My recent trip to the Norton Simon last month resulted with me taking a moment to stop and notice just how many Degas bronze sculptures are in there collection.  I do not believe that I have seen this many in one place.  That includes a couple of trips to Paris!

 Horses that I had not seen before.

 A number of the pieces were cast posthumously, but nonetheless, it is quite a collection of I guess 20 or more.  Yet another reason to hit the Norton Simon Museu...

Another Pioneer Square/Seattle show I found engaging was that of Evan Blackwell.  This I believe to be an assemblage of smaller pieces from his Relics of Experience series.  These are white porcelain organic objects (created not cast) such as bones and shells mounted in a stoneware case.  I thought they all worked well together and are worth a look.  Here's a link to the Foster White site.

A lot going on in the area for the month of October.  Here's installment 1.

Artwalk.  I thought that the best work of the month was at the 110 Gallery.  Michael Abraham's work is fun and engaging.  The man can paint, and has a wicked sense of humor and creativity.  The show is title: Naughty

 This is "Trump" from 2016.  I'm not sure if that is a self portrait as a pantomime or clown in the background.  A fun painting from a Canadian artist.

I had a productive few days and did get the piece cut out and constructed.  I can't decide whether to dive right into painting it, or build a couple of other pieces to finish simultaneously.

I had a successful day out on the Duwamish on Sunday October 2nd.  Maybe there is a piece inspired about my adventure?
