Wanted: People With Opinions About Art

Attentive readers might have noticed light posting in the past week. This is mainly because I have been quite busy at work, which has meant late nights, homework, and being pretty tired even on days when I get home at a normal time. When it comes to my day job and my hobby (this blog), they have to coexist--but when there is a conflict, my day job has precedence. But I want this to be a good blog, and my definition of a good blog is one that continually provides new material for its readers.

At the same time, I have become a little tired of my own voice. I like reading reviews of art exhibits here in Houston written by other people--Kelly Klaasmeyer, Douglas Britt, Michael Bise (far too rarely). But I'd like there to be more voices. And not just reviews. I want to read art history, personal history, scene reports, the musings of fl&acircneurs, manifestos, rants, reminiscences, criticism, etc. For example, I love the blog posts of Earl Staley (the Rooster Cogburn of Houston art) and M.M. Hansen, neither of whom are reviewers, but both of whom have things to say about Houston's art, past and present.

So you can see where I'm going. I want to solicit contributors to this blog. If you have an itch to write, I might be interested in hosting what you write. I'm looking for opinionated writers (not cheerleaders, even though a little cheerleading is OK) who can write between one and three posts a week. So if this is you, email me at
