Our fall has been obscenely busy. I've started teaching and Lilly has been writing-up a storm. She is now a proud member of the AICA a professional association for art critics, while I'm now a active member of the ASA the association for aesthetics and the philosophy of art. In contrast to all this hoity-toity artsy stuff we've also been exploring the rural south more. Somewhere in the whirlwind of art, writing, and southern living we forgot to blog. But just so everyone knows we are still eating well and having fun here is a best of Fall 2012.
FRIENDS WORTH NOTING:
Lilly hanging with artist NikitaGale at a studio visit.
A hike up Stone Mountain with my sister Chloe and our friend Sarah...
Posing with my favorite photographer. Minnesota's own Alec Soth.
We were visited by a owl. Lilly is convinced this was an omen. I'm convinced he shouldn't be parked there.
Lilly and brothers on the Atlanta Belt Line.
Looking overly concerned at a Jason Kofke show. I actually did like it I swear.

SOUTH WORTH SOUTHING:

Duck hunting with the Lampe cousins. Outside of Oriental, NC. Rob and the retriever Colt heading home at dusk from a river blind.
Looks kinda like a Lands End catalog.
Lots more of course. But this at least gives a sense of the charachter and flavor of our fall.
