The Blogger Show

Woo hoo!

I've been asked to participate in "The Blogger Show" which is the joint project of a number of galleries in Pittsburgh and New York, namely The Agni Gallery, The Digging Pitt & The Panza Gallery. I'll be transferring five pieces from my online journal of poems and photographs into a physical medium, to be shown at the Panza Gallery in Millvale, PA. The public reception is December 15th.

A concept that's come to my attention in the past few weeks, as I've become involved in this show, has been that of an "art narrative"... which would be another way of saying, what we talk about when we talk about art (wink to Raymond Carver), or maybe even, how we talk when we talk about art. The following is from (of course) a critic's blog: "Our entire understanding of Western art is largely the result of a discourse that has taken place over the past decades across a variety of locations and media: artists' studios, galleries, museums, newspapers, arts journals and bars. Within the past five years another medium has entered this discourse: online weblogs, or blogs."

An online preview of the show's participants, including myself, is available here.
