Saturday, May 6 - Flying Adventures Reading at the International Women's Air & Space Museum
As part of the International Women's Air & Space Museum's Family Day celebration, they'll be rolling out the red carpet for a Flying Adventures reading from 10:30-11am. The community event, themed "Soaring into the Future," begins at 10am and continues until 2pm, with exhibits, activities, and entertainment. Admission is FREE. If the weather's nice, John & I will be flying up in the Starfighter so that folks can climb all over it :-)
The IWASM is located at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland. I only just discovered the museum last year... read my blog post about it if you'd like to know more.
Announcing two Awards from the GCAC!
I am honored once again to be the recipient of two Greater Columbus Arts Council Artist in the Community grants. The first is a supply grant which will help me purchase frames for the Flying Adventures exhibit. The second is a generous professional development grant which will fund a private bookbinding workshop with Jace Graf of Cloverleaf Studios in Austin, Texas. I look forward to honing my skills!
... and, well, eating lunches around the corner at Il Chilito. Gosh that place is sooo good!
I've been to Cloverleaf a couple times already, one to help finish & send off a group portfolio project to which I'd been a contributor, and another to participate in an intro-to-basic-bookbinding class. I definitely needed something more involved, and when I asked Jace if he'd take me on as a private student for a weekend, I was so happy he said yes. I am thinking of using an exposed-tape binding for my new edition of Flying Adventures. No glue means my images won't peel off the inkjet coating in between signatures. Plus I could really have fun with color combinations for the covers and thread. The photo below is one of Jace's examples of that binding style.
I can’t thank the GCAC enough for their continued support of this project and all that they do to support the arts in our city!
