jealous in washington dc – march 2011

Ahhh… it was a blur of glitter, candy sprinkles, painting, assembling, matting, and a whole lot o’ coffee. Yep the opening of, TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS AS PAINFUL AS IT SEEMS, New Work by Ben Skinner, was everything I’d hoped it would be. I had planned to write this post last week, but honestly I needed a bit of time to come down from the thrill of seeing this show actually come together. Aaaand exhale. Ok, I’m ready. From the 65′ text mural, to the 20′ foam board scaffolding, everything came together perfectly. All of Ben’s work looked amazing, the opening was filled with wonderful/excited people, and I still can’t believe I got to curate my first show with such an incredible artist at a gallery staffed by really, really, really nice people. Thank you Ben, and the Honfleur Gallery. It was an amazing journey. What now? Well, on to the next proposal I guess!

    I wish I could have seen it in person. Congratulations, it looks like it was an amazing exhibit! That’s really foam core scaffolding? Crazy!

    thanks ladies! yep, it really was amazing… and yes, that’s 20′ of foam core. two stories high and only about 10lbs. idea behind it being that rebuidling (especially in the case of a community in the middle of some major gentrification) can be a delicate matter, and if you’re not careful, everything could come crashing down. brilliant.

    It wasn’t a subtle rejection either.

It’s a brilliant strategy to LIE and say they won’t be governed by “fact checkers”. And when the media calls them out they just say they are biased like they always have been Throw in some voter ID laws in some key states and voila Romney wins Cynical but effectiveDems / Obama team here is some free advice – You had better have our candidate forcefully make the case that he clearly believes that we are on a path which is fiscally unsustainable The republicans OWN this argument (and ironically most of the responsibility for the deficit by the way but who’s counting) If Obama cannot AGAIN articulate clearly what his plans were that were thwarted by the house or what his revised plans are to reduce the debt you had better get used to saying president RomneyLike the republicans have on medicare (inexplicably) the dems have to fight this war on republican turf and go hard at outlining the deficit reduction plan so everyone understands the democrats aren’t just a bunch of whiners protecting the lazy folks out there and they are serious about tackling the debt Unlike Paul Ryan – who was a laughable little frat geek last night Presidential Not so muchRice’s speech was presidential – I disagreed with the trillions of dollars she wants to spend that we don’t have to be the police of the world however what a contrast with the petulance of Ryan But I digressLastly get the flip-flop archives out showing Romney taking both sides of every key issue over the last 8 years and all the footage of Ryan lying into the camera Two straight months of it You can’t be the president if you don’t have core beliefs and you can’t be vice president if you are a straight up documented liarLet’s get to work dems They have some deeeeep pocketsObama / Biden 2012Trust me – he may win it if the dems don’t punch in.
