John Morris, founder of the Digging Pitt Gallery in Pittsburgh, has organized a show devoted to blogger artwork. “The artists in the exhibits represent a range of visual disciplines and aesthetics.” says John. “The one commonality is actively blogging. Some use blogging as a platform for discussing issues facing visual artists while others treat the blog as a public journal. Whatever approach or combination of approaches, all have brought a level of clarity to artistic discourse. Whether your interest is contemporary painting or DIY, you’ll be able to find some practitioner posting about it. This show is a reflection, in physical space, of the ephemeral blogosphere. And by its very nature, an extension of the guiding philosophy behind Digging Pitt’s flat file archive.” Check out The Blogger Show blog where I recently contributed a guest post, Keeping Our Distance, and an online preview of the show.
