Whenever a gift might be coming my way – All I really want is ART! This weekend we headed down to Portlandia for a little get-away weekend and went to the Augen Gallery to check out the latest show – I got MONKEY SMILE instantly! I was so excited by the work of Hibiki Miyazaki! And then I got DOUBLE MONKEY SMILE when Jesse got me this as an early birthday present!!!

It goes really great with the Faye Jones piece he got me when I had Grace and it seems there is a real Mother-Daughter theme starting to take shape in my collection as well as in my own work … More on that later!!

I heard today that Nancy Spero died in October. I was struck by this as she was very influential as a student of printmaking. She and her husband (Leon Golub) both.




These are Leon Golubs.




Pierogi, anyone?

First of all, let me say that though money may be tight in the economy, there is still art to be purchased.  And drawings, prints and generally works on paper, are an excellent gateway drug to building an art collection worth showing. While in Williamsburg, we stumbled out of Junk ( a great thriftstore ) and into Pierogi (a gallery located just up the street).

Like any good donut, dumpling, bow, or bun – the best part is what is inside. And Pierogi has some ample filling. Flat file after flat file of works on paper by hundreds of artists. Anything from traditional print, to mixed media — genre after genre. The fine interns at Pierogi have painstakingly cataloged this work and tagged it for your pleasure. And the best part is that most of it is online, and alot of it can be had for a very reasonable amount of coin.

So the next time you are looking at a blank wall, and wondering if you shoud re-hang something less than worthy, take a peak at the surprise inside of Pierogi.
