When I heard about the position of Artist in Residence, I seriously never thought I would be appointed this position. I applied, but did not tell anyone. I just thought I would give it a shot, but probably would not be picked. I went to two interviews and when the decision was made that `I got the job', I sat in the car, by myself, smiling and whooping. Imagine someone sitting alone in their car basically high-fiving themselves. It is an understatement to say how excited I am!
I've begun working on two projects. First, with the help of my new friend Georgia (from the Fairfax Volunteers), we are organizing a Friday night art show that will include merchants, a scavenger hunt and tons of local artisans. More info about this event coming soon. Second, I am working on a photo project called Faces of Fairfax, which will highlight many of the towns public servants!
In addition to an art show and photo project, I recently had fun photographing a real live tea party with all the character in Alice in Wonderland. This fantastic event was put on by the Fairfax Theater Company. Here are some photos of the absolutely amazing event.
