Gwyneth Leech: Construction Series On View February 15 through March 31,2018, at the Kaufman Arcade, 139 West 35th Street/132 West 36th Street, NYC. This exhibition is presented by the Garment District Alliance. When a new building began to obliterate her studio’s light and north view Gwyneth Leech began an entirely new project: The Construction Series. First she drew and painted views of that building, begun in 2015. I was there one day when the construction crew and artist waved to one another. As it neared completion and more work was done inside, out of sight, Leech turned her...

INK Miami Report

Posted: December 16, 2017 16:41

It was wonderful to be at INK Miami at the Dorchester on Collins Avenue, Miami Beach! And with the glaring exception of rain-by-the-bucket on Saturday morning, we had one beautiful Florida day after another.   In our favorite Room 156 we arranged several concentrated overviews. These small exhibitions began with American Mural Studies by MORDI GASSNER, AXEL HORN, DOROTHY BROWDY KUSHNER, BEN SHAHN, and with an enormous proposal for the St. Louis Post Office, The Miner’s Life by HUGH MESIBOV.   Work by MESIBOV will also figured in an installation of paintings, drawings, and prints,...

The exhibition features holiday cards made by Pinto for family and close friends.

The authors include Thoreau, Maya Angelou, and Wendy Wasserstein, and stretch back to the eighteenth...

More on the NY PRINT FAIR

Posted: November 18, 2017 13:09

 This is a shot made at the Print Fair on October 26, 2017, shortly after I presented the IFPDA Book Award to Antony Griffiths for The Print Before Photography, his groundbreaking tome that has hit the town by storm. He probably doesn’t remember this, but I was also the presenter of his IFPDA Achievement Award in, I think, 2007.   Those are Keepers of the British Museum with me: From left to right is Stephen Coppel, Assistant Keeper Modern Prints and Drawings After 1880, ST, Antony Griffths, former Keeper of Prints and Drawings, and Hugo Chapman, Keeper of Prints and Drawings. Coppel...
