Dear artscope

The recent article excerpt on Animism by Gina Fraone (“Sacred Monsters: Everyday Animism in Contemporary Japanese Art and Animation” at Tufts University Art Gallery; November/December 2009) makes me want to hop on a northbound jet immediately and see the exhibit for myself. What a clever relating of childhood memories to the all-too-childlike-andwhimsical oddities of this cultural facet of Japanese art. Nice work!

Dear artscope

Just a quick thank you for a very thoughtful and well-written article about my work by Rick Agran in the November/December 2009 artscope. This show, “Fabricating Time,” is now in its third venue and has received its share of commentary but I think your piece captures best the spirit and intent of my work. It is not possible that in that late night conversation from Morocco — and after I’d had several glasses of wine — I could have been as articulate as you [Rick] made me out to be, so thank you for whatever tidying up you had to do.

Dear artscope

I want to thank you for the very fine essay Franklin W. Liu wrote about our show, “no man’s land,” at the AIB Institute of Boston Gallery in Cambridge. I just want to say how meaningful it is to read his comments and thoughts. Good criticism always offers us a chance to see our work differently, sparking new ideas and pursuits. Both Dana and I realized when we met Franklin that the essay would be a gift to us. Thanks so very much for his interest and efforts. I especially noted his words about “death’s feast.” Preparing the wall text for the exhibition, I went back to look at Thomas Mann’s ending of Magic Mountain. He refers to “this feast of death.” And it is just exactly what it is. I look forward to now following your articles even more closely.

Dear artscope

I have recently moved to Lowell and have enjoyed my first reading of your magazine. I am also a volunteer with the Ayer Lofts Gallery at 172 Middle Street; I wish I had known of your magazine earlier and invited your staff to the closing reception in November for our “Evocations: A Collage Odyssey” display by Sandra Shuman and Carol Procter. Congratulations on your exciting and varied coverage of the New England culture. I look forward to the next edition.

Dear artscope

Thank you for the kind and wonderful review by Brian Goslow of my “Baseball Faces” exhibition at the Panopticon Gallery in your September/October 2009 issue. I have sent a copy to my pal, Willie Lee, who I am sure will get a smile on his face. When he sends me some pecans from the tree in his backyard in Birmingham, I will send you some.
