So, today Ed Winkleman ("Bless his heart", as they say here in The South... but I MEAN it) has blogged about sleezebag dealers
. Yours truly has been talking about starting an annonymous art blog entitled "Empowering Artists" for many months now, but her compulsive making consistantly wins out over her altruism, and now someone else has beaten her to the punch. Unfortunately, if you follow Edward's link to the original source, it is not a thread one can easily comment on or add one's stories to, but Edward's blog today will be worth a read. I also found the BadGalleries.org
site through Ed's posting... their Mission Statement
is a must-read.
I am humming away in the studio with a "Do Not Disturb " sign on the door, have been looking forward to this day for a week. Hoping to set up my MySpace page during the evenings this week, as well as a page at The Drawing Center
, because I just got invited to participate in their viewing program. (yippeee!... artists, send them your stuff) There are lots of great drawings to be discovered on their website, organized by media or "type" (subject matter).
