Episode 97 : Today I talk to artist and manager of the Providence Gallery, Rod Wimer. The Providence Gallery has been around since 1978! We talk about the secret to their longevity, consigning art, working as an artist, all sorts of things. Lost my voice. apologies for the croaky intro.
Episode 90: Today I talk to Robin Strongin at the Center for Contemporary Political Art in Washington DC. I generally try to stay away from politics on the podcast, but I had to learn more about this gallery.
They want to represent both sides, but no pro-Trump artists responded to their calls for artwork. They have to work with what they have. So I encourage any Pro-Trumpers and Right Wing artists to connect with them.
