Anonymous yet personal, this Blog chronicles
the daily events and musings of Jim.
It provides an easy way for his friends and family to check in on him,
and serves as a online repository for his random
thoughts, kaleidoscopic flashbacks, and writings on an array of diverse topics.
“Deconstructing Jim” is simply here to
entertain you, but not intended for college credit.

The STATE of CLAY 2009

The Lexington Arts & Crafts Society (founded in 1935) had a gallery opening and reception on Sunday.

It was their sixth biennial juried show for Massachusetts-based clay artists.

78 pieces were on display, and those were selected by juror Jim Lawton from a pool of 106 artist applications and 285 entries.

There was an amazing variety of work.

The place was packed! Wall-to-wall art enthusiasts.

(I wish we could get crowds this large at contemporary music concerts! What are we doing wrong?)
