Another piece worth reading is Liz Hager's piece on Rajani Shettar at Venetian Red
John Haber is writing about Richard Tuttle and abstraction
Sharon Butler writes about the current Squeak Carnwaith show at the Oakland Museum
and Tyler Green has a whole series of links to posts about "Favorite Small Paintings."
