The drop off for the up-coming CWA* show was last Friday, and since I was in New Britain I stopped by the New Britain Museum of American Art and took in the Helen Frankenthaler exhibit ; https://nbmaa.org/exhibitions/helen-frankenthaler – as well as the Shantell Martin exhibit in the New/Now Gallery. https://nbmaa.org/exhibitions/new-now-shantell-martin. On the way out I stopped by the Gallery Store and purchased “Show Your Work” a 2014 publication by Austin Kleon. I especially liked Chapter 2 – THINK PROCESS NOT PRODUCT. If you get a chance pick it up and read it – there is something in it for everyone.
