Simple Clay in Imaginative Hands

Art

Horses and rabbits, squares that might have been cut from aging walls, men and women entwining their limbs and torsos as if clutching each other for dear life, all created from clay and fired in various ways. Such is the fascinating new exhibition at The White Gallery in Lakeville, CT.

A Pleasant Look Back At a Quirky Time

Art

There is something comforting about Jeffrey Neumann's oil and pastel paintings now on view at the upstairs gallery of  The Moviehouse in Millerton, NY,  in a solo exhibition called “Vanishing America.” Like long lost friends or your favorite childhood meal, they conjure up days and times past.

For Ira Barkoff, It’s the Process

Art

Along a shelf in his Cornwall studio Ira Barkoff has propped up a line of small canvases. “This is my life,” he says. And so it is, his art life, anyway: at one end, still lifes of fruit; moving into the center, landscapes; and at the end signifying the most recent ideas, there is a black canvas with an impetuous streak of red at the bottom, like a low horizon. “It shows me my direction, these paintings.”

Zelina Blagden Following Her Own Path

Art

It must be difficult to be the third generation in a family of artists. Zelina Blagden’s grandfather, Thomas P. Blagden, oversaw the art department at The Hotchkiss School for many years. Her father, Allan, aunt Irene and uncle Tom Jr. are all well known and respected artists. Tom Jr. will publish his second book of photographs of Acadia National Park in 2016, the 100th anniversary of the park’s founding; and her father hopes to publish a retrospective book of his work in 2016, too.

Of Light and Dark And Mystery

Art

There is something comfortable, reassuring about Eric Forstmann’s unassuming realism. This master of paint gives you what he sees — Forstmann never paints from memory or photographs — filtered through a self-deprecating, almost shy sensibility. He handles paint in a way not seen often these days, often traceable to the American trompe l’oeil tradition or to the disembodied, haunting flatness of Edward Hopper. In either case, these pictures are the sum of amazing attention to light.

A Photographing Life

Art

It is a modest nude compared to many of Edward Weston’s: Charis Wilson, Weston’s lover, face down in the sand, legs stretched out, from a series of shots taken in California one sunny afternoon in 1936. It caught Jack Feder’s attention. To this graduate student, it was the most beautiful thing he ever saw. 

“That inspired me.”

The Dunlops: Merging Art And Theater

Art

It was the Max and David show at Lakeville's White Gallery: snappy patter, big moves, color, charm, all of this garlanded by riffs on Picasso, Rembrandt, Innes, Gombrich, Frost, Spinoza, Mingus, Debussy, Bach and references to science, philosophy, creativity. David Dunlop is more voluble than his son, Max, but Max is still young. He's picking it up nicely.
