One of the reasons I've been slacking so hard on the blog lately is that I've been busy with the kind of thing one wants to be busy with as a freelance artist and writer. Behold, my schedule for the rest of the year.

On Saturday, July 28, I'm teaching a workshop at Boston Skillshare, How to Remember: Use Your Brain's Innate Powers to Memorize Without Repetition. This is my first sustained foray into teaching this subject, and it should be a lot of fun.

In August, I'm participating in a wood engraving workshop at Zea Mays Printmaking with no less than Barry Moser.

"Ying Li: No Middle Way," the exhibition that I curated at the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery at Haverford College, opens Friday, September 7. A catalogue for which I wrote an essay will be available. September 29 I'll be tabling at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo with an anthology that I'm anthologizing. (More about that when we launch the website and Kickstarter campaign in August.) Lastly but not leastly, I have been invited to participate in the Governors Island Art Fair this year. Since September 1 falls on a Saturday, the fair will take place over the course of five weekends in September instead of the usual four.

My exhibition at Common Sense runs October 5-27, with an opening on the 5th. October 8-28, I'll be in a residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts led by no less than Megan Kelso.

On November 13 I'll be a Visiting Artist at Montclair State University, and speaking as part of their Art Forum lecture series 2:30-4:20 PM.

And that isn't all, but it is all that has been confirmed. Expect full reports to appear here in a much less slackety manner.

My, you're busy! Don't forget to send me an announcement for your Common Sense show when you have a title for it and the hours of the opening reception. I'll post an entry on the "Events" section of my website.

I looked up Montclair State. The most interesting thing I saw was how many PhDs are on the faculty and teaching "studio". That is a "leading" institution that has its "academic act" well put together. It is causing a lot of thinking on my part about the future function of art in the curriculum of higher ed.

Franklin is well-served to be invited there. It is quite an honor.
