I got the good news that I am one of eight artists being considered for a residency at the Stutz. This opportunity equates to awesome free studio space at a great location for a year. I feel really lucky just to be a finalist because Indy has a ton of amazing artists competing with one another. I've heard some artists talk about how they think there is a shortage of like minded fellow artists. I have to disagree with this because I personally know of gobs of great artists. AND I love Indy.
Speaking of amazing artists, one that I show with on occasion told me about an urgent position that needed to be filled for a "Wine and Canvas"-ish type class Monday night at the Indiana State Fair. The teacher had backed out on short notice. So long story short, I will be teaching people how to paint a beautiful landscape while they drink. Sounds like fun!
