Exhibition of 3Tributaries + The Waday 4 w/ The Kenny Reichert Quartet

Just a reminder, I will be having a solo show of my thesis work in Milwaukee, directly after I graduate with my (first) masters degree in Baltimore. I have five days to get from here to there and put up the work. The opening will be on Saturday, August 6th from 6-9 pm. If you are in the Milwaukee area, please stop in for the art and the JAZZ (see details below). I will also have a community, all-ages, participatory art project for anyone that stops by!

Check it out Milwaukee!

Wade Ridenhour (guitar)
Aaron Darrell (bass)
Devin Drobka (drums)

My dear friend and mentor, Evelyn Patricia Terry, mentioned me on the Portal Wisconsin blog, in an entry celebrating the great contemporary folk artist, George Ray McCormick Sr.
" opening at the Jazz Gallery in Milwaukee, August 6, 2011, 6-9 p.m., with her thesis exhibition “3 Tributaries.” Shana R. Goetsch’s intense and provocative pieces, including 4,000 individual prints of row houses on one sheet of paper, challenge us to visually and emotionally connect to 4,000 victims of domestic violence."

An Upcoming Event from Evelyn Patricia Terry

An announcement I got in the mail that I will pass along (and I am showing here as well):

EVENT: GALLERY DAY/George Ray McCormick Celebration
Location: Terry McCormick Gallery Contemporary Fine and Folk Art
Address:  2522 North 18th Street, Milwaukee, WI 53206
Date: July 30, 2011
Time: 12:00 noon - 5:00 pm

Although, I am working on more renovations of the Terry McCormick Gallery (porch, yard and floors), I will open the gallery on Gallery Day, July 30, to celebrate George Ray McCormick's life and creativity. He made his transition on July 30, 2009. There are several yard sculptures and bug creatures that he welded from  mixed media found objects. Some even have carved pieces intermixed. Also his portfolio includes many nk drawings and pencil sketches, which include a marvelous set of drawings that reflect his struggle with depression. He expressed a  desire for his work to move into museum and patron collections who focused on preserving the intuitive work of contemporary folk artists. Visitors also get the privilege of viewing his last body of work, the "Rooster Series." I will continue to search for the meaning of the work in his various writings. I know that he loved drawing chickens and birds. I discovered a statement about his desire to return as an Eagle. George often spoke to many people about his artwork. I would love to include statements to this end with the exhibition.

Included in that gallery exhibition is artwork by Ammar Nsoroma, Shana Goetsch, Jacqueline Richards, Ktinsley, Eamon Quinn Bridges, and Adjua Nsoroma and of course my work (Evelyn Patricia Terry)

A great time to begin a collection if you haven't started and a great time to add to your collection if you have.

I (mostly) wrote a press release for MICA's website about my thesis: Here it is, up on the website, thanks to Jessica in Communications:

The Dreaded Install

I am almost finished with the 4,000 collograph prints (400 more to go!), and have started to install my thesis show. Even while trying to be as simple as possible with my process, it's still a pain...I have all morning tomorrow, and all day Friday, so I think it should work out for me. The official opening is on Monday (we got bumped by Artscape), and we have an Artist Talk on Tuesday evening. I will take many photos, but until then, here is the announcement:

AND, we made this video teaser of MACA Team Awesome doing a "Power Walk". I totally made them do this, for funzies, because I have watched far too many tv dramas in my day...

This one is a short out takes piece. The opening shot is me (hilariously) busting through the Fox Building's doors...

(Both of these brilliant videos were created by fellow MACAn, Jessica Wyatt.)
