Saturday events

Rest up tonight because tomorrow is a big opening night. I advise you start in birmingham at Klein and KIDD and then stop by Ghost Gallery....and lastly off to berkley to Synergy. One show I am sure not to miss is Milton Resnick at Klein - as you all know I have a thing for the abstract expressionists!

I heard that painting was somewhat of an ann gordon/chad hunt collaboration. I thought it looked somewhat ann influenced..

should be very interesting to see the two artists works together......both of them are very expressionistic, in their own ways

I went to the Synergy gallery opening, it was really really good!

There was this one small painting of Chad's that I just fell in love with---a white-surfaced picture of a wrapped figure, the marks were incised into the surface. Just beautiful!

Bielat's work was powerful too, with the juxtapositionings of stone, metal, chains, etc that made your eye jump from one texture to the next. Fortunately for me, I own two of his sculptures already!

This isn't necessarily reflective of these shows, especially an old master like Resnick. But there is so much bad work around, everywhere, so much that is derivative, half-baked or banal, you can't believe that galleries would show it. I think there is a glut whereby there are now more galleries looking for young artists than worthwhile artists to fill them.

there IS so much bad work around....bad music, poetry, visual art, theater, etc

always has been

the job is to weed through all of it until one finds the good!

what is banal for one is masterpiece for another

the galleries may sell more of the banal than the vibrant, because that is what their particular market wants

i am not necesarily disagreeing with you, just attempting to understnd / explain. I was in NY 2 months ago---if you want to see an abundanc of bad art, go there!

Ann-

Are you excepting new submissions for the Detroit Artworks? I'm noticing several repeat artists that are submitting newer works. Just curious as to how that works.

As a side note to John's post; I've never submitted any work ever. It's all Ann's doing and I thank her for it!

lynn barber lives in and writes about the london art scene. she is currently one of the jurors for the turner prize, and in the statement here (which is relative to any art scene anywhere) is reacting to the job of trying to weed out the good.
