Lots of art stories I read today


New York Times: Roberta Smith declares painting is not dead. Great images of contemporary painting.

And several stories in the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Red Grooms’ Philadelphia Cornucopia goes to PAFA!

NCECA gets coverage from Ed Sozanski and Edie Newhall. (I think Sozanski should have revealed his personal interest when he went after the PMA for not having a more ambitious ceramics show!)

A story about a great find–a face jug made by slaves in South Carolina, dug up in Philadelphia in the ’50s, goes to the PMA.
