Today I'm meeting with the head librarian of the Indiantown Library and Sandy Newville, the woman who is putting words to my images. Because the original exhibit is just around the corner, I suggested that we do a continuance at a later date in 2014. I'm looking at other grant opportunities in which to help with printing, framing, and brochures. I may seek out local businesses to gauge their interest. This little forgotten town has quite a history which has never been explored before. I hope we do it justice.

In case I haven't mentioned it, I have been accepted into both the Viva Florida 500 juried exhibit at the Elliott Museum and Cultural Courthouse in Stuart, Florida, and the 100% Pure Florida exhibit at 5th Avenue Gallery in Melbourne, Florida. I'm hoping this will open up more doors to other exhibition venues, as well as possible collectors of my work. Both exhibits begin in early September. Just have to keep you posted as to the results.

"Too often, state, local, and even national government actors do not consider the long-term consequences of their decisions. Local governments allow unchecked growth because it increases tax revenue, but these same governments do not sufficiently plan for the resources such unchecked growth will require. Nor do individual citizens consider frequently enough their consumption of our scarce resources absent a crisis situation".
