Quotation of the Week

"Art: the better drudgery"

Ronald "Ronoir" Wilson

Not everyone seems to agree. Just check out this article on British National "Art Hate Week"

When it comes to art, what's not to love? Please don't answer that. I don't want to have to delete any comments! (If you want to leave a comment, you could suggest a color for our theoretical scratch-n-sniff paint line).

Have a good week. I will keep you all posted as the Ryder Studio "Alumni Summerfest 2009"* builds momentum. One thing I can guarantee: there will be no drudgery here! Not so much hate either.

* Translation: a few of us huddled around the air conditioner upstairs, working on still life.
