Leaving at first light with the dew covered drawing machine lashed to the cabins roof we motoring out of Wick Harbor. Soon we were sailing under full sail south bound with an incredible sunrise off our portside.

Once out to sea we changed our bearing for south and sailed down the coast of Hoy. Its majestic cliffs were stunning and soon the famous "Old Man of Hoy" came into view.

After lashing down the drawing machine at the ships bow we sailed out of Pierowall Marina at 9:40am, two hours later than we had intended to sail due to heavy fog.

I loaded the drawing machine while we were grounded in Sanday's Otters Wick bay. Housed in its rope case and tied down to the cabins roof I suspect there will be more movement at this position on the boat.

Windshield Decal Semiotics and Doctrinaire Cultism in the Artwork of Brendan Donnelly

Annabel Osberg

The title of Brendan Donnelly's first exhibition at Paul Loya Gallery, "How To Be A Magician In Your Spare Time," is something of a misnomer--the show has little to do with magic. However, the emptiness of the titular promise is itself an ironic trick in keeping with the artist's skepticism of magisterial charlatanry.

At 11:23, I loaded the drawing machine with Drawing No.01, shortly after we left port.

Her work is infused with the concerns of the outsider, the downtrodden, the marginalized and the oppressed. War, social justice and a call for an acknowledgement of the world's ills permeate her material.

Mining Creativity From a Secondhand Store: The Clayton Brothers at Mark Moore Gallery

Annabel Osberg | Posted 08.19.2014 | Arts
Annabel Osberg

The exhibition's color scheme is gaudy and disjunctive like the colors of a thrift store's multiplicity of objects. The Claytons' palette is skillfully mismatched in a tongue-in-cheek nod to the untrained chromatic discord of paintings found in secondhand stores.

'The Most Beautiful Drawing Ever': Pegasus (1987) by Jean-Michel Basquiat

Matthew Israel

Jean-Michel Basquiat's "Pegasus" (1987) has always intimidated me. It was usually one of the last works I showed students when I taught Basquiat, and I never said much about it. Its massive size, allover writing and symbols overwhelmed me.
