Listen to My Live Interview on NHPR’s Word of Mouth This Thursday



On Thursday, June 21st, I’ll be appearing on NHPR’s Word of Mouth with host Virginia Prescott. We’ll be discussing a number of arts-related topics, so I hope you’ll tune in.

The show runs from 12-1 p.m. EST; I’ll be appearing in the 12:30-1:00 time slot. If you can’t listen to the radio, you can also listen live online or after the broadcast. The show will also be rebroadcast from 9-10 p.m. Thursday night. Please tune in!

I have some new stories in the works for Gwarlingo readers. I’ve just returned from New York City, where I had a sneak preview of a fabulous new documentary about actor and theater director Andre Gregory. This morning I’m in Gloucester, Massachusetts, covering two visual arts stories. It’s been a busy summer, but I’m looking forward to sharing these discoveries with Gwarlingo readers soon.

The best way to stay in the loop is to subscribe to Gwarlingo by email. (It’s easy, safe, and free). You can also follow Gwarlingo on Twitter and Facebook.

About the Author:

I’ve spent almost 20 years helping thousands of successful artists of all disciplines and working to make the arts more accessible. (One friend likes to call me “the arts enabler.”) From 1999-2012 I worked at The MacDowell Colony, the nation’s oldest artist colony, but I've also done time at an arts magazine, a library, an art museum, and a raptor rehabilitation center. In May of 2012 I left MacDowell to pursue writing, speaking, curating, and creative projects full-time. In 2015 I was named a “Top 100 Artist, Innovator, Creative” by Origin magazine. I've appeared as an arts and culture commentator on New Hampshire Public Radio, and in 2017 I was the recipient of the Wampler Art Professorship at James Madison University. I am the founder of the Gwarlingo Salon series, which connects artists like DJ Spooky with rural audiences in the Monadnock region. In 2017 my collaborator Corwin Levi and I will publish our first book, Mirror Mirrored, which combines Grimms’ fairy tales with vintage illustration remixes and the work of contemporary artists like Kiki Smith, Carrie Mae Weems, and Amy Cutler. I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, but have called New Hampshire home since 1999. My studio is located in the historic, mill village of Harrisville. I miss fried okra, the early southern spring, and restaurants that stay open past 9:00 p.m., but rural life agrees with me. In New Hampshire I can see the stars, go kayaking or snowshoeing, watch bald eagles fish in the lake, and focus on my creative work in silence. I no longer have to worry about traffic jams; deer, wild turkeys, and frost heaves are the primary road hazards here. Although I live in the country, I’m fortunate enough to be part of a vibrant arts community that extends beyond this small New England village. The quiet days are punctuated by regular travel and frequent visits to museums, theaters, readings, arts events, lectures, and open studios around the country. (You can read my full CV here.) Thanks for visiting Gwarlingo. I hope you'll be in touch.

    Hey – what time zone does the “12:30 – 1” refer to? Or is it time zone-independent? would like to catch this as it’s happening.

      Hi Clara. Thanks for asking! It’s 12:30-1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. I hope you’ll tune in!
