New Rules.

Whew, I can't believe that I have to create new rules for my studio practice, but some time back I started to feel stranded in the artistic hole I had dug for myself. So, in order to create some new energy (pathways) I wrote some "new rules" to work by while I'm creating my art. Yeah, It sounds dumb, but I was surprised by how often I looked to that list when doubt or fear creep into my practice. It helps, if nothing else its something to aim my brush at when I loose my cool.

It’s funny how one part of my life has come full circle since my studio visit with the Studio Museum in Harlem. In 2006 I travelled to SMH to speak with Lowery Stokes Sims, then their executive director, and left with the feeling that much more work and scholarship needed to be done.  I met with SMH’s newest associate curator Connie Choi and assistant curator Hallie Ringle and felt good about it. Of course there is always work to do, but I feel much closer. Twins (2017) is now part of their permanent collection! Thelma Golden before Twins Nobody’s Darling: Women and Representation at UT Austin’s Christian-Green gallery continues over the course of this summer and concludes on August 4, 2017. As I’ve said, I’m thrilled to have support in Austin and am as happy to see varying interest across the US. I will participate in the 2017 Art on the Vine atMart…
