Back to the Wild West: Big Things Are Afoot

It seems that this blog, which started as a log of my everyday thought process, has increasingly replaced regular process and “what’s new” content, with sporadic major announcements. Today, I want to share with you all a big one…

 

After 5 years living and working in Portland Maine and at the Maine College of Art, a brief spell teaching in New Bedford Mass, a semester in residence at UW Madison, and a whole lot of fun times back in the Northeast, it’s time to move along and begin a new journey. Continue reading

Teachening update

This past week, I taught a week-long workshop for MECA’s continuing studies program. The class was made up of six students, from high school age and up. The only thing this group had in common was their lack of experience with furniture making techniques and woodworking on a finer level. The class, which Continue reading

Hello all, and welcome back to SnarkAttack. I haven’t posted much of late because things have been a whirlwind since about midway through my four month stint in Madison Wisconsin as Windgate Artist in Residence in the Furniture Program there. A lot has happened.

Craftening in The Bostons

So last week we brought our majors down the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, where they were invited to participate in Craft Boston for the second consecutive year. It was a mad rush getting the booth down there and setting up last minute, but they rocked it and got plenty of great feedback.

Here is photographic proof in case you don’t believe me:

Bird Head Masks On Fire

Rebecca's work and Yona cast big shaddows

It’s been a busy few days with all kinds of shows and work and lectures to see. On Thursday, our resident artist BA Harrington gave a lecture on her work on campus. there was a decent turn out but unfortunately, there was a lecture at the downtown gallery at the same time so a lot of faculty attended that instead. But, the lecture was informative and fun and the group went out and made fools of ourselves at a local pizza place packed with sporty college students. Continue reading

Kurt Vile

tonight, during my daily internet time wasting session, I came across a review of a new Kurt Vile album that I didn’t even know was in the works. Its called “Smoke Ring for my Halo” and here is the glowing review from pitchfork. Now, I try not to take everything pitchfork says too seriously, but, its rare that they get this excited about a new release so I’m pretty excited to hear what he’s done. It took me a while to start liking Kurt Vile but it really grew on me. its got a great space to it. Good late night studio stuff. We got to see him solo and acoustic at M-theory records in Mission Hills last fall. Continue reading

Talking “Helter Shelter”

So last night we had a grad critique on the theme of shelter that most everyone (Although I’ve worked a lot within this theme, I’m kind of doing my own thing at this point) has been working on for the past five weeks or so. It was a good crit and I took pictures of it for your viewing enjoyment. Continue reading
