Yes, Nice photos.

So, what were people's thoughts on the Affair? Likes/dislikes? Any work inspire you?

Thoughts on the Saturday panel Q&A?

Two words: Wireless Mic

overall a better fair than last year but still too many self conscious drawings. At least there werent as many on lined notebook paper this time... people trying so hard to be naive.

I Loved:

Matt Sellars at Platform

Libby Black at Heather Marx

Melia Jensen's napkin scratch pads for architects at Liz Leach.

Storm Tharp at PDX was the best figurative drawing at the affiar (sold rather quickly too) really wonderful as hell with that afro... nobody (living) draws hair as well as Storm Tharp. His next solo show has me really wanting him to step up. His Oregon Biennial work was ehhh ok.

Nice Inka Essenhigh and Murakami at Quality Pictures

Oliver Boberg everwhere, all of it rather damn good.

Sarah Bostwick at Gregory Lind was a real gem... im going to visit her show before it comes down in SF. Lind gave Jacqueline Ehlis a signed and editioned die cut postcard from her first show... sweet of him. Ehlis and Bostwick have a lot of tangential things in common as two of the best materially-based spatial artists on the West Coast. Bostwick needs to have here own "amber room" style commission.

dNASAb at Romo gallery was also really interesting.
