Episode 137: Today I talk with artist Brian Rutenberg about his art & his books. I had Brian on the show probably a year ago. He’s represented by a local gallery here, the Jerald Melberg gallery. He’s really interesting & his paintings have such unique perspectives, both literally & visually.
Episode 136: Today I talk to Kirby Kendrick, all the way in New Mexico. Kirby is a wealth of information, as well as a top-notch artist. I found her while researching information on Kandinsky and Gabriele Munter. When I saw her beautiful paintings, I knew I had to get her on the show.
