Gallery Talk with curators: Tuesday, January 17. beginning at 7 pm (How this show came together; what we were trying to do. )
The passing, all too soon, of Bill Cottman, one of our community’s most active, connected, and important artists, a little more than a year ago, has left us all pulsing with memories and believing he is still with us in so many ways. Thus, our gallery show to remember him as a photographer, video artist, writer, poet, and bookmaker.
To do his lifetime of work justice, we would have to hire a huge hall. Instead, we have at Beverly Cottman’s suggestion, invited four artist friends of Bill and Beverly to curate a show touching on several aspects of Bill’s artistic life. The show includes many of his photographs and photo series, (of course), video work, his various published books, and ephemera collected by the curators. Like all of Bill’s shows in our gallery over the past twenty years, it will be unpredictable, surprising, informative, revelatory, and professionally superb.
In addition, anyone with a good Bill Cottman story or memory is invited to attend our gallery in person or call in during the Mostly Jazz program on KFAI-FM, Saturday, January 7th from 9 am to 11 am.
