I’m talking about Guinotte Wise, a writer and a sculptor from Kansas City. “My last show at the Hilliard Gallery in KC was May-July – Guinotte told me – I have one every May. Had one in Santa Monica at Lois Lambert Gallery Jan 12-Mar 17, and it was pretty successful. Seems LA likes my crazy stuff. Had great attendance and interest in the KC show.” Continue reading
