R.B. Strauss, RIP

Bob Strauss, one of the Philadelphia area's finest art critics has died after a long illness. I knew Bob and liked him very much both as a person and as a writer. He worked tirelessly visiting galleries and writing poetic pieces on artists from across a wide range of styles. He will be missed.

It is a strange coincidence that I had just sent off an email talking about what I feel is one of the greatest failings of the art community, that we don't celebrate the living. The next email I opened was from David Foss at DaVinci Art Alliance with the news of Bob's death.

There will be a memorial service for Bob Strauss on
Sunday, February 8th
2:00 to 4:00pm

Highwire Gallery
2040 Frankford Ave.
Philadelphia, PA
