RIP Kenneth Noland.
"When he was good, he was excellent" - are obits really the place for critics to get in their final digs? (Roberta Smith on Noland)
"Perhaps to his detriment, Mr. Noland was ardently loyal to his formalist principles" (another unelaborated Smith stab)
preliminary obit (presumably full libeling of the deceased to follow)
(edited to be less partisan-seeming--I think it is possible to like Noland without subscribing to any "formalist principles"--in fact I doubt he had them)
Just thought I'd mention that I'm going to have some work up at David Nolan Dec. 10 if anyone's around.

Bill (or anyone), any thoughts on what's being used to wrap paintings these days? I used to buy big rolls of polyethylene but this archival art materials dealer is pushing Tyvek Soft Wrap. They claim it's better than polyethylene AND glassine. I would like something I could use for paintings but also my stretched paper pieces, that (a) wouldn't react and (b) would be easy to tape and untape. I'm also looking at archival shipping/packing tape.
