Jennifer McMackon, who runs the lovely and thought provoking simpleposie site has been generous enough to let me put in a special guest appearance today by means of a Pop Quiz for Painters. Thank you Jennifer!

And I’m hitting the road today, venturing south to witness Portland’s First Thursday gallery crawl with my own eyes and to attend the opening of Chroma at Gallery 500. The show, being put on by Telegraph Arts includes a showcase of 6 simultaneous film, live dance, and live music performances. There is also a visual art component including artists: Michael Knutson, Jacqueline Ehlis (whose work I have been dying to see for a long time), Albi Spring, Tom Cramer, Tara Jane O’Neil, Molly Vidor, Tarina Westlund, Gretchen Gamble, Christine Morlock Vogt, Julie Clainos and I am thrilled to tell you I have a piece included too.

More importantly I will be finally meeting some of the fine Portland folks like Eva Lake who has been sending up an nice long olive branch from PDX, as well as organizer and man about townJeff Jahn.

To prep myself I am catching up with the latest issues of PAN and Critical i . More about my thermos of coffee and $1.99 road trip soon.


ahem, administrative matters

I notice in the past few days both NEWSgrist and Rachael had Canadian links, perhaps we all secretly wish we lived up there.

And many thanks to the nice comments everyone left yesterday. By the way, my web system is misbehaving badly here. Not only are my comments giving visitors weird error messages when they post, I have heard my RSS feed is out of commission. Hope to get my web monkeywrench out soon to fix things, in the duration thanks to all who endure the mess.

Speaking of problems, is it just me or is the Tacoma Art Museum site non-functional?
