Say hello to La Norda Specialo

It might be too early to change the name of my blog to the MATT OFFENBACHER SHOW, but if the fella wasn't always doing such great things, I wouldn't have to keep writing about him!

You asked for it (during the "Vancouver Problem" discussion at Art Klatch) and now Matt has delivered. La Norda Specialo (the new, more international name) now has a web presence, courtesy of Jon Kvistad. The website has a great preview of the current issues, down-loadable back-issues (.pdf), a list of contributors, an index and lots more. Check it out - there's some really great writing in these!

Issue #5 is out now and includes the following:

  • Erik Peterson: In Defense of Painting
  • León Ferrari: Written Painting (1963)
  • Leo Saul Berk and Claire Cowie take time to talk
  • Mary Ann Peters: The Split ...
  • Jenny Heishman: Do you believe in heaven above, do you believe in love?
