The work is up, the opening- despite the torrential rain- was a great success and I owe many , many heartfelt thanks to all of the people that helped make it happen. I have oodles to write and show and will as soon as I can. Of course you can go to the Alley-Oop site and see some d-o-c-u-m-e-n-t-a-t-i-o-n.
Martin over at Anaba has been busy and is making Richmond an even cooler place than it already is. He has curated Art Basel: Stuffy's, and he's showing his paintings (Art of This Century) at the aluminum clad Markel building near Willow Lawn. I'm in the Stuffy's show and I have visited it- Kim and I were there this past Sunday and man, art never smelled so good. Stuffy's is a sub shop and I love the smell of vegetables in brine when I look at art! They were also having some sort of smoke-fire event so the atmosphere was hazy and put one in the mind of Venetian perspective. I have yet to visit the Markel builduing but plan to do so b/f the week is over.
Did anyone see Zoe Strauss' slideshow in Philly this past Saturday? I am sorry I had to miss it. If you don't know who she is, check her out- she's cool- I wish she and I were friends.
