Books make you smart!
I don't know if anyone out there is in to reading but it can be fun! I read the de Kooning bio a few months ago and really liked it! I just bought this book (New Art City ) and so far it is starting off as an enjoyable read. It pretty much covers all art in NY city at mid century...so 1940's -1960's. Pick it up and maybe we can start an Oprah's book club, where I will be Oprah and you all can come to my mansion and we can talk about the book!

New American Paintings
If you are familiar with the monthly art catalog New American Paintings...they have a new feature on the online site. Now you can visit "artists' links" that directs you to images of contemporary artists from the catalog and a website to find their work. It is a great thing to check out when you want to see what kind of art competition is out there...or if you are just bored at work!

Scott Hocking at MCB
For anyone who missed art night at the Motor City Brewing, here are some pics of Mr. Hocking's latest work. Again another great show...lots of fun! I even got a free leftover bumpy cake out of the evening!
Humm...these are some good prices! Good thing I got a darling Hocking piece of my own. Ok, Scott start making millions!

Posner Gallery back in business
"When Rebus was first installed oin Robert Rauschenberg's first show at Leo Castelli's gallery, it inspired furious opposition. While Rauschenberg's first show succeeded a sold-out Jasper Johns exhibit, only two Rauschenbergs sold. (One of them was Bed, which Castelli bought and eventually gave to MoMA.)
Rebus provoked the most outrage. A visitor wrote "Fuck You" on it in crayon. Rauschenberg collaged over it. So far as I know, that's still a part of the piece on view at MoMA. (Anecdote taken from Off the Wall, by Calvin Tomkins." Modern Art Notes

Another 4731 opening? Yes, they seem to organize an opening every weekend. The artist crowd is always good but I think collectors still don't know what to expect so they don't make the trip. This show was organized by Michelle Perron of Center Galleries at CCS. I was happily suprised to see that Gilda Snowden had a piece up!
I enjoyed these rubber creations!
I also really like this piece, but I forgot who made it? If you are out there...great work!

Sixx the Gallery opening
I love good suprises! Sixx turned out to be a wonderful opening packed with people eager to look at and talk about art - go figure? Sixx the Gallery is a new space in Harmonie Park: a little hard to find but well worth the trip downtown. It is a gallery to watch for and a beautiful space to have an art showing. Next time be sure to check it out and quick being a skeptic like me!
The gallery is on the top floor and there are gorgeous views of the city.
