TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT
There are fewer things, in the art world anyhow, more frustrating than seeing a show the day before it closes....but your far-flung Northern Correspondent will tell you a bit about it anyhow.
The other day I was in Petaluma and a friend graciously presented me w/ the gift of a print of this image by Karen Spratt. She said it jumped off the gallery wall and yelled at her to get it for me...and she was right, of course, and now it has jumped onto my kitchen wall very happily!
We had time after lunch to go to the gallery where the work was up as part of a larger group titled The Adventures of Venus and Hokusai. It is a fun and utterly unpretentious project, painted well enough to pull it off.
