Marking 3 Years

I moved to Trinidad in mid June 2020, and opened 221B Gallery at the end of 2021. I've had the pleasure of presenting work from Steven Benson (Orlando, Florida), Hans Droog (Trinidad, soon St. Louis), Jo-Anne Green (Boston), Sheigla Hartman (Trinidad), Bonnie Lambert (Helena, Montana), Bobby Neel Adams (Bisbee, Arizona), Robert Welkie (Los Angeles) and Jennifer Korsen (Los Angeles - who also created a mural on an exterior gallery wall). Work from Ken Abbott (Asheville, North Carolina) goes up tomorrow. 

Raven, my faithful companion for 9 years who traveled with me to ten states, passed away in April. 



 
10 week old Tyche arrived in the household at the beginning of June, and siblings Anton Chekhov (male tabby) and Ava Gardner (female calico) are not thrilled about having to baby-sit a third dog, and have to train another from the beginning.....

Things are rapidly changing in Trinidad with an expansion of businesses downtown, a new Hilton about to open, Fishers Peak opening new trails and the East Street School now open and under the umbrella of Redline.

If you are reading this and a bit more curious about what I get involved in more often, you can go to 221BGallery.com (which is also on FB) or JaketheSheik on IG.

A New Direction

Marshall and I went to Alaska together in 2010. The vehicle that we traveled in (Marshall's Sprinter) was so enjoyable that I bought one in late summer 2011, and have begun to make frequent trips around the west. Right now, Marshall and Bonnie are in Marfa, Texas (on Facebook, check out "A Month in Marfa.") Next month, we're going to begin and post a website of postcards between artists, dating back to the early 1970s. I'm probably going to launch a new blog in the next couple of months.....travels around the west, and my work on the archives of photographers L.H. ("Ben") Benschneider, and Robert C. Bishop. Stay tuned.

Toad River Lodge, Saturday 28 August - POSTSCRIPT

A A collection of over 6,800 hats stapled to the ceiling throughout the restaurant....and growing. One of the stories associated with the place is the origin of the name....The Alaska highway was constructed in 10 months, 1942-43. One version of "Toad River" is that the engineers had to tow supplies and materials across at that particular point, and it somehow got bastardized from "towed" to "toad." There are many such strange stories and origins to the naming of places in Alaska.              (I mean, why was Denali originally called McKinley? (other than his recent assassination....he never visited the place.)
