The Lesbian Art Show at Fontanelle, which features Dada-inspired collages, painting and installation by Azsa West and Mary McAllister is the focus of this Radiozine show. The exhibition pays smart homage to herstory of the 20th century with a very contemporary feel. There's even a booth where you can enclose yourself with the Well of Loneliness and a shot of whiskey. This interview is with Mary McAllister and the gallerist Leslie Miller. We also play music by local lesbian bands throughout the hour.
Michael Brophy talks about his new show "Silence" at the Laura Russo Gallery. The show has big canvases of landscapes in Eastern Oregon and small goauches made right after his studio and home went through a big fire.
Eunice Parsons is a master collage artist. She has several shows this year including a small retrospective at the Hallie Ford Museum in Salem. Her manager and the director of 12 x 16 Gallery Cary Doucette was also with us at KBOO.
