This is really weird and kind of freightening

Sizing Up the Curious New William Eggleston Lawsuit: Can a Collector Really Stop Him From Making More Art?

Courtesy Christie's
William Eggleston's "Untitled," 1970
Is it possible to create a new photograph from an old negative? That’s the question at the center of a bitter legal dispute between collector Jonathan Sobel and photographer William Eggleston. On April 4, Sobel filed a complaint against the artist in federal court, alleging that Eggleston diluted the value of Sobel’s collection by printing larger, digital versions of some of his best-known works and then selling them for record prices at Christie’s.

Artist Talk and Opening

Art Center

Why are Painters Panting?

Fri, Apr 13, 7–10pm
Sat, Apr 14, 11am–12pm

Painters Panting draws its inspiration from Painters Painting, Emile de Antonio’s 1972 documentary that examines American art movements from Abstract Expressionism to Pop. This exhibition features 7 painters (David Diao, Craig Drennen, Saul Fletcher, Alex Hubbard, Judy Ledgerwood, Chris Martin, Jennifer West) addressing conditions of exhaustion and desire; using aspects of art history, music, Shakespeare, and the decorative; and making photographs, films, and videos that express the joy of studio experiments and collaborations.

Join us for the Exhibition Opening on Fri night, and the Artist Talk with Drennen and Ledgerwood on Sat morning.

Special thanks to CV Fine Art Services and Dick Blick Art Materials.

David Diao’s Art Life

Sat, Apr 21, 11am–12pm
David Diao, exhibiting artist in Painters Panting, is also a contributor to our new book, The Art Life: On Creativity and Career. His work brings together a wide range of subjects and sources, including his Chinese-American identity, statistics of painter Barnett Newman’s production and sales history, and modern architecture and design. His recent canvases examine the realities and fantasies of his own career. He discusses art and life with Artistic Director Stuart Horodner.

An interesting review of the Current Whitney Bienniel by the museum guards


Here is a Residency opportunity for those graduating

Dear Dr. Thomas,

My name is Leanne Lewis and I am the Art Teacher at Sixes Elementary School in Canton.  I was given your name as the Art Department Chairperson at KSU by my husband, Scott Lewis, who works in the Chemistry Department at the University and I wanted to share an exciting art opportunity with you and your students.

Our school's Art Festival is at the beginning of May and each year we invite an artist to come for the week prior to the festival to be our visiting artist for that week.  We have not selected anyone to be our Artist-In-Residence for this year and need to find someone who is qualified and available beginning April 27th - Thursday May 3rd.  I have outlined the job responsibilities of the Artist-In-Residence and qualifications for the position in the attached document and wanted to see if you wouldn't mind passing this along to anyone that you may know of who would make a good candidate for the position.  I thought this might be good experience for art students or aspiring art teachers, as well as, a nice resume booster and a little extra money to spend on art supplies.   Of course, the position is open to anyone who meets the criteria.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  Thank you so much for your helping us with our search!
