Urban Noize, Portland, Oregon, 1980



In 1980 Portland had a fanzine called Urban Noize. I was the art director.
Here you see the original collage and then how it was translated into the cover.


I would like to remind any readers that most of my postings are now on my Tumblr.

This is the year of the Oregon Department of Kick Ass. Vanessa Renwick just opened a gorgeous show at the Art Gym and that's just a small element of all that's happening. She will be with me on Tuesday's Art Focus.

Richard Speer Review/ Yes, I covered Scars


Richard Speer says too many smart things for me to paraphrase; instead I provide the link and hope you read it all. But I do want to add to the comment about covering scars:

I have covered all kinds of scars. The most intense makeup/client I ever had was when a man brought his wife in for a makeup lesson... she had a huge sweeping port-wine stain on her face. He had never seen her without a ton of makeup. It's not like he was pro-makeup. He left us alone. She was crying as we took it off .... I kept saying "You know, we don't have to do this..." "No," she said," Let's keep at it." And then I showed her products and techniques she was unaware of. It was a healing and empowerment. She in fact became a repeat client, someone who had fun with her face instead of wiping it out.

Lisa Kaser and Grace Weston on KBOO


I am excited to interview on Art Focus this week (the 8th) 2 artists currently showing together at Waterstone Gallery: Lisa Kaser and Grace Weston. The show is called Unfamiliar Faces, work based on unsettling experience. The works by Weston are part of her new series Neo Noir - you can get a book about them here.

Augen Gallery, 2014


Thanks to old college classmate and pal Richard Greenstone for taking this picture and for traveling all the way from San Francisco to see my exhibition of Anonymous Women. I hadn't seen him since 1977! What a great night.
