No artomatic…but take heart

Despite the lack of information on their official website, Artomatic ain’t happening this year. Some people hate it, but I loved it, and hope it does take place next year.

I agree wholeheartedly with J.T. Kirkland on Wegman at Adamson. I don’t like dogs anyway, and a blue fruit bowl on the head doesn’t change my feelings. I did crap like this in high school, only I put silly things on my brother’s head. That said, the Wegman exhibit Funney/Strange at the American Art Museum has some bright spots, and is worth going to - particularly his older photographs without any dogs.

The next photography show ia already up at the National Gallery of Art - The Streets of New York: American Photographs from the Collection 1938-1958. This ought to be good. I grew up in the midwest, and even though I married a New Yorker, it is still a magical place, and even better in B&W.
