I was able to do a short segment on News 12’s On the Road program yesterday. I rolled out the Paper Litho and got to talk about the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. Materials and links Click here to see the segment (if you subscribe to certain cable carriers) and here is the handout for your own Paper Litho pleasure.
I have been chosen to be the new Director of the Studio School of the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. I am leaving my position of Assistant Professor at the New York City College of Technology and am relocating my family and studio in the Maplewood, NJ area sometime in the next year. I will continue to teach for Parsons the New School in the AAS program for as long as that fine institution will have me–this coming year, I am teaching online classes for them. Until the transition is complete, I remain active on the Steering Committee of the Gowanus Studio Space and continue work on my long-running Monstress Mid-Living suite. My work with the EAT lab is still underway, albeit a bit slowed by all the changes.
