For those who weren’t there, the opening was a smash. We were pretty much packed to the gills till midnight. I suppose that’s what you get when you have 31 artists included in a show. 31 artists with roughly 31 pieces each, so over 900 pieces of art in that space. It was a glowing evening of good-vibes and vibrant colors.
If you’d like to see more of the show check out Bethany DeLahunt’s photos here: You Are So Great. Bethany was also a participant in the show (she did the Failed Calendar which did well to cheer up those who were down on themselves from not getting their shit together).
A Full list of participants (in absolutely no order) is as follows so they can google themselves and have this (at least) show up: Ali Pate, Lauren Kostelnick. Andrew Lyman, Sarah Skenazy, Martha McGinnis, Ben Wood, Bradford Erickson, Bethany DeLahunt. David Cudney, Avery Kapala, Eva Avenue. Liza Bley. Andy Keane, Reina Patrick, Janice Kostelnick, Maggie Siebert, Robin McClannahan, Seth Matlick, Shantal DuBois, Alex Martin, Sofia Eleftheriou, Stacey Heim, John Abbott, Ivy Anna Costello, Stephanie Galloway, Eli Wentzel-Fisher, Justine Maldonado, Jenny Hipscher, Rich Kaplan, Chris Molla, and Jessica Hayden.
Thanks everyone. Hope to see you and more next year.

I don’t know if I’ve explained this here yet, but I’ve been taking some computer science classes over at the big ole’ University here. Sort of a test for me, and for computer science to see if we like each other. The added benefit is that if we do get along, this’ll be the start of the road of me getting a higher education in the discipline. Anyhow, some of the assignments are of the fun variety, and from time to time I’ll post them here for kicks.
The following was the first big assignment from my Data Organization in C class. In it we were given strings of 18 characters. We had to split these up into nine two-digit values that compose a theoretical 3×3 grid. Some of the values in the strings we were given were missing, so it was up to us to programatically go through and fill in those missing values.
This was possible because in a solvable grid, all rows, columns, and diagonals would sum up to the same number and no values would repeat. So if we could check the sums against each other we could iterate through combinations of missing values until a solution set was produced. I’ve so far brute-forced my way to the solution with nine(!) nested loops. Perhaps I’ll post my program in a bit.

Today’s the Day. Tonight’s the Night! Fun-A-Day ABQ at the Normal Gallery. 31 Artists. 31 Pieces each.

So Fun-a-Day Projects are wrapping up. We’ve got a lot (over 20!) of people saying they’ve got work to be included in the show, so it’s going to be an interesting time. Many fell off the wagon (more than a few times) but many others soldiered on, creating a month’s worth of art. We’re really excited to host this show at the Normal next Friday. If you’re anywhere near Albuquerque, come say and see hello.
