The Long Way Home

In one weeks time I'll be ready for our journey! My son Juno and I will be making the 8 hour drive from Durango to my hometown, Arvada (a suburb of Denver). While we plan to spend a lot of time with family and friends, I will be dedicating most of our week-long stay to giving a workshop. 

The venue for this workshop, The Arvada Center of the Arts and Humanities, holds a special spot in my memory. As a young child I took many field trips to the Arvada Center whether it was to see a play, take an art class, view an exhibition, explore the extensive pioneer museum, or just for a picnic I always looked forward to the next visit.

Now, fifteen years after moving away, I am excited and honored to be able to offer something back to the community from which I came.

To start off the workshop I will be giving a FREE slide talk on Thursday June, 25th from 7-8:30 PM at the Arvada Center (see map below), I will show images from my travels and will discuss my inspirations and motivations behind my work. The slide talk is open to the public, so if you or anyone you know is in the area come on by!

The main part of the workshop will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 27th & 28th. For details please follow this link to the Arvada Center workshop description page. To register for the workshop contact the Arvada Center directly (contact info below).  Hope to see you there!
