When a portrait photographer as prominent and brilliant as Annie Leibovitz is brought to the brink of destruction by the economic crisis, compelled to relinquish her copyrights, past, present and future in a Faustian bargain with a pawn broker (see New York Times Feb. 24, 2009), we may well wonder what is in store for artists anywhere and everywhere.
Happy New Year! Let’s sip a cup of gladness now that we are on the back side of the solstice and, this week only, basking under the brightest, closest full moon of the year (only a little more than 222,000 miles away).
We are in for some treats the next few weeks. The River Falls Community Arts Base’s Music in the Park winds up another great series (see calendar below), to be followed in short order by the 13th annual Art on the Kinni Juried Art Fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13, rain or shine.
Whether or not you’ve attended the latter event previously, you’re sure to enjoy the lovely setting beneath a canopy of trees all along the Kinnickinnic River. There will be 40 artists this year, many new faces but some old favorites. Clayton pottery will demonstrate raku and Wampus Glass Studio will blow glass.
