Sad news in the quilt show world -- the large corporate "Mancuso" art quilt syndicate has a problem. Over a hundred quilts that were en route to a display simply disappeared. Poof. Gone. Artists have been asked to watch Ebay and Etsy to see if their work shows up. Those poor artists! Hours upon hours creating the artwork, paying to have it entered in a show, expecting to get it back, then...gone. Insurance will give them some money back, but certainly not enough. I wonder where they went? How can a package like that be just lost in today's age of digitized tracking? Artist Sally Gould-White made a good post about the incident, here.
And to round out today's post, here is an article from Hyperallergic reviewing the artwork of Martin Barre. It is very, very abstract -- to the point where I am not sure I can respond to it as art at all. The written review didn't help me see more into the art's meaning, either. Food for thought! Headshake and facepalm on this one, folks.
What will you make today?
