ARTmonday: 8 Artworks from The Road Gallery

I had a social day on Friday, meeting a new friend for coffee in the morning and architect Mette Aamodt of Cambridge-based modern architecture firm Aamodt/Plumb (I wrote about their transformation of a mid-century barn for Boston Globe Magazine last summer) for lunch at Tatte Bakery in Beacon Hill.

(In between I happened to run into a friend and we stopped into two of my favorite Boston boutiques Good and December Thieves. A few Instagram photos here.)

Currently Mette and her partner (and husband) Andrew are working on a project for the founder/curator behind online gallery The Road Gallery. I hadn’t been familiar with The Road Gallery, but upon returning home promptly looked it up. I loved it and must share.

The Road Gallery represents a small, highly curated selection of emerging and established but lesser known contemporary artists. There are a handful of artworks by each artist, plus guest artists, and pieces start around $100 and go up to $7,000.

Here is abstract artwork by eight artists from The Road Gallery, and a little bit about them.

Artist Liz Barber's Abstract Paintings at The Road Gallery

Liz Barber  •  Summer 8, 2015
Mixed media on panel
Atlanta-based artist Liz Barber, who holds 
a degree from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, grew up in coastal Massachusetts. She paints watery abstract works on which layers of materials are built up to create depth and movement, and reflect her emotional attachment to the ocean. 

Artist Kelly Neidig's Abstract Landscape Paintings at The Road Gallery

Kelly Neidig  •  Braddock, 2014
Flashe on canvas

Artist Kelly Neidig, who was born in Pittsburgh and studied Landscape Architecture and Integrative Arts at Pennsylvania State University, lives and works in Vancouver, Washington. In the studio, Neidig relies on her memory and imagination to reinvent scenes of places she has traveled to show the experience of time and its effect on the memory. She is more interested in the overall feeling of these places than their details.

Artist Kyle Utter's Interior Oil Paintings at The Road Gallery

Kyle Utter  •  The Captain, 2013
 Oil on canvas

Brooklyn-based figurative painter Kyle Utter, who hails from Michigan and once lived in Montana, earned his B.F.A at the Pratt Institute in 2011. Utter paints personal spaces, imbuing them with human needs, desires, and yearnings.

Artist Haylee Anne's Water Paintings at The Road Gallery

Haylee Anne  •  Mademoiselle Deux, 2011
Digital Archival C-Print (Limited edition of 5 per size)

Photographer Haylee Anne, who travels between Atlanta and New York, was inspired at an early age by lush National Geographic landscapes. She photographs women and water, employing special processes, to enhance and support feminist and bodily dialogue. 

Artist Susan Klein's Layered Landscape Paintings at The Road Gallery

Susan Klein  •  Peering Through, 2013
Oil on Panel

Charleston, South Carolina-based artist Susan Klein earned an M.F.A. in 2004 from the University of Oregon and a B.F.A. from the University of New Hampshire in 2001. Her paintings combine elements from separate places and times into one image. Usually, she begins with a landscape painting, upon which she layers representations of architecture, nature, and urban materials, which coalesce into a dense visual obstacle course.

Artist Emily Zuch's Paintings of Interior Installations at The Road Gallery

Emily Zuch  •  Garden of Boxes and Balls, 2011
Oil on paper

Brooklyn-based artist Emily Zuch received an M.F.A. from the New York Studio School in 2011 and a B.F.A. from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2008. Zuch paints from installations she creates in her studio. The set-ups involve objects she makes, childhood toys or those she has recently acquired, and various other curiosities. There is an element of narrative in her work, and she is interested in imagery that connects to fantasy and folklore. 

road-gallery-s-w-dinge

S.W. Dinge  •  Hit My Head on the Ice, 2014
Gouache and watercolor on canvas

Artist S.W. Dinge lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island.  He is drawn to aged materials such as rusted metal, discolored newspaper, weathered wood, and other aged objects which are, along with acrylic paint, the foundation of his work.  

Artist Charlotte Lethbridge's Pool Paintings at The Road Gallery

Charlotte Lethbridge  •  Sorry I’m Late (Go Ahead Without Me), 2014
Oil on linen

Manhattan-based artist Charlotte Lethbridge studied painting at The School of Visual Arts in New York City. In 2014, Lethbridge concentrated on a swimming pool series titled “Sorry I’m Late.” While pools evoke nostalgia of swimming lessons and suburban summers, left alone they have a compelling stillness. Absence is key component of the series.

ARTmonday: Intaglio Prints by Vani Sayeed

I’ve worked with a lot of interior designers as a writer, and my I’m lucky because my experiences have been 99 percent excellent.

One of the loveliest interior designers in Boston is Newton-based Vani Sayeed. She has such a nice. kind, way about her while at the same time is always absolutely professional. And I’m not just saying that because she brought me back this gorgeous scarf from India.

I wrote about this summer home she designed on the Vineyard for Boston Globe Magazine last summer, and more recently she contributed to this decor trends forecast for the Matouk Linens blog. Vani is also an artist. I just discovered these intaglio prints on her site so thought I’d share.

ARTmonday: 12 Masquerade-Themed Artworks

I’ve never been to a true masquerade ball. The closest I came is a school fundraising auction I chaired with a Carnivale theme. I have a cute photo of myself and my friend/co-chair, artist Lee Essex Doyle (you can see her Venetian interiors here), but I can’t find it right now. She invited me to a Save Venice masquerade ball, but we skipped it. Oh well, there went my chance.

I started noticing a lot of photography featuring people with elaborate rubber animal masks, which I’ve been putting aside for a later post. As I collected those, all masked figures made their way into my folder. So I’ve pulled out a dozen masquerade-themed artworks, including, a simple linocut of a mask sold on Serena & Lily; a woman masked in sawdust (not quite masquerade-worthy, but you know how I love what I’ve come to call obscured portraits); mod photos that appeared in the New York Times in the 1960s and brought to light by Jonathan Adler; a fashion shot of Kate Moss.; and others.

Enjoy these 12 masquerade themed artworks; perhaps you’ll find inspiration for your own year-end celebration.
