If you can’t afford a Basquiat like in my earlier post or anything at Gagosian for that matter, you might want to check out Lindsay Cowles Art. Her colorful abstract paintings are not only popular with collectors but interior designers who commission special pieces for their clients. They would look as great in a modern […]

Basquiat at Gagosian

02 . 09 . 13

If you want to brave the snow drifts in New York this weekend, I suggest an outing to the Gagosian Gallery on West 24th Street for the Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition.  Or you can wait for warmer weather since it runs through April 6, 2013.  This major exhibition will feature over fifty works by the artist […]

The first thing on my “to do” list on my book signing trip to Chicago was to visit the Art Institute of Chicago.  I still can’t believe I’ve never visited before and it was a treat to see the famous George Seurat painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte from 1884. The holiday […]

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I braved the crowded to check out the new Picasso Black and White exhibition at the Guggenheim museum. While it’s not as dynamic or inspiring as some of the colorful Picasso exhibitions at the Gagosian galleries recently, Picasso’s work is amazing in any color. The white spiral gallery at the Guggenheim […]

Apartment with Art

06 . 25 . 12

I’m a bit under the weather and preparing for a magazine photo shoot in my apartment on Thursday.  Good times.  But this apartment full of amazing art featured on APT by LSD on Vogue.com today made me feel a little better.  It’s owned by Kyle DeWoody whose mother is uber major art collector Beth Rudin […]

Gallery Guide

05 . 04 . 12

There are so many amazing art exhibitions and events beginning this weekend that it feels like Christmas all over again.  Yesterday, I popped into the Gagosian Gallery on Madison Avenue to see the gorgeous Picasso and Françoise Gilot: Paris–Vallauris 1943–1953 exhibition.  This is the fourth Picasso show at Gagosian and the first uptown which was […]

Hable at Hickory Chair

04 . 30 . 12

The best part of High Point is getting to meet many of the designers in person.  Sisters Susan Hable Smith and Katherine Hable Sweeney of Hable Construction have collaborated on a fabric line for Hickory Chair and created a little artist’s studio in the showroom. Not only do I love their fabric designers but their […]

Long time readers will remember my affinity for the work of artist James Nares.  I first wrote about him in 2007 and again last year.  So when Coach asked if I would like to visit his studio and see the new limited edition bags he designed for them, I immediately asked when and where. I’ve […]

Sometimes I wish we could discuss artists or anyone for that matter without having to mention their gender. In the case of photographer Cindy Sherman, being a woman is an integral part of her work and therefore, cannot be ignored. Just opened at The Museum of Modern Art is a new exhibit, Cindy Sherman, which […]

Over the holidays, my friend Jessica and I visited an amazing exhibition organized by the Marlborough Gallery downtown in the old Mercantile Exchange building. Le Cabinet de Curiosités, is a show conceived and curated by Thierry Despont, where “contemporary art converges with 18th- and 19th-century antiquities in a setting that blurs the confines of time and […]

I apologize for the lack of post yesterday.  Today for those of you who subscribe.  I started a post and then the day got away from me.  I was going to finish it this morning but then accidentally deleted the photos in the post.  While I work on redoing that one, I leave you with […]

New Apartment Pics

07 . 28 . 11

It’s been challenging to say the least to work on decorating my apartment while keeping up with all my other work projects.  That’s definitely why only one side is finished or maybe I should say mostly finished.  I am sure I will make more changes and move things around as I continue around the room. […]

Artist Edwin Parker “Cy” Twombly passed away Tuesday at the age of 83 in Rome.  I feel like people either loved or hated his work.  While some people saw beauty in his compositions, other saw childish scribbles.  I personally loved his work and meeting him in Rome was on high my bucket list for life experiences. As […]

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, I suggest heading over to the Gagosian Gallery to see the new Picasso exhibition, Picasso and Marie-Thérèse: L’Amour Fou.  When Picasso saw the beautiful and blonde Marie-Thérèse Walter outside the Galeries Lafayette department store in Paris in 1927, he told her, “You have an interesting […]

I am still editing all my photos from High Point but decided to take a break today.  While catching up on my favorite websites, I was excited to read on Vogue.com that there is a book about to be released about my favorite artist Joan Mitchell. While I absolutely love Joan Mitchell’s abstract paintings, I […]

I wrote about artist James Nares shortly after a began my blog which was almost three and a half years ago.  Since then, his work has shown up in many more publications.  I love seeing how great his flowing calligraphy brush stroke art looks in such a variety of interiors.  What’s even more interesting is […]

The calendar says spring but the temperature says winter. Makes me wish I had a conservatory like Alexis and Trevor Traina in San Francisco. Vogue featured the home in the December 2009 issue and just posted some party pics online today.  It was fun to see the dining room set for a chic lunch to celebrate the new […]
