Maisy May Marrs is an Orlando artist who recently sold some of her work at the City Arts Factory downtown. She reports that after she left the gallery she ran into Herbert Freeman and admired the piece above. Mr. Freeman had promised it to a woman named Evon, but he said she was very drunk and he did not believe she was coming back to collect it. Maisy offered to buy the piece with proceeds she had just earned from selling her own work. Mr. Freeman agreed and crossed out the dedication to Evon he had written on the back and wrote in her name. He also wrote in the word Project so she could find this blog.
As far as I know Mr. Freeman has only seen this blog once when I showed it to him about a year ago. He was only vaguely aware of it before then. He was very pleased.
A few months back I discovered Donald Blank’s 1994 short documentary of Thai Varick (1941-2001). Varick was a incredibly talented sculptor who used wire as his medium. I have searched the web for months trying to find photographs of his work but these pictures are all that I can find.
