new semester, some regional goodies & rambles

As part of my Photography class at SUNY Ulster, I set up a blog to share student work, photo events in the region and other passing art-like thoughts. Check it out here if you have a chance and let us know your thoughts.

On to other things...

I am currently writing my first post from my brand new 27" iMac!!! What an adventure this computer already is turning out to be. Technology like this totally inspires me to be wreckless and crazy! Gotta love it.

For the regional photographers, I would like to share that the Center for Photography at Woodstock's annual fellowship award deadline is approaching. Sept. 20 kids. Free to submit, you just need to live in one of the included counties. See their website here for more info.

I would also like to share with you some amazing jewelry work I have encountered. This kind of design and detail is totally in my frequency. I dig it more than anything I have seen lately. The references in her cut-outs are very much part of the Hudson Valley visual language.

The necklace you see above is part of Myriad Art which is created by regional artist Samantha June. Her etsy shop, with lots of goodies, can be seen here. In addition to being such a talented metal worker, Samantha is also an incredible musician! She sings in the band Desolation Angels. If they play near you---Go see them! Great times!

For now, enter the CPW fellowship and go buy some jewelry for someone you love....
...like me : )
