Moved Over, Sort Of

I realized I haven't posted to the blog in a very long time. Reason being is that I've focused my efforts on the GC::VA blog. To see more of what's happening in the Art Department at Georgetown and what I'm up to, take a look HERE.

University Open

The annual University Open is back again! The show features work from art students attending KY colleges and universities. This is an outstanding opportunity to submit and show your work and it's FREE! No entry fees. There are 3 cash prizes of $500, $300, and $100. The deadline to submit work is March 14.

Last year a number of Georgetown students were featured in the show. With the work that we are producing in the department, I know we can have another good year. Good luck!

The Washington Post site has a beautiful and interesting collection of "panoramic" images from Tokyo, Japan. Actually, they are interactive, 360 degree captures of twelve unique locations. To see the full collection, click HERE.

Looking the Part

If you haven't seen it yet, one of the cool new things about Mac Mail in Leopard (at least I think so) are the new "stationary" templates you can use for writing email; basically they are HTML emails. Unfortunately 90% of the templates are unusable by professionals; they're mostly fun and cute looking. However, with a little work, you can convert some of the templates and rework them to serve your needs, i.e. looking and being professional.

I found a cool link at a site called TechnoSanity in which Jeff Turner explains how to rework some of the Apple stationary. With a little time in Photoshop and minor HTML knowhow, you can make something you'd be proud to attach your name to and clients will like to see.

Rezny Studio Open House

Mary Rezny has been the greatest influence on my photographic success in Lexington, period. I had the great opportunity to intern for her when I was in grad school and have remained friends ever since. If you recall, she showed work here at Georgetown College in the Fall of 2006. My photo class even took a field trip to visit her.

This Friday she is hosting an open studio/house, featuring her work as well as artist Marco Logsdon. Her studio is located at 903 Manchester Street in the Distillery Art District of downtown Lexington. The event will be from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. Hope to see you there!
