getting arty.

It’s Friday — and the Friday before a long weekend, no less. So why not get a little arty? I deserve it.

Behold: Alex Katz. He’s either having a moment, or my brain started picking up on his frequency, because I’ve been seeing his work pop up enough to make me notice it. Notice it I did…and it is good. Great. Has a quality a bit like the work of another Maine-minded artist (and friend!), Greta Van Campen.

Neither here nor there, but Colby College holds the largest collection of his work, which might be the one and only reason to venture to Waterville.

He has a range of work that knocks my socks off. Here’s a sampler:
