Chadwick and Spector at Jerry's Artarama

Okay... I just got an email from Jerry's Artarama that they are having Chadwick and Spector talking about their art this Saturday, October 1st from 12-2pm. This should be great and I am sure that a lot of people are going to be there. Unfortunately, I won't be able to be... but go and tell me all about it!

George Brainard Photography

Howdy! Last year, we had the honor to have George Brainard come and speak to the Art Guild about his Race Fans pictures taken in the dragway... He was a great speaker and had so many great stories to tell. While working on this year's banner project, I found this little video. So, if you did not make it to that meeting, this is a great way to recap... or see actual film footage of George hard at work.

David Ball - Banner Project Participant

Postcards from the Unconscious- David Ball from Colin M Day on Vimeo.

One of the things that I love about curating the Banner Project is all the art that I get to admire... all the things that I get to learn. It's an opportunity to make new connections and re-kindle some old ones. There's so much great art out there and not enough time to appreciate it. I met David Ball over 20 years ago back in my Boston Days. Our paths crossed again recently and when I saw his work, I had to invite him to participate in the banner project. In this video, he talks about "Postcards from the Unconscious", his latest body of work.

On Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th, Stinger Studio is sponsoring a  SALE for those of us who have too much art accumulating.    I'm bringing about 25 pieces so come one and come all if you would like a Sue Nosler Gray at 50 to 80% off.    I guess we should call if  "Help us make more space"  sale.   That would work!  Thanks Sonia!

Painting as sculpture

I thought that this was quite interesting... Margie Livingstone thinks out of the box, or shall we say out of the tube. I thought that it's very creative!
