a clear midnight…

 
‘This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless, 
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best.
Night, sleep, and the stars.’
 

Walt Whitman (A Clear Midnight from the poetry collection Leaves of Grass, 1900)

 

On Friday 29th June I was fortunate to be interviewed for WGXC Greene and Columbia Counties Community Radio, by writer and arts journalist Deborah Artman. It was another hot, bright day in the Catskill mountains and Deborah travelled up the steep mountain pass to the Platte Clove Cabin to meet me. We sat in the shade of the cabin’s porch and chatted for over an hour-and-a-half as we gazed out over the deep woods. The edited interview was broadcast on the afternoon of 4th July.

Based in the town of Catskill, the Greene County Council on the Arts publishes Arts Alive – a free bi-monthly newspaper. The July/August issue of Arts Alive prominantly features the Whale Oil to Whole Foods eco-art exhibition project. You can read the newspaper in PDF format via this link…

guests at Matt Bua’s ‘NoToMushMu’ (No Tools Mushroom Museum)’ in the Siuslaw Model Forest, during the ‘Whale Oil to Whole Foods’ opening on 8th July

It was the Whale Oil to Whole Foods private view opening at the Cornell Agroforestry Centre and Siuslaw Model Forest on the evening of Sunday 8th July. The turn-out for the event was wonderful – over 50 guests enjoyed good company, good food and most importantly some good, provocative art – all in good measure! On the evening, journalist Susan Campriello attended the opening to write an article on the exhibition for the Greene County local newspaper The Daily Mail. Susan interviewed a number of the artists, including myself. You can read the article on-line here…
