I will most certainly be there. But I will not be participating in the pretentious art writing contest as there is not a pretentious bone in my body...I promise.

I'll see you there and it's ok about the contest... you know they are very funny to read but a bit punishing as well. The last one I got had footnotes... egad (but that's the reaction it should provoke).

Yuck footnotes. That person already wins in my book. Look forward to see you there Jeff. You and I met once before at the wonderful Gregg Renfrow show, but I was probably too busy kissing his ass to be remembered by someone else. I don't know why, but I absolutely loved that show.

yes yes I remember you and yes you absolutely WERE kissing Greg's ass!
It was a great show though. I think Ill do a post on great shows that didn't get the attention they deserved.
Also, yes Haiku are fine as contest entries but it might be more blazingly pretentious to merge the Haiku and Sonnet forms.

Well, then add Arvie Smith's current show at Beppu Wiarda to the list. Beautiful paintings, yet they feel too restricted and are overlooked in the small and (I swear) virtually unknown Beppu Wiarda. Some of the best figurative paintings I have seen in quite some time.

I liked Jim Hibbard's Grisaille work a few months back at BW gallery. Its true though, hot young artists tend to get more media attention these days, especailly since there are so many of them here. BTW you can be 44 and still be considered a whippersnapper upstart in the art world.
