Lest I forget or get too busy:
I’ll cheat and quote the press release, “In her essay “Efforts of Affection: A Memoir of Marianne Moore,” Elizabeth Bishop recalls sending Moore a lengthy poem, the most ambitious poem she had up until then attempted. Moore (and Moore’s aging mother) sat up late into the night, rewriting it. Their version of the poem arrived in the mail the next day. Bishop writes: “The revised poem had been typed out on very thin paper and folded into a small square, sealed with a gold star sticker and signed on the outside “Lovingly, Rose Peebles.” I had had an English teacher at Vassar whom I liked very much, named Miss Rose Peebles, and for some reason this name fascinated Marianne.”
If you have any questions, ask your college English teacher or – better yet – go to the Brand Library Art Galleries, 1601 West Mountain Street, Glendale, 91201.
But first! There’s more! On Friday, Nov 12 visit Elephant (3325 Division Street, 90065) to see “Be Here Now” including work by Rebecca Kolsrud, Anna Mayer and Andy Roche. Exhibition curated by Josh Mannis. If you don’t recognize some of these names and you still choose not to follow the links… I just can’t help you.
I’m pretty sure I’ve come across Mayer’s website before, maybe when I was posting about the Elysian Park Museum, and Mannis’s work I’ve seen (and admired) in a bunch of places. I’m very much looking forward to seeing what all these fascinating artists do with the diminutive pachyderm of Glassel Park.
Each of the above posts offer me ways to digress. Eagerly then, I digress.
Outpost for Contemporary Art (follow the link to Material Press and you’ll be reminded of Outpost, too) is once again hosting its “Monster Drawing Rally” this Sunday, Nov 14. Did I say that with enough emphasis?
2225 COLORADO BLVD. LA 90041 at The Eagle Rock Center for the Arts
12:00 noon to 6:30 PM
Hmm. I got so excited posting about Outpost that I forgot the other thing…… Good Lord it’s 11:30 and I have to work tomorrow. I may stop now, unless while typing I recover my lost idea. Not yet. Still nothing. Damn.
Talk to you tomorrow.
