For an artist, the studio is a home for their heart.

From September 9 – 21, 2008, The ARTS Project will be showcasing Residents/ce; this year's incarnation of the annual resident artists' exhibition. Featuring our 5 current resident artists Brian Dirks, Axl T. Ernst, Valda-Christine Glennie, David Lindsay and Rob Nelson, this is an unique opportunity to view selected works from the artists - work which we create in the studio spaces we call home above the gallery.

An opening reception will be held on Tuesday,  September 9th from 7-9 pm and I would like to encourage you and your friends through this open invitation to come out that night and share with us this celebration of our time with The ARTS Project. I also encourage you to forward this email to anyone and everyone who may be interested coming out and viewing the works and enjoying the atmosphere with fellow friends and artists alike.

Thank you, and I hope to see you there!

#N09 on Ebay

I really don't have much to say lately do I! I'm a bit of a bum.

Here are my major projects that I'm working on:

-Working on 3 new 4x4 foot pieces for the upcoming annual resident artist show here at The ARTS Project. These will hopefully be finished around or near this weekend. The show runs from Sept 9-21st with an opening reception on Sept 9th from 7-9 pm. I'll officially post it later.

-Doors Open weekend is coming up: I will be participating with an open studio component, since our entire building will be on tour for that weekend. Sept 20 and 21st.

-Working on helping curate an upcoming group exhibition in October which I will also be participating in - self portraits are the theme.

-I've been invited to be one of the first artists to take place in a pilot project here at The ARTS Project which will involve a mini show of outdoor instillation work to hang in front of our building. I'm researching and mentally preparing for the 6 pieces that I will create for this.

-I may be involved this year in a large group exhibition called Art Quest which will also run in October.

-I have work up for charity auction/draw type fund raising event here also at The ARTS Project in Art Frenzy. The work will also be exhibited in the main gallery from September 22 - 27, 2008.

-I am brainstorming my next big series of work and looking at galleries to exhibit it in.

Dear So and So

argh internets.

i spent all day working on the in good company festival thing with sandra. exciting but now that i am back on my own computer trying to do internet shit, it is so slow nothing will upload.

i really love this place but i really really hate it. Right now I'm having major jitters. The renovations are going to start soon - there are people cutting holes in the floor and ceiling and checking everything out. They are right outside my studio over that little staircase.

I'm really feeling uncomfortable with all of this, and now it is hitting me more than ever. I really want TAP to renovate and get what it needs to stay functioning. But my studio is going to majorly be altered... I don't think I'm comfortable with it...

My wall is moving 3 feet, and they are putting a corridor in the end where my door is... so I'm loosing like 4 or 5 over there and one of my windows.... this won't even be my place.

Getting really sick of just bouncing and moving. Whenever I make a home for myself I get kicked out or massively shifted around. I'm at the mercy of everyone. I hate how my studio is the only one effected. Except Rob. But he is never here anyway so that doesn't count.

Anyway i had to vent. I need to go find a fucking computer to do an ebay listing that no one will purchase. Death to everything.

I hope things are good for you.!
