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.

This is not Junk Mail – Limited Edition Books by Washington Sculptor

I try to support the artists I work with however possible, so when I got this information in my inbox about a limited edition book that is being released by the sculptor James Kelsey. If you are interested in his book, please read more about it here.

image003Here are some of the pages. Don’t worry; in the end, the pages will be professionally bound into the portfolio, not strewn all over your floor like in the picture.

So HELLO to whoever is still reading,

For those close to me, you know I’ve been working on a portfolio project entitled, “This is NOT junk mail”. With the economy the way it is, this project was all but cancelled until a friend suggested I SELL a few of these portfolios to help pay for the $3,000 project, so, that is what I’m doing.

There are 160 Signed portfolios in this LIMITED EDITION project, and only 30 are being sold. The cost is $100 if delivered or picked up or $105 if sent to you. Number 1 through 18 are already promised or sold, so there are only 12 remaining.

If you purchase one of my portfolios, not only will it help a great experiment in marketing, but you will have something bound to be worth at least $100,000 at Sotheby’s after my death (don’t get any ideas – I’ve got my eye on you!); if it doesn’t end up worth $100k after my death, I’ll gladly refund your money, so there’s no risk for you.

BUT WAIT!!!! THERE’S MORE!

Um, okay, so there’s really not more, but I really wanted to say that.

Those who have already purchased one or more of these rare books did so sight unseen, but since they will be assembled THIS WEEK, I now have some images of the final product. These beautiful portfolios are approximately 5.5” x 8.5” and have laser cut stainless steel covers and backs. Every grind mark of every portfolio was done by my very own calloused, Band-Aid-covered hands.”
