ARTmonday: Winter Works Show at Bromfield Gallery

Over the weekend I went to First Friday in SoWa, an arts district in Boston.  Mainly I went to meet Sydney Licht, who was in town for her solo show “Canned and Contained,” beautiful contemporary still life paintings at Chase Young Gallery, a top Boston art gallery.  The works are wonderful, and  gallery co-owner Sarah Young is so lovely.

I wandered through a number of other galleries, including Bromfield Gallery which has a very appealing (and crowded) exhibition called Winter Works. It’s a  juried show with lots of small pieces by many artists, all priced from $100 to $1,000. (There are many affordable artworks here.) There were several I was very tempted to purchase, and I may go back for at least one. These are perfect holiday gifts. All the pieces are worth a look and there are enough styles ad mediums (abstract & still life, collage & encaustic) to suit many different types.

Here are 32 artworks from Boston art gallery Bromfield Gallery’s Winter Works show.

ARTmonday: 20 Artworks from Artsy

Artsy is easily among my favorite art sites. Not just for buying (some pieces are not actually for sale, though there are 10,000+ that are), it describes itself as an online platform for discovering, discussing, and collecting art.  Artys’s collection boasts 30,000+ artworks by 6,000+ artists, sourced from top galleries, museums, private collections, foundations, and artists’ estates. The idea is to foster new generations of art lovers, museum-goers, collectors, and patrons. I’m all for that.

Artsy is powered by The Art Genome Project, which  is an ongoing study to map the characteristics (known as ‘genes’) that connect artists and artworks globally. It’s an interesting concept which perhaps deserves its own blog post. Here’s the idea: There are over 500 genes including art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities. For instance, Artsy might connect Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst via the Pop Culture gene, or Ai Weiwei with Botticelli via the Metaphor/Allegory gene.

Based in downtown NYC (of course), the site’s leaders are Carter Cleveland, a computer science engineer from Princeton University and Sebastian Cwilich, a former executive at Christie’s. In addition to inquiring about purchasing works, users can contact Artsy specialists to discuss works and help you form a collection at no charge. I chose 20 pieces to show you today,

ARTmonday: 25 Mountains + Icebergs

I’ve been sorting though my  art b0ard on Pinterest because it is overflowing with over 1300 pins. I already have separate boards for abstracts, sculptures & installations, nudes (though I need to pull this down because I keep getting warnings), female figures, and photography, but now I need to subcategorize even more, so I’ve created landscapes, and will probably move on to still lives and portraits. I’ve noticed I have an abundance of contemporary artwork, especially illustration, picturing mountains and icebergs. This is hardly a surprise, given the current craze for all things “geo” (triangles, facets, polyhedrosn,etc.). They’re appealing, and season appropriate, so here you go.
