Gender issues

I receive updates from Alyson Stanfield at her Art Biz blog and today's topic is about all women art shows. She asks the question and many people offered thoughtful responses in her comments section.

Also go here where she asks about the role of gender in art success. Again many thoughtful responses about a rather hot topic for many people.

What are your views?

Georgia O'Keeffe: Abstraction show

Georgia O'Keeffe: Abstraction is at the Phillips Collection in Washington DC until May 9th and then travels to Santa Fe to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum from May 28th to September 12th. It looks like a great show and I wish I could see it. If you scroll down to the end of the museum piece about the show be sure to click on all three of the reviews. ArtInfo lists the show as a power exhibition. The New Yorker lists the show as one of the best museum shows of 2009.

Making lists

This is a photo of an installation at the Tate Britain in October 2009.Now on to making lists. I have a to do list on my desk top which I update about three times a week. I love making lists and always think about the friend who made a list starting with get up, shower and eat breakfast, just so she would have something to cross off her list each day. I'm not quite that bad.

Go to Robert Genn's newsletter and read his letter about making lists. But even better go to the remarks and read what his readers said. Scroll down to nearly the bottom and read more remarks. Always something thought provoking and interesting in this newsletter.
