Message from the Editor:

As Kevin Frieitas, the 2011 editor for Picked RAW said, "The world Turns." Kevin turned Picked RAW Peeled into a more than just reports of our Picked RAW choices. He added Daily Jabs, Daily Nags and even some Picked Ripe blogs. He wrote, " Those who write about the arts solidify its place in history and insures its continuum.  A benefit that will reach beyond many generations to come." We welcome all writers, professional, diarist, bloggers, twitters to send us bits and we will include them in the Picked RAW Peeled blog.

We encourage writers to develop their voice while writing about visual arts events in the San Diego County. We intend to avoid art speak so the average reader can understand the text without a masters degree in art history. Past writers include Lonnie Burstein Hewitt, Louisa Garcia, Sheena Ghanbari, Angela Babb Timmons, Katherine Sweetman,Thomine Wilson, Kevin Freitas, reporting on the Picked RAW events. Our thanks to Ann White for her brilliant proofing and to Karla Duarte, Ana Laura Zúñiga and Felipe Zúñiga for occasional translations.

Patricia Frischer is a founder and the coordinator of the San Diego Visual Arts Network, Frischer has taken on the roles of gallerist, curator, writer, teacher, website coordinator and artist. Her many metamorphoses make her difficult to fit into any of the usual art world categories. She is author of The Artist and the Art of Marketing has lectured extensively on marketing for artists. Frischer is a trainer of artists’ agents, art dealers, consultant and collectors (see ArtPro.) Her own artwork has been shown internationally.
