Jane奶奶和Tim爺爺要回來了!!〉〉 Curator Jane and Tim Coming Back to Cheng Long for 2018 Art Project

Hello Cheng Long!  Jane Ingram Allen, our curator, and Timothy Allen, her photographer husband,  are very excited to be coming back to Cheng Long village for the 2018 art project.  Jane is happy that this year she can meet the artists in person and be in Cheng Long village during the art project and symposium from April 11 to May 14, 2018.   It will be really great to see all the changes in the village and to see how the children have grown up.  Jane has been there during the art project every year since it started in 2010 except for 2017, and she perhaps more than others can recognize how much Cheng Long has changed.  We will be talking about that more during the symposium May 11-13. Tim will again be taking photographs for the art project.  We will enjoy getting to meet many old friends and see all the children again to talk some more English and maybe improve our Chinese!   In this recent photo of us, you can see how we’ve changed, more white hair for Jane and less hair for Tim!
哈囉!成龍!我們的國際策展人Jane,和她的攝影師先生Tim,將要在《2018成龍溼地國際環境藝術節》時再次回到成龍村了!Jane很開心今年會親自見到藝術家,她將於4/11~5/14〈藝術家駐村〉及〈環境藝術論壇〉期間進駐在成龍村裡。能夠看到村子的改變,以及孩子們的成長,真是太棒了!從2010年至今,Jane除了2017年沒有前來成龍村外,她每來在藝術節期間都會住在村子裡,她或許是最能理解成龍村改變多少的人,而我們將在5/11-13的〈環境藝術論壇〉裡多聊聊這件事!而Tim則將在藝術節期間如以往一樣協助攝影,期待到時候能再見到許多老朋友,和孩子們聊上幾句英文,或是讓我們練上幾句中文。在這張我們近期的合照裡,你可以看見我們的改變:Jane有了更多的白髮,Tim的頭髮變得更少了!

2017 was the first year that Jane and Tim did not come to Taiwan since she first went there in 2004 with the Fulbright grant.  Jane and Tim stayed living and working in Taiwan until August 2012 when we moved back to the USA and settled in Santa Rosa, California, to be with our two grand-daughters Emily, now 10 years old, and Sarah, now 8 years old.
Jane除卻2017年沒有在台灣外,她從2004年以傅爾布萊特獎助金來台研究創作後,就和Tim在台灣生活及工作直到2012年8月才搬回美國加州聖塔羅莎(Santa Rosa),與二個孫女–10歲的Emily和8歲的Sarah同住。

Here’s a family photo taken at Christmas 2017.
這裡是一張2017年聖誕節拍攝的家族照。

family photo christmas 2017See if you can find Jane and Tim and our grand-daughters Emily and Sarah and daughter Jennifer.  Our son Chris and his wife Rebecca (on the far left back row), are still living in Boston and we see them at least once or twice a year.  They are expecting their first child in March!
找找看,你可以認出Jane和Tim,以及她的孫女Emily、Sarah,和女兒Jennifer嗎?在這張照片中還可以看到Jane的兒子Chris以及太太Rebecca(後排最左側),他們住在美國東岸的波斯頓(Boston),Jane和Tim每年會和他們至少見面一、兩次,今年三月他們將要迎接第一個寶寶的誕生!

Jane and Tim are both enjoying semi-retirement now, although Jane still does lots of art projects and Tim teaches one class in American history online.  Jane’s art activities include going to Turkey in 2015 with a Fulbright Specialist grant to be an artist in residence at the paper museum of Ege University in Izmir, Turkey.  Jane has also been doing many art projects in the USA.  Here is a photo of a project she did in 2017 at Newnan, GA, to make a “Living Quilt” and the paper pulp has seeds for wildflowers to grow and bloom over time.
雖然Jane仍然參與許多的藝術計畫,Tim也還在線上教授一堂美國史的課程,但他們都很享受目前半退休的生活。Jane這幾年參與的活動包括:2015年,以傅爾布萊特專家獎助金前往土耳其伊茲密省(Izmir)的愛琴海大學(Ege University),在紙類博物館裡擔任駐館藝術家。Jane亦在美國參與許多藝術計畫,下面這張照片就是她在2017年於美國喬志亞洲的紐南市(Newnan)完成的作品「花草拼被」(Living Quilt),在這件作品所使用的紙漿裡含有花草的種籽,將會隨著時間成長綻放。

In 2017 Jane also created a handmade paper artwork map of Taiwan and the USA for the 40th anniversary of the Fulbright Foundation in Taiwan.  Here is a photo of that artwork that is now hanging at the Foundation for Scholarly Exchange in Taipei.
2017年Jane也曾為台灣傅爾布萊特學術交流基金會40週年慶製作了一幅手工紙地圖,下面這張照片是這件作品懸掛在基金會的樣子。

In November 2017 Jane rented her own studio space in Santa Rosa, and she is now teaching papermaking workshops there. You can see more about Jane’s recent art projects on her Blog at http://janeingramallen.wordpress.com .  Tim has retired from teaching and now devotes most of his time to photography, selling his photos and exhibiting them.  You can see more of his photos on his blog at https://allentimphotos2.wordpress.com
2017年11月開始,Jane在聖塔羅莎租了一間自己的工作室,她現在在工作室教授手工紙課程。你可以在Jane的部落格看到他的最新作品:http://janeingramallen.wordpress.com。Tim現在也不再教學了,專心致力於攝影,販售作品及辦展覽。你可以在Tim的部落格看到他的攝影集:https://allentimphotos2.wordpress.com

Tim thinks it might be fun to teach a photography workshop for the Cheng Long children while we are there.  Jane will be supervising the international artists for 2018 and working with Chao-mei this year as co-curator.  We also hope to share some food and games from the USA with the children.   We look forward to seeing everyone soon!
Tim有在想,或許可以在回到成龍村時,為孩子們辦一場攝影工作坊。Jane則會和共同策展人QQ湄一起管理整個藝術計畫,另外也會準備一些美國的食物和遊戲與孩子們分享。真希望趕快和大家見面呀!

Best wishes,

Jane and Tim
