ARTmonday: Installation Photos of Webster & Company Artwork

Ok, this is the last post on the #WebsterArtProject. Last Tuesday was the opening party and it was a huge success. If you don’t know the background, thanks to interior designer Dee Elms of Terrat Elms who suggested me for the project, Mr. Webster and I collaborated on this project at his showroom.

I picked the artists (most of them are New England artists) and presented available pieces to Mr. Webster, and then he, along with his Visual Design Director Jonathan Giacoletto, chose exactly which ones to feature and where to hang them.  We started the last week of August 2015 and by the end of September most of the pieces were installed.

Several pieces have sold since the start, and many more went out for trials in clients’ homes this past week. There are even some commissions brewing. I am so thrilled as are the artists. If you look to the top of this web page, you’ll see I’ve created a new tab—Webster Art Project. There you will find every piece I curated for the exhibition along with sizing. If you are interested in pricing you can email me at stylecarrot@gmail.com

You can follow @StyleCarrot on Instagram and the hashtag #WebsterArtProject along with #StyleCarrotCurates. In addition to the Webster pics, there are shots from the art I curated for the model apartment Troy Boston, visits to museums and art sales, artwork at friends and families’ homes, and of course the art in my own house. You’ll also find the artists’ feeds so you can follow them too.

Since not everyone can trek over to the Boston Design Center, here is a sampling of pieces in situ at Webster & Company.

ARTmonday: New England Artists at Webster & Company

This fall I’ve had the opportunity to work on a wonderful new project: curating artwork for the Webster & Company showroom at the Boston Design Center.

I love art. I buy art like other women buy shoes. I have master’s in art history that I did for fun and I started collecting art around the same time.  Friends have asked me for help choosing artwork, and over the years I’ve often thought of art consulting for interior designers.

This summer I was at the bar at Blackfish in  Truro with my friend Dee Elms,who encouraged me. (If  you don’t know her, she  is a very talented, supremely generous Boston-based interior designer). A week later I got an email from Mr. Webster at Webster & Company, asking me if I’d be interested in helping find local Boston artists whose work he could hang in his showroom. (A little birdie suggested me.) He was looking to do a complete swap of everything he had hanging. Within a month.

In a frenzy, I scoured my files and sources for Boston artists (and some further afield in Maine and on the Cape) whose work I loved that aligned with Mr. Webster’s tastes. We met in early September, narrowed down my finds, and over the last few weeks the very gracious Mr. Webster and his meticulous visual design director Jonathan Giacoletto have hung the work. There are about 75 pieces from almost 20 artists, all either local or with ties to the area.

It’s been a thrilling experience, both working with Mr. Webster and his team and all the artists. I haven’t seen everything hung yet, but I plan to go this week. If you happen to be over there, stop by. (Obviously they’re all for sale. If you you’re interested, you can  let me know.) Here is one piece from each artist represented. If you read ARTmonday regularly you will recognize some names. More photos to come of the installations in the coming weeks.

ARTmonday: Sarah Lutz’s Marine Inspired Artwork

My mother-in-law introduced me to the fanciful marine-inspired art of New York City artist Sarah Lutz when over Thanksgiving 2012 she brought me to the the Miranda Arts Project Space to see the installation Interplay, a collaborative work by Beth Dary and Sarah Lutz. This marine-inspired art installation mapped out the sea levels of Port Chester, New York waterways—past, present, and future—using sculpture, painting, drawing, and collage. I loved it; the overall concept and look, and the close-in details. (You can see my blog post about it here.)

I’ve since met Sarah Lutz on the Cape, where she spends summers, and have been tempted by her pieces at Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill. Her current exhibition Tales from the Garden . . . And Other Mythologies is currently on display the Mercy Gallery at the Loomis Chaffee School, where Lutz is an alum. The scale of the pieces is much larger, thanks to the freedom she found in her new, larger studio. 

Here is a mix of work Sarah Lutz’s show at Loomis Chaffee, as well as the marine-inspired art of hers displayed in my living room.

ARTmonday: Interplay by Beth Dary + Sarah Lutz

On Friday, instead of participating in the shopping frenzy, my mother-in-law and I visited Miranda Arts Project Space, a gallery/studio in Port Chester, NY to see the current installation, Interplay. It’s a collaborative work by artists Beth Dary and Sarah Lutz. The installation maps out the sea levels of Port Chester waterways—past, present, and future—using sculpture, painting, drawing, and collage. I loved it. The overall concept and look, and the close-in details.
