Saturday Dec. 17th is Cleveland Handmade Markets and The Screw Factory Artists, band together with the 4th annual Last Minute Market & Screw Factory Open Studio. I’ll have my studio open from noon – 4pm on the 2nd floor. I’ll also have copies of my book available! So if you want it signed, you know where to come. Who knows, you might even be in the acknowledgments (it’s true!)

 The Last Minute Market is a wonderfully unique, one-day shopping destination with more than 65 artists and craftspeople from Cleveland and our talented friends from across the rust belt region. In addition, artists whose studios are in the building will open their doors to offer a peek at their workspace and an opportunity to purchase their work. Don’t miss this Market! Nearly every form of art and craft will be represented. The Umami Moto food truck will also be on hand to keep you fueled for shopping.

On Saturday, January 21, 2012, BRGCCA will host a costumed soiree in honor of Surreal Salon IV from 7 – 11 p.m. This will be an exciting evening of visual art, live musical performances, surrealist games and costumed attendees channeling their own pop-surreal visions. The event will be held at BRGCCA inside Baton Rouge’s historic City Park. I’m currently seeing if I can swing going down for this event.
