Being a hermit in Greensboro is a great pastime of mine. I use the excuse (to myself and others) 1. I’m making work, the work comes first 2. I need a rest or break 3. It’s okay its just ( insert reason here). When all is said and done seeing the work is what really matters, personally I end up feeling guilty about not going to see a friend, colleague, or students work. As a working artist, (by that I mean I have at least one day job) I think “going to everything” as John Cage put it, is a an important rule all artists should follow. After reading Guidelines for Openings by Andrew Berardini from Paper Monuments book, I like your work: art and etiquette, I believe my part time hermit occupation is over.
