Peter Iannarelli, Elia Gurna, Angelika, I and soccer mom Curry Mendes piled into Curry's Mom's minivan and headed over to last year's For Artist's Only event. We had an excellent time - we didn't mix with as many folks as we should have, but it was a chance to get to the museum, which we don't do enough. Last year's event was very well attended, and there is an opportunity to show your portfolio, and see the portfolios of many regional artists.
I am in the middle of a month long stint out in Denver currently, so if anyone is able to attend the salon tonight and wants to report back on it, I would welcome that very much.
The same holds true for the events of the April Second Saturday. If anyone has images of openings or events, like the Cafe Chronogram held at the Muddy Cup, or Keisendahl and Calhoun's return to Beacon with an exhibit at the Next Level Gallery at Hudson Beach Glass, let me know.

On a different Sol Lewitt tangent, it's been several months since the artist's cinderblock forms were deinstalled from the lawn of Max Protetch Gallery's 'Sculpture Beacon' location. Some time back, I inquired via email whether the gallery planned any future installations, but I received no reply. The webpage dedicated to the Beacon outpost on the gallery's website no longer exists, although there is a mention of the 2003 creation of the site on the gallery's history page

The story of two mismatched "Little League Dads" with opposing philosophies
toward competition and success, Rounding Third is a comedy about parenthood and
America's cultural values.
Playwright Richard Dresser began writing Rounding Third when his son's Little
League coach suggested that a slower player fake an injury as part of the team's
strategy for winning. "I was horrified," Dresser wrote in an Introduction to the
play. "Is this how our children are being trained to deal with competition? How
many future Enrons are brewing on our Little League fields and in our school
gyms under the watchful eyes of over-zealous coaches? What about building
character and encouraging fair play? Or are such notions laughable in this
country at this point in history? At that moment I knew that I had to write
