Who’s behind The Other Art Talk?

Ruth Courtland RUTH COURTLAND, co-host of The Other Art talk, was born in Nogales, Arizona, a Mexican/American border town. Her uncle was an artist and her brother-in-law and sister are artists.  As such, art appreciation was an integral part of her upbringing. She spent many summers  in New York City where popping into the Metropolitan Museum, Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim and various art galleries were part of her everyday experience. > read more
Wendy Wallace WENDY L.WALLACE, a California native, is an enthusiastic art watcher and occasional art maker. She has been lucky to have lived abroad and traveled widely (Europe, Russia, Central Asia, Asia and Latin America) and to have been exposed to a multitude of people and art traditions. She has loved art from a very early age but never did much about it until she met her best friend and collaborator Ruthie Courtland! Their radio show concept was dreamed up at a yoga class and over glasses of house red at El Conquistador, a favorite local hang-out. They both saw internet radio/podcasts as a great way to publicize and document really fascinating and possibly over-looked artists and art developments in the Los Angeles-area for the community. On a more selfish note, they just love doing it because it gives them an excuse to meet wonderful LA artists and members of the art community! > read more
