"My name is Josh Greene. I am a 34 - year old artist and waiter.
Service-Works is my own foundation that is designed to bridge the gap
between my art career and my service industry career. Each month I
dedicate one night’s worth of my tips to fund a project. For the past
twelve years I have been doing art projects while making a living
waiting tables. I currently work as a captain (quite similar to a
waiter) in a fine-dining restaurant in San Francisco."
The deadline for February is the 21st, however there is one grant per month (of around $250).
I think this is a great idea (and ties directly into "Waiting...

Charlotte Smith : Occupation
- Nick Gaydos [ 11/28/2005 - 17:09 ] #
"The latest project in The Intervention
Series comprises a documentary exhibition of Smiths exploration into
codes of occupation within domestic spaces.
For Occupation, Smith has examined the day-to-day experience artists have with their studios at Bankley Gallery Studios
Specifically working with the café staff at nearby The Friends Café and
the refuse collection organiser for the studios, Smith has reversed the
traditional roles of service they provide to the Bankley studio artists
and offered their service back to them in their own domestic spaces.
Occupation describes a concept Smith has developed through both a
written thought process (embodied by her text Comment) and the
relationships she developed with the workers (cooking a meal for one of
the café staff and disposing of the rubbish of the refuse organiser.)
The thought process follows an exploration into how society has
developed a system of appropriation of the spaces they occupy.
Bankley presents the documentation of this process as a series of
images, a short publication discussing the work and a comment delivered
as both a text in the publication and a talk on the 3rd and 17th of
3rd to the 29th December 2005
Artists talk 7pm 3rd December
Repeat Talk 17th December

Interview with Peter Saville
- Nick Gaydos [ 10/19/2005 - 11:04 ] #
Peter Saville is one of the founding partner of Factory Records and a graphic designer. He's interviewed by MocoLoco
, a design related website.
Mocoloco: How are graphic design and object design related, if it all?
Peter Saville: Not at all really. Graphic design is communications
design, which means that primarily it’s for others to others. Object
design has the capacity to be personally motivated, very rarely does
graphic design provide that opportunity. It is a communications medium,
so if you’re expressing yourself you need initially to be the author of
that which you wish to express – therefore you will be a writer, a
storyteller, or an image maker first - then you may use the medium of
graphic design to express that which you intend.

"Sally Gall’s haunting black and white photographs are usually unpeopled
landscapes, formal gardens or striking bits of topography, but when
people do make it into her frame, they do so less as characters and
more as compositional elements that come with the scenery. Gall’s
Water’s Edge series touches on any manner of waterscape, ranging from
the crystalline stillness of a swimming pool to an old-fashioned
swimming cap bobbing on gentle waves to a classical reflection of
Belgian trees on a river. Evidence of Wind and Visitation are captured
moments from the collection called Between Worlds. Gall gives us photos
that are soothing, photos that allow us to take a break from the pace,
to stop and catch our breath."

BRIDGET RILEY: PAINTINGS AND WORKS ON PAPER, 1963-2005
Blaze 3, 1963 | Acrylic on board | 37 1/4” x 37
"This exhibition encompasses forty years of uncompromising and remarkable innovation, exploring Bridget Riley’s characteristic and distinctive optically vibrant work. Her last exhibition in North America was at the Dia Center, New York, in 2000.
Riley’s work is celebrated for its ability to engage the viewer’s sensations and perceptions, producing visual experiences that are complex and challenging, subtle and arresting.
Her paintings employ a simple vocabulary of colors and abstract shapes to generate sensations of movement, light and space. This exhibition traces the development of Riley’s work from the early 1960s to the present day.
Ms. Riley will be at Cranbrook on Friday evening, September 23, 2005.
Ms. Riley will present a rare public lecture on Saturday, September 24 at 4:00 p.m."
The exhibit will be shown September 3, 2005 through October 30, 2005.

I just got back from meeting OCC'ers Michelle, Peter, Nayiri, Julia and Ben at Amer's Cafe in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We took about two hours this afternoon to talk about the steps we are going to take to become a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
By becoming a 501(c)3, Outside Circle Collective will be able to better serve our member-artists by making it easier to obtain and provide funding to promote the artists and the collective as a whole. We expect that we can raise funding through sponsorship, grants, membership and donations while keeping the financial impact on our artists to a minimum.
Currently, we are in the process of drafting Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, as well as seeking out the US government and State of Michigan forms to make us "official."
If you would like to help in the process, have some background knowledge or know someone who would be willing to help (a lawyer or consultant), please let us know

Masters of Illusion: 150 Years of Trompe l’Oeil in America
- Nick Gaydos [ 1/4/2005 - 13:40 ] #
The newest exhibit at Kresge Art Museum in East Lansing, Michigan:
"When translated from French, trompe l’oeil literally means “to fool-the-eye.”
Over 45 works of art will be on display and include paintings by the famous 19th
century American artists William Michael Harnett and John Frederick Peto.
of the contemporary artists include Tom Friedman, Sylvia Mangold, Robert Gober,
Vernon Fisher, Alan Magee, Sam Taylor-Wood, and Federico Castelluccio (known for
his role as Furio Giunta on HBO’s The Sopranos).
The trompe l’oeil style has existed for centuries, but in the mid-19th
century American painters became its foremost practitioners. These painters try
to make the images on the canvas seem three-dimensional and to extend into the
viewer’s space. They use depth and receding and jutting planes to achieve the
illusion. “For some painters, the illusion lies in the details. In Vernon
Fisher’s case, it is a small sculpted fly resting on a large abstract canvas,”
says April Kingsley, curator of the exhibition."
EXHIBITION: Masters of Illusion: 150 Years of Trompe l’Oeil in America
DATES: January 10 – March 20, 2005
OPENING: Sunday, January 16, 2-5 p.m.
LOCATION: Kresge Art Museum, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich.
There will be number of lectures related to the exhibit planned including one on January 25th by visiting
artist Jonathan Seliger from New York City. The schedule of events is available on their website.

The Museum's curatorial,

anywhere in the world—research and write the Timeline, which is an invaluable reference and research
tool for students, educators, scholars, and anyone interested in the
study of art history and related subjects.
First launched in 2000, the
Timeline now extends from prehistory to the present day. The Timeline will continue
to expand in scope and depth, and also reflect the most up–to–date scholarship."
