Another great week on the blog. Missed something? Now’s your chance to catch up!

Brian Fee, our Austin Contributor, had an active week. It would seem like he’s our NYC contributor, because while in New York he visited two fantastic shows. First, on Monday, Brian visited Chris Martin’s exhibition at Mitchell-Innes & Nash. Check out that post here. And just yesterday he shared with us his Zak Prekop’s show at Harris Lieberman Gallery. We’re hoping Brian shares more with us during his lengthy NYC trip!

Nadiah Fellah also shared an interesting exhibit with us. Kathan Brown first invited John Cage to Crown Point Press in the 1970s, when her studio was located in Oakland (in 1989 she moved to its current location in San Francisco). Cage, not usually thought of as a visual artist, and therefore initially hesitant, finally accepted her invitation. Over the next 15 years he took the opportunity to experiment liberally with etching and printing….Cage spent 1 to 2 weeks a year at Crown Point Press where he produced 27 groups of prints, resulting in over 600 individual works. While many of them are dispersed all over the world in public and private collections—from the National Gallery in D.C. to the Hyogo Museum of Modern Art in Kobe, Japan—a number of artist proofs have remained at Crown Point Press in San Francisco, where they are now on view. Check out Nadiah’s full post here.

Finally, Matthew Smith, our D.C. contributor, checked out Ian Whitmore’s exhibition, a devil, a shadow, the notice of a small falling leaf” at G Fine Art.  The exhibition is made up entirely of paintings Whitmore composed after his move to NYC, perhaps hinting at what’s occupied his mind since leaving D.C. behind. Smith’s full post is here.

Finally, if you are located in the Midwest (IL, IN, IO, MI, MN, MO, OH, WI), we have extended the deadline until March 7 (Midnight, EST). A late entry fee of $65 will apply. Submit Your Work Now!
