We're in Santa Fe now visiting our friends Robin & Vic... and hopefully hooking up with my Digital Art Guild artist friend Ursula Freer. In going through all the emails, I happened upon a google alert and found that one of my artist friends from Nada Dada - Dean Burton had posted one of my Power Series Images! Take a peek here Thanks Dean. His work is very good and I hope that you can see it at NadaDada Motel this year from June 18th to the 21st!

This is a sneak preview of some of the new work I'm developing for NadaDada Motel at the El Cortez Hotel at 2nd and Arlington in Downtown Reno from June 18 to the 21st. I'm also working on a video installation and on Saturday night at the Trocadero Room at the El Cortez will feature yours truly and Cynthia Burdick as the Sexy Sisters performing erotic poetry and bawdy limericks at 8 pm. Lots of other wonderful artists of course are in the mix. Chad Sorg has put together a little article that will appear in a Reno publication that I thought I'd share with you.
Chad Sorg, NadaDada's Ignoble Wringmaster is a freelance author and will be starting his campaign to give (yes, give) away his mixed-media paintings at NadaDada Motel. Roomless this year, he'll be blogging up to the minute from the event. www.FreeSorgs.org

If she hadn't died five years ago, Mum would have been 81 today. It's funny that both my brother and I picked the same photo to use for her obit ! She was funny, caustic, mean, loving, smart and silly and I miss her.

Come, jump through a wormhole with me.... Now if this isn't reason enough to come up to Reno June 18th to the 21st, I don't know what is! Unless of course it's little old me and you've heard rumors about that video installation....

Call this a little bit of pre-PR for one of the West's most intriguing art shows that is not associated with any kind of museum, art center or gallery! Yes, this DIY show, in it's third year being called NadaDada Motel, is redolent of Burning Man in its anarchic spirit of anything goes as well as in the quality of the art from the sacred to the profane. I've posted three digital mixed media pieces HERE that were created for Nada Motel, as last year's event was christened. Not only will I have those prints for sale and a limited number of orders for the work printed on canvas, but I will also have some great posters by Cherie Hacker from her "Sex Sells, Art Starves" series, Jewlery by Cyn Stones and a video installation. Cynthia Burdick, artist behind Cyn Stones is also an actor, like myself, and we'll be performing some scenes from "Dancing with Desire: A Poetic Fandango with the Erotic and the Bawdy'! It will be before the burlesque. NadaDada runs from June 18th to the 21st at the El Cortez Hotel, 2nd and Arlington in downtown Reno, NV. Hope we see you there!
I've got a digital collage painting on the home page for Absolute Arts! Check it out here. You'll have to scroll to the bottom of the page and I'm on the right at the bottom. Will be interested to see if this increases the number of people coming to my page and if anything sells!
