I'm embarrassed by the art blogging community's reaction to Charlie Finch's recent rant on ArtNet. Why respond at all, especially if the reaction is as vitriolic as the rant that precipitated it?
In any case, who has time to keep up with all the art blogs anymore? There are hundreds worth reading, but there are also thousands of books and magazines to be cracked and untold hours of living away from the computer to be done, including those spent in - oh, yeah! - the studio. Shrug off Finch quietly and get on with things.
In other art blogging news, one of my recent drawings is featured in the Pittsburgh installment of "The Blogger Show." That exhibition, at Digging Pitt Gallery, opens on November 10th, with a reception on December 8th.
Tonight, however, the NYC installment of the show opens at Agni Gallery. A number of artists who blog (and well) are included in the show. I plan on stopping by to check out the work.
