When it comes to clubs that would have me as a member, my opinion is roughly in line with Groucho's...
All self-deprecating modesty aside, with this whole Art in America thing, I appear in some pretty good company. Rubinstein's list, however, is far from complete. At least one omission is downright criminal. Still, I find the fact that one can't fit an inclusive list of quality art blogs into a magazine sidebar to be undoubtedly a postitive thing.
(And they continue to proliferate wildly. Here's one I found via my site stats this morning that appears to have been started just yesterday. I already like what the author has to say about Lichtenstein, Richter, painting and cynicism.)
So for those of you landing here through Art in America (and anyone else, really), I've come to direct you elsewhere. Though the links list to your right is fairy extensive (though far from exhaustive), it is a bit unwieldy and, as such, is earmarked for a bit of renovation some time after the holidays.
Here, in easier to digest form, is a list of 10 blogs that should have or could have been on Art in America's list. No claims to inclusivity—just a partial and incomplete rundown of some current and perennial faves who didn't make the cut (read: bloggers, don't get pissed if I overlook you)...
Martin Bromirski's Anaba
Franklin Einspruch's Artblog
Cinque Hicks' Bare and Bitter Sleep
Sarah Hromack's Forward Retreat
Cynthia King's Fresh Paint
Miguel Sánchez' Modern Kicks
Mark Cunningham's Rarified Air
Sally McKay's Sally McKay
Carolyn Zick's Studio Notebook
Chris Hand's Zeke's Gallery
Go read now.
Finally, a note about the books lists (to your left) as plugged by Rubinstein... I have to once again cop to the fiction of the gimmick: there are currently no books on my real-life nightstand or bedroom floor. They all remain boxed up from a recent move. These lists, too, are ripe for a revamp in the New Year, maybe taking into account some new holiday arrivals.
