I recently made a trip to Southern California to drop my daughter off at college.  I made a walk by of Frary Dining hall at Pomona College which houses this famous fresco.  It is a wonderful mural and certainly worth the visit.

I recently ventured to the Western Washington University campus in Bellingham Washington to take my son to a appointment there since he is a new transfer student.  If you are not aware, Western has a wonderful outdoor sculpture collection, which is certainly worth the trip.

Anytime I visit a college campus, I always scope out the gallery and art department.  This summer western hosted Primary Research lab at the the Western Gallery.  This show highlighted minim...

I thought I'd finish with a few works I saw of interest.

This rabbit sculpture caught my eye.  I like the dynamic pose with the rope and hook.  It took me a while to find the artist and medium since I for got to take notes, Beth Cavender Kept (Variation in Shadow), resin infuse refractory material, paint, rope, woodn base at the Jason-Jacques Gallery booth.

I've always been a little skeptical of back lit paintings and photos, but each year a seem to fi...

I thought I'd show a few odds and ends for the Seattle art Fair at the beginning of the month.

 This gives you an idea of the booth set up if you were not able to attend.

 Mark Ryden work is always popular.  He had a few pieces at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. This is Chroma Structure 113, 2015.

 Also from the Paul Kasmin Gallery were some works by Roxy Paine.  This one is Speech Impediment no 2, from this year.  Poor photo here, but it is an expertly carved...

One of the most interesting series I saw at the Seattle Art Fair was a selection of ceramic plates decorated by Pablo Picasso.  I am aware of him creating and decorating ceramics, and have seen various sculptures and busts, but I have never witnessed and plates or vessels like these. There were a few Picasso drawings, prints, and paintings at the fair, but these stood out.  I like the presentation in the shadowbox frame.

 They were displayed at the AC...
