DPA-Spirit of Detroit
Spirit of Detroit by Marshall Fredericks

Subscribers to this blog might think that I’ve taken the summer off from writing about art in the Great Lakes region. But I haven’t, I swear!

I’ve written about experimental printmaker Takeshi Takahara, Ann Arbor painter Sarah Innes, Detroit artists Lester Johnson and the late Gilda Snowden, and about Detroit’s public art, past and present.

I just neglected to include links on this blog–so… sorry, I’ll try to do better going forward.

In its September edition, New Art Examiner will be printing my review of Landlord Colors at Cranbrook Museum of Art. I will be sure to alert you.

I recently wrote an article for Ann Arbor’s Current Magazine about Ypsi Alloy, a creative  collective that features work by 17 of the area’s most talented professional artists.  You can read about them here
