It's here...

I'd already have the pictures loaded to the gallery tour flickr group, but apparently my account is in lockdown due to all the naked people. *sigh* I've asked for a review of my account and pointed out that it's set to all restricted, hello! and could I pretty please change these ones to Safe so I can show them? Please?

Hopefully that'll happen soon.

In the meantime, you can see the unveiling of the intriguing box at my flickr directly here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/angelanhunt

Tonight's the night! First Fridays at Everyday Zen Relaxation Studio. Event starts at 5:30 PM and runs for some time. I'll be there as close to 5:30 pm as I can make, jetting from downtown. Pray that traffic doesn't try to eat me.

More details and directions can be found here:

I hope to see you there!

Ant Update will be probably tomorrow. Final bills arrived. OW. But we're very close to having this completely done and taken care of, which wouldn't have been possible without all of you.

I am eternally grateful. Adverb and all. You guys rock the Casbah.

* * *

Managed to work on taxes *and* Strange Weather last night. Didn't get any gallery subs done, but two out of three is total awesome and Win.

The Bean has decided that she is only happy if she can be in the Ergo and riding on my back while I cook dinner or there is much screaming and yelling. Luckily, this is no big and actually, kinda fun. She coos and plays with the straps as I cook and walk around, which makes me smile. Baby coos are instant endorphin creators. You have to be dead to not smile when you hear a happy baby.

The Mouse is getting better and better at her sote arabesques too. Come Saturday, I think Miss Laura will be pleased. I just love watching her jump around, pointing her toes.

Now, I just need to mainline a metric ton of caffeine so I can pretend to be smiling and charming tonight at the art walk.

As some of you may have caught, I'm going to be showing this Friday, October 2nd in Long Beach at the Everyday Zen Relaxation Studio for the First Fridays Art Walk in Long Beach! The event starts at 5:30 PM and runs for some time. I'll be there as close to 5:30 pm as I can make, jetting from downtown.

Along with my art, Everyday Zen Relaxation Studio will be offering Dermalogica face mapping, their Reiki Students may be practicing on people, and Ayamanatara will be offering a presentation on crystal healing. Their resident harpist will also be helping create ambiance. (I love that they have a resident harpist.)

I hope to see you there!

Another conflicted weekend, but this time the good outweighed the meh.

Significantly outweighed the meh.

Today is also the 40th anniversary of the moon landing. It makes me sad today. 40 years and we're not off the rock. What the hell is wrong with us?

The next four weeks are hammered and then the year does it's annual death spiral towards the holidays and eating all my time. Even with that knowledge, I'm seriously contemplating putting together a more substantial annual Hunt Press Book & Art Party. Timothy at Black Cat Gallery has offered to help me out with promoting the current crop of books and I really loved showing at his place last time. Thoughts?

In the meantime, I have a long list of Momma tasks ahead of me tonight. Yesterday was spent in acquiring new sleepers for the Bean as she has outgrown the first batch. Tonight is a trip to Gymboree for Mouse clothing.

And I need a new pair of walking shoes. And I want purely impractical red ones. Because red shoes are what this year is about.

With that, I get back to it.

Hey folks!

Just a reminder that I’m in a group show this next weekend, Saturday, 8/11 at the Art Slave Gallery, from 7 PM to Midnight. The curator is a great guy that I’ve worked with before and this promises to be a great show. This is his own gallery, not just some place he’s curating, and he has a lot of love for his new venue. This being the second show he’s done there, I hope you can roll out to see the show.


Address is:

Art Slave Gallery
216 S Spring Street
Los Angeles ca 90012


Hope to see you there!

Surprise!

I have a show next month. The same day as the Mouse's birthday, in the evening. Which means it'll be party time during the day and then around 8 or 9 PM, I'll bail to make an appearance at the gallery.

Even with the crazy timeline for that day, I'm stoked. I've worked with Neil before and this is his first gallery that's his, his, his. I'm really happy for him and I'm happy to be exhibiting with him again. He's going to be a curator to watch in the LA art scene.

Anyway, for those of you at the party, I hope you can roll with me after the festivities and for those of you not, I hope you'll be able to come down and see the art. It should be very cool.

* * *

As for the rest, I'm just happy it's Friday.

It was a really long week.

It's not something I wanted to give energy to, but this morning it's very much in my mind.

