We had another snow storm yesterday and Hwy 64/87 is now open after being closed since 2:30 am yesterday.
I'm writing cozy at home where the inspiration is warm and toasty...
even as sparkling snow drifts are calling me to come with the snow shovel.
Snow drifts and bone chilling cold do not however stop the processes of creativity!
News from Yvonne O'Brien, one of Studio C's artists, is that she will be the juror for the the Ralph Solano Memorial Photography Show presented by The Raton Arts & Humanities Council. The prospectus is available with an entry deadline of April 2. Congratulations photographers! Yvonne will do a wonderful job in this role.
I'm taking a trip to Santa Fe in April to attend The Arts in Crisis a symposium presented by The Kennedy Center, Santa Fe Symphony and Chorus and The Santa Fe Opera at Stieren Hall on Tuesday April 13th. The event will give local arts organizations, advocates and citizens an opportunity to hear information presented by Kennedy Center president Michael Kaiser though their Arts in Crisis: A Kennedy Center Initiative and to dialogue with him during a morning event. Mr. Kaiser "will address the challenges facing non-profit performing arts organizations today though such areas as fundraising, building more effective Boards of Trustees, budgeting, and marketing." I'll be attending with three other local arts advocates, filling my Kia Optima with interested individuals. I have two seats still available so if you are in the Raton area and are interested in taking this day trip with me please email to reserve your seat. If we get more we'll make it a caravan!
Remember that Saturday is Live @ Studio C! our first gathering since our Show of Gratitude in November. We'll have our open mike and a storytelling circle so come with news to share, hearts open to songs and tales from friends and neighbors, and musical instruments to liven up the evening.
If you are in Trinidad you could decide to stay in town and see Jim Jones at Concerts for Causes event held Saturday March 27th at A Little Catering Company. Check out the poster for details.
So, that's my news for the week. I'll look forward to hearing your tales at Live @ Studio C! Saturday evening.... and if you come to this site from far off, feel free to leave a comment and even a poem or a song. I may even read it for you at the show.
Stay Warm and Give Thanks for all you enjoy~
