I used to comment about art happenings around town, but it wasn't appreciated and was constantly pulled.... Guess I have to be paid by the PWeekly to be able to do that.

Coming from an artist would have been a better read :) with more descriptions on the art and artists rather than a "Paid Ad" style ~ above.

I'd be happy to write for you guys on "Art In Public Places" anytime, PWeekly ;) I don't cost much ~ A behind the scenes look is always an interesting take on the subject. Just a thought.

Perhaps even a Photo by one of the artists such as Engela Olivier-Wilson along with a quote from the artist, a description of her work. An artist that reaches in and pulls out such depth in her work that it makes you feel like you are swimming with the Turtles she has depicted here in this image posted, that doesn't begin to show the brilliance and talent of the artwork she shares at the Harrington Gallery. Check it out before this exhibition closes on April 6.

My recommendation is to leave things as is. There is no need to further explain the exhibition. If the public wishes to view the art on display, they will do so.

thank you very much...

I would be interested in reading art reviews by children and teens.

Their perceptions are unique and often refreshing.

The best news is that they don't waist time trying to promote themselves and make a sale!

tee hee...
