ARTmonday: Judyth Honeycutt Katz at Berta Walker Gallery

Friday night we went to the opening of a group show at the Berta Walker Gallery in Provincetown. My mother-in-law, Judyth Honeycutt Katz, had 11 pieces hanging in the show. Like last year, they hung alongside some of the best artists in Provincetown— Robert Henry, Salvatore Del Deo and Romolo Del Deo. Berta Walker represents some of the best known artists on the Outer Cape, including Paul Resika, Selina Trieff, and Elspeth Halvorsen, Penelope Jencks, Sky Power, and Varujan Boghosian. She always has a few treasures by Hans Hoffman too. The exhibition runs through August 11, so stop by if you’re in Provincetown. This is Judy’s second show; I blogged about the Berta Walker opening last year here.

Judy has masses of amazing work. I should dig through her studio. I spent the last week sleeping in the same building, but alas I was too busy being on vacation. Here are a few photos I took last year, of her pieces that hang in my apartment and her own house.


This large wild landscape hangs in my living room in Boston.


Judy just gave this one to my husband to hang at the office.


This is my in-law’s living room on the Cape.
I think all three paintings are from a trip to the Southwest.
Better shots of each below.

The next two are hanging in their house in Connecticut.
I think they were done during an excursion to Alaska.



ARTmonday: Pablo Manga

I first blogged about Pablo Manga two years ago when I discovered his work at Farm Gallery in Wellfleet. Working with many colors of semi-transparent tape that he layers on sanded wood panels prepared with gesso, this Oakland-based, Berkeley-trained lawyer (!) turned artist creates compelling slashes of color and monochromatic stillness. Gone are the horizontal rays of 2010. Last year he moved into diagonal plaids. His show, “Bold As Love” opened at Farm this weekend.

When my husband and I  purchased Pablo’s work two summers ago, we propped it on on the dining room sideboard in Truro.  We recently hung it in our Boston living room, alongside a similarly colored wild landscape  by my mother-in-law. The area has since been littered with all sorts of other art distractions, which I plan to pare down this fall. (That tends to be the resting place for most of our art without a permanent home.)
