Re: “Horizons Unknown

I look forward to the rest of your exhibit, Marceau. The explanation here was beautiful. I treasure knowing you.

Re: “Live Wire

I love her work, the unique medium and attention to detail... The giraffe in her studio is amazing. Making a mental note to ensure Sewell is on our journey around old town this Saturday evening. Also, is available.

Re: “Have Can, Will Travel

Thanks for the feedback!

Bedazzled, the art is in the Airport itself, although you could say it is inspired by the graffiti you might find on the overpass. Like SteamDonkey mentioned, I'd suggest stopping by and checking out the Airport show! You may look differently at the graffiti you see on your way home.

Re: “Have Can, Will Travel

So this is why there's newly installed "Art" on the Airport Road 101 underpass?

Re: “Have Can, Will Travel

Cool story Ken! I could imagine a traveler from a large city who's never been to ACV get off the plane expecting landscapes with cow and tractors, only to be surprised by this vibrant juxtaposition and contrast. I might have to stop off at the airport for a quick visit next time I'm on my way north.

Re: “Cultural Transformation

The only downside? Such a lush and expansive exhibit should last longer. Word of mouth is one of the primary ways that events like River As Home is communicated. While many folks have seen the exhibit already there are many people who are only just now hearing about the exhibit. Now there's just a few short weeks left. In the end there were 92 artists included in the show. There are many more. The Fixing the Earth: NOW! exhibit is concurrent at the Goudi'ni Native gallery on the HSU campus and an upcoming Native exhibit at the Ink People's new Brenda Tuxford gallery. Yay!

Re: “Zen and Fine Art Photography

I find it interesting that Bill Pierson's own work would not qualify for entry to the Northwest Eye, which has archaic late 20th century restrictions as to size and matting. I don't know if any serious photographers today are working in 11x14 prints on 16x20 white mats. I'm certainly not.

Re: “From Big Foot to the Bible

I have never seen anything so ugly, disturbing and meaningless. Your art sucks.

Re: “Salmon Celebration

Bob and the NCJ, It was fun to read through Bob's article about the work that has had my attention for the past year or so, thank you. There are a couple of errors that I made during the interview that need correction. The Humboldt Area Foundation grant was from the Ivy Erene Hughes & Carl G. Lundgren Fund.
I was corrected by my fisheries biologist friend, that the 2-year-old jacks do not return to the ocean but their numbers do offer the prospects for the coming year's run. MG
