Gallery Gossip

• Graphic designer Bob Biddle, creator of the best Bele Chere poster ever, is back at work after a heart attack. Welcome back, Bob.

• Big excitement in the world of performance art: Michael Sheldon, aka Cookie LaRue, will soon be opening a venue of his own in the back of O’Henrys. This should perk things up a bit.

• Rumor has it that Marie Stillkind of Fort Lauderdale and Nick Cernovitch of Montreal will be in town for the opening of the Hazel Larsen Archer exhibit at Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center in April. Stillkind was secretary of Ray Johnson’s Correspondence School, and Cernovitch has done theater lighting for Cunningham and other major dance and theater companies worldwide.

• Bernie Hauserman, who’s doing a great job curating the lobby gallery at Asheville Community Theatre, recommends a book called Lost Painting – a quick read, and lots of fun.
