I'm not attracted to periods in art as far as i know. The works of individuals catch my attention, but not necessarily any of their contemporaries.

Caravaggio's paintings grab me. I'd like to have a massive print of the calling of Levi.


Michelangelo's sculptures grab me.


I'm pretty impressed by Rubens.

Who would you suggest to play his part in said movie?


I like Johnny Depp for his ability to disappear into a role and someone like C. might intrigue Depp. But now I guess that would make it a big time movie, but maybe not.

The guy that plays Dr Watson in the new Sherlock Masterpiece series might be interesting. We'll see how he does as Bilbo Baggins....

I will try to find an article I read recently about all of the art hitting the market from this time period. Many families have had a lot of art within their family for centuries that has never been seen publicly.


I like the unknown actor in the role as well. If a well known actor was to play the role, my vote would be for Javier Bardem.
brilliant in Vicky Cristina Barcelona Cool

Anyway, I emailed you today.

Big Grin You weren't dreaming. I posted a note about your newest piece, then you answered my question in your email. So I deleted the post. All is well!

The piece is amazing, by the way. BRAVO!
I saw that Herbert Vogel died this past week at 89.

An everyday man with an honest passion for art along with his wife collected over 4700 works of art, all from his very very modest salary from the post office. If you do not know of Vogel, and love art, you should read about him and his wife.

I know they transferred their excellent collection over to the National Gallery of Art years ago. I hope they pay tribute to this true art lover while his wife can be part of it.
Looking for gallery and museum recommendations for Edinburgh and London. We have 6 days in each city, some of which are already booked for other events. We should have a good 3 days in each specifically for exploring the culture and art.

The Tate Modern and Victoria & Albert are clear must-sees for us. What else would you suggest? Our interests generally lie toward the more recent end of the art spectrum ("not so interested in the religious stuff" as she says Smile.)

theweb, be very VERY careful, and do not say I did not warn you. Wink

Not to worry, I'm definitely not in that snack bracket. I'll stick with finding lost gems at the Goodwill. Seriously, you wouldn't believe some of the stuff I've found in last 12 months. Stumbled upon 2 giant lithographs from Roy Lichenstein from an art exhibition in Tel Aviv from 1973. I love them -

I paid $20 each and I'm told they're worth a 100x that Smile My dream is to find a Group of Seven or even a Modigliani Smile

Bravo, well done!

If you find a Modigliani, you will be on the cover of Artforum. Cool

Email me at wineplusart@hotmail.com. We own two large Lichtenstein pieces, and I would cherish seeing yours via email. I will give you a different email address once we connect, and email you pictures of the two we own.

I saw several linocut works of his when I was in Tel Aviv.

Will do. Some of the other artists I have found are:
Wes Lowe
Deidre Hierlihy
Sarah Gersovitz
Stephen Kaye (I really like his work)
Herbie Rose
Karen Patterson

Indeed. Cool


A long-awaited sculpture, perhaps?


VinT,

New sculpture has arrived, and now trying to decide if we will place it outside like our last piece, or perhaps indoors which it currently is. It is only 5'8" tall so we have options.

I also shook hands yesterday on a new sculpture commission for an outdoor piece from drawings. Our current outdoor piece needs a friend. Big Grin

Enjoy your holiday in the U.K., and look forward to catching up when you return.

Unfortunately I'm in Miami that week, then off to Santa Fe to catch up with D for most of September.

If anyone attends, I would love to hear your thoughts.

The Exhibit is on until December 31. I'm sure I'll attend over Thanksgiving while down there.

K, looks like an interesting exhibit. I received a promotional piece in the mail ( really should check our mail more often Smile) and there were several works I had never seen before.

Hmmmm....
Been quite an art week for me. I was given a generous gift by an artist -- Aurora Robson -- that I identified for an exhibition at the Franklin Park Conservatory where I work. She is an artist that works with reclaimed plastics and as part of the gallery installation she created a small wall sculpture and named it Larry after me and gave me the piece at the preview Thursday. While not for everyone, I find her work and message very cool.

Then yesterday I met with Bruce Munro, an artist from the UK who works in light, who might be a part of our exhibition next year.

