Marsha Stein Art Project

Marsha Stein's art project is gathering attention from a lot of artists and some press and is being filmed for a potential "reality TV" series about art.

The next meeting for interested artists is at Fraser Gallery Bethesda tomorrow Monday, November 22 at 7pm.

Interested artists should contact Marsha Stein at

Today I will be at the Rockville Arts Place as part of the The Artist and the Internet: A Panel Discussion from 1 to 2:30PM.

The panel is comprised of Malik Lloyd, publisher of FindArt Info Bank, web designer and artist Todd Baxter Dawson and yours truly.

The discussion will focus on ways in which artists can use the Internet as a valuable resource for information, community and self promotion.

The Panel discussion will preceed the opening of the exhibit "Minimum/Maximum" that same afternoon. The exhibition features work by Trawick Prize finalist Jo Smail.

The panel is free to Rockville Arts Place members and $10 to everyone else.

Commercial Galleries and Artomatic

We have decided to host a dual gallery show next January for the combination of my Top Ten List and Catriona Fraser's Top 10 List.

So we've re-shuffled our 2005 schedule a little bit and invited the following artists, and those who accept will be included in a dual gallery show at Fraser Gallery Georgetown and Fraser Gallery Bethesda concurrently during January 2005.

BJ Anderson
Joseph Barbaccia
John Bata
Margaret Dowell
Matt Dunn
Chris Edmunds
Thomas Edwards
M. Rion Hoffman
Michal Hunter
Michael Janis
Mark Jenkins
Syl Mathis
Allison B. Miner
Mary Beth Ramsey
Alison Sigethy
Ira Tattleman
Denise Wolff
Tim Tate

Separately from this exhibition, I am working with a few other commercial galleries that have stepped forward and volunteered their spaces, including the Anne C. Fisher Gallery, the new galleryconnect and Gallery Neptune to try to work out concurrent exhibitions of the "final" Artomatic Top Ten List, which will be compiled mathematically from all the lists that I have been getting from curators, critics and art dealers.

These other galleries have expressed interest in hosting a gallery show for the Artomatic artists listed in various Top Ten Lists here and as a result of my observations to the effect of the interesting coalescing of names from the various lists.

Any other commercial galleries, non-profits or art venues interested in this future AOM follow-up event, email me.
