Darren Santos took some fabulous pictures from the Transformer auction from the Transformer website. Take a peek when you get the chance.
DC-based sculptor Foon Sham is in a group show that got reviewed by the New York Times. Not only that but this image of one of his works accompanies the review. Very cool. Earlier this fall, Foon had a solo show at Heineman Myers Gallery, which is currently showing another great area artist, Amy Lin. Amy’s show is getting extremely favorable reviews too. Yay DC artists and yay Heineman Myers!
My good friend Bill Monet won the “Figure/Portrait” category of the Camera Arts Portfolio contest. You’ll recall that Bill took a fantastic portrait of me and Gidget in the brake shop a couple months ago. He knows how to make people look their best. The winning images are from his underwater series.
My buddy Beth Farnstrom just started writing a column on the visual arts in DC for Washington Life magazine. Her first piece in the series appeared this month and included a little section of my art picks for December and January. Fun! I’m looking forward to reading this regular feature.
