Peggy Bacon, Low Tide (Wellfleet, MA)

PEGGY BACON AND CLARE LEIGHTON FEATURED IN PROVINCETOWN

Posted: April 09, 2017 16:17 Last Updated: | Susan Teller

 Down the Road: Wellfleet Printmakers from the 20th Century is on view at the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Provincetown, MA, from April 7 through May 21, 2017. It’s a wide reaching show with exceptional examples of work by Clare Leighton and including many of the actual woodblocks for her 1954 book, Where Land Meets Sea – The Enduring Cape Cod, jewels in themselves. Leighton’s print of the Oyster Houses, 1948 (and my new favorite of hers), is paired with a related preparatory drawing, as well as Peggy Bacon’s Low Tide, 1952, Albert Edel’s extremely scarce Oyster Shacks, and eve...

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, fo...


LA Fine Print Fair, 2016

CALIFORNIA REPORT, JANUARY 2016

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 every...

Sunday, July 12, was the last day of Art Santa Fe 2015. We loved being there and had many wonderful visitors. We were especially pleased that works by Peggy Bacon, William Baziotes, Isabel Bishop, Howard Daum, Peter Grippe, Hugh Mesibov, and Angelo Pinto, (east-coasters all) were noticed and admired!   Monday, July 13, we drove to the Puye Cliff Dwellings, a National Historic Landmark and ancestral home of todays’ Santa Clara Pueblo Native Americans. The site is run by the Pueblo; the guides are members as well. The mesa is volcanic tuff, a light, easily cut material that was al...
