Dora Maar @ Tate Modern

Although my main goal for the flying visit to London in January was Blake, there were plenty of things to be seen. And going from Tate to Tate is always a good excuse to hop on a boat. It’s more expensive than taking the tube or busses, but you can’t beat the view. I was…

Art in the Armoury NYC

Another fabulous day of shenanigans down in the city with my art-partner-in-crime the QoE Stephanie; the Wendy Norris Gallery had Carrington and Varo and an opportunity to see them up close without crowds (NYC was very quiet — corona panic, I guess). I was so intoxicated by being close to these works I think I took…

Double Edge Theatre: Leonora & Alejandro – La Maga y el Maestro

People always want to tell you that magic doesn’t exist, yet that is the stock in trade of theatre. Gal pal Stephanie and I were treated to an extraordinary event last night out in the wilds of Western Massachusetts. You’ve got an opportunity to go to tonight’s performance if you’re in the region, and I…

Leonora, Me & The Hearing Trumpet

Check out my conversation with Rick over at Some Other Sphere about my obsession with Leonora Carrington, The Hearing Trumpet and more. I enjoyed it: hope you do, too.  

10 Ways to Wear it Like a Surrealist!

Over at the Fox Spirit blog, I have a piece up on how to dress like a surrealist. Red is dead, blue is through, Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo. And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce — or chartreuse. ‘Think Pink’ from Funny Face (lyrics by Leonard Gershe) Looking for that quel-que chose for your summer or fall…

Leonora Carrington @Treadwells: 1 Aug 2019

How are you spending Lammas? You could be in London listening to me wax rhapsodic about Leonora Carrington and The Hearing Trumpet! Yes, following up on my all-too-brief presentation at the Magickal Women Conference, I will have the opportunity to say much more about both this wonderful artist and her transformative novel. Gracious thanks to Treadwell’s…

Dorothea Tanning at @TateModern

Oh my! If you can get to London you must see this show. Hypnotic, mythic, arresting, inspiring — words fail. This is just the tip of the iceberg. So amazing.

Magickal Women Conference 2019

The Magickal Women Conference, exactly as advertised: a fantastic day! The only fault I would bring up is that there was just too much wonderful stuff to see it all. Well done, looking forward to the next one. Not many photos alas, as there was just too much going on. Victoria Musson‘s Grain Goddess was…

Occult Humanities Conference 2017

I headed down to the city on a day that started out dark but became rather lovely. I saw the lovely Katja and her kitties: she’s the hostess with the mostest. We had a lovely dinner at Veselka, too. I saw a couple of the Ai Weiwei installations too. There are always sights to see…
