Tom Cramer has a new show opening at Laura Russo this week. He will be my guest tomorrow on Art Focus. His exhibitions keep pushing forward into new territory and this one in particular has a big variety of approaches. Some seems Byzantine; his silver and gold is better than ever. One work is like an oil slick, reminiscent of Arts and Crafts and Tiffany. There are loads of Art Nouveauish sexy loops and plantlike shapes. He's doing this all-over wood burning thing too which is subtle from afar and intense close up.
Excerpts from a special program on the health care crisis featuring Dr. Paul Hochfeld, Corvallis emergency room physician and one of the Mad as Hell Doctors who toured the country in September to build popular support for single payer. Interviewed by Peter Shapiro and Kevin Card.
