At Richard Telles Fine Art, new works by Pae White, Richard Hawkins and Ginny Bishton look good, if completely disparate. Bishton continues to be one of the younger L.A. artists to watch. Her tightly compressed drawings and constellations of tiny photographs are (to use an embarrassing but still useful word) intense. Her piece here is more overtly luscious: a massive collage of photographs of crumpled items of brightly colored and patterned clothing.

A Santa Barbara art collector has promised to donate paintings, sculptures and carvings worth $5.5 million to the Conejo Valley Art Museum--but only if the museum can move to a new location, which could cost millions of dollars. Now located in a cramped storefront in the Janss Mall, the Conejo Valley Art Museum operates as a gallery, displaying new exhibits every few months.

After three years of study in Paris, Arthur Wesley Dow came home to Ipswich, Mass., in 1889 and quickly grew tired of the conservatism of Boston art circles. His restlessness led him to a systematic study of world art cultures that culminated, in 1891, with his discovery of Japanese woodblock prints.

August 11, 2004 | Niall Ferguson, Niall Ferguson is a professor of history at Harvard University. His latest book, "Colossus: The Price of American Empire," was published this year by Penguin.
In Europe, nothing happens in August. It is not, of course, that absolutely everyone is on holiday. There are still an unhappy few slogging in to work. But the commuter train is half empty, the flow of traffic at rush hour is uncannily smooth. Virtually no serious decision can be taken in a London office throughout this month because there is always at least one key executive on holiday. The effect of high summer on other European cities is even more dramatic.
BOOKS
February 15, 2004 | Robert Boyers, Robert Boyers is editor of the quarterly Salmagundi and Tisch professor of arts and letters at Skidmore College. His most recent book is "A Book of Common Praise."
This latest book by George Steiner is a series of reflections on "the charged personal encounter between master and disciple." Originally delivered as the Charles Eliot Norton Lectures at Harvard two years ago, the book is at once provocative and sobering. Acknowledging that the very terms "master" and "disciple" will seem to most Americans in "our present age of irreverence" more or less preposterous or laughable, Steiner defends them by examining what is at stake in the pedagogic encounter.

With his poll numbers shrinking and pending healthcare legislation more controversial than ever, President Obama's critics are celebrating his much-diminished presidency. And if unemployment numbers don't improve, the president may not just be a diminished president but a finished one. Still, Barack Obama will today complete one of the more successful first years of any modern president. Love him or hate him, Obama has demonstrated that he can be both president and presidential in the face of some galactic challenges.

America's ability to relate wisely and well to Islamic societies will be constantly tested this new century. We won't get far if we think of all of Islam as synonymous with the Taliban, the extremist regime in Afghanistan. Three recent developments in Muslim societies provide extraordinary examples of new opportunities to reach out to the future.
