Last Day at INK Miami

Posted: December 04, 2016 10:26

December 4, 2016: Last Day at INK Miami It’s been a terrific time with a steady stream of visitors, from eager and/or blasé high schoolers, to hard-core curators, to gallerists fueling their own habits. Peggy Bacon, Will Barnet, William Baziotes, Howard Daum, and Karl Schrag, all especially drew interest. The days began with coffee on the front porch of 156 as colleagues arrived to ‘open the shop.’ Maybe this is what small town main streets used to be like? Our back door lead to a corner store with exotic juices and hot lunches. No need to go into the fierce baby gecko...

Review of Flint Trip

Posted: November 26, 2016 15:45

We’re just back from the Print Fair at the Flint Institute of Arts. Our thanks to all who made it a success, especially curator Tracee Glab, director John B. Henry, and registrar and resident problem-solver Peter Ott, and including museum guards, front desk, gift shop, and café staff as well. Flint is a fascinating and charming city on the nineteenth century Saginaw Trail, on the Flint River, about 65 miles northwest of Detroit. Beginning with fur trading in 1819, then lumber production, Flint became “Vehicle City” through the making of carriages. In 1908 General Motors was formed in...

Posted: April 23, 2016 17:35

On Thursday, April 20th, the exhibition Art for Every Home: Associated American Artists, 1934-2000, opened at the Grey Art Gallery of NYU. The show, and the catalogue, that also has the AAA print list, are so welcome! Our thanks to Gail Windisch who started the ball rolling and who not only created the list of the AAA prints (begun by Meg Hausberg at AAA in the 1970s), but also researched and explained the complicated publishing, commissions, gallery sales-triangle that worked so well in the late 1930s and 1940s.   Liz Seaton, of the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, Jane Myers,...

LA Fine Print Fair, 2016

CALIFORNIA REPORT, JANUARY 2016

Posted: February 05, 2016 11:09

Los Angeles in January was as terrific as ever – OK a little cool and some much-needed rain – but still GREAT. At LACMA it was just lovely to see the Frank Gehry show (there’s never enough time!) and find the William Baziotes painting, Congo, 1954.   First there was the Los Angeles Fine Print Fair at Bonhams on Sunset Boulevard and then the Los Angeles Art Show at the Convention Center.   Fortunately we were able to start hanging at Bonhams on Thursday because we had much too much to install if everything had to be done on Friday, the day of the reception. The dark walls made...
