Installation view of a piece by Patrick W. Welch.
A set of forty-some images from the exhibition Art Legend: Miniature Paintings 1997 - 2007 by the late, great Patrick W. Welch is up on the Art or Idiocy? Flickr page. The images are also viewable as a slideshow. It is a fairly comprehensive tour through the show at this Hyde Park alternative space.
This weekend marked not only the celebration of MLK and the inauguration of a much-anticipated, well-loved and much-needed new President. Sunday was also the close of Prospect.1 in New Orleans, commemorated with what else, a Jazz Funeral. How appropriate, not only for the biennial, but for this time in the city and the nation as a whole. Images from P.1 are forthcoming. If you haven't had a chance to read my reviews on ArtSlant, the links are below.
