Is there hope for Art as a main industry in Fresno?

I just read this news from Grand Rapids (courtesy of a connection through Twitter):



http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2009/04/rick_devos_unveiling_500000_ar.html



I am wondering: is there hope that something like this could happen in Fresno?



Once in a while, we read about the lady next door who's suddenly donating millions of dollars to her… Continue

Expressions Show?? Where'd it go?

Does anyone recall seeing a posting for a show in Visalia ( I believe it was in Visalia) that was for/based on mental illness, and emotional issues? The name was Expressions, or something of that nature and had an April 30th art drop off deadline and was supposed to have the reception sometime mid-May.

I really wanted to be a part of that and have 2 pieces that would be perfect. Now I can't find anything on it.

Anyone??

My other addiction

I have finished almost a hundred quilts and have lots of boxes with finished blocks ready to turn into quilts. BUT I have changed my addiction to polymer clay. Mostly jewelry.
Channel bracelets are my current favorites, and some quilt jewelry:

I hope to have a web site up soon.

Blue Butterfly



I am in a dream with grace as I have felt late at night as though I am with serenity, finding life with life as I have felt in the days so far in the last, I am in heaven as it was sent to me in the dream I have awaken in, no sound has harmed me has if all noise has stopped just for a moment to be, me flying with wings in the sky above all to be a wish to heal the ill, my wings sparkle of glitter in the future as though I am as they wished, can I find… Continue

It's real, and deadly ,artist friends

Many of you know this happened but many don't



Short story but it just happened to me.

I have asthma and was short of breath 2 months ago...thought my inhaler wasn't working. As some of you know I am an artist and a Thursday night was happily attending an art show. Someone coughed right in my face.

Sunday I couldn't breath well...by the time I got to the Dr it was too late. I made it across the hosp doorway and collapsed =Blood Pressure 70/40. I fought for 2 days trying to… Continue

Selling Digital copies of our work

If musicians can set it up on their web sites so that patrons can download a single song and put in a code so that it can only be copied once or twice after that, why can't visual artists do the same with their work? With the new technology available (and all those plasma screen tvs sitting blank when homeowners are using them) we are missing a valuable opportunity to share our work. Instead of a blank screen, the homeowner could have a beautiful digital image of a photo or painting! Anybody… Continue

What a thrilling sight..to look up at the marquee with lights flashing:

FEATURED ARTIST....JOYBURTON HEISIG
