 This week I received the brand-new publication Art for Every Home, Associated American Artists, 1934-2000. Hats off to Elizabeth G. Seaton, Jane Myers, and Gail Windisch, who stuck with this project and saw it to completion. Special congratulations to Windisch. She catalogued the nearly 3000 AAA editions. 

Until now the world has had only the list compiled by Meg Dunwoody Hausberg in, well, after the Selectric typewriter but years and years before the personal computer. That precious document has saved me many times. But now, NOW the book has a complete checklist of the AAA prints as well as instructions for downloading the FREE complete catalogue. The book is beautifully designed with tons of illustrations including two shots of Meg’s and my ol’ boss Sylvan Cole.

Eventually there will be lots more about this project, but for now let’s just celebrate and say an enormous thank you to Liz, Jane, and especially Gail who worked on it the longest and initiated the catalogue. It’s a HUGE job well done.

The related exhibition is currently on view at the Beach Museum of Art, Kansas State University, through January 31, 2016 – still kicking myself for not going to that reception. It will be in NYC in the spring, at the Grey Art Gallery of New York University, from April 19 through July 9, 2016.
