Bayonet to the heart

Like John McCain before the first debate, I’m going to suspend my campaign — sort of. Meaning that I’m going to quit being a critic — sort of. Because Matthew Scott’s show at Lark Gallery, At War, should be seen for its content and not necessarily for its artistic quality. Scott,

The show includes about a dozen standing figures on

My take on Maddock

You’ve probably already heard of Jeremiah Maddock. You may have seen some of his work already. You most likely read Daniel Blue’s article about his latest show at Mineral (Mineral is good for you, Weekly Volcano, Aug. 28). Now I offer my take on it. It’s pretty good. I might even

Apophenia

You could call this show the old pro and the hot new upstart. Gallery Madera calls it Apophenia, which according to the gallery Web site means "the spontaneous perception of connections and meaningfulness in unrelated phenomena." According to Wikipedia, it means "the experience of seeing patterns or connections in random

Glass half full

I thought half of the installations now gracing the Woolworth Windows were fascinating — meaning Denise Bookwalter’s Dimensional Airship Print and Shannon Benine’s Peaceful Endurance. The other two installations, Jordan Starr-Bochicchio and Victor Bochicchio’s Curb Appeal and Megan Berner’s Wallow Installation, left me cold and uncaring. Benine’s work is beautiful and

Promote your art

People often ask me how I decide what art exhibits to review. It’s an interesting question, but I probably don’t have an equally interesting answer. It’s often a seat-of-my-pants/spur-of-the-moment decision. For starters, I try to review shows that I think I will like and shows that I think the readers

Odysseus's Garden

The front rooms of Fulcrum Gallery are filled with glass works by Bryan Rubino that are displayed in such a way as to be seen as two unified installations even though it is actually an exhibition of slightly more than a dozen individual works of art. The placement of the

Travel show

For a good selection of artworks that teeter between “real” art and home décor — i.e., that caters to a mass market without being too banal — go to Childhood’s End Gallery in Olympia. The latest show centers on a travel theme with paintings by Sandy Hurd, serigraphs by Sherry
