Arts in Washington

Here’s another of the Washington Post arts pieces about how New York is the place to be.

Local theaters sometimes got frustrated when the newspaper’s critic reviewed shows in New York City rather than DC shows.  Similarly, some galleries and museums grew tired of Gopnick’s features on the Met and the Whitney shows.

This time the piece focuses on the potential futures of painter Ian Whitmore and glass artists Graham Caldwell.

Most intriguing to me was this quote: In this city’s small scene “you can establish a niche pretty quickly.” Anything new and good really stands out, and quickly gets picked up by dealers, collectors, critics and art lovers.”
