22 Art Books For Summer Reading
Who says you have to outgrow picture books? Visual art is full of rich subject matter for literature, and artists themselves have served as muses (and authors) for the books below — their personalities, their subjects, their lives, and the process of artmaking. Because it’s that time of year, we’ve gathered 22 titles you can load into your suitcase, or on your Kindle, for your summer reading. (And yes, some of them have pictures.) Books by artists The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait by Frida Kahlo The artist: painter Frida Kahlo, Mexico… ... Read More

Mind of the Artist, Part XI: Linda Norton
Sometimes it takes a little re-prioritizing to return us to our authentic selves–which, so much of the time, has to do with filling up our creative wells and reminding ourselves that we are artists.  Now, not all of us will spend our lives designing, creating, and making, but let Linda’s story be an inspiration that we can always return to what makes us creatively alive.  Her extraordinary story, in her own words: Much of my life has centered on art in one form or another. My father made a small… ... Read More

Two Smithsonian Pastel Workshops
Weekend before last, I attended two all-day workshops–Pastel Portraits and The Still-Life in Pastel–sponsored by Smithsonian Associates at the Dillon Ripley Center.  Both were taught by Gary Shankman, head of the Fine Arts Department at Sage College of Albany. At both workshops, he began with a short instructional lecture, showed slides of both student and masterworks to illustrate approaches and techniques, and gave a very brief demonstration. Then we spent the remainder of the day working on a single pastel as he circled the room with individual advice… ... Read More

Take A Juror’s Tour of the “Not A Box” Installations
This guest post was written by Alex Paik, an installation artist and the juror for “Not a Box.” I enjoyed looking through the submissions and was happy to see that many artists were trying new things in their studio practice for this exhibition. The work that stood out to me often involved interesting uses of material as well as an awareness of how the work could interact in the physical space of the gallery. The work that was selected often felt like it had a story to tell through the… ... Read More
