Half/Dozen on KBOO


Listen to the interview here.

This week Art Focus continues a small series of interviews with gallerists and directors, the people who make spaces happen. We need to celebrate the people who have hung in there. So far I’ve featured Onda Gallery, 12 x 16, Murdoch Art Services and Disjecta. On Tuesday I will have Timothy Mahan on. He directs Half/Dozen. Grant Hottle is currently showing (see fab painting) – and he will also join us.

Marilyn Murdoch on KBOO


Peter and Sally Murdoch joined us too. Listen to the interview here.

For awhile now I have focused on art spaces and the people who run them. This week Marilyn Murdoch will be my guest on the radio. Marilyn is a well known collector. She also has Katayama Framing, considered by many to be the best framing in town. The choice there will make your mouth water. She maintains Artery and Murdoch Collections, where she exhibits and sells work out of her private collection. Perhaps where she made the biggest impact with artists was Guestroom, where local curators stepped up and created different kinds of exhibitions. I was curated in twice, by Jenny Strayer with Paperchase and Jim Riswold with WAR.

Disjecta on KBOO


(Listen to the interview here.)

This week Disjecta hosts its annual auction – always a raucous event. AC Dickson is the highly animated auctioneer.
(Read about it here in the O.)
This year also promises big time stargazing with Dave Allen as the announcer. Art Focus at KBOO will feature the auction tomorrow.

There are over 50 artists featured in the event. I am one of them – my piece is below. I gave them a Target (Liz) which has never exhibited before.

12 x 16

Listen to the interview here.

Time Flies. I can't believe that 12 x 16 is celebrating their 5th anniversary. A collective, 12 x 16 has shown many guest artists. I did video interviews with Ann Shiogi, Kerry Davis and Jim Neidhardt during their exhibitions there. KBOO's Art Focus has also held interviews with Eunice Parsons and Cary Doucette. Those two plus artist Luke Dolkas will be my guests tomorrow on the radio.
