 SKYLyfeADK - JACKIE AND KEVIN WOODCOCK - 05/09-26/19

“Where Humanity and Nature Unite” - SKYLyfeADK was born out of Love for the tiny life keepers we call bees and butterflies. It is our mission to bring awareness to the plight of these creatures, in hopes of conserving their lives and global importance. We offer non-invasive Services that help in the conservation of their existence, continued growth in population and that allow the public to share in the magical presence of these creatures. 

Meet the artists Friday, May 24th at 5pm - Jackie and Kevin will be on site to talk about their work - free and open to all!

“What’s new in your world?” the gentleman abruptly asked of me at the onset of our brief interaction. I suppose I always have trouble answering that question. Like when someone says, “what’s up?” - it’s not really a question – yes, there is an answer, but “what’s up?” is more like saying “hello” than “how are you?”. This gentleman’s matter-of-fact delivery forced an answer out of me. I proceeded to tell him that I was working on writing-up this exhibition proposal; the “newest” thing I could think of. After stumbling over my words and describing a bare bones concept of “we’re looking for submissions of original diagrams and maps” he sort of grumbled: “Hmm.” And that was that. I had a hard time explaining it because it wasn’t formulated yet. I was hunched over my keyboard with barley the first sentence started; details actively being worked out. Now suppose if this was written and printed-out already, I could have handed it to him to read and there’s more of a likelihood he would have had a better understanding of the concept of the exhibition; a more concrete description to work with. Now, what if I had a drawn diagram to hand him? Or a map? What would that look like? How could I have distilled down my concept into a visual aid rather than into words or writing? Otto’s Abode – an Art-Centric Travel Agency and Inconvenience Store – is seeking submissions of original diagrams and maps. This could be diagram of how you make your coffee in the morning or a map of a bizarre walking ritual you find yourself participating in day after day. This is essentially an exhibition of drawings. Your submission could be anything from a doodle scribbled on a napkin to a computer-rendered and framed masterpiece. Take a look around your world.
