We cannot believe it has been one year since the Join + Cast Field Guide release! And what a year it has been!
SO WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?
Jennifer has a new publication, a children's book called Yeti Leaves Home!
Read about it here! http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/jackalope/2012/03/local_artists_hoping_to_fund_c.php
AND HERE! http://yetileaveshome.tumblr.com/She was also named one of Arizona's TOP 100 CREATIVES of 2012! http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/jackalope/2012/05/jennifer_campbell_phoenix_artist_100_creatives.php
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 http://openengagement.info/conference-information 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 http://www.stationnorth.org/
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 http://www.facebook.com/groups/185042848212373/ that uses Facebook to post Call for Artists and the Rise Project by Sentrock http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/jackalope/2012/06/phoenix_artist_sentrock_introd.php
We cannot forget about ArtLink http://artlinkphoenix.com/, 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...
ALL OF THE ARTISTS THAT MADE JOIN + CAST POSSIBLE!
