From the exhibition: America Starts Here: Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler.
I went to see the exhibit “America Starts Here: Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler at AMOA downtown. I also went to the gallery talk today. I love the work and the ideas behind it. I highly recommend that you make it to this exhibit if you get a chance.
I stumbled on an exhibit by Scott Barber while taking a few days off in Galveston for our anniversary. Very keen abstract work, a lot of which had a very topographical look, was manipulated from photographs using PhotoShop into unrecognizable beautiful forms which then make their way onto the canvas (or aluminum or polyfiber, as the case may be). I found this nice review of a show Barber was in Artlies.
Barber’s works were the best thing in Galveston on this trip, and the rest of the trip was pretty good! Sadly, this was a posthumous show; Barber died in 2005 of complications following a bone marrow transplant.
