The Art of Burning Man, Cincinnati Exhibit

Here are just a few images from the Cincinnati Art Museum yesterday. The exhibit is called No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man. It’s spread out through galleries in different sections of the museum, so it’s interspersed with the regular collection. I thought this turned out really well.

My favorite was an installation called “Gamelatron Bidadari” by Aaron Taylor Kuffner. I couldn’t do it justice with a photo, since the sound is an essential part of the experience. It’s a peaceful, lovely piece — if you go, be sure to find this one!

Authors at the Loft Podcast

Here is a link to yourbookmybook.com, which has short featured podcasts from the authors who attended the recent event at the Book Loft in German Village. Mine is about 5 minutes long. I discuss a little about Color Mage (soon to be retitled Black Tide) and Sword of Jashan. The other podcasts are interesting, too — check them out if you have a chance!

 

A Beautiful Sunday at Authors at the Loft

After days of rain and severe storms, the weather turned out to be great on Sunday for Authors at the Loft at the Book Loft in German Village. I was fortunate enough to meet some new local authors and readers. Here are a couple of images taken by author Lasondra Burks.

Columbus Arts Festival

It’s almost June, and that means the Columbus Arts Festival is not far away. In addition to the many visual artists’ tents lining the streets, there is a “Word Is Art” tent where authors and poets read from their work. I’m happy to say that this year I’ll be on the schedule!

I’ll be doing a short reading (probably 10 minutes) from my upcoming new stand-alone fantasy novel, Taylenor. The time slot is from 11-12 on Sunday, June 9 — but the tent is active all weekend, and you can check out many other creatives reading from their stories or poetry.

Here’s a link to the arts festival website, with lots of visitor information, maps, etc. If you love art, and if you’re in the area, this is an event worth attending!

Also, this deer will be there (photo from 2017).

Authors at the Loft

I’ll be one of several authors at the Book Loft on June 2 for Authors at the Loft, an event that highlights independent and published authors. There will be opportunities to get books signed and readings at this free family event. The event is sponsored by YourBookMyBook.com. 

The Book Loft is a Columbus treasure and a great place for an event like this! I’m looking forward to it! For more info, including a list of authors, here’s a link to the event page on Facebook.

Pictures from Basel

Here are a few images from my recent trip to Basel, Switzerland. Basel is located on the Rhine and has a beautiful Old Town and Basel Minster, a Catholic Cathedral (now a Protestant Church) that was built between 1020 and 1500.

Georgsturm and Martinsturm, the two towers of Basel Minster.

Snow Day February 2019 (image)

Here’s an evergreen tree, holding the snow in little cups. This is usually a scraggly tree, but it’s beautiful today.
