ARTmonday: 12 Artworks from UGallery

I posted about UGallery back in January 2013 (28 Photographs from UGallery), when they asked me to curate a collection on the UGallery Pinterest boards. They’ve invited me to be  a UGallery Guest Curator again, which of course I was more than happy to do. Any excuse to Pin as “work.”

True to my fascination (obsession?) with the portrayal of women in art, my recent effort, which can be found on Pinterest and UGallery’s site, is a simple but robust collection of 60 images of women. You may recognize some images as one’s I’ve featured before (sorry, they speak to me, long term), as well as new pieces by artists whose work I’ve featured. There are certainly new ones too.

To go along with my UGallery Guest Curator collection, I’ve pulled together a variety of 12 artworks from UGallery today, including landscapes, abstracts, still lifes, in acrylic, oil, and photography. If you love any, click through and investigate. UGallery prices are quite reasonable and they frame too. I’m about to order one for myself. I’ll show you when it arrives.

ARTmonday: Meg Lipke’s Colorful Abstracts

I’m not sure where I discovered artist Meg Lipke, probably Pinterest. Wherever it was, her paintings interested me enough to click through and download a bunch, saved for a rainy day. My son informs me that today will be the only nice day of the week in Boston, but I’m hoping the bright colors and vibrant brushstrokes keep me going for the next few days.

Meg Lipke  was born in 1969 in Portland, Oregon and was raised in Burlington, Vermont and Cheshire, England. She went to the University of Vermont for undergrad and earned her MFA at  Cornell. She currently lives and works in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.

On her website, she divides her pieces into a few groups, including Paper Tapestries, Small Weavings, Works on Paper, and Batik Paintings. Here is a sampling of the Meg Lipke’s abstract artwork.

ARTmonday: Sally King Benedict Abstact Paintings

I discovered the abstract paintings of Atlanta artist Sally King Benedict last month from a pin on interior designer Angie Hranowskey’s “Abstract” board.  I love the bold and cheerful colors, shapes, and compositions. Many of these are already sold; I’m hoping she’s at work on a new series.
