More More Good News

I head back from the McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, NC yesterday,  and it looks like I will be one of their artists-in-residence next fall!  I can't tell you how excited I am for that opportunity, I'm actually a little bummed that I have to wait a whole year for it. Basically, my responsibilities will include: being in my studio for 4 hours a daynand devising an art-themed community outreach program of my choosing.  For that, I receive an art studio and efficiency apartment for three months, as well as a nice little stipend.
Just a few, short weeks ago, I sat here at my table feeling pretty useless.  I was on unemployment, didn't have any job prospects and had even filled out a food stamp application. I was pretty much sure that I'd only be able to find some menial, part-time job, that the adjunct positions would be a long time coming and it would take years to be accepted to a residency. Now, I have all three taken care of. When it rains it pours!

More Good News

As of Aug. 24, 2010, I will be a college instructor again!

Possible Good News

I know it's been a while since I blogged, but the summer had been largely uneventful in terms of artistic production.  I had been unemployed for two months, but that was remedied this past Friday when I accepted a position as a school portrait photographer!  It's not exactly what I had envisioned doing post-grad school, but it is a fun job nonetheless.  A more exciting job opportunity may be headed my way as an adjunct photo teacher at a community college, so keep you fingers crossed for me.
So, as I've been pathetically broke of late, there has been no art to speak of, however,  I was notified of my finalist standings for a certain paid artist residency. If I make it, it'll be art, art, art for three months on the East coast! God knows I need that time to improve.  This workaday lifestyle is for the birds!
