Isn’t it exciting that we are only TWO days away from the first day of spring. Hip, hip hooray! And, as if that’s not enough to celebrate, I’ve got some good stuff here today for art aficionados.
* On Friday, March 20–the actual day we’ve all been looking forward to during this long, cold winter–Jules Feiffer will be at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill for a “Kill My Mother” Conversation and Book Signing at 6 p.m. During his chat with Parrish Director Terrie Sultan, the award-winning artist (and recent Guild Hall honoree as well) will talk about his latest graphic novel. A book signing will follow. follows the discussion. You can buy a copy of the book online at http://www.parrishart.org beforehand and pick it up at the museum shop on Friday. While you’re there, be sure to check out the new exhibits by Feiffer, Joe Zucker and Madoo’s late great Robert Dash. I’ve been in twice already since they started hanging them. Fascinating work!
* If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area, check out Paton Miller’s new exhibit at Gallery Z in Beverly Hills. Those who know and love the real deal also know that it’s worth the trip. For more info on this wonderful artist and all-around great guy, check out his site at http://www.patonmiller.com.
