AOL Artists Introduces Kathleen Massara of Huffpost Arts as the Next Guest Curator

For the second installment of the AOL Artists Guest Curator program, it is no surprise that we stayed close to home. Kathleen Massara, editor of The Huffington Post Arts & Culture, has curated a collection of five existing AOL Canvases by Cate Parr, Dave White, Josh Cochran, Mike Leavitt, and Rebeca Raney.

The Guest Curator program rotates on a monthly basis, featuring leaders in art and technology. Each contributor curates a collection of existing AOL Canvases, lends their voice to AOL Artists’ social media channels, and guest blogs for the AOL Artists Tumblr. The program brings new and respected perspectives to the artists we have worked with and the pieces we have commissioned. 

In November, we kicked off with Annie Werner, Tumblr’s Arts Evangelist. Her collection featured AOL Canvases by Aakash Nihalani, Dee & Ricky, Jen Stark, Tomokazu Matsuyama, and more. We are thrilled to welcome Kathleen as our next Guest Curator. Her posts have become one of our main sources for Arts & Culture.

“Try to meditate on a Yumi Sakugawa comic and not smile while doing so. It’s not easy. The comic artist crafts Facebook savvy, one-eyed monsters, clumsy cats (in human clothes) and possibly, but not certainly, morbid scenarios with the perfect dose of bittersweetness. With creatures that look as though they were picked fresh out of the imagination, Sakugawa transplants the banal problems of the social media age onto fantastical creatures who too are just trying to get by.

"The SoCal based artist is most well-known for her book I Think I Am In Friend Love With You, which chronicles a bashful cyclops with a good old fashioned friend crush. Yet each of her projects establishes within it an entire world that, even if executed in cartoonish drawings and a dash of text, comes across precisely. Sakaguwa’s comics, while being hilarious, are imbued with a quiet magic that somehow makes a glowing computer screen as ripe with beauty and mystery as a night sky full of twinkling stars. We reached out to the artist to learn more…”

Housing Works Bookstore Café Shows How Indie Bookstores Can Win In The Age Of Amazon

Original article posted at Huffpost Art & Culture: April 25, 2015.

Remember The Shop Around the Corner? The charming children’s bookstore tragically had to close its doors in 1998 after Fox Books — a big box store with lattés, low prices and unbeatable selection — ran it out of business.

Sure, that’s just the plot of the classic Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks vehicle “You’ve Got Mail,” but it was never…
