The great sculptor  Reverend Joyce McDonald , who’s making her U.K. debut at London’s  Maureen Paley  gallery this week at the age of 72, got the profile treatment from  Dominic Rushe . “My art has helped heal old wounds and has freed me from the bondage that once oppressed my mind,” she has written.  [The Guardian]

More than 50 years ago, a 1963 painting by the  Australian Brett Whiteley  was loaned to the  Dallas Museum of Art —and never retrieved. Efforts to locate its owner were unsuccessful, and so the museum just sold the piece through  Heritage Auctions  for $575,000.  [Financial Review]

Locals hope that the reopening of the  Buffalo AKG Art Museum  (née the  Albright-Knox Art Gallery ) next month, after an extensive expansion, will juice tourism to the area.

The Kicker

PEER PRESSURE.  Painter  Jacqueline Humphries  is about to open twin shows with the  Modern Art  gallery in London, and  in an interview  with the  Financial Times , she recalled her time at the vigorously conceptually  Whitney Independent Study Program  in the 1980s. “A bunch of the fellows got together one day and marched into my studio as a group and told me I had to stop painting,” she said. Her response: “Wow, this is great, I’m doing something right! They took the time to pay attention.” That is how you do it, artist! The rest is history.  [FT] shares always this Contents with License.
