XC Hits PDX!
I've been awfully good lately...working, teaching, arting, and crafting, so it's no wonder that my karma seems to be doing okay (knock on wood). SPPPRRRRIIIINGGGGG BREEEEEAAAAAAKKKKK! I decided to spend my spring break this year in sunny Portland, Oregon. With a little financial assistance from my peeps at Columbus State University, I'm off tomorrow to attend the NCECA (National Conference for Education for the Ceramic Arts) Conference. It's going to be a clay geekfest, with dozens of exhibions, demonstrations, lectures, etc. Of particular interest to me is the Akio Takamori mid-career retrospective at the Art Gym. There is also a biennial invitational show at Lewis and Clark University where I am showing a piece.
Most excitingly, Microcosm Publishing, Portland zine distro extraordinaire is having its 10th Birthday Celebration! Join Microcosm at Liberty Hall from March 10-12 for D.I.Y. demos of all stripes, vegan birthday cake, and a giant slumber party. Sister Diane (of Craftypod Fame) just posted an interview with Joe Biel, founder of Microcosm. Did I srite something about karma earlier? It's going to be 49 degrees, rainy, and windy the whole time. I've been good, but obviously not that good.
