ARTmonday: Connecticut Collection

I spent a few days in Connecticut before fleeing the Northeast for sunny South Florida. As I may have mentioned before, my in-laws have all sorts of wonderful artwork. I took a bunch of Instagram shots of their collection. Many Cape Cod/NYC artists, who are also longtime family friends, are represented, including Budd Hopkins, Paul Resika, Selina Treif, Joan Miller, and Sidney Simon, as well as my husband’s great, great grandmother, Ina Whitney, whom I didn’t even realize was a painter.  I’ve also included a piece by James Rosenberg, which was their very first piece of art, given to them by my husband’s grandparents, and painted the year they were married. Here are the highlights of the artwork that is hanging in their home at the moment.

ARTmonday: Judyth Honeycutt Katz at Berta Walker Gallery

Friday night we went to the opening of a group show at the Berta Walker Gallery in Provincetown. My mother-in-law, Judyth Honeycutt Katz, had 11 pieces hanging in the show. Like last year, they hung alongside some of the best artists in Provincetown— Robert Henry, Salvatore Del Deo and Romolo Del Deo. Berta Walker represents some of the best known artists on the Outer Cape, including Paul Resika, Selina Trieff, and Elspeth Halvorsen, Penelope Jencks, Sky Power, and Varujan Boghosian. She always has a few treasures by Hans Hoffman too. The exhibition runs through August 11, so stop by if you’re in Provincetown. This is Judy’s second show; I blogged about the Berta Walker opening last year here.

Judy has masses of amazing work. I should dig through her studio. I spent the last week sleeping in the same building, but alas I was too busy being on vacation. Here are a few photos I took last year, of her pieces that hang in my apartment and her own house.

This large wild landscape hangs in my living room in Boston.

Judy just gave this one to my husband to hang at the office.

This is my in-law’s living room on the Cape.
I think all three paintings are from a trip to the Southwest.
Better shots of each below.

The next two are hanging in their house in Connecticut.
I think they were done during an excursion to Alaska.
