Jan. 31 / 17
“Wan February with weeping cheer,
Whose cold hand guides the youngling year
Down misty roads of mire and rime,
Before thy pale and fitful face
The shrill wind shifts the clouds apace
Through skies the morning scarce may climb.
Thine eyes are thick with heavy tears,
But lit with hopes that light the year’s.”
– Algernon Charles Swinburne, A Year’s Carols: February
Hi there, the first month of 2017 has passed. February is here. There is so much to cover this month. I’m not sure if all of it can fit in!
Alright, Spectrum Indian Wells is coming next month, March 16-19, 2017. We have the reminders: 4 Heads Portal, Artexpo New York, and AWP Conference & Bookfair.
Got some new music…speaking of that, last Friday I posted a segment called Cool. It was a spur of the moment thing. You try to come up with an idea, then bam, a great one pops up. This just happened. This segment will be posted at any time. I find something in art, photography, literature, film, music, fashion….and on and on.
Pat McGrath is this month’s Shadow Spotlight, fashion’s most influential make-up artists and an inspiration for being a Black Woman Pioneer. As you know, it’s Black History Month, so I’m going to pepper the site with lots influential African-Americans who shaped our past, present, and future.
I have two film reviews that I want to share with you, plus there will be an interesting Creative Close-Up post. Vancouver is the last stop for @ The Event. Lastly, we know Valentine’s Day will be here soon, so let’s celebrate by focusing on love…creatively.
Goodbye January, Hello February!
