Ladies' Knight: A Female Perspective on Chess

Hola darlings!

I'm still alive and kicking, just been busy with other projects and the summer social scene.  In SE Wisconsin we must get things in while the weather cooperates, because Goddess knows once winter hits some time in (I hope late) November I'll be mostly at home for 6 months.  I've got another visit with Isis in Las Vegas coming up in mid November and I don't want my flight to be grounded by bad weather.  I'm gambling that a blizzard won't hit on either my trip out or my trip back and that the weather in Vegas holds in the mid-70's during the day while I'm there.  It is, of course, a craps shoot, har :)  

Got an email about this new exhibit at the World Chess Hall of Fame (seems I missed the announcement about them dropping "Museum" out of their title) and it sounds pretty cool.  If you are in the St. Louis area, or are planning a visit soon, worth checking out:

Ladies’ Knight: A Female Perspective on Chess

Opening Reception Thursday, October 29 | 6 - 8 p.m.

Ladies’ Knight: A Female Perspective on Chess examines how a game often dominated by men inspires contemporary women artists. The exhibition presents works by artists Crystal Fischetti, Debbie Han, Barbara Kruger, Liliya Lifanova, Goshka Macuga, Sophie Matisse, Yoko Ono, Daniela Raytchev, Jennifer Shahade, Yuko Suga, Diana Thater, and Rachel Whiteread. Their diverse interpretations of the game range from the playful and feminine to the serious and encourage dialogue about subjects like crime, language, peace and conflict, and inequality.
