It has become glaringly apparent that no new art history teaching is coming my way. Academics and I don't agree. Not that I mind unemployment. Not having a job allows one to create stuff all the time. Having said that, it would be nice to have a gallerist interested all the time. So, I'm back to betting on my book about the Philadelphia Art World or lack thereof, Work Shy. Is thereof a word? Nevermind. Constant research of similar writing: I am reading Steve Martin's book, A Thing of Beauty. It is not bad and humorous. Mostly about high end auction houses though. I was afraid he'd beat me to the punch. Maybe I should send him the manuscript (for tips on an agent) or perhaps a CD of art images. He knows what he's talking about!
