more of ccs...



Besides the faculty show in the main center gallery, down the alumni hallway was an exhibit of ccs staff and administration. It is funny that to me the hallway showed a stronger show than the main gallery...which poses an interesting question about being an artist and becoming a full time teacher: does being a teacher drain you of your talent? I know this isn't a problem with all teachers and it seemed like the some of the artistically stronger teachers were not in the main show like gilda snowden, nancy mitter...isn't clint snider on board at ccs too - where was his work? The work in the hallway was also a cross section of a generally younger staff and a staff very much still involved in the current art community.

The show is alphabetical. This is the first half. The second will include Nancy and Gilda and the like.

Maria's piece seems like a blatant rip-off of a Mike Smith photo (I don't know if it's worse that he's a student at CCS or not).

Anyone know who done the b+w landscape between Oscar Meyer Wiener and the bronze packing nuts?

It's not an indictment, just an observation.

Though...I am a total jack ass.
