It’s been a interesting summer so far, blog goers. I’ve been all over the place with my hand in many different pies. So much is happening, so many changes…so, so much…

Considering this fact and my desire to keep the quality of Blind Date on the up and up, I’ve decided to cut posts down to when I have something extra special for you. Thing such as big announcements, events, and (of course) interviews! I think this way I can allot time to other projects and keep my sanity, but at the same time keep things interesting for you! I also promise more Instagrams…I swear! I know I’ve been neglecting you on that end….

Speaking of the projects I have in the works, at the end of August I’ll be uploading my interview with Camera Lucida. They’re an awesome aural/visual experience based duo.

I’ve also been working with Stacey Reason from the Louisville Artists Syndicate. I’m putting together an exclusive exhibition only interview with Rudy Salgado and Susanna Crum, available for listen at the show! We discuss the art of printmaking, their up & coming print shop, as well as their print collection which is the subject of the exhibition. I’ll keep you in the loop as I get more details…

Along with that, I’ve been trying to get together with my friend Lindsay Smith, to discuss a really awesome project she is doing along with her medical studies. I’m super excited about this as well…

One last thing, I’m participating in this year’s Open Studio Weekend with a small collective of friends. We’re putting together a small sound installation and working on a large collaborative piece inspired by Mandalas.

Sometime after this I’d also like to try to have an art yard sale.

We’ll see which way the wind blows…

Hey there listeners

The summer seems to be speeding by us. And so many great art related events going on around town. Many of which have been sponsored by the Louisville Artists Syndicate.

For this week’s episode, I spoke with Stacey Reason of the Syndicate; she offered up the story, mission, and future plans of the group. Their main aims as a collective are to give young artists the chance they need to get their preverbal foot in the door & to erase the barriers between artists and the rest of the community.
