As the more creative days of summer come to a close, it is time to note things that will make my life a bit hectic in the next two months. First, it's back to teaching, even if only half time. This past year I've realized how much I want to work on my art and begin to sell my art, but also how much I am ready to move on from being an associate professor. Overall, I like the students but am not that enamored of the growing academic bureaucracy and the continued narrowing of what is acceptable and not acceptable to say or create or do.
I have two shows coming up as well. First, The Gateway to the Rockies Art Show opens September 27, with the opening reception on October 6th. It runs through November 11th at the Aurora History Museum in Aurora Colorado. Then, on October 19th, it's the opening for People, Spaces and Places, an art exhibit I am curating and participating in at The Gallery in the Driscoll Student Building. All of my pieces are printed, though I still need to give them a bit of quality control look see. Then, it's time to get them framed, labeled, etc.
