Hamptons Art Hub is pleased to welcome James Croak as a new contributor. Croak will be supplying book reviews, culture commentary and art reviews from exhibitions in the Hamptons and New York City. Readers may have already caught Croak stories on Art Southampton, Eric Fischl's Bad Boy or exhibition reviews from Southampton, NY. Upcoming shortly is a book review on Tom Wolfe's Back to Blood and a review of a Chelsea-based exhibition.
James Croak is a well-known American sculptor who recently relocated his home and studio to Sag Harbor, NY, which is now his permanent residence.
Croak also is a widely published culture-writer having been a staff writer for ArtNet and Edge.org, as well as contributor to Salon Magazine and others. His work appears in twenty-seven books including Salon’s Afterwords, Edge.org’s This Will Make You Smarter, and Thaddaeus Ropac’s Silent Baroque, among others.
Harry N. Abrams and the late Thomas McEvilley published a survey of Croak’s sculpture entitled James Croak.
Croak is happy to join Hamptons Art Hub as the East End art, music, and literature scenes have suddenly burgeoned into a year-round potpourri of important voices.