A little while ago, I think not even a month ago, there was a shooting in my neighborhood. A young woman, 17 years old, was shot and killed in an alley not even four blocks from my house. The next day, two boys collecting money for her funeral were also shot and killed. This last weekend, there was another shooting. I don't know if there was a death or not. I haven't heard anything from the neighborhood yet, but it doesn't change the fact that there have now been three shootings in the space of one/two months.

I've lived here for four years. This is the first time there's been anything like this kind of violence. I can't say I haven't lived in violent, unsafe neighborhoods before. When I lived in San Francisco, the house I was in was burglarized three separate times, in three different ways. They only ever caught one of the burglars, who turned out to be an old man who had mostly come in to steal painkillers. He was profoundly sad when I saw him when I went to testify at his trial.

I'm not sure entirely where I'm going with this, unless it's this.

I know what it's like to live this way, but before, I didn't have a child. I won't let the Mouse play in the front yard on the weekends anymore. Turns out there's this phenomenon where gang members are going back to their old neighborhoods on the weekends, since gentrification has forced most of them and their families to move. That's what's happening in our neighborhood. All the violence has been near the weekends.

I don't like that I have to keep my child inside or in my backyard, because I'm afraid of what might happen. I don't know how to explain it to her, this tribalism and territorialism within our own city.

I don't know how to explain it to her at all.

* * *

I apologize for the somber note, but it's part of my world right now. As for the rest, the day job is profoundly stupid. The happiness from my vacation wore off within the first hour of being back on the job on Monday. It was pitiful.

* * *

Promotion continues for the solo show and book launch. Watch this space and others for updates.

That's right! Next week, I'm off to Disneyland for the Mouse's second birthday ritual celebration! Yay!!! I'll probably post on Monday, but expect nothing until Friday after that. I'm off to take the Mouse to the Happiest Place on Earth.

* * *

Looks like I've got a show in October! I'll have more details as they come up. I'm rather happily stunned at the turn of events. Now I just have to find negatives of the prints I mean to show and hope that the work is disturbing enough for the curator. Drowned girls is disturbing, right? :)

* * *

The husband continues to work crazy hours. I miss him. He misses us. Being a week out from submission on the game is just brutal. This part of his work process I never enjoy and neither does he. I can't help but think there must be a better way, but this seems to be the way that these things work in the game industry.

In the meantime, I've sent more work off to the printers and I'm waiting to get a test copy of the husband's book from the other printer. I hope it went through okay.

I'm also putting the finishing touches on the final edit of Strange Weather, *finally*. Took me long enough, but the end is in sight.

Oh! And I'm almost finished on the latest painting. If all goes well, I'll have a picture up of it for Monday. I'm really pleased with it. Once it's done, I get to splash into some abstract work. Yay!
angela_n_hunt: (Default)
First off, since many have asked...

The show went fine. It was rather low key and low energy, but I made some great contacts and it was wonderful to see the work up on a gallery wall. That part just never gets old. Seeing it up in a gallery all by itself? Well, that will be the first, come September. Except for showing in my backyard, I've never had a solo show.

No sales, but sometimes showing is like that and I'm okay with that. It reminded me very much of what it was like to show in San Francisco, which I used to do a fair amount of back in the day.

* * *

I'm running behind today, already, because I spent all morning putting the finishing touches to the cover for Matthew's book. It's off to Ingram to be approved for distribution. As soon as I get it back, I get to tack in ISBNs and get ready to push. Yay!

I'm really excited. It looks beautiful.

Other than that, I'm tired, (but when am I not) and feeling good. Don't want to go to the day job, but when is that not true either?

* * *

In other news, the Divine Miss B just got back from Lumos in Las Vegas. She had a fabulous time. Go read about the madness at her LJ, barriequark. If I wasn't running late, I'd make with the linky. In the meantime, you all have a fabulous Monday. This woman needs to scamper.

I dreamed of fish last night. Swimming around. They were my guppies in their little octagon tank and last night... There were beautiful, tiny baby fish swimming with my little school.

I take it as a very good omen and excellent dream. For some reason, whenever I dream of fish, good things happen. And I don't mean eating fish, I mean fish. I've had dreams of swimming with dolphins without the aid of breathing equipment and one of the most profound dreams I ever had in my life ended with me watching immense white fish swim through the air as the sun set over a stone walled labyrinth.

So. To dream of fish is a very good thing for me.

I've never looked up their meaning in a dream dictionary. It's been enough to just have had these dreams.

