  1. Nice weblog right here! Additionally your website rather a lot up fast! What web host are you the use of? Can I get your associate link on your host? I want my site loaded up as fast as yours lol

  2. Joanne, you have my full support. I cant beeilve this is still happening. I had so many fatal experiences with academia – most of it because I was older, female, and hired as adjunct or administration to teach art, museum studies and run college art galleries as director/curator. The fact is I did it too well and roused jealousy because my programs got more publicity than did the art classes and students. I was raised to not brag or think of myself as more than a hard worker and professional artist and curator, so it took me 15 years of losing jobs to younger, more self-effacing women or men. This doesnt happen as often to men from what I have experienced, and if women dare to be “uppity”, they are also declared to be selfish, self-centered and egotistical. It is none of that but the labels do undermine ones self confidence and truth. Sad. Eight years ago I decided it wasnt worth it to continue working in academia, but the shit did hit the fan anyway and my career as a teacher/director/curator went out with the baby’s bath water. I’m poorer working in an office, and have a lot of catching up to do as an exhibiting artist, but I am happier. Wish I had had the means to do what you are doing, but I had 2 children and couldnt. Hooray for you that you have the support and contacts to reinvent yourself and the conference. Your conference had helped me immensly to get my work seen beyond my own state and get some recognition for the 40 years I have worked in encaustic. You and the conference have given encaustic equal place with oil and acrylic techniques. Wish it had worked at the college, but if you are moving on, I can too. Its funny, one of the colleges that I worked as gallery director and got replaced by a less-experienced younger person also took credit for my winning a Gottlieb grant the year I left. See you in June. By the way, your silk road series is absolutely stunning. Id love to attend a session watching how you get the rainbow of smooth colors.Susanne Arnold
