Kim 's comment on FineArtViews Interview: Edward Winkleman -- Gallery Owner, Curator, Author and Art Blogger

Thanks, Brian. Interesting that the discussion touched upon the potential ramifications of artists having websites and blogs, and even blogging about hot button issues like politics. I do believe that when politics and art intersect--and they occasionally do--it is entirely appropriate for artists to blog about it. There is a freedom to representing yourself, and the freedom to develop opinions and to blog is part of it. I can see that there might be a conflict of interest, however, when an artist has a strong online presence and also wants gallery representation.
