Kalamazoo was fabulous. Met many lovely people, some for the first time and some for the first time face to face. My paper went well and was met with helpful questions and comments rather than the dreaded "You have an interesting point, but... [devastating evidence to the contrary of your entire argument]" I call it a success. I'm sure Vellum will have more to say, having organized a panel in addition to presenting, and was offered the opportunity to write an article besides.
We have returned with a renewed dedication to posting. I can't say I will be able to uphold my part of the bargain (my major summer exhibit opens a week from Saturday; it is still uncertain which pieces will be in the exhibit; only a dozen items have yet been hung, and there are no labels or educational material at this time), but expect to see more posts over the next few months.
In the meantime, I'm going back to detaching foam labels from the walls, dragging about large framed bits of artwork, and pondering whether in fact I am insane for thinking this can become an exhibit in 10 days time. I'm guessing yes; time will tell.
