This just-recently-passed E.A.S.T. (east austin studio tour), I received an invite to visit the bungalow/studio of Silky. It had been quite awhile since I’d seen her or her work; years, in fact! So I plotted her location into my bike-steering device and rolled on down the hill… Well, I was pleasantly reassured to see that she is still making ultra-fancy fantasy worlds with handmade-textural and maximally-detailed effects. And oh, the motifs!
Check it out:
I met a new Austin Time Exchange buddy today and cleared some paths in her living labyrinth! Wow, it is amazing. Smells so good, like lemon trees, geraniums, roses, and life.
You’ll have to check her out (Mary Kraemer – Rosa Milagrosa) during E.A.S.T. in 2 weeks!
Also, for those in Austin, TOMORROW -and every 2nd Sunday- there is a social orientation to ATEN (Austin Time Exchange Network) with potluck to follow! If you want to get involved and start trading work hours with other Austinites, come out to Soma Vida (on Rosewood) at 5pm!
And speaking of E.A.S.T., definitely keep an eye on the Co-Lab schedule, for there is going to be a very special week of Happenings there. >heart<
This one was a fun collaboration back-and-forth between myself + Chad. There should be a good little collection of fliers we’ve made together by now.
Man! And I made the puppet show production one, but you’ll have to look at http://www.r-e-r-t.org/puppets or I will scan again. The promotion for that is still evolving. How do you advertise a PROCESS — something that is perpetually in progress, but that requires community connection? (many answers, flowing)
Oo-oo! By the way, Fernando has decided: every Sunday, 3pm: Fence Paint! Anything goes! All ages. Yes!
Anyway, Chad got this other flier whipped out, too:
And, also from the ALF book…
That’s for the “programming” that I will be providing as part of the E.A.S.T. (East Austin Studio Tour) celebration in November, at CoLab (for she’s a jolly good art space).
