I will be giving a talk at Racine Arts Council (RAC) ArtSpace Gallery this Saturday April 14th from noon-1:00pm. I’ve been following the progress of the Veterans Book Project for a number of years and have assisted artist Monica Haller in book-making workshops with veterans around the country. I will lead a discussion of the Veterans Book Project (which is ON VIEW in the space)and share my experience working with the project. Free and open to the public. Please attend and please spread the word. I really hope to see some of you there. The books are amazing and 5 of them were produced by local veterans.
LOCATION: 316 6th Street, Racine, WI 53403. It’s very close to RAM.
TIME: noon-1pm on Sat April 14th.

Hans Gindlesberger was a guest artist at UW-Parkside yesterday. He ran a workshop where art students used their iPhone cameras, Photoshop, and After Effects to animate drawings and photocopies. Hans showed up for the workshop with a bunch of photocopies he had pulled from Flickr showing Empire Nevada, a town which is no longer a town. It recently had its zip code revoked. Each group made its own section of the film and we just linked them all together. It turned out pretty poetic even though we didn’t have time for editing. Music by James Passannante.

Come to Envie, the very cool new nightclub and restaurant, on Main Street in downtown Racine on November 3rd from 7-9 pm to support “Get Behind the Arts Studio Tour.” I am teaming up with artist David Holmes, gallery director and artist Melanie Hovey and Mayor John Dickert to help raise a little cash to support this really great spring-time open studio event.

Looking at Conceptual Art: What Makes it Art?
It is often said that the meaning of art is unchanging and timeless, but is that so? Patricia Briggs will review the changing definition of art focusing on the contemporary moment, a time when conceptual artists seek to understand the forces that shape the world rather than presenting beautiful forms or personal expressions of feeling.
