I had a strange experience when I went out and about visiting studios on the East Austin Studio Tour. When I looked at the map, I was gratified to see quite a few artists in my immediate neighborhood, and one studio only a block away, so I decided to make that my first stop.
As I’m slowly riding my bike down the driveway to the garage studio in back, one of the two residents says “Are you Adam Rice?”. Taken aback, I confirm that I am, and ask “â€¦How do you know?” Despite their proximity, I’m sure I’ve never seen either of these people before, and it’s not like I’m famous.
She explains that she has seen me pop up as a “recommended friend” on Facebook because we apparently have a lot of friends in common.
Still, that doesn’t explain how she knows that Gwen has a letterpress, or that it came with our house.
