My show at Zip 37 is over. I’ve taken the paintings away and prepared the gallery for the next artist. It’s been a good run and I sold 9 paintings between the two shows at CORE and Zip (essentially the same body of work on two different sides of town) as well as a handful of monotypes. I’m thanking whatever gods may be that smiled on me these past two months- but I’m especially thanking the good folks who like the work enough to fork over some money and take it home. (Maybe I can get that root canal & crown now.)
My next show is scheduled to open at Zip 37 on February 10, 2012. It wasn’t my first choice of date but I’ll work with it. I plan to do some reading and thinking about the sickness that is love in preparation for this show which falls around Valentine’s Day.

Dana Cain is curating her first show for CORE New Art Space. For “The Love Show,” she has conceived a full-blown metaphor of a love affair to give the exhibit a life of its own. Each weekend has special events that echo the stages of love- the joys and the pains.
Opening reception this Friday, Feb. 12 from 6 to 10 PM includes valentines signed by the artists for the first 100 attendees, a PDA photo booth and the arrival of Dream Date Phil Bender and his lucky contest winner/date at 8:30 PM.
Ain’t love grand?
Please ignore the annoying all-caps.
I know neither why it happened, nor how to change it.

okay, an anti-love song, in honor of the fast approaching Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day seems like another holiday co-opted by capitalist enterprises and engineered to make 99% of us feel lonely and somehow inadequate, but what the hell-
I really like this song. If you like it, why not buy it on Amazon or something? Betty Davis is way under-recognized, in my opinion. I wonder if marrying Miles was a help or a hindrance…
