I know I had a painting of cherry blossoms in last last month’s Ugallery post but I couldn’t resist posting another once since it’s actually cherry blossom season in Washington, DC. That and the fact that the painting is ridiculously beautiful! In case there is someone who doesn’t know about Ugallery, they sell affordable art […]

I’ve had such a wonderful response to my previous Ugallery posts that I’ve decided to make it a monthly feature. The student artists deserve our support and especially need it in these tough times. There are a lot of new beautiful works that I love and I hope you enjoy them too! Cherry Blossoms Part […]

Why Don’t You…

Why don’t you check out the new work by James Nares at the Paul Kasmin Gallery before the show closes on February 21, 2009. These new paintings are exciting to view since they “incorporate iridescent pigments” which reflect light and look more dynamic than his paintings that use solid pigments.

I liked Domestic Art: Curated Interiors so much that I actually paid for price for it at Archivia books in NYC because I wanted to take it home and read it right away. Not only are the interiors beautiful but the art collections are too. It’s definitely worth picking up for yourself or your favorite […]

I need to start my holiday shopping, or what little of it there will be this year, but I want to buy meaningful things and also items that don’t cost a lot of money. So it was perfect timing when I received an email from my new friends at Ugallery informing of their upcoming 20% […]

So I like to support anyone who has made a career out of their passion and become an artist and now you can […]

I am beyond excited that today is the beginning of the JMW Turner exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York which runs through September 21, 2008. Joseph Mallord William Turner was born in London in 1775 and began painting at the age of 14, studied at the Royal Academy Schools later became […]

I was so saddened to learn that artist Robert Rauschenberg died today at the age of 82. His “Combines” show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2005/2006 was one of my all time favorites. The art I’ve featured here is from that show and althought most of it dates from the 1950’s, it is […]

I had been meaning to write a post about Italian art collector Giuseppe Panza and his book Memories of a Collector for a few months but kept putting it off. Then I saw the book on a desk in the BKH designed room at the Kips Bay Show House and decided that it was now […]
