      This week, I’m feeling extremely sanguine about visual arts writing in Austin in the coming year. A few nights ago, a group of ten Austin-based writers gathered at Fluent~Collaborative to talk about regional arts criticism. Not only eager to converse about the subject, but also ready to act, these ten will officially become …might be good staff writers on January 1, working to increase the quality and scope of arts coverage in and around Austin. Simply put, it’s a big deal to have such a solid group of writers committed to covering Austin’s visual arts scene next year. (Look forward to our new staff writers’ “Best of Austin 2008” picks, forthcoming during the holidays.)

      In addition to having a closer-knit, larger writing team at …might be good, we want to hear what you, our readers, think about …might be good. Your comments will help us to shape the future of the magazine. We would really like to hear from you via this online survey and, as always, we welcome letters to the editor.

      This issue is more lengthy than usual; we wanted to cover as much as possible before the holidays. Don’t miss the coverage of the 2008 East Austin Studio Tour, a review of Justin Boyd at Art Palace and, further afield, a review of the inaugural exhibition at Capitain Petzel, Berlin, which included the work of Austin-based Troy Brauntuch.

      Happy Holidays!

      Claire Ruud is Editor of ...might be good.
