BS studio visit.

Stopped by Bruce Schiefelbein's studio on the last day of the year to see what he's been up to.  Bruce was just started working on his "After Picasso" work for a group show at Nancy Margolis Gallery in New York next summer.  Artists were invited to submit a 12x9 painting of a work of art from MOMA's collection. More Later.

 Bruce working on the second of the studies he will use for his small painting.

The first "After Picasso" study.

Tony Cragg at the Nasher Sculpture Center

Visited the Tony Cragg exhibition "Seeing Things" at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas today.  The exhibition space was overcrowded which was surprising for a museum of this caliber.  The work was polished and ready for that corporate installation.
