Nancy Baker - will be interviewed by Eva Lake today at 3pm... that should be a good one. You can listen live - and call in - or you can listen to the archived mp3 later. I listened to the Charlie Finch one, in three twenty-minute segments.
Ha. I loved it when Nancy wrote in a recent comment thread on her blog "if I see one more MFA show in the galleries I'll puke"... because I said something similar on Winkleman's blog last month, regarding an MFA show Winkleman was hosting, and wondered what Ed's represented artists thought about it. This began a strange fight with Ed... go read the thread. I'm still weirded out that he evidently spent six months assuming I was someone whose thinking is so different from my own. Makes you wonder...
Oh, I should explain that Nancy is represented by Ed... that's why I'm glad she said that puke thing. Better late than never.
UPDATE 6/17/07: oops, Nancy is no longer represented by Ed. How does that happen? I mean, these galleries are so "choosy" about taking on an artist.. then she has one show and that's it? Is it a sales thing? Creative differences?
Anthony Fineran - WOW! He sent me the painting that is at the top of this post! It's real small, like the size of a book. I will be thinking of what to send in return.
Sarah Peters - Sarah has a solo show opening at Winkleman's on Friday! Okay! That's one I can get behind!
Here is my Sarah story... it actually turned out to have way more coincidences, mainly, that Mountain Man had stayed at my apartment in Richmond. The Carson/Sarah coincidence was strange enough, but the added MM thing really blew my mind.
I miss the early MM days...
RELATED: if you are into Eva's interview program, you would also probably like listening to ArtCritical's review panels. There is a lot of stuff archived, just scroll down and listen.
UPDATE 6/14/07: a visit to Madarat Gallery... this is the Iraqi gallery featured in last week's NYTimes.
