The Social Pages have good news for the many fans of Andy Dinan’s Gallery Girl. The Art show, formerly screened on Community TV channel C31, is coming back soon, but as an online show. Um not the air, more the YouTube, it will be a warts and all, scaled down version, going straight out to the fans on the YouTube.

What I loved about the C31 show of 2011 was Andy’s constant effervescence and obvious love of art. She’s excited about art, unlike many industry stalwarts, and Gallery Girl avoided throwing artists into stylistic filing cabinets, preferring to ask questions like: ‘What is this?’ and ‘Why did you do it?’ Even: “Where are you going after this?’

Watch and learn Andrew “W is for Women” Frost. I was able to catch up with Andy last evening at MARS’ pop up shop where, rather ironically, an exhibition called POP, IS THERE A PILL I CAN TAKE FOR THAT? was on show. Andy was showing artist Cathyann Coady’s impressive series of enlarged pills. Performance enhancers anyone?  Natalie Thomas
