I was feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today because I have a lovely view of my very favorite (and newly finished) mural in the Open Walls Baltimore program from the window of my studio. So so happy!!!

Then I took my phone out to take this photo. And then proceeded to drop my phone and break the glass screen. Now not feeling quite so lucky… But still pretty happy overall.

My friend, the talented animator Phil Davis, made a music video recently for The Spinto Band. It was featured today on NPR’s All Songs Considered blog. The video (and particularly the hand-drawn animation) is amazing! I highly recommend you watch it (by clicking on the All Songs Considered blog link right up there, above this line of text). I also had a fun time trying to pick one of my favorite stills to share with everyone, thanks Phil!

post Baltimore LISTE

This year’s Baltimore LISTE opened last weekend and I’m pleased to be part of it. My work is an animated projection and wall painting, a piece titled Fox’s Misunderstanding: 201. Make sure you go upstairs and all the way to the back to see it!

After installing this show and the show at The Temporary last November, I am enjoying more and more the opportunity to come into a space (whether it be a more traditional gallery setting or something completely nontraditional) and react to it.

The show runs May 9 – May 28. It’s in the old bank building on the corner of Charles St. and Baltimore St. The address is 1 E. Baltimore St. There will be 2 more happenings in the space: May 18, 6:30-9:30pm and May 25, 6:30-9:30pm. Gallery hours are Wed-Sun 12pm-7pm.
