Burlingame, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2005
Quent Cordair Fine Art is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Dianne Durante as a guest columnist in the Artist's Studio. Dr. Durante will be posting monthly essays, book and movie reviews.
This month's post is an essay titled The 2005 Turner Prize: English Art in Plain American. Discussion with Dr. Durante is encouraged and welcome in the QCFA studio. http://www.cordair.com/studio/durante.htm
"Every year the announcements of the Turner Prize's short-listed nominees and winner are major media events. Every year the exhibition of the nominees' work is disparaged either as a dismal farce or as shocking sensationalism. Every year advocates of contemporary art assert that the real benefit of the Prize is that it gets the public talking about art." -Dr. Dianne Durante
Dr. Durante is a freelance writer on art and current events, and the author of Forgotten Delights: The Producers, A Selection of Manhattan's Outdoor Sculpture. A second book on New York sculpture will appear in 2006. She runs the website http://www.ForgottenDelights.com, and has lectured on painting and sculpture at Objectivist conferences.
