Why Art Reviews?!

Simply, it is free entertainment.  It is a good learning experience and for those who follow or care about/appreciate art – you are on the cutting edge.  And there’s a good chance you will meet the artist if your timing is right.

Last Saturday, my favorite show was Connections which features a number of artists, most notably Jacob Lawrence, Lorna Simpson, and Carrie Mae Weems.  Incredibly, Gordon Parks’ American Gothic is part of the show, an opportunity for you to breathe on some very famous glass.  In all seriousness, it is important to see significant works in person.  The experience of seeing these up close rather than on a page cannot be matched.  GO!
