Marsha Goldberg

{Mp3}

Today’s episode is an interview with New Jersey artist Marsha Goldberg. She is an accomplished artist who has shown all over the country and internationally. I became familiar with her work when it was on display in two different shows at the Alfa Art Gallery in New Brunswick, NJ.

We discussed  painting, her approach to mark making, and her upcoming show at the B. Beamesderfer Gallery in Highland Park, NJ.

Her show’s opening at the B. Beamesderfer Gallery (6 N. 2nd Ave., Highland Park, NJ) is on April 19, 2012 from 5-7 PM.

I won a bagel date for two to Ruthie’s in Highland Park!

My belt project won third place overall. My goal was to get the winners to wear the belt, but I didn’t want to twist anyone’s arm at the show. I’m happy it one, but I almost threw this piece out before the show. I was most proud of my Nyan Cat project bellow.  The Nyan Cat is about 7 feet long and 4 feet high, made entirely of small paper notes and glue I bought at the local dollar store.

Both projects cost me about $5 in material costs.

Take On The Champ

{Mp3 Link}
This episode we discuss Jeff Songco’s new blog on the Huffington Post and the Buck Art Contest.

Jeff Songco is making more moves to be the United States representative at the 2023 Venice Biennale. He is now blogging about his life and the arts on the Huffington Post. You can see him discuss the Super Bowl commercials, his recent solo show in San Francisco, and the death of Whitney Houston.

As the reigning champ of the 2011 Buck Art Competition, I also issue a challenge to the rest of the artists in the 2012 Buck Art Competition. Do you have what it takes to take on the champ? I am taking no prisoners this year so come out and take on the king.

If you would like to participate in the Buck Art Show, check out the flier and feel free to ask any questions.

Public Displays of Affection:
Jeffrey Augustine Songco
January 7 – Feb 18, 2012

Jeffrey Augustine Songco risks being accused of massive over-sharing with his first solo exhibition, Public Displays of Affection. Displaying extraordinary powers of negative capability, Songco constructs a world in which his two great passions, Queerdom and the Catholic Church, not only peacefully coexist but thrive on each other. Songco constructs his art from objects and images that go both ways, as it were, such as Peace Poles, spears of wood with uplifting slogans that began to show up in the yards of liberal churches in the 1980s.
