It's time again for the Jeffry and Lenny show on WAMU. I'll be on Kojo Nnamdi this Thursday at 1:00 p.m with Lenny Campello, discussing current gallery shows and the state of the visual arts in D.C.

If there's anything you'd like to hear addressed, you can call in--(800) 433-8850--or write to the show:

Or feel free to e-mail me directly sometime today.

This afternoon I'll be doing a little gallery crawling--and dodging some thunderstorms, I suspect.

Tonight I'm planning to check out Kathryn Cornelius' Andrea Fraser-esque performance, Art Services (Waste) at Randall Scott Gallery and Transformer. She's scheduled to be at Randall Scott from 5:00 to 5:30, and at Transformer from 5:30 to 6:00. Presumably she'll be climbing into some sort of teleporter shortly after 5:29.

The performance is part of Welmoed Laanstra's SiteProjects DC, which got off to a troubled start with Janis Goodman's aborted Workingman Collective piece.

Kathryn will be doing performances every night this week, including one at Curator's Office this Friday, where there will be a closing reception for their current drawing show with the alliterative title.

Read faxes that Cornelius sent to the galleries participating in her performance here.

Kathryn's Art Services project brings to mind the work of Mierle Ukeles who's been touching on similar issues since the 1980's. Everything old is new again. . .

While on WAMU tomorrow, would you remind Lenny about my recent query on who are the "5-6 DC area artists" in the "ranks of the secondary market" (in his opinion) and which 2-3 are still alive?

And you could always plug the Sondheim Prize opening Friday at BMA and our "also ran" Semifinalist group (including Cornelius, Mary Coble, Brandon Morse, Molly Springfield, Jason Zimmerman and yours truly) opening next Thursday, July 19.

I know, I know - shameless self-promotion.
