Publication: Sounding for Harry Smith: Early Pacific Northwest Influences by Bret Lunsford
Sounding for Harry Smith: Early Pacific Northwest Influences, a newly published biography of Harry Everett Smith’s formative years in the Pacific Northwest written by Bret Lunsford. Meticulously researched by the author, a long time native and historian of the area, Lunsford explores the connection between the Coast Salish culture in the Puget Sound during the Great Depression and its influence of Smith’s childhood where his immersion in art, alchemy, music, film and anthropological research began. The roots of time, place and community are intertwined throughout the 232 pages of this beautifully printed and bound hardcover book. Foreword by John Szwed, preface by Phil Elverum, with chronology, selected bibliography, endnotes, maps and over 100 historic photographs.

Famously Unknown: Legacy Building in the Art World
Art history is fickle. Why do some artists prevail while others falter? How does one build the reputation and legacy of a lesser-known artist? Sound curatorial and art historical methods must be combined with a keen sense of the demands of the commercial marketplace. Independent writer, curator, editor and publisher Raymond Foye and Gagosian’s Rani Singh will discuss the general principles and methodology of archiving, editing, and presenting the work of overlooked artists (and writers). Through shared experiences and firsthand accounts, their experience and relationships with artists Jordan Belson, Gregory Corso, Rene Ricard and Harry Smith will be explored.
