Blee on Seven

There's a major review of Seven in the Georgetowner today written by their art critic John Blee.

I'll have a link up as soon as Georgetowner puts it online.

Update: The review is online; it's page 30 here.

The Power of the Web

So there's a heavy metal punk rock band from Illinois called Beneath the Hollow, who apparently read DC Art News and found Bailey's photography as a result.

And now those righteous young boys have approached Bailey and asked him about permission that would grant them a limited license to use one of his images from the "Cemetery Saviour" series for band promotional materials: T-shirts, etc.

And they've struck a deal! Bailey has more details and the whole story here.


There are a lot of openings this coming Friday... come back later for a list, and also a review of a couple of the shows currently on exhibit at the new Arlington Arts Center.
