be done in the next month. I will be showing it at the University Museum in my solo show, January 12- March 6, 2010. The fall is so frustrating- there are so many things going on. Studio time is very precious this time of the year!
I am off to BFA interviews. I have several former students who are going up for it this year.
