Report from the Front

Art criticism, sometimes with context, occasional politics. New shows: "events;" how to support the online edition: "works."



It is my pleasure to report on the publication of a 178-page book, Peter Hide: A Sculptor’s Life, new from Hagios Press, an independent publisher in Regina, Saskatchewan that has also published work by Terry Fenton. As I contributed an essay to this book, and helped to edit several others, I can’t very well review it. I shall merely tell my readers that this monograph about the distinguished sculptor born and educated in England but based in Edmonton since the 1970s also includes essays by Jon Wood, research curator at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds; Sam Cornish, the London-based curator, writer and editor; Jetske Sybesma, Alberta-based artist & art historian; Fenton; Russell Bingham; & Hide himself. It features more than 130 high-quality color and black-and-white illustrations of Hide’s work, from his days at Stockwell Depot up to the present. The book lists at $44.95 (Canadian dollars) but Amazon Canada is offering it for $41.79 and promises that if you order it right away, you can still get it in time for Christmas.
