Some might assume that the editors of ArtSake are, like Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way. (Other assumed similarities: that we carry coat racks in our handbags and frequently fraternize with chimney sweeps.) However, despite this appearance of practical perfection, we occasionally slip, missing important news when compiling our monthly Fellows Notes updates from past MCC fellows/finalists.
When you’ve recovered from the shock of this admission, here are some of the intriguing updates we left out of our recent September 2010 Fellows Notes post:
Three past fellows, Candice Smith Corby (Painting ’08), Cristi Rinklin (Drawing ’10), and Laurel Sparks (Painting ’04) are in the show Painting NOW, at the Grimshaw-Gudwicz Art Gallery at Bristol Community College, running September 9-October 21, 2010. There will be an opening reception Thursday, September 9, 6-8 PM.

Timothy Coleman (Crafts Finalist ’07) is exhibiting in the Society of Arts and Crafts Artist Award Exhibition in Boston.

She’ll be in the group show Water at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, Ketchum, Idaho from September 10 to November 5. And she’ll be among the artists participating in the South End Open Studios on September 25 and 26th. Anne’s studio, on 535 Albany Street, 4th Floor, will be open 12-5 PM both days.
