|COINCIDENTAL DUCHAMPISM AND SPICY LANGUAGE|
This weekend I went to the, "Arts Of
the Valley" exhibit at Open Square
. The work was spectacular and I was further
especially impressed with the HCC student work on the second floor. The show is
still up and I would suggest a visit before it comes down. The faculty and
invited artist work on the fourth floor will be up till June 1 but I think the
student work comes down soon. I think clearly the art staff at HCC is doing
something special. I went back saturday to see it all again. It is a fucking
great show, ALL of it.
Wow. I have never used that word here before. I
must love that show. Go see it tomorrow. And Ricky, the crazyman at the Black
Sheep Deli at Open Square, makes a killer vertical pile of coffee with a shot of
espresso. Sometimes I go there for lunch and have a Key Lime Pie. Not *some* Key
Lime Pie, but *a* Key Lime Pie. They are small-ish and excellently lime-y
and graham cracker crust-y. It's also fucking great.
through the second floor marvelling at all the student work reminded me of that
scene in, "Six Degrees of Separation", when the Donald Sutherland character guy
has a dream where he is walking through a kindergarten classroom and is totally
blown away by all the kids' paintings and he begs (BEGS) their teacher to tell
him her secret and she smiles knowingly (and somewhat patronizingly) and says,
"I know when to take their paints away".
I inserted a picture of my
piece, "Urinal" here because I have a picture of it. To the right of me is a
brilliant piece by Larry Slezak which, totally coincidentally (like unplanned,
like when you wear the same outfit as your friend but you didn't plan it), has a
Duchampian theme, and I have images of that but I am saving them for tomorrow's
post on my blog at the Valley Advocate website
. So you'll have to check that
link tomorrow to see his chess game installation. It's pretty fucking great too.
That word feels like a new toy and I feel liberated using that word. But I don't
want to beat a dead bad word so I am done. It's safe to read on
Friday night at the reception I was telling a few people about
getting my postcards printed for my next show and everyone was totally amazed by
how fast and cheap I am getting them done and asked if I would pretty please put
the information right here for all to share and so I will as this is a great
resource for all of us.
For years now I have been using a company called
Get Set Marketing
. I don't know where I found them. Someone
must have told me about them. Their prices are the (f-ing) best I have seen and
for your price you get full color, full bleed on BOTH sides, printed within 5
days. If you get your art to them by Monday at 10 am, your postcards are ready
that Friday afternoon. I usually get 1000 4 x 6 and this costs $235. Two thirty
So, I put images on both sides since I can. This is not a
freaking chain or a big company but two brothers, Dan and Joe Bessette and a few
very nice employees located in Springfield. For my next show I am splashing out
on jumbo 8.5 x 5.5 cards and I am using them as sort of a brochure. I am
splashing out on quantity and getting 5000 because the Springfield MFA, where my
show is, is giving me a holder outside the Barn Gallery where my work is, to
place postcards. All this must cost a frigging fortune you say? No. $465. So
there it is. And the quality is pretty effin' great.
And I don't work for
them but I do really appreciate how fast and cheap and excellent and nice they
are. And I promised Larry and Eva and a few other people I would share this info
here and so there it is, among the language.

ART EXCHANGE: WORKS FROM LYN HORAN AND HER
05/05/2007 - 06/01/2007
Artists Reception Sat. May 5, 4-7PM
Art Exchange: The Artist as Teacher and Student.
Internationally exhibited artist, Lyn Horan showcases her latest work along
with work from her adult students in an attempt to examine the creative
relationship between the artist/teacher and her students.
"The art of teaching is part of assisting discovery." This quote
from Pulitzer Prize winning Poet, Mark Van Doren, sums up Artist Lyn Horan's
teaching philosophy. While Horan feels that teaching pictorial skills, use of
materials, and knowledge of art history is important, helping her students find
the courage to hone their observations and individual self-expression is a
greater part of the equation. "My job as a teacher is not to create artists who
paint just like me, but to help them discover how to best create something that
is genuine to them."
With works from Lisa Colt, Helen Daniels,
Terry Faivre, Marilyn Marquez, Joanne O'Leary, Keri Oleson, Maryann Phoenix,
Marge Tauer, and of course LYN

J.S. BACH: HIS FOREBEARS, FAMILY AND
Pioneer Valley Cappella Choral Concert
05/18/07 - 05/19/07
Time: 7:30 pm
Pioneer Valley Cappella's Spring concerts explore Johann Sebastian Bach:
what influenced his work, and his continuing influence on other composers.
The central work on the program is his magnificent motet, Jesu,
meine Freude. Born into one of Germany's leading musical families, Bach
blended traditional German music with new trends from Italy and France. Our
program traces this progress with works of Pachelbel, Frescobaldi, Couperin, and
two of J. S. Bach's cousins (Johann Ludwig and Johann Christoph).
by Villa-Lobos and a
hauntingly austere series of Haiku poems set by Peter Schickele (alter ego of
Bach's last and least son, P.D.Q.) demonstrate J.S. Bach s persistent musical
prominence. Geoffrey Hudson, director, conducts in his farewell
performance with the Pioneer Valley Cappella.

