CROWDFUNDING WORKSHOPS

Here’s a great opportunity to jumpstart your crowdfunding campiagns to fund your artist projects!

MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists coordinates several professional development workshops and invited me to offer two online crowdfunding sessions for artists of all types in MA, CT & RI.

Tune in October 6 or November 15 to learn useful strategies for successful crowdfunding.


REIMAGINED HISTORIES

Tune in to my discussion with Margo Saulnier in the latest episode of New Bedford Creative.

Whalebone corsets, polyester bellbottoms, children’s imaginings, museum visits, domestic labors, whaling profits, and needlework samplers. The historic Rotch-Jones-Duff House & Garden Museum has held all this and more.

With more than 30 artworks throughout the home, my exhibit built on and dug into aspects of the RJD and its histories. You’ll find references to fashion, family members, infant mortality, domestic staff, whaling, and more.

Reimagined Histories ran from March through June, 2021.

Enjoy the online artist talk with a behind-the-scenes look at my work and the making of Reimagined Histories at the RJD:

VERMONT UTOPIAS: IMAGINING THE FUTURE

When Bennington Museum invited me to imagine the future of Vermont through my art, I was flummoxed. What could I do with old photographs to speak to the future? When my husband, Greg Scheckler, made these awesome drawings for the exhibit, I found my idea.

Here’s one of Greg’s drawings imagining a Smool Robotics Corporation that’s basically overtaken Vermont:

Sketches from David’s Report on What He Did Last Summer in Bennington, Vermont, by Greg Scheckler

My contribution imagines the 19th century progenitors of Smool Robotics and and one of their first inventions:

Two Historic Sparks That Ignited Smool Robotics

This exhibition took place in December 2020 as a Bennington Museum fundraising auction featuring work by 25 contemporary artists. It’s a great annual show you might want to put in your calendar for 2021 🙂

Listen in as curator Jamie Franklin and I chat about my art, my book, and more.
