In my opinion Sundays are for brunch and art. Yesterday I enjoyed the perfect breakfast sandwich & hot americano on the patio at the Orange Table with a friend, then we walked off our meal by strolling over to SMoCA. I was excited to finally see Artist Tell Stories (Mostly About Themselves) not just because I spent some time working on the exhibition when I interned there, but because it truly is a thought-provoking exhibition, that is just as much entertaining and humorous as it is revealing to the artists often self-involved process of story-telling. With work by Andrew Kuo, Deb Sokolow and William Lamson this show is heavy on text but still doesn’t lack the visual awe that reminds you these are artist, first. Also worth mentioning is the beautiful oil and enamel on paper paintings of imagined and real hollywood movie sets in the gallery next door by Kirsten Everberg in Looking for Edendale.
