If you’d like to know what people are saying beyond this ‘small pond’ blog, there’s actually a lot of interesting things being said. Also, some not-so-interesting things. Here are a couple of links to different blogs, articles, and opinions. Read ’em if you feel like and feel free to post more.

Baltimore City Paper. “The Real World: Authenticity Isn’t the Issue in Christine Bailey’s Grossly Misunderstood Epic Failure” by Bret McCabe. January 30. http://www.citypaper.com/arts/story.asp?id=15156

The DCist.com. Jan. 31. “Lastly, if you read about art at all on the internet, you know about the controversy going on regarding artist Cara Ober and the artist who copied her style and arguably hung it as her own, which essentially boils down to a story of art school drama (though perhaps also a cautionary tale for young artists working with agents who thinks they deserve more attention than the artist does). We only have one thing to say on the issue: if the only time the Washington Post’s chief art critic will deign small gallery coverage of local artists worthy of his time is when it involves breaking a big gossip story in which he backhandedly slaps a talented local artist in order to bask in the inevitable attention, please resign your position at the Paper of Record and start a just start a damn blog already.”
