Editor’s Desk: April 2018

March 31 / 18

Vol. 6 / #4

We’re moving right along into the month of April. Yes, Spring has arrived and it’s time to do some Spring stuff, creative and artistically wise.

I’ve been tracking down contests, residencies in art and literature. For literature, I’ve found several that may be of interests to those who love to write. The Fine Arts Works Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts is gearing for an eventful Summer. Their 24 Pearl Street Online Writing Program is already starting, along with their Summer Workshops. All will be revealed this month.

If you have deep pockets and I mean seriously deep pockets, then Swann Auction Galleries will be the place to test those pockets. They are having their Auction of African-American Fine Art, April 5, at 2:30 pm. The 25th Annual Benefit and Award Ceremony will be taking place later on this month New York City. All details will be coming soon.

Artexpo New York 2018 is coming. You still have a chance to get tickets to this event. The dates are April 19-22 in NYC Pier 94. More information will be posted soon.

Cardi B, Amanda Palmer, Willie Nelson, Kylie Minogue, Janelle Monae, and others are releasing new music for April, thanks to Metacritic. April also has a handful of music festivals coming, most notably Coachella, which is pretty much around the corner.

I’m also on the hunt for Games, Film, Fashion, and other great things. Almost forgot, there are some great reads to discover for Spring.

What’s up for Shadow Spotlight? Well, I think you may just like where I’m going with it this month.

This month I’m going to talk about procrastination. It can happen to anyone, even creative people and it’s this month’s Creative Close-Up. I’m doing something new for Shadowboxerinc. There will be a new post called The Archives where we’ll be visiting some Reflection and Creative Close-Up posts from last year, the year before that, and so on. Ready for April? I am!

Goodbye March 2018…Hello, April 2018.
