Two major Northwest daily newspaper art critics have taken up blogging.
First there is Regina
Hackett at the Seattle PI
. Her style of reviews and often subjective viewpoint
oriented writing is perfectly suited to art blogging.
Then there is David
Row's recent turn as a blogger
. Yes, I like to refer to him as Death Row
(because it's cool) and I am a little disappointed it isn't called the "Death
Blog." Once again an unbeatable name... let's compare, my personal blog
would have to be called the "Yawn Blog" after the correct pronunciation
of my last name, so dull.
Oh well, the "DKlog" should allow him to continue pressuring the
museum for a free day (note they need a lot more guard on free days). My solution,
simply make one Thursday night a month free instead of a whole day, easier sell
and easier to get sponsors eased into the idea.
The interesting development is both David
and Regina have plastered their photo's on the web and allow for comments....
I'm blond, I can't disappear (even in a large crowd) but it is sometimes nice
to be unrecognized as a critic. I wonder if David and Regina will feel a pang
at giving their respective art scenes a target?
All that said, welcome aboard... it's definitely different out on the blogosphere
and it often comes down to one's wits. I think arts writing and blogging are probably perfectly suited for one another.
It is beyond ironic, Jeff, that your last name is pronounced Yawn. It makes me laugh whenever I think of it. And yeah are very correct, you can't disappear in a crowd. :)
