Yesterday, after spending the afternoon painting in the studio, I made risotto cakes for dinner, then headed over to Carole Zoom’s Studio for the closing reception of the Hiih Lights show.
This weekend, Carole is performing a spoken word piece she wrote in No One Wants to See the Wires. Along with Julie Osborn and Bill Alton, and directed by Curtis Walker, they tell the story of “what goes on behind the scenes when one lives with disabilities” (some adult content). There are two performances: Saturday, May 30th at 7 pm & Sunday, May 31 at 2 pm, 4625 SE 67th Ave, Portland.
At Carole’s studio, I met Elizabeth Arledge, and accepted an invitation to participate in a group art show benefitting Disability Rights Oregon on June 18, 2009. The reception features guest speaker Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown. The art work is for sale, with portions of the proceeds donated to Disability Rights Oregon.
