New Arts Blog in Town

FYI: I've recently learned that Pierre Ruhe, former AJC classical music critic, and Cathy Cox, former AJC visual art critic have started an arts blog. It's still a work in progress, but they have begun posting reviews and comments, so I wanted you to know about it. 
 
Cathy Cox writes, "We believe that thoughtful criticism is a key component of a vibrant arts community, not only as an important link between art and its audience but also as a platform for debate and dialogue. Both Pierre and I continue to contribute reviews and features to the AJC, but we feel --and your expressions of concern suggest you share this view-- that metro Atlanta needs more. We hope that our blog, www.artscriticATL.com, will help to fill the gap.
 
We intend to apply the same journalistic ethics and standards we have demonstrated throughout our careers and, as we add writers, will expect the same from them. So please bookmark our site, add your comments and keep us apprised of what you are doing. We hope to supply you with a steady stream of reviews, news and comments--your and ours."
