In a show surely to stir controversy, GMU professor Chawky Frenn opens tonite at our Bethesda gallery with a show titled "US and Them." Read an excellent profile of Frenn by Dave Jamieson in the current issue of the Washington City Paper here.

The opening reception is from 6-9 PM as part of the Bethesda Art Walk. See you there!

Those of you who know me, also know how much I dislike stereo-typing anything. And this being the first ever visit for me to Omaha (or Nebraska for that matter), guess what is the first thing that greet new arrivals to Omaha's Eppley Field Airport?

Thinking About Art has some pretty potent words both in praise of the Trawick Prize: The Bethesda Contemporary Art Awards, and also in criticism of the poor curatorial job done by the three jurors.

As soon as I get back from Cornhuskerland I will go see the show and offer my own comments on the subject, but judging from the photos posted by J.T. about the selected works, I am already finding myself somewhat agreeing with Kirkland.
