more evidence that Atlanta needs one go-to site for art info is that various people have spoken with some bewilderment about how Hushpuppy Gallery seemed to disappear without so much as a whisper.
Well, it turns out that Hushpuppy had an opening on July 19 that was not promoted on the Allison Rentz art calendar creation, on the artnews listserv, on the blogs of Cinque Hicks or Jonathan Bouknight or Jeremy Abernathy or any of those other folks who go to everything alternative and report what is cool that one must absolutely go to.
and today I found by dint of long searching the info that Hushpuppy had an opening on July 19th and who knows how long that show ran? Pine magazine ran a story about the gallery and its imminent closing but most of us thought it was long gone.
So what does it take to get galleries to TELL US THAT THEY EXIST?????? I got on their e-mail list and got nothing at all from them about this July 19 shindig.
