CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE: AN EXHIBITION WITHOUT BORDERS
Objects play an important part in our lives, just as they did for Chicago artist and teacher Ray Yoshida in the form of his home collection, which is on view September 22 through March 2, 2014, as part of THE OPEN EYE series at the Arts Center. This exhibition centers on the ways in which objects spark memories and evoke places.
The exhibition will be on view in the Community Gallery from November 10, 2013–January 5, 2014.

For the next month or so, I will be teaching at the Hubei University of Technology on behalf of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. There is a great group of international instructors and some really fun and dedicated students here, and I am lucky to know and work with them all. The faculty and staff at HBUT have also been very generous with their time and assistance. I am even planning to make some work while I am here, so stay tuned!
In just a few hours, I will be hopping a jet over to Savannah, Georgia to attend and present at the Foundations in Art: Theory and Education Biennial Conference.
Here is the abstract for my panel:
Engaging ‘Their’ Platform: Building Digital Media and culture into Foundations
Foundations students are visually savvy representatives of digital culture. This session will introduce ways to encourage young art students to utilize their creativity using digital platforms. This discussion is intended for instructors who have been hesitant to introduce digital aspects of art, or are actively seeking ways to incorporate digital media into their curriculum.
I have been invited to present upcoming workshop sponsored by the Cedarburg Artists Guild. For this event we will be focusing on the key tools of the visual artist for finding opportunities and increasing visibility. We will review exhibition opportunity resources, discuss marketing and networking strategies, and consider important tips for sharing digital portfolios.
The program is free and will be held the evening of March 7th from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the Event Loft at the Family Farm, Grafton. A small donation is suggested for non-members.
