Just wondering how one enjoys a post on Two Coats of Paint? �My show is up at Elizabeth Harris (April 20-June 3) and I am scratching my head about getting the word out.�With time I’ll get a handle on it, but am currently scrambling to fill the�gaps in promotion.

Congratulations on your show–images at the EH website look wonderful. I loved receiving this�email–I think maybe you meant to send it to Brett Baker at Painter’s Table…?
Publisher, Two Coats of Paint
PS Perhaps I could�publish your email�with some images of your work?

You are so right. Yes, meant to send to Painters Table, Brett’s website. But love your sight as well, and how serendipitous to read about another NYSS alumnus�Todd Bienvenu.
Hmmm..regarding publishing that�email, well, if it suits your program, sure. If it comes back to bite me, I’ll deal with it. �It’s always a bit nerve wracking having one’s work up and on display.�Would appreciate meeting you at the gallery and talking about the paintings. I’m around, so just LMK.
Thank you Sharon!

Thanks for stopping by DUMBO�Open Studios last week. I had forgotten about publishing�our email�exchange–glad your visit jogged my memory. I’m looking forward to seeing the show.
PS��What else did you see at DOS? I got out on Sunday and thought it was an excellent event–a slew�of accomplished artists participated this year,�right?
Even though making art is often an experience that happens in the solitude of one's studio, it rarely occurs in a vacuum. Artists rely on each other for support, reinforcement, inspiration, and challenge, forming communities to avoid feeling like fish out of water in this world. Tim Gowan was one of those artists who cherished […]

Snapshot: Overlooking the Central Baltic Sea from @fotografiska.stockholm. We saw the @shirin__neshat and @therealpeterlindbergh shows — strange combo, but both moving in their own way. The place is dark and loud — more like a nightclub than a gallery. The bar on the top floor is beautiful.
Latest post, link in profile / Inside: Arthouse art house / Contributed by Jonathan Stevenson / The set-up of Vasilis Katsoupis’ slickly but somewhat facilely resonant feature debut Inside is deceptively simple. A high-end art thief is helicoptered onto the roof of a luxury Manhattan high-rise and, with the aid of a techie accomplice, hacks into the security system of an absurdly opulent penthouse, owned by a high-end art collector who is evidently away for a season or two. The thief is targeting several of Egon Schiele’s signature vampy drawings and a singularly valuable self-portrait. Link in profile
Swedish-born and UK-based, artist, activist, writer and eco-feminist Monica Sjöö (31 December 1938 - 8 August 2005) fought for freedom from oppression, but especially for women’s rights. “THE GREAT COSMIC MOTHER” @modernamuseet is her first retrospective. Swipe for the image that was considered blasphemous and obscene in the 1970s.
Rejecting abstract art as a Western male privilege, she asked: “How does one communicate women’s strength, struggle, rising up from oppression, blood, childbirth, sexuality – in stripes and triangles?”
In the studio of Prince Eugen Napoleon Nicolaus of Sweden and Norway, Duke of Närke (1 August 1865 – 17 August 1947) was a Swedish painter, art collector, and patron of artists. Swipe through for a wide angle of his attic studio. Yes, it has a water view :) #stockholmartist #Waldemarsudde #Djurgården #princeeugen #landscapepainting

Latest post, link in profile / Ed Ruscha’s retro spective / Contributed by Laurie Fendrich / The work of the Los Angeles artist Ed Ruscha is often referred to as a West Coast version of Pop Art. The implication, of course, is that since it didn’t come out of New York, it must be inferior. His retrospective “Now Then,” his first at the Museum of Modern Art and first in New York since 1983, contains over 200 works from 1958 to the present…. Despite its outward similarity to conceptual art and New York Pop Art, Ruscha’s work feels decidedly different. Link in profile
