Kate E. Austin Newsletter
July 8th, 2008
In the span of one week, I graduated from college with my Bachelor's degree in Art, started a new career, and moved in with my boyfriend! I am now Arts Writer for The Chronicle, a local weekly newspaper right down the street from my new apartment. I'm still settling in, but I'm very excited about it.
The change in routine and ridiculous heat we've been having has put my studio hours on hold for now, though. I'm trying to make it in when I can, but right now nothing is regular.
I am still Co-President of the North Country Arts Center. We are still looking for artists and crafters who are interested in our Colors of Fall Arts & Crafts Festival. Be in touch with me or visit the website at http://www.northcountryartscenter.org for an application! I am also coordinating the North Country Studios Tour, which is taking place August 9th & 10th. More on this event is available on the NCAC website as well.
Classes are all on hiatus until further notice. I am still available for one-on-one instruction this summer. To work something out, contact me at 353-2121 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
