Art Break

They don't all have to be fed to the pulp machines: Artist Beth Cote turns old books into new art.

Artists lined up for blocks hoping to be one of the eight finalists for the latest reality TV show, Artstar. PBW was tempted to try out with some of her own watercolors, but alas, it's not a comedy.

On the subject of paintings, stop by Carla O'Connor's website, which is as lovely as her watercolors. If you can't paint 'em, admire 'em.

All of the above found in the July 2005 print issue of the Artist's Magazine.

  2. I'm sorry, but that Artstar link reminded me of Lori Prokop's latest hoax, Book Millionaire

  3. That was my initial reaction, too, JM, but the project got fairly decent coverage in the Times.

    I wouldn't mind watching a documentary-type show about artists competing for a show, but the inherent nastiness of reality TV presentations turn me off.
