These are the primary ezines I read- none are “subscription” but you can support any of them!

Two Coats of Paint (be sure to check out their gallery guide).






There are also some good blogs you can follow:

Helene Herzbrun and Grace Hartigan


Hyperallergic paired these two recently, underscoring that there were contributions to the canon outside of the group known as the Ninth Street Women and the Washington school of color. I wasn’t familiar with Grace’s (RIP) work from the early ’70s. The images link to Pinterest “galleries.”

Louise P. Sloan and Rusty Shackleford

I think it’s interesting to post two artists side by side some time- in this case because they use a similar approach to mark making with different results.

Found Louise’s Instagram profile via a hashtag and she has of course has a site.

Rusty is in both places, too.
