Mark Woolley on Art Focus

Tomorrow my guest on Art Focus will be Mark Woolley. He’s been in the news a lot because he is bringing his gallery to a close. He has one more show to mount in that space: I could have been a Collecta. We’ll talk about his future plans and reminisce about his favorite shows.

It’s also pledge-drive time for KBOO - which means I’ll be offering a couple of family memberships to the Portland Art Museum during my show, as a way of thanking you for supporting the station. We’re also offering a glamour-filled evening at Bluehour. I hope you tune in.
