The Importance of Studio Visits

Julie and John come to visit in St. Paul, 2011

Studio visit is a word that you will hear over and over again while in grad school (when you’re out in the real world as well), but it would be a good idea to actually know what that term means and why it’s important to being an actively exhibiting artist.

That New New

In preparation for my residency in Portland, Oregon this coming fall, I have finally begun to photograph a project that has been on my mind for a while. Instead of waiting to begin the project until I was actually in Portland, I figured I would get a head start on it.

Beginning An Edition

So, in the last blog post I had mentioned my taking on of an intern for the month of June. While I have been putting her to work doing some of the housekeeping things (writing up inventory lists of equipment for insurance, organizing digital files, and so on) that I don’t have the will to finish, we have also been discussing a newsprint edition that I had been interested in making. Well, add it to the list.

I’m Done! So…What Now?

Three years ago, I began my MFA journey at Columbia. Now, as of a few days ago, that part of my life is finished. But, for me, the MFA and my time at Columbia was just a smaller part of a larger journey, one that will continue. And I have a lot planned.

Experimental Imaging

Over in the photography department, we are lucky to have a chair that is interested in experimenting. This semester, the Digital Imaging Pod opened on the 9th floor of the 600 Michigan building. It is filled with all sorts of goodies.

Digital Publishing POD

This semester there was an interesting option available when registering for classes. Something called a POD was available. It was all about using the app platform to create a digital magazine. This was something I couldn’t pass up.

Interesting Evening at MoCP

My first day of the Spring semester was a long one. This was mostly because there was a new show up at MoCP (which is in the bottom of the photo building) and to go along with that new show, there was a panel discussion with two of the artists (which made up a collective) that had work in the show. The panel also included Columbia faculty and recent selection for the Whitney’s Biennial Dawoud Bey and the Ren’s Hamza Walker. In short, it was not something I was about to miss.

It just so happens that this time of year there are an awful lot of grants that are open for submission. I am currently busy trying to get all the materials together for the submissions. I thought I would spend this blog post going over some of them that are available.
