Comments: Suzanne Smith Arney originated and wrote the “HERArt” column for HER magazine from 2004-2012. Each column profiled a woman artist in the metro area, along with photographs of her work. Her Art/Herselfcompiles the 48 features into a beautiful book. In addition to being a history of those years, it also serves as a guidebook to the current art scene as most of the artists interviewed still live and work in the metro. Even more, says the author, the book can be taken as a handbook to artists and art work generally, revealing the hows and whys of artists’ motivations, approaches, processes, and techniques. Arney has added a preface and “Reflections,” short essays that comment on and update the original profiles. The book also includes forewords by Janet L. Farber, Director, Phillip Schrager Collection of Contemporary Art, and by John Rogers, Owner/Director, Gallery 72.
