WooHoo! The display panels in the gallery have all been sanded and theÂ wainscoting has been cut for installation. Â Then stain the floor and a slick coat of paint and the gallery will be done! Â It would not have been possible without your generous donations. Â Keep spreading the word and we[‘ll keep fighting.
Drawing class will be from 7-8p central time for the foreseeable future. Â I find that when I have drawing class at 6, I not only have to leave the day job early to get everything set up in time, but I don’t get home in time to play with my babies. Â This way, Artmom can swing ’em by the studio prior to class and we can share a McNugget Happy Meal.
The day job has me out of town traveling again this week so I don’t know if there will be an Artistic Biker Live! on Thursday. Â Be sure and follow me on twitter @BladeTheArtistÂ for any updates in that regard.
We need topics and interviewees for Midnight at Oasis. Â The topics can be any subject: politics, religion, sex, environment. Â The only requirement is that they have to be related back to creativity. Â For instance: how have world economic pressures affected your ability to find time to art? Â I’ve started a Facebook group here:Â http://www.facebook.com/groups/382982991728276/Â so go join up and suggest topics. Â We’ll set up a poll to vote and interview people over Skype.
This time of year we are ALL severely limited on fundage so we may be building with used pallets. Â If you would like to help with that, you can go to artisticbiker.com and look for the DONATE button on the right side column and donate what you can. Â If you can’t do that, please share this newsletter with everyone you know to help get the word out. Â That helps more than you know. Â Or better yet,Â Click Here to Join!Â artisticbiker.com/membershipÂ and help promote the arts in rural Oklahoma.
If you have any announcements you would like made in the newsletter or tweeted aboutÂ incessantly, drop me a line and I’ll toot your horn for ya. Â ;) Â There were no announcements this week.
