City Wide Open Studios: I recently participated in this program along with a host of other Saint Louis creatives. The Open Studios weekend included having one of my paintings displayed at the Contemporary Art Museum. Below is a description of the program taken from the CAM website:
This summer CAM takes you into artist studios across St. Louis with our 6th Annual City-Wide Open Studios. City-Wide Open Studios offers a unique opportunity for the St. Louis public to explore the creative and personal spaces of local artists while providing the ability to enjoy one of the most exciting parts of contemporary art – the chance to talk with the artists themselves. The CWOS program consists of a series of events and tours. Through the CWOS program local artists are connected to the museum, while the museum connects participating artists to the larger community.
Spanning some of St. Louis’ most diverse and energetic neighborhoods like St. Louis City, University City, and Maplewood, over 160 local artists invite the public to a behind-the-scenes look at some of the coolest and most creative spaces that St. Louis has to offer. Visitors are invited to tour the various spaces all weekend and find out what kind of creative invention happens behind closed doors. There is no fee and no reservations required to visit these artist studios. CAM will provide a printed map of every participating artist studio so visitors are able to navigate the urban landscape and visit any, and all, of the artist studios of their choosing.
Eleven Magazine: I review shows and shoot concert photography for Eleven. The content is either posted online or run in their print magazine. Recently I had the opportunity to photograph a Stalley show. Within the next few months I plan on shooting Dead Prez, Bilal, Questlove, and Dom Kennedy. Here’s a link to Eleven’s Site: http://elevenmusicmag.com/
Personal Work: I’m working on some projects that are currently in the very early stages of development. One of those is on androgyny/gender ambiguity. Updates on personal projects and random photography/musings can be found on my blog: http://jeneverett.wordpress.com/
