Upcoming AIR at Red Barn Studio Museum

    I am starting a two-week artist residency at Red Barn Studio Museum in Lindsborg KS from next week.  This is my second stay in Lindsborg.  The last time was about 11 years ago when my kids attended a chess camp.  It's so exciting to be able to stay in this charming Swedish town in the middle of Kansas again.  The museum where the studio is located itself is a work of art.  Can't wait to be surrounded by their collections that are displayed, the artworks by Lester Raymer which I adore very much. 

    This is my second residency after Umbria, Italy from 11 years ago.  In Italy,  I did a lot of plein-air paintings.  Right now, I don't know what I am going to create while in Lindsborg.  I have several ideas, but first of all, I would like to observe my surroundings and listen to the sounds there carefully.  One thing I am sure of is that I will make a "nest" in the studio with my "A Thread X A Thread" installation and make work in it!  If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello to me!  And yes, please wear a mask in the museum and the studio.
