Mat Gleason: What Artists Need to Know About Gallerists Staying Current I made the leap from critic to curator, but not from writer to non-writer. My decision to open a contemporary art gallery in Los Angeles was as much a case of cabin fever as it was a love of putting art shows together. There is plenty to write about on this adventure through the inner workings of it all. Please join me... We had our big opening party on a Saturday, but Wednesday was my first real day at work. Studio visits? For years, I made a game of asking gallerists at Culver City and Bergamot if they had seen a great show at a nearby gallery, one less than a hundred feet from their front doors. What does it mean for artists that the person who has the power to grant you a career-changing solo show doesn't get out and keep current? So here's a lesson for you all: coverage in the art media is doubly important because gallery owners will stop and read an art magazine or surf the art news websites.

contemporary art - exhibitions listing and opinion Katherine McCoy I have to begin this essay with a confession: it is not easy to write about an old friend and teacher, someone to whom I owe so much. I have been in awe of Katherine McCoy's talents and accomplishments for the almost thirty years that I have known her, and that admiration is framed by my experience of being her student at Cranbrook back in the '70s. When I heard that Katherine McCoy was being awarded the AlGA Gold Medal, I interpreted it as a sign that the AlGA was honoring design education through this specific award to such a consummate educator. My reaction may be an automatic reflection of the stubborn split between those designers who perceive themselves primarily as educators, and those who see themselves primarily as professionals. Katherine often has said that it was a visit to the Museum of Modern Art (on a family trip to the New York world's Fair in 1964) that made her realize she was most interested in the power of design.

Garry Winogrand's Touring Exhibition The first retrospective in 25 years of work by artist Garry Winogrand—renowned photographer of New York City and of American life from the 1950s through the early 1980s —will debut at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) in spring of 2013. Jointly organized by SFMOMA and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, Garry Winogrand is conceived and guest-curated by the photographer and author Leo Rubinfien, who was among the youngest of Winogrand’s circle of friends in the 1970s. As initiating curator, Rubinfien will work closely on the project with Erin O’Toole, assistant curator of photography at SFMOMA; and Sarah Greenough, senior curator of photographs at the National Gallery of Art. Though widely recognized as one of the preeminent photographers of the 20th century, Winogrand’s work remains largely unexplored and incompletely published. In conjunction with the retrospective, SFMOMA will publish a catalogue with essays by Rubinfien; Sandra S.

Hand-Cut Paper Sculptures Take on Organic Forms Artist Georgia Russell creates paper art by slicing, ripping, and cutting apart printed text and transforming it into visually exciting sculptures. Her process began when she used to sift through old books in Paris and sensing that the objects felt lost or dead. So she now takes a scalpel to everything from newspaper and photographs to sheet music in order to create interpretive, energetic pieces that redefine the books. According to her bio, "The atmosphere of the original material she uses is extremely important to her, and her use of either new, or of older papers or images redolent of past lives, is dependent on the mood or idea that she wants to communicate. With repetitive layers, she forms interesting, organic shapes that are reminiscent of feathers or microscopic organisms. Georgia Russell at England Gallery via [Thinx]

Welcome to Dinovember — Thoughts on creativity Every year, my wife and I devote the month of November to convincing our children that, while they sleep, their plastic dinosaur figures come to life. It began modestly enough. The kids woke up to discover that the dinosaurs had gotten into a box of cereal and made a mess on the kitchen table. The next morning, the dinos had climbed onto the kitchen counter to raid the fruit bowl. The morning after that, they had managed to breach the refrigerator and help themselves to a carton of eggs. Things quickly escalated from there. To be fair, they did clean up after themselves from time to time. Usually, though, the dinosaurs are just like anybody else—looking to have a good time. Why do we do this? Childhood is fleeting, so let’s make sure it’s fun while it lasts.

About Follow @Scene360: Artist Shows What Disney Princesses’ Happily-Ever-Afters Really Look Like EmailEmail The one thing you could be sure about in childhood was that every fairy tale would end with a “happily ever after”. But what if we were to continue on with what happened to the beautiful princesses after we closed the last book page? Photographer Dina Goldstein imagines what lives of the Disney princesses turned out to be if we left all the fairy tale luck and charm aside. “I began to imagine Disney’s perfect Princesses juxtaposed with real issues that were affecting women around me, such as illness, addiction and self-image issues,” says Dina.
