There are a variety of reasons for that — I might go into those sometime. Suffice to say that it’s ironic how little I write about art, one of my passions.
My column about Betsy’s show can be found here.
My column about the Goicolea show is here.
There have been some great exhibits at the Jepson since its opening in 2006, but these two are both standouts.
And, notably, the Cain show was organized solely by the Telfair, and the Goicolea show was organized by the Telfair in conjunction with the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.That should make Savannahians even more excited — about how far the Jepson has come in five short years, about exceptional local talents like Betsy Cain (and others who have had Jepson shows including Nancy Hooten, Luther Vann, Ellen Susan, and Marcus Kenney), about the esthetic choices of the Telfair staff, and about the future.
Betsy’s show is up till December; Anthony’s until just after the first of the year. I have no doubt that both locals and visitors will turn out in big numbers.
I’m sure I’m not the only plotting return visits.
