In July, I was juried into the Studio Gallery, DC's longest running, artist-owned gallery in the area. Twenty-nine years and running. Featuring contemporary work and located in the prestigious Embassy Row section of the Dupont Circle, thirty-one local, professional artists exhibit in solo and group shows in addition to invitationals or juried exhibitions.

Gallery Hours
Wednesday and Thursday, 1 - 7pm
Friday, 1 - 8pm
Saturday, 1 - 6pm

My own presence is not yet on the studio website due to a very busy schedule (see previous blog entry) since the jurying process, but I will be represented soon. I look forward to a long and compelling tenure with this very charming collective.

My special thanks to Adah Rose, Marina, Micheline, and Yvette, each for your terrific advocacy during the jury process.

P.S. Adah Rose Bitterbaum told me that I was juried in a unanimous vote, the first time she had seen that happen in her several years as Director there. A 9-7, 10-6 vote pattern was more the norm. I was flattered.Stunned, and suspicious. Why? Adah Rose immediately fled to Paris, which was a great disappointment to me. I wanted very much to work with her. Yvette bought two paintings from me. Marina became Director of the SG for a year until Adah Rose returned, a return which was short-lived, as she soon left to launch her own gallery. Micheline and Yvette remain at Studio Gallery as of this edit in November, 2013. My own membership was cut short in early 2009 for as the economy plunged in liberal chaos. I also left 52 O Street Studios, and landed in Loudoun County where I painted for two year, but have since 2011 taken time to bring other aspects of my artistic presentation and Project Scenewash into view.

The following note was zipped off to somebody, now I'm thinking Marina Reiter since everyone else I can think it applicable is listed within. The show I hoped to get didn't come through until the following September. I enjoyed the show, had a great crowd of friends at the meet and greet, but sold nothing.

Yes, I mean no. It's not a confirmed done deal, but as we were all standing at the CP Metro, Dana said it was as good as a done deal. She said this with confidence. Late, it was after one when we left. In bed by two. I was up at five. Awoke from bizarre nightmare, couldn't get back to sleep.

I too, am energized, given the fact that I am dragging butt. My head feels like it NEEDS to explode for clarity and relief, et cetera. No energy to suffer Georgetown tonight, sorry. Inertia will keep me in studio working, but it's pretty nasty out there. Was sleeting about mid-day. Bought some varnish today, some paint, and a few more canvases.

Hope to hear from Sesow soon. If not, I'll be seeing Dana probably Wednesday to pick up paintings. I can't believe I bought that second one. One for Sue. One for me. Poor for the holidays. Scratch our tentative holiday getaway to Massachusetts.

Oh well, Dana deserves.
