Blog List & Links

I have added some local links and a Blog List to the sidebar.

The first entry on the Blog List is
Urban Sketchers. Urban Sketchers is a network of artists around the world who draw the cities where they live and travel to. This is a really good blog that is regularly updated and has drawings by many different artists in a variety of styles.

ART:21 Videos and TV Program

I recently checked some ART:21 DVD videos out of the library. These are collections of episodes from the PBS program about "Art in the Twenty-First Century" featuring a variety of artists. I have never seen this program on TV. I don't know whether it is shown here, but is worth watching for.

There are many brief videos from the program on YouTube. (Search for "Art: 21" for all of them or "Art:21 painting" for just a list of those about painting). Here is a Season 5 Preview (October 2009). This video is excerpted from the Season 5 episode "Fantasy," premiering on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 at 10pm (ET) on PBS (check local listings).
