Art:21 is a television series (which aired on PBS for three seasons) that features contemporary fine-artists from different backgrounds. I've seen a few programs and really enjoyed watching the artists talk about their pieces and seeing the work in progress. If you weren't able to catch the shows, the Art:21 section on the PBS website is just as good. You can see their work, interviews, and video clips from the show as well as links to more information on the artist. Visit two of my favorites, Margaret Kilgallen (whom I featured two weeks ago), and Ellen Gallagher, an amazing artist in printmaking.