Thanks W+A. As someone who isn't in the "art world" -- I'm in development -- it was pretty exciting and I was completely taken aback. I just happened to see a piece of her work and thought it was both visually appealing and perfect for the Conservatory given her messages of recycling and the environment. I don't have a picture at home, but I'm going in for the opening tomorrow and have one at work I can send then.

The amount of forgeries in museums across the world is larger than many people expected.

Are you going to read the book?

Short answer, yes I think i will.
my wife noped me on using her ipad, so i'm using this as my excuse to buy a kindle. I've been in a reading rut lately.

K, Roberta Smith reviewed the exhibit for the New York Times today in advance of next weeks opening.

She takes her shots, just like her husband Jerry always does, but her review and the pieces shown in the Times today have convinced me I need to attend, even if it is just an in and out trip.

Make sure you let me know your impressions after your visit, please.

Some of Munro's works look like they are Serra inspired. Those would be an awesome addition next year.


We're now considering havng him as a solo exhibition rather than a group exhibition. Not sure where that will go. With the James Turrell installation that illuminates our Palm House and Bruce Munro solo light exhibition, could make for some great nighttime viewing.

I would never have recognized him except for the fact that there was a story about him on a Canadian news site last week. The photo in the article was different but I think it had the same sculpture piece that he was working on.

It's Tony Dow, the older brother on Leave It to Beaver. I don't think I missed an episode when I was a kid; loved to hate Eddie Haskel.

Just returned from the Festival des Metiers: A Rendez-Vous With Hermes Craftsmen Exhibit. One evening and it is readily apparent why their goods command the prices they do. Their sertisseurs, chemisiers, dessinateurs and maroquiniers are ARTisans of the highest calibre. To share in the secret world of the Hermes ateliers is to walk away with a greater appreciation for quality craftsmanship.

Excellent buy, TPE.

At least you get to take home your purchases... I hate waiting for your new art to finish the exhibit, but also understand.

Picked up the piece yesterday.
Were you able to see the photos of this piece on the artist's website? If not, I now have the photos I could send you direct.

Always exciting.

I'm curious, did you have to buy regardless since it was a commission? The reason I ask is, a friend recently told me he had to purchase a piece he commissioned even if he did not like it.

I have been playing around with art for 30 years, and I have never heard of that. I do always ask the question just to clarify, but never heard of a must buy.

Congrats on your new work!

I received a phone call yesterday that our new pieces were now going to be delivered and installed from Santa Fe tomorrow. Winner

The entire exhibit sold out on Tuesday, so let the shipping begin!

The medium on which the peice was painted is very personal so there was never a question of not accepting it. Indeed, a price was never discussed that i know of, merely an offering for what was valued and what we could afford.
And congrats on your new piece(s)!
Also, we haven't had much spare time to visit any art exhibits, but we were delighted to learn of one coming to our town to celebrate the completion of a 5-year renovation of the Andrea Palladian-designed basilica in our centro. A small town such as ours must have pulled quite a few strings in the requesting line to get the pieces. We are excited to go...
I am doing something risky, foolish and inspiring...

Opening my own art gallery. Side project, not as source of income, more of a way to show my work and other artists from the area. If I make an extra hundred bucks, great, but it's really something to counter the whole NYC juggernaut on art & artists.

If any of you have any advice for me, love to hear your thoughts!

I wish you well, fcs.

Please elaborate on your NYC juggernaut comment.

I'm currently in two different due diligent questionnaire processes for an equity position for a gallery in Dallas, and one in Santa Fe. Perhaps we should take our conversation off-line.
Friends, the Great Day has finally come!! The heavens have heard our prayers, Lady Fortune is smiling in our general direction, and the Powers That Be have demonstrated their compassion and generosity! Hallelujah, brothers and sisters, scream Hallelujah!!!!!!


COSTCO IS NOW SELLING FINE ART!

When I read it in the NYT this morning, I thought it was a joke. Turns out it's not, but it's still kind of funny (at least until I buy something from them). Smile Check out the info on the Robinson and Warhol pieces.
A couple of new must visit museums opening I'm excited about.

The Zaha Hadid inspired Eli Broad Art Museum at MSU and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art new building look very special.

It has been too long since my last visit to Tel Aviv, and this just helps inspire me to visit again.

Stickman, D and I are still interested in the March visit for the Clyfford Still / music experience we discussed.
