A fresh start...
This past month has been one big, exhilarating whirlwind. I've been so quiet lately because I started a new job in mid-December. I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that I've accepted a position as the Executive Director of Tioga County Council on the Arts. Many of you know that I grew up, and now live, in a picturesque little town on the Susquehanna River- Owego, New York. PRH and I moved back to this area several years ago, purchased and started renovating an abandoned farm, and, with this position, have finally gotten to the point where everything seems to fit. I'm really (really!) happy, my friends. There are moments in your life when everything just feels right...this is one of those moments.
Some kids wanted to be firefighters or ballerinas or chefs when they grew up...I wanted to be the director of the Arts Council (they organized- and continue to organize- all of the events that I loved as a child). And guess what?! It actually happened!!! Can you believe that?! It's going to be awesome. More than anything, I'm excited to have the opportunity to make a difference in my beautiful, creative hometown. I love Owego! TCCA's first exhibition in 2013 is a solo exhibition of paintings by my super talented friend, Jim DeLucia. You won't want to miss it (more info coming soon).
Wish me luck! Oh, and please 'like' TCCA on Facebook, follow along on Twitter, stop into the gallery and say hello, and stay tuned! I'm thrilled. Woooo hoooooo!!!
