I will be attending this event and after going over to the Library to take whomever is interested in a tour of Precious Objects. The Ohio Arts Council insists I put the statement at the bottom of any publicity this year. I know, sucks to be me. Chuck

I am been profoundly negligent on getting publicity out on this. This is sort of the year of Toledo for me. The Library is just around the corner from TMA. The interior is filled with Vitrolite architectural glass and is, all in all, a very cool place. Hope some of you can make it to the reception on 4/13 at 6
Even not being from Toledo, it was impossible to avoid the flap in the Toledo art community over the changes to this show. Those of us that are in it certainly are feeling pretty good but the shows change has reduced the opportunity for Toledo artists to get seen and receive the imprimatur of being in the “Museum”. Here in Cleveland there has been a similar ongoing discussion about the long gone Cleveland Musuem of Art’s May Show. attached is an article written by the one of the more serious gallerists in town who happens to be a huge supporter of local artists. It is an important topic though the answers are not come from a nostalgic look at the past. http://bit.ly/1x0dJu7
Me, I am grateful to have had this opportunity.
Well, I’ve not tried a blog before either, but I’m hoping everyone will post their new activities. Thanks K.A. for taking the initiative and organizing us. -Margi
Thanks K.A. for taking the time to think about this. I’m new to WordPress but look forward to finding my way around and bumping into TAA friends.
I am working on putting together this blog so that we can all keep in touch about our future activities. It has been a privilege to get to know you all (at least a little) and I’m looking forward to reading more about what you are doing. In this blog you can share news about your shows, residencies, successes in the studio–really, anything about your art practice that will be of interest to your fellow artists in the region.
The blog is in the developing stages, so I have only the most rudimentary elements right now. I would like to add a gallery of works by artists, and I will be contacting you by e-mail to get some images. All artists opting into this blog will be listed as “authors” and you may post at will. If you are interested in dipping your toes into the blogosphere, this is an opportunity!
