The year in art, part 1

Posted By on Wed, Dec 30, 2009 at 4:20 PM

It seems that tough times have a way of bringing out the best in us. Locally, this year's art show crop flourished despite taking a slam from the economy. With that in mind, a few of my favorite shows from this impressive year.

Best indoor installations: Scott Johnson's eponymous Smokebrush show featuring one of his gorgeous infinity boxes, and Eric Saline's paper wonderland at CC's Coburn Gallery. Both Johnson and Saline's works enveloped viewers inside spaces both beautiful and bewildering.

Best outdoor installation: Sean McGinnis's string sculpture in Green Mountain Falls. Like a rainbow spiderweb (sans creepiness) this globe of string hanging out in the trees is just fun. It's still there and definitely worth a short detour if you're up that way.
