ARTmonday: 15 Views of America

It’s a long weekend at our house with everybody off for Columbus Day. Not that it’s identified as such, with Columbus now recognized as the savage man he was. Rather, our schools tend to label this national holiday as “fall break.” Works for me. History and politics aside, it’s nevertheless appropriate to look at some scenes of our country, views of America. Here are 15 American landscapes.

ARTmonday: The Armory Show 2013 (Part I)

Last week I got an email from The Armory Show announcing its partnership with Artsy. Oddly, I haven’t really explored the site before. I haven’t quite yet either (will revisit with a post on Artsy very soon), because I was preoccupied with browsing the 2400+ works that will be exhibited at The Armory Show 2013 in New York City, March 7 – 10.

The works are predominantly by established and iconic artists, though I also discovered a number I wasn’t personally familiar with, and a few that were even affordable. (Not all list prices, but there’s an “inquire” button if you’re so inclined.) I found 40 pieces on Artsy from The Armory Show that I really liked, keeping in mind a mix of medium and era. (My absolute favorite, love, love, love, is Gary Hume’s “The Beach.” It’s probably tens of thousands… afraid to check.)  Here’s the first batch. More later. I’ll also go back add in the medium of each. Off to an appointment now. . .
