      Jack,
      My wife, Izumi Ueda, passed this link to me because:
      1965: draft threatening so joined army to have “choice”
      Army Security Agency, Army Language School, Monterey California, met Joan Baez, went to her school for non-violent resistance, deserted, later turned myself in, refused orders after declaring myself conscientious objector, finally accepted transfer to medics with CO status, after year’s nursing training sent to VN (67/68), Bronze Star, was medical treatment for POW camp, after Tet offensive of 67/68 returned to US, sent Bronze Star back to Nixon with a suggestion of where he should keep it. Later, when I was teaching at MICA, I wrote a series of poems about my memories of VN…also, in a very real sense, all my work has been affected by that experience…
      Hope things are going well for you…

    Donald Kuspit on Augustin Fernandez 

    Wish I’d said that!

    Agustín Fernández: Ultimate Surrealist 

    This evening at 5:00 pm Donald Kuspit will talk about his most recent curatorial effort, Agustín Fernández: Ultimate Surrealist. The talk will be followed by a reception from 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
    “Every exhibition is an argument, and the argument of this exhibition is that Agustín Fernández is the “ultimate surrealist” by reason of his climactically bizarre treatment of the female body, the obsessive theme of a great many surrealist works, and because, to use Andre’ Breton’s words, his works have a more “immediate sense of absurdity” than other surrealist works, particularly if absurdity is understood to signal unresolved conflict between conscious perception and unconscious fantasy.”

    Artist Bon Vivant Professor Tim Doud has invited… 

    Artist/Bon Vivant/Professor Tim Doud has invited four American University Visiting Artists to exhibit together in Sightlines: Ann Pibal, Jill Downen, Frank Trankina, and Dean Smith. The show opens here tonight, 6:00 – 9:00 pm, and is a perfectly-crafted subtly-stunning artistic kiss sandwiched between the psychologically-charged sexually-monumental restraints on the third floor (Augustin Fernandez: The Ultimate Surrealist) and the dazzlingly-effusive and supremely-requited love affair on the 1st floor (Washington Art Matters II: 1940s – 1980s).AU-KAC-Winter_e-Sightlines-03v-LR

      Stackhouse? Terry Braunstein? Tom Green? Joyce Tenneson? Me?

      • jack rasmussen 8:17 am on January 22, 2014 Permalink

        Stackhouse and Green were in the first Washington Art Matters six months ago. I couldn’t find Joyce Tenneson. You and Terry will have to wait for Washington Art Matters III, when we get some curators with some sense!

      Congrats to everyone.
