Prints are HERE! Sponges, Brasil, Open Studios Saturday / by Melanie Ida Chopko

From my newsletter...
What a trip to Brasil -  beautiful, confusing, nerve-wracking, joyous, bursting with music, bursting with paradox. I came back with a wider heart - call me up and we can have some mate and talk about it more, as I'm still working to shape it into songs. I painted and drew my way through the trip, completing WaterPost Subscriptions, which you can see the fruits of here.

Brasil Waterpost Prints

Prints for you!

With the help of Daruma Press, I've made a limited edition set of giclée prints of my favorite Brasil Waterpost paintings. Each print will have hand drawn/written variations. And, for my fellow coop dwellers, the Communal House Sponge Glossary is available too! 

We’re also hosting an open studios and opening at the Compound Gallery THIS SATURDAY June 6th, 6-9pm. Come sit at the feet of the stunning collage show by my studiomate Kate Mink, and join me in my studio for prints and snacks.

Pillow Forts and Closets

Last month I emerged grateful and healthy on the other side of my two (?!) hand injuries from the winter, and now back on the click track demo train. I should be done with them in the next week, and will share one or two of the process recordings with you. You can read about them, and lots of other things I think about, here on my a-few-times-a-week blog. And stay tuned there for the much more official recording project.

So much love,

Melanie
