Brendan Monroe - Places Between Here and Here

On behalf of the Monroe family, I'd like to present Brendan's new paintings and sculptures! His show (opened a little over a week) runs till November 14, 2009 at Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, California. Come see the show if you are near, otherwise, we too can experience it here.

The Old Patent Office

The Reynolds Center, a.k.a. the Old Patent Office Building in Washington, DC, houses the National Portrait Gallery and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. In addition to a great permanent collection, there is currently a WPA show and a folk art show on display. The Reynolds Center feels like a secret among all of the monuments and Smithsonian museums— during a brief visit home last week, I had the place practically to myself!

I'm a Big Baby.

I went to the Neue Gallery up on 86th and saw a great show of German and Austrian art - Shiele, Kokoschka, Dix, Grosz, Beckmann, Klimt - with an emphasis on the drawings. Definitely worth seeing. The Shiele inspired me to do a self portrait while watching scary movies on Sunday.

SModcast #37

I was recently invited to participate in SMart: A SMod Art Show at Gallery 1988, which celebrates the release of Kevin Smith's new book. 25 artists were each assigned a SModcast episode (or a portion of one), to base their piece on.

I received a segment of Episode #37, entitled Jennifer Connelly Remake, which basically explores the possibilities and scenarios if Jennifer Connelly decided to remake the life of Scott Mosier. I can’t do this episode any justice by writing about it, so if intrigued, listen to it HERE. It’s a super long episode, so you can skip right to it starting at: 29:00 min.

Still Alive...

...though ashamed of how very absent I have been from class.
Geez, it's like I live in another country or something.

An attempt at redemption, here is a piece I just finished for The Walrus Magazine's December Issue; a full-page to accompany a beautiful fiction piece by Andre Alexis.
