Hey, everyone. I’ve had some more opportunities and surprises pop up, so I figured I’d go ahead and post the info.
I mentioned a little while back that I was working on a collage for breast cancer research. Every year, the Tata Gala (http://www.tatagala.org/) has a contest, so I decided to enter. I finished my piece, submitted it, and didn’t hear anything… for weeks. Much to my surprise, after I got home on Monday, I received an e-mail from the Tata Gala peeps saying that my piece got accepted into the online gallery. As a result, Your Friendly Neighborhood Christian’s collage will be viewed (via some 50-inch LCD screens) during the gallery show in New York.
Also, a good friend of mine and some of his friends put together a publication that made its debut in Chattanooga on Halloween. It’s called DEBACLE. I’m very pleased to announce that you can peep some of my poems in it. If you’re out and about in Chattanooga, you can scoop up copies at the AVA information area (between Blue Skies and the AVA art gallery) on Frazier Ave.
Switching gears, MANIFEST is a little over a week away. I’m very excited, and my goal for this weekend is to really work on crafting a particular set. I wanted to go ahead and let everyone know that, as a special treat, there will be a FREE DIGITAL SAMPLER of the performers who will be performing in MANIFEST 2, which will take place on Dec. 10th at the Camp House. I’ll post a download link on here, and you can also find it on the MANIFEST Facebook page here:
On December 4th, there is an event that takes place in Chattanooga called Mainx24. If you’re unfamiliar with it, it’s a 24-hr. festival that takes place along Main St. in Chattanooga. I’ll be doing a set of poetry at Create Here (1800 Rossville Ave.) at 2:15. I'll be hosting a few friends of mine ( Hara Paper, Sourne Korvid, and Amber Fults) later at the Camp House from 4:15 pm - 6:45 pm. It’s all free, so come on out if you’re looking for something to do.
Well folks, that’s all I got for now.
