WED, Sept 15th: Anne Krinsky, Artist in Residence Gallery Talk

Anne Krinsky

Delineation Lime, by Anne Krinsky, acrylic on panel, 24” x 24”

Printmaker Anne Krinsky will be the third Goetemann Artist in Residence for 2010. She will give a talk about her work on Wednesday, September 15 at 7pm in the Rocky Neck Gallery.

Anne Krinsky makes grid-based works on paper and panel that occupy a middle ground between painting and drawing. In them, a delicate linear geometry is alternately overlaid with, or superimposed upon, translucent layers of acrylic color. Her panels are built up over time with thick swaths, splotches and drips of candy-colored paint. She subsequently sands these down to create a seamless seductive surface — a visual representation of a present moment shaped by prior experience.

Her upcoming show, Anne Krinsky: Time / Line, 2000 – 2010, opens in October 2010 at the Trustman Gallery at Simmons College in Boston. Krinsky’s layered acrylic paintings are in the collections of the British Museum, the Boston Public Library, Graham Gund and the UK charity, Paintings in Hospitals. She holds a BFA in Printmaking from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and is represented in Boston by Soprafina Gallery.

What is GMG?

What is GMG?

Is It a Blog? an interactive magazine? WTF  is it?

here’s one definition of a blog;

Blog Definition

“A blog is often a mixture of what is happening in a person’s life and what is happening on the Web, a kind of hybrid diary/guide site, although there are as many unique types of blogs as there are people. People maintained blogs long before the term was coined, but the trend gained momentum with the introduction of automated published systems, most notably Blogger at
Thousands of people use services such as Blogger to simplify and accelerate the publishing process. Blogs are alternatively called web logs or weblogs. However, “blog” seems less likely to cause confusion, as “web log” can also mean a server’s log files.”
