I don't normally fit izzy's into my normal gallery rotations but I made the trip out tonight because I knew wayne grad kevin ewing was in the show. I enjoy his furry creations and his sweet but deceiving drawings. His personalty and sensibility shows with the subtle, menacing humor of the sensuous works.`Ewing will be in a group show at meadow brook coming up in the fall...and I always can't wait to see what he is up to! He is one detroit artist that if you are not familiar with...then be sure to check him out. (Oh, and I know I haven't posted for the hilberry show but I plan to do that tomorrow. I have been much more busy making work so sometimes the blog gets put on hold.)

Your photographs seldom make me want to investigate the work of the artists featured on the blog but the ones representing Ewing's drawings and constructions are particularly bad. If there's anything happening in his work it sure doesn't come across in the photos. You should have some respect for the artists and leave the camera at home. I wonder how you'd feel if somebody took a shitty picture of one of your paintings and posted it on the internet as representative of your work. Then again, maybe you wouldn't know the difference.

who the fuck are you?

do you know the lighting conditions? do you know that those drawings were thrown up on a not even half-lit wall behind the band's equipment?

no, you don't, because you weren't there and all you do is sit home and complain about people who are actually out helping the community and doing things.

this blog, I believe, is not about art photography, but about community and helping strengthen and grow that community - not about taking artists' portfolio shots for them. the pictures represent an experience and encourage others to GET OUT AND HAVE THE EXPERIENCE THEMSELVES.

you however, are exactly what we don't need. ann;s blog is the best and most important thing in the detroit art scene as a whole.

get lost jerk.

OK, anon.
I will just leave my camera at home. I guess no more pics for everyone to see. You won't even be talking about kevin ewing...or anyone? Do you go to shows or just look at pics and say..."nah".
Really...why even look at the blog if you don't like the pics? I guess I am just missing something.

How about you go to every show, bring a tripod, set up lights, take the shoots and then transfer them to resized images, upload to the blog and comment for me? eh?

Glad to see some images from Izzy's.
My love for the Detroit Art Community is tied to what was a great variation and anonymity. But now that it is being exposed by the blog which is said to be QUOTE " The most important thing in the Detroit Art Community as a whole " I would like to see that variation.. Zeitgeist across the street and so on.

that was a shamefull post by anonymous. ann (if you read this) your blog is so important, and creates a way for those of us who've moved away to see what's going on in Detroit in the small galleries, the more important stuff, that's not covered by the papers, etc. Keep up the good work (and you don't need to sink to this anonymous person's level with angry sarcasm: a lot of people with broader scopes than this individual have taken notice of what you are doing, and you know what you're doing is important, so my advice is to let their ignorance stand for itself). Keep up the good work.

It is true catholics have many issues with "shame". They have taken a long time getting out of the passive mode. You can petition the lord with prayer, you can ask the priest to explain further. You can pray that the church will rise with contemporary potentcy that spreads good energy to ALL whom need it!

It has been often said that I would make a good catholic, but alas I was raised to be more likely found dancing naked in a pagan ritual. Thems the breaks. But I don't think any school of thought would encourage spiteful attacks on someone who has been charitable and generous.

..And has recieved attention and show invitations as well as critique. I did not write the former anon 1 statement and do not agree with it anyway either. Keep dancing by the fire!
