Considering that, among the podcasters I follow, there is one that is making a comeback after three years. Having been off the job through the new years, macworld, and a whole boat load of craziness that has transpired since then. Its been quiet, literally! When I started the daily blog for the SEA SHOW back in November 2008, <it is combined with an archived personal blog> I opted for as they happen alerts on breaking news stories, in a number of different topics, art and otherwise, that interest me.

Needless to say,  I was sifting across a number of links in earnest, trying to lower the growing total of unread messages in my inbox. I have an art vlog, and two to three other video projects, being a daily blogger is no joke but I’ve tried to give it a good run. :->

Since some of the unread mail is some left over Art Basel coverge from December that I had to sort through, there were some cool blog posts with a lot of photos. I really enjoy blogs with lots of photos, and of course if you’re going to critque art at least make a semi-rational and thought-out argument. I read a lot of “reviews” that don’t give me anything, but the ones I do find I enjoy, so I like to include them for you to peruse.

Maybe its because I am playing more games, love colorful things or objects that don’t appear to be art upon initial inspection, but a series of images with paper and art made themselves noticable to me in the process of skimming over articles, deciding which were from art websites worth keeping in my bookmarks or simply something strange on a blog will stand out to me, even if its somewhere you wouldn’t expect to find it, like a blog that may be based on something other than modern art – but may still yet be very interesting to look at. Others I visit, and just happened to be entranced by a particular image or a pleasant feeling I enjoy while I am exploring a cool new art website.

I found this image above in one of the articles that was tagged ‘basel’ and sent to my inbox. Its a bunch of pictures of art show and gallery parties in South Beach, definitely the sort of Miami Art Basel coverage I am interested! I’ve been keeping somewhat of any eye on things despite the lapse in my daily musings, and Art Basel is slowly making its way into the news. It seems like its an item of interest all year round! I could use

Either way, it was really good to get back into the groove at things in the art world, coming and going.  Keep it tuned, and we’ll try to do our best walking on the edges of art. In the future, I’ll try to do more daily posts.

They won’t be as extensive as they used to be, but I’ll continue to do what you enjoy the most, learning and commenting on contemporary art, and this is the place you will come to learn about quirky tidbits like the a strange new niche I have blogged about previously that just keeps coming up, that being Obama Art. Try a search on the SEA SHOW blog and see what you come up with when you search for Obama!

I’ve learned a lot of new words in my short time as a blogger. One of these, the terms deaccessioning, caught my attention since I was blogging on major museums that are in the spotlight of so many news stories. With the art world paying close attention to the drama unfolding in the museum community in Southern California, this controversial topic stirs up all kinds of art commentary, which I find interesting to read.

I don’t really filter the art news that comes across my desk, I usually read or pick over it all . I am trying to get myself in the habit of reading my alerts as they come in to determine whether or I should keep them in my inbox. But I don’t want to be a robot, controlled by a miniature computer in my purse.

Someone didn’t like the art that was chosen to be at the center of the spotlight. This controversial work stirred up passion as Europe struggles to come to terms with an ever changing set of circumstances.

I was blogging about Obama Art a couple of weeks ago and I got another Obama Art news article or so I thought. The process of filtering out news and information is a continual challenge for me. I do love to blog, but one has to sift through a lot of information and disseminate many differing opinions into a coherent and delectable slice of the arte life. We’re all living it. I just want to share!

Art Blogs always get my attention and I am sure there are hundreds but I like seeing all the different designs and color schemes used in the website layout. Art blogs are cool. And there are so many! I’m working on my blogroll but its taking a long time to accumulate the links from almost two months of consecutive blogging! I have to admit it is quite addictive. The only thing that would prevent me from fulfilling one of my most cherished roles is a matter of the most extreme urgency. Your humble host was rather occupied with a series of work and art related events in San Francisco around New Years eve, and shortly thereafter for Macworld 2009, causing the enjoying of a quiet hour in which to reflect to elude your poor author. Sometimes I come across blogs that are not art blogs but may mention or have a post about art. Sometimes there are so interesting or just hard to pin down that I can’t help but stare at the screen quizzically, asking myself, what the heck is this?

Macworld 2009 was nontheless a blast. But that’s another blog. I don’t have much to share photographically from last week, and the impending preparation which delayed the arrival of communication from your humble author and servant on the arts. We try to do it for you on so many levels, and we hope you love it too.

Being ever the humble servant of the arts, I like to make an effort from time to time to meet and work with new artists. So much time devoted to the show relates to video editing, so its nice to come out in person and spend some time working with an artist. An artist with this kind of talent that should not be ignored!

We hope to feature the work of our newest artist to one of our events in 2009. For more information on this years’ events, please visit the seashow homepage.

Mr. Sean Little was kind enough to engage your humble host in a quest to complete some art pieces.

We hope to debut some of his new pieces at one of the events we are planning in 2009. The SEA SHOW plans to provide ongoing assistance to this artist in the grant application process in so that he can finish some pieces in preparation for a joint show this coming year with other SEA SHOW artists.

The addition of a floating mount, fabric backing, and the addition of a frame lends a weight to these works that makes them all the more stirring.

Many of his works have a great deal of treatment after the initial design is complete, adding lustre and depth to his creations.
