Cashing In

It seems there are several places online to now buy contemporary art at reasonable prices and I do mean reasonable. My own prints are on sale through Humble Arts Foundation as are friend Amy Stein's. Another good friend Brian Ulrich, based in Chicago is selling prints through Jen Beckman Gallery based in New York. There is no excuse for tacky posters on your walls anymore. By the way only 10 prints are left. Get them while their hot people!

Wonder Object

My good friend and colleague Gary Schott was recently informed he will participate in "Next Iconoclassts", a curated exhibition by Gail Brown. The exhibition will be hosted by The Hoffman Gallery at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, Portland, OR, and is scheduled for Jan.15, 2009 through Feb.22, 2009. Gary is the head of the metalsmith and jewelry program here at Stephen F. Austin State University. Although I've had little exposure to the craft world I find his works amazing, especially his whimsical cut-out brooches. I've already commissioned one... a cherry pie! Gary's hand-cranked mechanical devices are something to marvel out. His martini shaker is pictured above. Several of his pieces have been selected for shows opening next Spring all over the country. Please check out his new blog "Wonder Object" for exact dates and locations.
