if you were in Edmonton today...

Perhaps you went to see "WILL 100 ARTISTS PLEASE DRAW A 1950 FORD FROM MEMORY," a show curated by Anthony Easton after the 1977 drawing by Ed Ruscha, at the Art Gallery of Alberta. In it are 100 drawings of a 1950 Ford, one of them mine. (The show runs through January 6, 2008 - please drop me a line if you get to see it.)

The text running up the side of the picture reads, 1950: Ford truck on the horizon nine years before I was born.

Imagine drawing a 1950 Ford from 'memory'?! . . . . and the title! excellent. What a delicious whimsy. I enjoyed that.

PS - looking forward to the Monday celebration. You go, girl!

Thanks, Anthony!

I searched on Tammy Salzl's name and found the page:

Looks like a beautiful installation, too.
