The artist and gallerist behind Philadelphia's Peep Projects takes us along on one day in the city she calls home (with a stop for donuts along the way).

7:00 AM

I woke up at with a cat on my lap. I spent some time watering the outdoor plants. I answered emails and worked on some grant applications.

10:00 AM

I made a trip to Lowe's (the place that takes all of my money) to pick up some metal rods for a new painting. I also purchased a faux gold watering can that I didn’t have the strength to resist.

11:30 AM

I grabbed an iced coffee at Franny Lou’s Porch. The names of their specialty lattes (like Toni Morrison and Angela Davis) are reason enough to stop in.

12:00 PM

I visited the artist Sarah Pater’s beautiful studio. She will be in the summer group show at Peep opening in June.

1:00 PM

I visited Molly Metz's studio in Kensington. I saw her work at Fleisher/Ollman and was excited to meet her and see her new work. Her work was on Platform with Fleisher/Ollman in March.

2:00 PM

Donut time! I treated myself to Okie Dokie donuts–one was served warm and tasted like a funnel cake dream. The grapefruit mint lemonade was very refreshing.

2:30 PM

I worked in my studio for the rest of the day while listening to music–mostly to Wet Leg.

8:00 PM

My friend Saskia Fleshman, another artist based in Philadelphia, invited me to a fundraising gala for the TILT Institute at the Sculpture Courtyard. I purchased a mystery print by a student in their educational program. We struggled to take a good photo in the dark. I was in bed by midnight.
