Art Blogs Come to Montreal

ARTIVISTIC 05 is dedicating a significant portion of their conference schedule to Art Blogs and I've been invited to participate, but don't know yet if I will be able to come, due to some health complications of one of my daughters.

But it sounds interesting! Check it out here.

Bailey has an Op Ed in the Reston Times and Reston Observer newspapers.

Mirrors Espejos

The Cultural Institute of Mexico has what sounds like a great exhibition opening on Wednesday.

Titled "Mirrors: Contemporary Mexican Artists in the United States," the opening will take place on September 14th, 7:00 pm at the Institute.

The exhibition presents works of 36 Mexican artists currently living in different cities of the United States. The 100 works in this exhibition have been selected by the prestigious curator Santiago Espinosa de los Monteros and includes paintings, videos, sculptures, installations and photographs.

See ya there!

CAMH for Katrina

The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston announced today the launch of the Katrina Artists Trust (KAT), a grant-making trust to provide financial support for visual artists in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama who were affected by Hurricane Katrina.

By focusing its support on the painters, sculptors, and other visual artists who lived in the regions damaged by the hurricane, the Museum’s KAT program provides a unique source of revitalization for a community with a long artistic tradition. By helping artists rebuild their studios, purchase new materials, and even salvage damaged works, the Trust’s grants will also contribute to the economic revitalization of the devastated region, aid these communities in their reconstruction efforts, and help renew cultural tourism.

The Museum welcomes other organizations as partners and collaborators in this effort. For further information, please call 713 284 8250 or visit their website.
