ARTmonday: Miniatures at the Cambridge Art Association (A Juried Show by StyleCarrot)

I really hope you can make it to see the “Miniatures” show at the Cambridge Art Association before it closes on Saturday. Not just because there are many wonderful (and very affordable) little works, but because I juried it!

I was thrilled when artist Cory Shea, who is Cambridge Art Association‘s associate director, asked me to be a jury of one for the small works show this spring. I first met Cory over coffee to a ask her about showing her photos at the Art + Cocktails pop-up gallery I put together in Truro last summer. (I had seen Cory’s work at the MassArt auction earlier that year and fell in love.)

I had such a good time choosing the pieces. When I came in, Erin Becker, CAA’s esteemed director and Cory had the 150 pieces laid out and waiting. The process was blind, so I didn’t know the artists’ names, though I admittedly recognized a few. I chose about 60 or so, and later that week Cory hung them. Beautifully. It was a really fun process, and I hope I’ll have the opportunity to do something like this again.

Many of the pieces I’d love to bring home. (As Cory knew when she asked me to jury the show, I have a weakness for small works.) I purchased Hilary Tait Norod’s triptych that morning, and yesterday when my husband went to see the show he bought Giacometti’s Giraffe.

Please stop in if you have a few minutes and let me know what you think. You can follow CAA on Instagram @cambridgeart and my art feed @stylecarrotcurates.

ARTmonday: 15 Pieces from Restoration Hardware’s Contemporary Art Gallery

A couple of  years ago Restoration Hardware opened a 28,000-square foot gallery, complete with roof garden in the Meatpacking District in New York. In August ArtNet reported that the gallery would close. While the brick & mortar venture was short-lived, the online outpost remains. 

Restoration Hardware’s Contemporary Art Gallery offers what seem to be the same pieces that were on display in real life. ArtNet dismisses the artwork as mostly painting that “leans heavily toward decorative, easy-on-the-eyes abstraction.” I don’t care what they say. . . Maybe the artists won’t wind up at the Whitney (or maybe some will); I  like them. No need to be snobby. 

Here is a sampling of 15 pieces from  Restoration Hardware’s Contemporary Art Gallery online. There are videos online too if you’re particularly interested in any of the artists, most of whom are from cities scattered throughout Europe.
