Entry: Paper Dolls hanging from the sky and other art adventures Thursday, September 16, 2010



So, I am sitting here at this computer looking at the 6 drafts of entries I never posted from the past few months and feeling a mix of guilt (abandoned blogger's guilt is nothing new, right, a little lame even for me) and realization. I have spent the past few months working on projects more personal than public, more transitory and tentative than solid. It takes a real something to say to get me to bliggity blog it...

How about my first really rewarding art project in the form of dozens of paper dolls at the public market...

I'll explain. Here in Rochester, the Public Market is a wonderful farmer's market/ public marketplace and once a year they designate a Sunday for Artist's Row . For the past three years, I've had a booth, or rather, a stall. This year I'm in 58. Some innovative, funny, smart, truly talented and hardworking artists will surround me on every side. They have about 160 vendors this year and the Friends of the Public Market (the non-profit who puts the show on) do all sorts of great things for artists. Not only are the booth fees very low, but there is set-up help and all sorts of small kindnesses. Artist's Row is Sunday September 19 from 10 to 4 (well, I have to get their early to set up all the dolls!)... Come by if you can!

Another small kindness/ insight into making...another art adventure rescued from one of those dead-in-the-water draft entries...

This year I had the pleasure of participating in a Self-Portrait project designed to see what Rochester looks like, it's called Art Drop . My self portrait is on the fence in front of the Memorial Art Gallery (disclosure, I happily work there) until it comes down (don't think they've decided that yet but I think it's probably soon). The very talented photographer Will Yurman interviewed me and 5 other artists about our portraits in very cool little videos there...

I'll try, once this little excitement subsides to be better about regularly speaking up in this blog. You're reading it after all, and I care what you think...

best,
Rachael

1 other fashion occupation which you could be fascinated by is being the operator and operator of the fashion store. Vogue shops can be found in all numerous dimensions, shapes, and variations. There are some fashion shops that focus on a particular variety of garments, like beautiful night use, and people who supply all different types of fashions for all totally different consumers, like guys, women, and young people. You also possess the solution of advertising your very own models, if you're vogue designer, or investing in other designer's items to provide inside your stores, no matter whether there're internet based outlets, offline stores, or both. A second style vocation that may be of curiosity to you is a trend consultant. The clientele of vogue consultants are sometimes ones who're uncertain about what to put on for just a new task, a career interview, an stylish dinner, a wedding, or a second significant event.

By realizing we have things in our lives that are worthy of thanks, it helps keep us from becoming mired down in self pity.

If all people learned to think in the non-Aristotelian manner of quantum mechanics, the world would change so radically that most of what we call "stupidity" and even a great deal of what we consider "insanity" might disappear, and the "intractable" problems of war, poverty and injustice would suddenly seem a great deal closer to solution.

Ya, it has been awhile :) I have followed your blog for well 2 years now and always enjoy your offerings.
I don't have any artistic eye or skills whatsoever but I'll tell you what really enjoy your work! Someday I am gonna buy sumpin from you and impress my friends :)
I happened upon a book about, Gromaire and fell in love with his stuff and call me crazy but I see some similarities in styles?
Anyhow just wanted to let you know that you do indeed have a faithful following.

Respectfully,
Garth
