Remember our friend, Faelan? Have you wondered what he has been up to lately? If so, take a look at this http://vvikipedia.co/index.php?title=Aln_Void_Expeditionary_Committee. I am so honored to be the Chair of AVEC!
Jerry wants to send you a postcard of one of his favorite panels like the one above (minus the "watermark" label). Go to Ebay.com, search "Jerry's Map", and find the postcard listings. For $1.99 Jerry will inscribe a card to you, put a stamp on it, and drop it in the mailbox. A novel way to start your collection of Jerry's Map!
I've posted several Map prints on Ebay again. Take a look at them and buy a few! They are currently priced at $17.02. If they don't sell after a month they will be reduced by 20%.
All proceeds from the sale of Map items go directly back into making more Map.
So, support this project with a few of your dollars. Think of it as like crowd-sourcing. For a nominal contribution you get a beautiful print signed by Jerry!
I am in the process of interviewing candidates to replace Tyler. He is moving on to Grand Rapids where he is going to dazzle the local photography scene. I will miss his talent and steadfastness. He has been an important sounding board for me and has contributed immeasurably to my project. Thanks, Tyler!
We put together this time-lapse video of the most recent Map installation at the 516 Arts Gallery in Albuquerque, NM. It took a little over three days, lots of mounting tabs/putty, and a hydraulic lift. The show will be up until October 31st.
I have been 'live tweeting' daily with an image of the panel I'm working on for that day. This has been a part of my process for several months now - if you are on twitter, you can follow me @jerrysmap
Come along for a little tour of my studio..
We've been documenting some of my work in the studio and outdoors (which is something I haven't shared much about, but it is essential to my process). Busy summer days preparing for the exhibition at the end of the month in Albuquerque, NM, gardening, visitors, and recovering from a big storm last week.
Join us at the opening, August 29th from 6-8pm at the 516 Arts Gallery. Excited for this installation!
This morning I received an invitation to participate in a major Japanese art show next year. I happily accepted but haven't yet heard the details. I'll update the information as soon as I know more.
This original panel was beautifully framed recently by collector Phil O'Hara
Always searching for ways to make my project accessible I have just started offering, on Ebay, to mail you a Map postcard signed by me. For a couple of bucks the charming town of Hue can be guarding your desk or gracing your nightstand. Take a look by clicking that Ebay store link at the right. Of course if you want the real meat of the Map, original panels, they are available at the new website.
