The Montana Paint order arrived yesterday and everyone worked late into the night (with some well deserved play too!). Pic fromThursday afternoon. Can’t wait to see the latest.
And in case you were wondering just where all the action was taking place…
Wow. It seems others are taking notice too…here’s a link to an article in the Nashville Scene and another here on the Tennessean.com.

Day two finds the crew barreling ahead full speed. We heard reports of raindrops but everyone made good use of the break by meeting with the Untitled Artists Group. Some more (and better) photos of the progress can be found here.

Wednesday 8/29 UPDATE:Reports from Nashville put it at “Hot.” Everyone arrived safely, the scaffolding is up and the outline has begun. Our hosts couldn’t be more welcoming. If you happen to be in the area…don’t miss the show at Twist Gallery Nashville
Isaac Arvold fixed the van. John Grider booked a ticket. Eric Inkala and Drew Peterson ordered 3 cases of Montana paints to be shipped to Nashville. What’s going on?
Thanks to the hard work of Emma here in Minneapolis and Caroline at Twist Gallery in Nashville, mplsart.com is proud be be introducing the talents of John, Eric, Isaac and Drew to Tennessee! This rare opportunity to see all four of these Minneapolis artists exhibiting together out of state, in a show titled WHOLE MILK, has been further boosted by the commission of a mural on the side of The Viridian Residences. Twist Gallery for more info.

miss jennifer davis really does amaze me over and over. as pictured online for juxtapoz, jennifer davis created this for a cd cover “concept”. as always, i think it is wonderful!
With a lot of the friends i have, it begins with art, and turns into a wonderful friendship. With jen, we were actually in an art collaboration/group/thingy together with Brad Senne, Ben Olson (of course), John Whitney & Veronica del Carmen, Melissa Constatine & Nathan Holtz (featured as “the actors” here), Jaron Childs & (the brains behind the whole project) Melinda Hobbs. We created some stuff of interest, some boring stuff and some complete crap, but it was inspiring. During that time I started the site, and i continue to be inspired by all of the creative people around me, daily!

last year i wrote this blog after attending the annual sound unseen event artists of distinction awards.
The night actually began, with a viewing of ROBOTlove sponsored “the treasures of long gone john” at blb, which i liked so much i just purchased…it was inspiring, uplifting, made everything seem possible!
So, tonight is the night for the artists of distinction awards at seventh street, which is sure to be wonderful…and tomorrow will be the viewing of this year’s ROBOTlove sponsored film at the RITZ. Called, PD03: Day Dream Nation, I am sure it will be just as inspiring, an absolute treat.
Sound Unseen happens annually, so make sure you check it out…before it’s gone, and a whole year passes.
hope to see you!

The amazing Kate Iverson, of density studios and l’etoile, asked that I post this call for artists…so here it is:
FESTIVAL OF APPROPRIATION: CALL FOR ARTISTS
Entry Deadline: Monday, August 20, 2007
This two week event in November 2007 will bring together collage, assemblage and mixed media artists, working with two and three dimensional visual collage and assemblage, along with works of audio and video collage, to celebrate the art of appropriation. The event will feature an exhibition at The Soap Factory and a film screening and art lab at The Walker Art Center. Participating artists will also be included in a special curated section at the mnartists site, with potential to be highlighted in November’s access+ENGAGE newsletter focusing on the art of appropriation.
