ARTmonday: Emerging Female Artists at Collective 131

Last week the founder/director of Collective 131, Cassandra Fiorenza, emailed me to tell me about this online art gallery, which exclusively features emerging female artists. I was excited to see that an artist I’ve worked with in the past, Patricia Spergel, is represented here.

Fiorenza launched Collective 131 in 2018. In addition to its online platform, exhibits at SPRING/BREAK Art Show, the Affordable Art Fair, and Superfine! Art Fair.  The site offers artwork for sale, and also pulls together exhibitions.

The current online exhibition, “Personal Space” features art created during the last few months during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pieces have been hung in a virtual exhibition space that you can move through with your mouse/keyboard, so definitely check it out.

I pulled 10 paintings and works on paper from the new arrivals section of Collective 131, all of which are all for sale. You can click through for pricing, which is reasonable. I’ve purchased several pieces of art from various other initiatives during this time, which I’ll post on my Instagram account @StyleCarrotCurates when they arrive.

Fine Print: Robert Stilin Interiors

I just realized I never posted images from this interior design book published by Vendome Press last year—Robert Stilin Interiors . The book, written by Mayer Rus, is New York- and Hamptons-based designer, Robert Stilin’s first. It features 15 projects photographed by Stephen Kent Johnson.

There are apartments and townhouses in the city along with beach and country houses in his soulful yet tailored style with strong, clean lines and primarily neutral palettes that still seem to include color. I love his artwork choices and the vintage furniture he incorporates.

Here’s a sampling of six rooms in the book, along with the cover:

The flowers on Cape Cod are finally blooming! This one is from last week. Not from my yard, because I don’t do red, but they’re pretty spectacular, and basically get lost against the Sarah Lutz painting.
