Joseph Noderer: Twelve Hundred Miles Down the Street
Archive for February, 2010
Please give our readers a little bit of information about yourself :
I grew up in a small town in southern New Jersey. Although I definitely wanted to be an artist by the time I went to college, I ended up not liking the extremely conceptually-oriented art program where I was (Williams College) so I majored in Art History instead.

A couple of great posts at Two Coats of Paint this past week: Reassessing Mercedes Matter and The Slaves to Facture vs. Tentative Doubters. Two Coats should be required reading in art schools.

There’s always a broader perspective at Two Coats, and over there a lot of credit gets rightly placed with the names of a lot of under-recognized artists.
