Re: “Rocker John Mellencamp's paintings capture the same people and places as his songs

The mention of the Elaine Irwin paintings helped to tie the art back to the Leg Up video and the Whenever album which represent a coupling of John's work as a painter with his music career - which is really my take on his art and this show. It also helped me get around to talking about that great little Hud painting. I wasn't attempting to catalog his relationships in an art review. Hope that clears this up a bit!

Re: “Rocker John Mellencamp's paintings capture the same people and places as his songs

There are two paintings of his girlfriend Meg Ryan there. The ones of Elaine and one of his other ex-wives are older works. and why not? They were/are all part of his life.

Re: “A talk with artist Patricia Piccinini, whose disquieting yet appealing works explore the bond between man and animal

A few words of mine: This is NOT - repeat, NOT - solely Patricia Piccinini's work.

This is also the work of sculptors, silicone painters, etc., whom Piccinini deigns to mention but not to name or credit. She works with "people who are really good at sculpting and fantastic at painting silicone so it looks like real skin."

These artists are so good that Piccinini cannot bring her works to life without their artistic expression - as she admits: "It would be too much about my mark, my process, my engaging with pigs and skin. I need the process to be almost invisible." Then credit them. Have a modicum of artistic integrity. Do not accept praise as a solo artist for work that is not entirely your own.

Re: “This month's crawl proves probing in more ways than one

The correct date on the Hillsboro Art Walk is TODAY!, Thursday, February 2nd. Don't forget to include Kay Bob's, right next to Pizza Perfect, in your walk, where Eight O' Five Jive performs jump/jive, swing/blues, from 6 -8pm.

Re: “Buffalo Bill's not defunct in Cheekwood's Visions of the American West

I guess one of the main advantages, or disadvantages, of America is that it's mythology and foundation can be remembered. In another couple hundred years, it will all be legend held together by convenient artifacts.

Re: “A new project allows Nashvillians an intriguing opportunity to buy art they've yet to see

this is a great idea. its important to support your local artists, not just walk around art openings looking for free wine.

Re: “A new project allows Nashvillians an intriguing opportunity to buy art they've yet to see

Some investors buy high end works sight unseen from major auction houses, they phone in bids based on who the artist is.

Re: “A new project allows Nashvillians an intriguing opportunity to buy art they've yet to see

I think this is brilliant. It's a way to generate arts awareness, support artists on a small (but important) scale, and encourage artistic productivity. Well done Seed Space. Well done Nashville.

Re: “A new project allows Nashvillians an intriguing opportunity to buy art they've yet to see

Hey all, one of the CSArt curators here -- We at www.SeedSPACE.org believe in supporting artists financially. Much of what is time/labor intensive for an artist's work is the energy put into making one's idea elegant-once you've got that down, producing the work isn't as labor intensive (think photography -- that reproducible great shot), therefore so expensive to produce. The CSArtists sell their work for $1000-$4000 a pop in galleries and many of them show internationally, making a CSArt crate a GREAT deal, even if you only like 1 piece in a crate!

The artists we asked to participate all eagerly agreed to make a limited edition run of a work for many reasons, some of which are so that more people would know and own their work. Many of them went above and beyond and are making 50 originals, which we love (but didn't require)!

As artists, writers and curators, we want to get more real (not poster art so often bought in stores) art to more people by making it both accessible and affordable. Like Laura H said, if $250 is too much, split it with 4 friends and make it fun!

Re: “A new project allows Nashvillians an intriguing opportunity to buy art they've yet to see

One thing to keep in mind that art has the potential to appreciate in value. If you own a unique collage by, for example, Mike Calway-Fagen and he ends up having a solo show at the Guggenheim in 15 years---there's a good chance that art work you own by him will be worth more as well. Considering the past (see Robert Rauschenberg, see Cindy Sherman, see Red Grooms). Consider what happens beyond the immediate results. It could be more rewarding even beyond Just supporting your local art community.
