Rousseau on Mini-Matic
Dr. Claudia Rousseau, in the Gazette newspapers, reviews the "Minimatic" multi-gallery exhibition going on in various Bethesda venues.
"Although it isn’t the Artomatic we have all come to love, it is certainly a lesson in what happens when gallerists are asked to choose from such a huge menu. The best tend to rise to the top, like cream in unhomogenized milk, to the point that duplicate picks had to be sorted out, and names familiar from previous exhibits turned up again, although some with new work. On the other hand, all the work is not great; some real bloopers are on view — just enough, perhaps, to give these exhibits a feel of the real Artomatic circus."Read her review here.
Here's an idea for the Washington Post: the WaPo already owns the Gazette newspapers, which are published weekly in various counties and cities in suburban Maryland.
Since they already own those newspapers, they probably also own the copyright and reproduction rights to any and all stories and columns published in the Gazette.
So... why not "add" some of the Gazette gallery reviews to the Sunday Arts mix once in a while and give WaPo readers a "second" voice and a "second" set of eyes on the area's art scene?
Makes sense to me.
