Brad Rogers on KBOO

Brad Rogers is an artist who has a gallery on NE Broadway called BRogers/Plan B. I think the "Plan B" part comes from changing part of it into more of a shop and less of an exhibition space, but we'll find out for sure tomorrow when I have him on Art Focus at KBOO. Right now he has a terrific show of Daguerreotypes, co-curated by Jennifer Stoots.

nincompatibles


Charlie Finch visited Cutters at Cinders Gallery and wrote this wonderful piece about the work in the show as well as its subject matter, Dimaggio. It’s a thrill to be on Artnet.

Speaking of which, Walter Robinson is showing right now with Richard Hell (!!!) and Brigitte Engler at Bowman/Bloom Gallery. The show is called Nincompatibles. Below is a studio view of Robinson’s recent paintings. I would love to see this show.

Modou Dieng on KBOO

Listen to the interview here.

Modou Dieng has a show at the Marylhurst Art Gym called Black Star - mixed media with records and record sleeves. He also curates Work/Sound. He'll be my guest tomorrow on Art Focus on KBOO.

trashed @ 35

Willamette Week is celebrating 35 years in business, presenting a Trashed @ 35 party at Backspace. Basically the magazine (via Klutch and Richard Speer) asked a group of artists to take old WW covers and re-spin them. I took this as an opportunity to use a bigger NRA target for a self-portrait, also using a cover from Art Forum (with Wonder Woman) and Art in America. The opening is tonight, First Thursday.
