SCOD Maryland, Frederick City Public Library Exhibit 

2020 Proposal-Statement

[currently in planning phase]


This SCOD (Sustainable Cooperative for Organic Development) group show promotes collaboration more than competition. Being able to exhibit our artistic expressions in public for free is how we win together by sharing. Awards at galleries do not need to be prize ribbons, we can be rewarded with attention and sales. If you like someone’s work, please make a note to find out more about them and contact them if you want to support them by owning and sharing some of their art.

Our goal with this project is to include as many partners as possible, and represent many styles and genres. SCOD art theory strives to remind us that modern art (impressionist to abstract) is not about elitist talent, because it was born from common desperation. The suffering of mental, physical, and economic disabilities caused some to declare “Dada! Art is for all!”. Even today we are realizing that indeed other animals create art to attract attention. As many fish and birds learn, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Posted in Cooperatives / Communities / Networks / Travels, Roleplaying / Reenacting with tags , , , , , , , on August 4, 2012 by Drogo

Pananimus is a group founded by Beamer and Drogo in 2012, based on existing local social gaming relationships. Pananimus means “all creative energies” and is open to all; video gamers, word gamers, board gamers, card gamers, strategists, roleplayers, etc… so please join us online regardless of how often you game, or want to game; no matter if you are local or from another dimension that just visits. Pananimus includes all forms of fiction and fantasy. Also inherent in our name is an interest in other forms of life and media; supernatural, paranormal, film, books, theater, radio, and yes even the mundane (sometimes). Facebook link:
