Miamiart.us and Momoko.us, started by Artblog.net readers out of frustration at my recent absence.
Now I can relax a little, because my computer is refusing to recognize all external disks, including the CD player and my camera. (Freakouts like this tend to bode ill for Macs. Sigh.) Miamiart.us put up images from Jordan Massengale's and Brian Reedy's shows at Dorsch, which I think are each one of their strongest to date, and Momoko put up images of Rene Barge's show there, which I think is one of his weakest to date. I'll have more thoughts on this soon.
I bought one of Brian's pieces.
I am still eagerly awaiting new blogs from Kathleen and Denise. That would put us at five or six and start quite a row. Get to it, people.

Other shows are found through two links I put out.
Thanks, Franklin, for linking to my blog. Lots of things need to be fixed - site design, functions, etc. etc. I plan to put lots of photos.

Thanks Momoko, maybe the new times can at least figure out how to cut and paste it now. We'll see.

We're working on it! But the extra pressure is motivating.
Good to see other folks starting more blogs, though. Yay for more Miami art blogs!

It was a coincidence that Lucas and myself posted Brian Reedy’s at the same time.
I describe his work as Tickling Art - the type of ticking that can become addictive.
Professor Momoko said, "Ticklism".

Well, having nothing much better to do, I decided I'd visit the lair of the fearless in Wynwood today. As I was driving to get on I-95, I changed my mind. Guess I just didn't have the courage.

I assume you are talking about the Rubell Collection Jack, although I realize I'm using the term collection loosely here, should be called the final resting place for borring art. "Come to the Rubells where our art isn't afraid to rot away, news at eleven." Did you stop by the Dorsch show Jack, If so what did you think?

Yes, Lucas, I meant the Rubell place. I went to the Dorsch opening, but I'm waiting for Franklin's promised post on it, which I assume is imminent.

Last night, for the heck of it, I went to the New World School of the Arts Rising Stars Student Exhibition in downtown. It was not as bad as I expected. I would assume those works were done by relatively "good" students, and I could certainly see the pressure of being students, trying to graduate, or something. I will post some photos tomorrow.
But I am glad I didn't go to any school here at all. I do not consider influence from institutions a good one.

I meant to see that show, Momoko, but I had to work late Friday and couldn't go. However, regardless of the work shown, the "Rising Stars" business is ill-chosen. It's both tacky and vulgar, even if it's now OK to be those things. Reminds me of promotional advertising for some TV thing, like "American Idol."

Thanks Franklin for the link. Your return is very much welcomed. Your back, new blogs, its sunny and my thesis is finally shaping up. Life is good.
