Panelists included Eva Lake, who's interviewed a staggering range of artists on her KBOO radio show Art Focus, and is a critically-acclaimed artist in her own right. (Today's the last day to see her show at Augen Gallery, if you're in town.)

 

 

Paul Sutinen also took part. He co-chairs the Department of Art and Interior Design at Marylhurst University. We love his insights into art and the built environment. (BTW if you're curious, here's that essay Paul mentions that he calls the best piece of at writing he's ever read.)
