Join + Cast UPDATE!

We cannot believe it has been one year since the Join + Cast Field Guide release! And what a year it has been! 

Jennifer has a new publication, a children's book called Yeti Leaves Home!
She was also named one of Arizona's TOP 100 CREATIVES of 2012!
Buy the Book! It is really lovely!

Catherine has been away in Baltimore working toward her MFA in Curatorial Practice at MICA!
Most recently she was spotted with Join + Cast contributors Gregory Sale and John Spiak in Portland, Oregon for the Open Engagement Conference in which she received a Research Grant from MICA.
She has been working on several projects since her move to the east coast including uncommonplace at in/flux Gallery, a light box at The Temporary and the upcoming show INVITED in the Station North Arts and Entertainment District

After a great 2 years of work on the Join + Cast Field Guide, Jennifer and Catherine have decided that Phoenix has some great artists who are continuing the education of contemporary art! We are thinking of projects like stART Something that uses Facebook to post Call for Artists and the Rise Project by Sentrock
We cannot forget about ArtLink, A.E. England Gallery and the many volunteers pushing arts in Phoenix!

With that, Jennifer and Catherine have decided to move on from Join + Cast. We have learned so much from this project, which started with a push from Angela Ellsworth and Gregory Sale! We want to thank Linda Essig, Muriel Magenta and p.a.v.e for giving us the opportunity to explore such a venture! M. Jenae Sanchez and Cory Weeks at A.E. England Gallery, the support from family and friends and last but not least...

Man we have been slacking with the blogging!

Just a little update because we have been so buried in getting the book absolutely perfect, Cathy and I appear to have dropped off the face of the planet for a while. We have certainly encountered our fair share of obstacles in the design to get the book to it's final print stage including; bleed disasters, computer viruses and all in all the guide morphing into a monstourous book that neither of us could of ever planned for.

But I have to say.
And maybe this makes me sound like a pretentious a-hole...

That the Join and Cast guide looks amazing.

And it is printing in thanks to the amazing Dale at Complete Print Shop.
We have decided that because the book is something like a whopping 268 pages, and we can only print out around 100 copies, that all money made on the first print will go back into further printing of the book.

Yay! Further updates as they happen!
