NEXT POST; What am I working on?
Pre-Views of The Year in Review;
December 29, 2015
After a very rocky end of year...2016 is shaping up to be one of the most important years of my professional career. Several avenues that have been set in place after a very long period of time, are now poised to be manifested. Among them is a new gallery.
Sometimes I have so many things going on simultaneously, I have trouble keeping up with myself. During this past year an attempt was made to prioritize my projects into what I refer to as my "13 Point Plan". In short, it is the outline for the rest of my 'life's work'. Since my 're-integration" in 2002, certain projects have been in the works and evolving over the past ten to fifteen years. Major escalations in these projects were made in 2015 that have brought several to the 'next level". Since the origins of this web site in 1997 (Yes! this web site is going on 19 years!), it has served not only as an informational source, but as a 'virtual outline for physical manifestation". All ideas begin with a thought. My thoughts are then formulated, constructed, outlined, prioritized, then envisioned here 'first'. In a 'virtual reality'. I then use this virtual reality to construct 'my physical reality', at least with my professional creative projects. Yet, it is a personal creative process.
Here is another 'snipit' of coming attractions in 2016 that have been in development for a long long time.
In 2013. I had the honor to create the cover for the Newburyport Yankee Homecoming program book. The experience provided ample opportunity to learn about the not only the festival but the history of its creators and the city itself. At the end of the festival, I had submitted a writing that was used by that years chairperson as her introduction in the program book. Along with it, I provided a press release explaining the symbolic significance of the cover design, as well as a brief personal message and tribute to Jack Frost . This message was an 'ode to the creators' of the festival as well as a warning to those involved with the festival in the near future concerning the 'corporatization of Yankee Homecoming festival, Newburyport's largest and most well known yearly celebration. This message turns out to be very pertinent in light of what was to happen at last years event. This was the headlines in the Newburyport daily newspaper on Saturday, August 1, 2015.
Inn Street Blues - August 1, 2015
When the festival ended I forwarded this message to Greg Nikas of Sweethaven Gallery, who then shared some of it on the Newburyport Commons online community blog which literally erupted with community comments in regard to the newspaper article.
A Major Positive Spin
In details that I will elaborate on further in time, ultimately this resulted in the formation of a new Yankee Homecoming Inn Street Artisan Revival Committee.
More specifics to be posted next year! Happy New year!!. Please stay tuned.