* * *

The week's been very long and very stressful at work, but I've managed to survive, cold/flu and all. It has been one of those weeks where for the first time since it went retrograde, I really felt like Mercury was retrograde. Lots of miscommunication, nothing but computer problems. Very frustrating.

* * *

The rest of the life though?

Well. Except for missing a friend's art show and AllRise last night, because I was just too damn sick and exhausted, it's been a very good week to me.

Man. I've got a show tonight. Woohoo!!!
angela_n_hunt: (Default)
Oh. My. Gods.

Went to the interview.

I'M IN THE SHOW!!!

*hyperventilates and runs around screaming, hits wall, falls down*

Wow.

So. Details as I know them so far:

Gallery NoiR
2032 Stoner Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90025

Group Show Friday, July 28th, 7 PM till 2 AM

$5 at the door

It's going to be huge. Please, everyone and anyone in LA, PLEASE COME. There's going to be music, food, wine and my art hanging on a black gallery wall.

I don't know what's happened and I don't care. From no shows and no interest to all this in, man, look at the time! This is just the coolest.

Please come and drink wine with me and look at naked women! You know you want to!
angela_n_hunt: (Default)
Cause I just won't be posting tomorrow. :)

Show went really well. And if I had had a credit card machine, I would have made some money! LOL Oh well. But I will soon have one with a cell connection, so next time, the tipsy woman with money to burn will not escape! Ha!

On top of that, Malediction Society was a blast! The venue is gorgeous, if hard to find. It's at the Monte Cristo Club on Wilshire, but it's in the back of the building.

With no signs.

I love places like that.

Outdoor patio, wonderful dance floor and super gothy. With people who are friendly and chatty. Clothes were wonderful too. I was way underdressed, which surprised me, since it certainly wasn't that way at other places I've been to. Next time, I must dress up more!

I got some wonderful feedback and appreciation, which was great.

* * *

We're off to run around a bit now and have a good time with the Mouse. For all of you, I wish you a happy, happy Fourth. Fire up those bbqs!

LOOK!

Print out the flyer.

COME SEE ME SHOW AT THE NIGHT GALLERY!!!

*does Happy Artist Dance*

Woohoo!

My large photographic prints came yesterday. My giclees came yesterday. I am going to be a framing fool today.

Oh. And the prints?

They look fucking awesome. I was *meant* to print at 16x20. 11x14 was too fucking small. These are just... I don't have words.

You have to come see them!!!

* * *

So, I'm still running around like an overactive hamster on crack. Who's surprised? I have a show tomorrow! I almost couldn't sleep last night, thinking about all that I need to accomplish. But I managed.

* * *

I've got a chiropractor appointment at noon. I think I'm going to need that adjustment more than ever. And I'm definitely going to yoga tonight to burn off some of this excess energy and to get centered.

* * *

I'm hoping to have another announcement soon. I'll find out later today. (I hope, I hope, I hope)

* * *

I took the day off from work. Do I look crazy to you? Like I'd be able to do anything if I were there, other than hamster about the show!

I'm now going to go and play with my darling Mouse. Oh, and she liked the prints and giclees. Which is all that matters.

But before I do, on a more somber note, please say a prayer or light a candle for Jim Baen. In the midst of all my bliss, I heard that he passed away on Wednesday. I'm on a bit of a roller coaster ride of emotions. First, ecstatic and than grieving.

He was a giant.

But before I go on with the usual: don't forget! This Saturday! Night Gallery at The Malediction Society! I'll be there with my art! Don't let me feel lonely! :) Directions and stuff coming shortly!

* * *

As the above and yesterday's post can attest, I'm practically vibrating off this plane of existence with excitement and no small bit of trepidation. It's been a little over two years since my last show of this kind. Last show, I was five months pregnant and trying to figure out how I was going to stay on my feet for the whole thing. The pictures are rather amusing from that time.

This time, I have an almost two year old to show for that period of work and new photography and paintings. Not bad. Better yet, I have no problems with being on my feet all night. I've got prints coming for the pieces that only exist digitally. They'll be here tomorrow, Next Day Delivery willing. I get frames on Friday as well as put my poor printer to the torture test putting out postcards and business cards that have buying info on them. I wish I had more time to get both done a little more high end, but it is what it is.

But the gist is, my brain is buzzing, I'm drinking new high end caffeinated coffee which is probably a mistake and I feel great! Great!

*still running around screaming with excitement*

Guess what? Guess what?

This Saturday, July 1st, is the Cancer Zodiac Ball at MALEDICTION
SOCIETY, and...
