Andrea Schwartz-Feit on "Seeing Without Knowing"

program: 
Art Focus
program date: 
Thu, 06/03/2010

Andrea Schwartz-Feit had a show at Butters Gallery in May called “Seeing Without Knowing.” She uses encaustic to make images which are geometric and organic at the same time. They also jump back forth between abstraction and representation. Sometimes she has a dash of Klimt, especially when we see a shimmer (which I imagine to be gold leaf). I’ve never seen a jpg which really captured the luminosity of her paintings.

Plein Air Smackdown at Open Engagement

program: 
Art Focus
program date: 
Tue, 05/11/2010

From May 14th through the 17th Portland will host Open Engagement: Making Things, Making Things Better, Making Things Worse. This conference says it will challenge our traditional ideas of what art is and does. It will present artists, projects and events which will mediate the contemporary frameworks of art as service, as social space, as activism, as interactions, and as relationships.

One of the events is Plein Air Smackdown (see poster above), the brainstorm of Mark R. Smith who teaches at PCC. Painting students from PCC, PSU and OCAC will have a painting competition of sorts. Susan Harlan, Michelle Ross and Vicki Lynn Wilson will be my guests on Art Focus to talk about that event and the conference as a whole. I get to referee the Smackdown with Jeff Jahn and am really looking forward to it.

Gabriel Liston has moved his studio into the New American Art Union, producing an exhibition called Take That and Stand By for Trouble. We can watch the progress on a work and also check out his diaries from at least several years. These journals appear to be old children's books. He has ripped out the innards, replacing them with his art life. Art life, meaning not just nice drawings and ideas but all the money and struggle bits.
