Art and Facebook

I don’t know about you but Facebook has morphed from a forum where I can read about the mundane and idiosyncratic activities of my friends around the world to a kind of event invite clearing house. Every day I receive invitations to do, or see, or join one thing or another, and these are from [...]


Sara Way or Sway as she is known is a queer femme photographer whose work explores sexuality, gender and desire across cultural and international boundaries. I have written about Sway before, in the context of a group show. Now, however she is showing solo, touring the West Coast with a fab sounding book of new [...]

Lyrical things

The holidays that is, and I know we are all going to be jam-packed busy with shopping and traveling and all kinds of other holiday obligations between now and 2014. But hopefully, there will be time in our hectic schedules for fun and relaxation with family and friends. [...]

Focusing on photographic arts

Unfortunately, registration for the Medium portfolio reviews has closed for this year but there will be a portfolio walk at 3rdSpace in University Heights. This event allows participating portfolio review photographers to share their work with the public as well as participating reviewers who they did not meet with during the daily sessions. I’d encourage [...]

Scary and fishy art happenings around town

There are a few things happening this weekend that are worth checking out. The first, on Saturday night, is a Halloween themed gala with costume contests, music, photo booths, gourmet food trucks, opportunity drawings and yours truly performing in the premiere storytelling performance, A Haunting in San Diego. What could this be, you ask? Well, [...]
