Getting off the ground....


Finally writing the first entry to our new blog, Seminal Live, a sidebar to our website, seminalprojects.com. I hope this will become an exciting platform for spreading the word on all the great things--big and small--that are happening with the gallery, our artists, friends and collectors. Miyoshi Barosh's show, which closes this weekend, has been a big hit. I mean, everyone loves the work. It's definitely been one of my favorites. (People have compared her to Eva Hesse and Frank Stella, and I can see why--the work shows a lot of rigor and muscle, both physically and conceptually.) But I'm still waiting for the local museum people to come by--Stephanie Hanor, in particular. Miyoshi's "Love" would be a nice addition to the MCASD...

Othewise, Brian Dick dropped by earlier today. He's been missing the last couple months, busy fabricating his installation for the New Children's Museum that opens next Friday, May 2. No doubt his piece will be a showstopper...how did he describe it?...a recreation and melding of two of Allan Kaprow's seminal works. Hey, Brian, feel free to correct me and indulge us.

...that curious looking bench with the doily capped monster nipples-worts-sagging breasts-- that's Miyoshi Barosh's Our Lady of The Wellington (brilliant!)...somebody actually referred to it as an "upside-down pig" -- love it! But, definitely, my favorite comment came from a little girl who turned to her mom and said, "Mommy, I have an urge to sit on that!". ...and below is a slice of 'iron-lady' Heather Martin's show of paintings
(Transpositional) in Gallery Two...