Saturday, May 19 at Wistariahurst Museum

ONLINE FOR ART WALK EASTHAMPTON
Art Walk Easthampton, a monthly, self-guided
walking tour of arts and culture, has added a proposal page to its website where
visual, music and performance artists can outline what they would like to show
or perform if given the opportunity.
All the locations that participate
in Art Walk Easthampton can view the submissions for possible inclusion in an
upcoming event. The talent describes the work, provides images, identifies the
types of venues they would like to be in, the dates they are available and
provides contact information. If there's a match between the submission and the
venue's interest, the venue contacts the talent directly to handle booking
The proposal form is available at www.ArtWalkEasthampton.org and is open to all local and
from Joe Blumenthal of Downtown Sounds who generously would like to have artists
display their work there. (Downtown Sounds, 21 Pleasant St., Northampton, next
to the Pleasant St. Theater)
The window is quite large, and has three
panels, each one about 6' X 6', and is about 24" deep. It is exposed to intense
sunlight in the morning; the heat of the sun plus the narrowness of the window
make it inappropriate to display most musical instruments.
sunlight doesn't hurt most artwork since it's only exposed for a month to six
weeks. I normally pay $150 to the artist who installs the window, and work out a
consignment agreement for the store to take a percentage of the price if the art
is for sale and we manage to sell some of it.
The artwork can be
freestanding, lean against a wall at the back of the window that's about three
feet high, or (if it's not heavy) be hung from the ceiling.
It's great when
the art can have a musical theme, but it's not necessary. Because of its highly
visible commercial location, the work should have a mainstream appeal and not
have themes which could be offensive. Small pieces don't work well since the
window is so large.
If one of your readers is interested in displaying
in this context, please have them contact me via email:
firstname.lastname@example.org, or via phone at 413- 586-0998.

FREE CREDIT COUNSELING FOR LOCAL
Valley CDC Expands Business Services to Include Credit
Counseling Northampton, MA,
March 23, 2007: Valley Community
Development Corporation (Valley CDC), a community-based non-profit organization,
is now offering personal credit counseling. This free one-on-one counseling is
available to people who want to open a small business in Valley CDC's service
area - Easthampton, Northampton, Hadley & Amherst. Current small business
owners with 20 or fewer employees are also eligible. There are no income
restrictions. This free credit counseling is available through June of 2007 via
a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Business and Technology.
According to David Plaut, Small Business Credit Counselor for Valley CDC,
"We know that credit scores play a very significant role when applying for a
business loan. We want our clients to secure financing, so we set them up for
success. Credit reports and credit scoring can be confusing. We can decipher
that information and help people boost their scores."
Valley CDC has been helping entrepreneurs start new enterprises and
expand existing small businesses for more than 18 years. Since 2003, Valley CDC
has counseled more than 250 individuals and businesses, and helped them acquire
more than $470,000 in funding from conventional banks and community loan funds.
Valley CDC's clients include companies in many diverse businesses, including
restaurants, manufacturers, beauty salons, spas, artists and artisans, clothing
designers, and retailers.
According to Joanne Campbell, Executive Director of Valley CDC, "We are
very excited to be able to expand our small business technical services to
include credit counseling. Our current grant will fund this service until June
30, 2007, so we hope that local entrepreneurs act on this opportunity quickly.
We are also hopeful that the legislature will recognize the economic benefits
that all Massachusetts communities gain from their investment in local
entrepreneurs and small businesses, and continue to fund the program beyond that
For more information about credit counseling, please contact David Plaut,
Small Business Credit Counselor at 413-586-5855 x16 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
PEOPLE AND STUFF
THIS SECTION OFFICIALLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION
I very recently
switched to this new template. It did not convert my old template
and tech help at Constant Contact confirmed that I need to
move all my information over myself. Most of it, like text
data, can be cut and pasted. But the links, which originated
from an entry into a constant contact template, are assigned
trackback URLs which allow for comparative metrics and this
causes crazy things to happen. So I am starting this section
over, as I already did with the rest of the newsletter, to
fit into the new template. When I paste links in one at a
time the link name appears as the URL plus the trackback data
And when I try to
paste the whole list at once it deletes all the URL data and becomes a list of
links to nothing, sort of like an excremental link. So, I am going through an
old URL list and clicking on each link and then copying the link name and target
into this space. So It will be under construction for a bit.
Just look at what
this template has doen to my font sizes all over this newsletter. They are all
over the place and out of control. And I know what I am doing but this template
has other ideas. Maybe by next week I will be once again master of the
formatting of this newsletter but for now, I throw up my hands and have a call
in to tech help.
