Re: “This Exhibit on Environmental Degradation Is Just Sad

It's so interesting how differently people can respond to the same art and the manner in which it is presented. If readers would like an alternative perspective, I thought I'd share this link to a write up about the show by Abigail Doan of The Wild Magazine:

Of course, I also hope people will come check out the work themselves this weekend before the show closes.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and respond to the show.

Re: “Seven Must-See East Bay Exhibits that Honor the Black Panther Party's Fiftieth Anniversary

You failed to mention the wonderful exhibit at the Oakland Main Library's Oakland History Room, "Revolution is a Daily Struggle: remembering the Black Panther Party's Social Programs." http://oaklandlibrary.org/exhibits/revolution-daily-struggle-remembering-black-panther-partys-social-programs
The Panthers were fulfilling lots of basic social needs that the local and state governments were not addressing. That's an important part of their legacy. Check out this exhibit!

If GATS wanted to comment on this article, he couldn't because it's against the East Bay Express' policy.

Re: “Celebrating the Albany Bulb's Most Memorable People and Art

No question, what happened to the folks at the bulb should be memorialized. Shame on the perpetrators who attacked the homeless for committing the crime of living on a dump.

Re: “Call and Response

The Oskstop Gallery exhibit and the book are pure delight. The poets and writers were succinct, sure, exact and soulful. Oakstop is a community treasure and James Gayles and his creative partners at Pochino Press have created a wonderful, replicatable model that can spur creativity and bring exposure to other urban
artists.

Re: “This Exhibit on Environmental Degradation Is Just Sad

Understandably, one would like to be fed another utopian hope (to stir one's emotions) when confronting failed past utopian endeavors. But wouldn't that be missing the point? I agree that this work might invoke sadness, despondency, and pity. In my opinion, that allows one to begin the process of looking at our environmental/cultural/economic status from a responsible point of view, instead of swapping new utopian visions for the old ones.

It is also understandable, in a capitalist system, to expect art to distract, entertain, offer fantasy or escapism- but it takes courage and conviction from an artist to present the reality she sees, even if this causes discomfort. Congrats to Ms. Escott.

Re: “The Aesthetic Commons at Chandra Cerrito Contemporary

Hey DeWitt, thanks for the nice review! Do come visit Visual Aid Gallery, we'd love for you to see the show. One correction: Visual Aid Gallery is located on the top floor of the lovely Mechanics' Institute Building, 57 Post Street, San Francisco. The Mechanics' Institute does not have a gallery. Thanks, Julie Blankenship

Re: “Handymen at Vessel Gallery

Yes, fabulous work. Surprising, elegant and whimsical. Love the mixing of material textures in Gordon Glascow's work. Lonnie Lee always finds the most amazing work by new and talented artists!

Re: “The Truth is Out There: B4bel4b Exhibit Believe the Hype Exposes Ideological Battles Behind Neutral-Seeming Digital Age Info

This looks (to have been) fascinating! Too bad the story was published so late in the run of the exhibit, and so near to the time of the closing event!

Re: “An Oakland Film Series Examines the Black Aesthetic

Hey, I'm Ryanaustin (Curator) and there should be two corrections to the piece.

1. We did not screen Watermelon Woman, instead we screened the shorts of Cecile Emeke

2. The Directors name for Day by Day is Jehnovah not "Jehovah"

Re: “Seven Must-See East Bay Exhibits that Honor the Black Panther Party's Fiftieth Anniversary

I wrote this song last week in honor of the Black Panther Party:

If invited, I will perform it at the anniversary events.
