✭ In San Antonio, Tex., McNay Art Museum continues through September 2 "Radcliffe Bailey: Memory as Medicine", described as "[a] celebration both of the greater African American story and the artist's personal discoveries about his family origins." The exhibition's title comes from sets of the artist's "medicine cabinet" sculptures. The show focuses on three themes: water, blues, and blood. Read more about it here and watch the introductory videos below.

✭ The acclaimed, award-winning photography of Los Angeles-based Richard Misrach is on view through October 7 at High Museum, Atlanta. The exhibition "Revisiting the South: Richard Misrach's Cancer Alley", showcases 21 large-scale prints that contrast the exceptional beauty of the images with their deadly environmental subjects. The images focus on a segment of the Mississippi River between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The area known as "Cancer Alley" is home to many petrochemical manufacturers and is a place, according to Misrach, that has one of the lowest quality-of-life ratings in the United States. (Tickets are required to view the exhibition.) Misrach's work is part of the Picturing the South series commissioned by the High.

there is so much beauty and wonder in the world -- the juxtaposition of Bertynsky and Radcliffe Bailey is stunning.

A client suggested that I place a "nice painting" rather higher up on the wall of my dental surgery, so that she could see while dental work was being done for her. A good idea, I thought, to distract clients.
My nurse found and ordered this canvas print,, by Gustav Klimt, by browsing to who made our excellent print from their database of images from western art.
