Considering I have been working in an un air conditioned space (in Houston) this is a HUGE welcomed step in my artistic journey. August 1st I picked up the key. Last May I was accepted along with 8 other artist into the BLOCK program at the MFAH Glassell Studio School. In the Block program I have an air conditioned studio (my own) on the property and I am able to use the facilities (every department) 24 hrs a day. It is like getting the key to Disneyland. The other tremendous benefit of being selected in this program are the studio visits. Every Thursday Patrick Palmer the Dean has hand selected people in the art community to visit in our studios and discuss our work. It is an amazing opportunity and I plan on soaking up everything I can for the next two years.
I can't wait - Disneyland everyday.
