In the Belly of the Archive

One foggy day in January artists Aida Fry and Cheryl Ritland, both interested in seeing the collection upfront and personal, joined me in the archive to help get the backlog of filing closer to completion. Because of the volume and so many different aka's to research the work moves steady but slow. Both women are professionals in the interior design field and appreciated the artistic output.

So to everyone keep up the good work and long live artistamps. Perhaps Aida and Cheryl may make their own issues soon.


Cheryl admires the artwork.



Aida is reorganizer plus!

I made it to the T's! Holding T.H.E. Hill submission.

My Friend Catherine Asks



Say, I noticed that you haven't added anything new to http://artistampmuseum.blogspot.com/ since July and so am wondering if maybe you are winding down your artistamp sheet collecting activity?

I sent you a sheet a few months ago that's not posted yet, and now I have a couple new artistamp sheets, but am wondering if I should send them or not?


HI Catherine –
Glad to hear from you. Not winding down just been focused on getting the Inter DADA book out (140 pages of art mired with tech issues along the way) and then a series of shows/exhibits, new photo works, and now holidays. Behind the scenes been filing works and reorganizing binders – out grown ones – and hope to get some help with this. One day of help so far which means it goes at a snail’s pace. My other blogs doc more on my latest.

So short answer is yes keep sending!


Happy Holidaze, Everyone!

Eleanor Kent 1931 - 2014



Eleanor Kent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area artists to make artistamps has died. Her work with fractals is documented in her artiststamps. I met Eleanore in 1980 during her participation in my Copy Art Exhibition. She let many local artists make copy art on her copier in the 80s and we shared an interest in the artistic use of technology.
