This summer has been the sweatiest summer of my entire life, I am 100% on this claim.
In addition to working in a hot little kitchen, I have been tending a garden plot started by Tara Megos, and I slaved away with Craig Bowers for a good few weeks to pull together our first show (which ended up being a big group, 65+) titled: VEND SEND MEND at Sub-Basement Artist Studios in Baltimore.
We had great entries made from all over the world and it was a thrill to see each new entry make its way over in the mailman's mail hands. It just so happened that on the same night of our opening, July 1st, there was an R. Kelly concert at the 1st Mariner and traffic was total shit. Some have told me that they were stuck in traffic heading over to the show and decided to just give up and get some ice cream instead. For all those who stood in traffic because they were trying to make it to the Vend Send Mend opening: I love you.
Thank you Jefferey Kent and Jennifer Tam at Sub-Basement! You guys are the best.
