Sculpture by Anne Truitt.

Dear Readers,

I am delighted in this October issue of TAS to be presenting the work of two artists with whom you may or may not be familiar. Klimchak is an Atlanta-based musician and composer who is finally getting the recognition he deserves (he received one of the four 2009 Loridans Awards). Here, we present some of his music and his ideas about improvisation. Amy Worthen is a remarkable artist who is also an extremely interesting museum curator of drawing and printmaking who manages to divide her time between two cities an ocean apart.

On a different note, Floriana Piqué, one of our correspondents in London, gives us her reflections on Anish Kapoor whose exhibition is currently on view at the Royal Academy in London, continuing through December 11, 2009.

Update: I wrote an appreciation of Anne Truitt’s work for the October 2008 issue of TAS (you can find it under Archives). An exhibition of her work opened at the Hirschhorn Museum in Washington, DC last week. 

Anne Truitt: Perception and Reflection is on view from October 8, 2009 to January 3, 2010.

I wish you all a delightful Autumn.

All my best,

Deannaa
