I follow some gallery and museum openings on a website, ArtUpdate.com; they send me updates every two weeks by email.
Artupdate.com

There's one I bet Reyn would like....

Here are a few selections from this week's update -

http://www.fondation.cartier.fr/flash.html
http://www.alisonjacquesgallery.com/05_morrison.php
http://www.feldmangallery.com/pages/home_frame.html
http://www.guggenheim.org/


I'll add website announcements of gallery exhibits from other sources as I run across them.

and will edit this post to change tag line for thread title to reflect the location for new gallery or museum links

my favorite new museum in slovakia. it's on an island on a dam on Danube. One whole side of the building is glass - the middle is frosted glass, so you only see water and sky, very beautiful. If feels like you're on a ship of some sort. And they have fabulous exhibits, something new every month or so. I take everybody that comes to visit there.

Oh. It's called Danubiana. you can check it out at www.danubiana.sk - there is an english version of the website, although slovak version is much more extensive.

It's built after a Roman galley. Roman Empire extended into Slovakia in 4th century AD and they had forts in this area. The whole region is beautiful though - there are extended areas of grassy lands, where many artists exhibit statues. It's a Central European affair - artists are from multiple countries and I love it for that. Worth visiting when one ventures into this corner of the world.

Those certainly are some fine museum links. None of 'em can hold a candle to one of the almost-reknowned local attractions here in The Northwoods, though - The Museum of Woodcarving

And if you think thats somethin' you oughtta see

http://www.freshwater-fishing.org/images/membership_main_musky.jpg
The National Freshwater Fishing Museum

Yup, thats it - the walk-through Muskie is over a half-city-block long, has hundreds of trophy fish exhibits and bits of memorabilia, and stands about 25' tall. Awesome, I tell ya, awesome. Nothin' like it anywhere else in the world.


I can feel your envy from here. Betchya thought we had no culture at all hereabouts.

Miserable landscape design, I must say, but the museum itself seems interesting, amazing really.

Pretty sure the landscape wasn't so much "designed" as "just happened to work out that way over time" Laughing

Laughing How else might ya propose to route the hordes about and around the exhibits and stuff that have happened to get stuck here-and-there-as-they-came-about? Laughing

To be fair, though, there's been some civil engineerin' - those wanderin' walkways are asphalt now - the useta be gravel with occasional patches of weeds scattered throughout. On the other hand, the traditionalist in me sorta misses that now-gone bit of rusticity Laughing

It is sorta messy, ain't it Laughing

It really comes into its own when littered with picnic blankets and garishly garbed tourists, interspersed with screamin', runnin', totally outta-control kids.

Forgive me please, for hijackin' this actually quite good thread - I got carried away with my fun. I'm really impressed with Dag's Danubiana, and I must admit a pang of jealousy comes of knowin' about, but not bein' able to directly experience, the Morrison showing ... I've always liked his work.

No problem. The person who started the thread doesn't mind and joins in. Every two weeks I'll add more links and others are most welcome to add some too.

Timber--

My life is richer for knowing that The National Museum of Freshwater Fishing and The Museum of Woodcarving exist.

I won't say "glorious manifestations of the aspiring human spirit" but I'll offer a heartfelt, "Oh! My Goodness!"

Nothin' on the local museum front so far this year - not even any pavin' news. Season ain't started yet, though. 'Course, its been years since there was an excitin' announcement, so I ain't gonna get my hopes too high Laughing

Failure to repave, how grave...


Dlowan has started a thread on her Trip to Western Australia, and in it on the first page are some photos and links to some wonderful work by the Hermannsburg Potters, aboriginal potters and painters, and their exhibitions. Here's the thread link -

Photography of Taku Aramasa is being featured at the Wirtz Gallery in San Francisco - which is one of the galleries the A2k meet group visited last year.
