Ulluh and gem at BORH

Leave a comment

Eli (aka ulluh) is doing an art show at the Barns of Rose Hill in Berryville opening May 28 and running through July 1st.  On the 1st, I will be giving a talk about Machine Learning Security at the same venue (for the art show closing).

Tickets are required for the BIML talk.


The opening does not require tickets and is scheduled for May 28th 6-8pm.

Megan Caldwell and Everyone Else at Longbranch

Leave a comment

 

For a long time now, the only painting by Megan Caldwell in the collection has been this little painting on a tiny block of wood in the kitchen.  We fixed that.

Sad to miss the opening due to Indiana, though we got a preview of the show before everyone invaded.  What a fantastic collection of work, not just Megan’s but also great stuff from Winslow McCagg, Anna Billman (whose photography is excellent) and Leigh Henry.

So now we have some Megan in the house.  Or we will.  Or something.

This one depicts a local stretch of the river very close to home.

The artist and the mini artist

 

A whole nother artist

Same spot, different time of day.

Because Eli and Romey insisted, the upper left painting now belongs to me. The water is magical.

This is a study for the painting I purchased. Had to get it too.

Winslow and Anna’s work was in another room.  The pairings were perfect.  An incredibly well-designed show.

Nice to see such great work at Longbranch.  Clarke County’s art scene is top notch.  (The show will be up through May 8, 2022.)

 

 

A Little Island Off the Big Island

The Little Island is new NY close to the Whitney and the High Line.  Have a visit.

Which do you choose? NY? Or NJ? We’ll take them together.

The band. Naming rights remain unsold. Contact us for details.

 

 

This coat on Lisa caused the biggest splash in NY fashion.

 

Picasso Perfection at the Phillips Collection

Leave a comment

The Phillips Collection remains one of my favorite art museums.  The incredible level of curation at the new Picasso exhibit shows why.  Great combinations in addition to world class art.  Top notch.

For those who know their picasso, this is early stuff, basically 1901-1904 (including the blue period).

We went to the show as a last birthday present of the 38th year.  Thanks Romey. What an excellent present, art with the ones you love.

PICASSO

 

 

NOT PICASSO

 

 

My favorite painting at the Phillips.

In a new spot.

After art, we were hoping to have brunch at the Bistrot Du Coin, but once again the google hours were wrong.  Fortunately, there was La Tomate to fill in admirably.  We had lots of cacio et pepe.  Ahhhh.

Man Ray RVA: Such Gossip

The Man Ray exhibit in Richmond is well worth a visit, especially when you surround yourself with friends.  Romey set up this visit to the VMFA with Stan.  Gorgeous pictures, interesting technique, and oh the gossip!

There were the famous.

First was an absolutely disturbing and shocking video and art set by Paul McCarthy.  Shock art.  You can read about the psychopathic exhibit above.  The film was just disturbing.

All that required some clearing of the head with Munch and older sedate art.

Only an Expert: Laurie Anderson, The Weather

Leave a comment

Very Small Laurie Anderson

Oh boy, oh boy did we want to go to this one the second we heard about it.  Laurie Anderson has overtaken the second floor at the Hirshhorn with an installation that is a bit of a retrospective and a living piece of art at the same time at the same time art at the same time living piece of art at the same time.

Just go.  I mean, you’ve been already right?

The Hirshhorn is under construction.  Just like the exhibit.

So lets go see…  But before we start, I just have to mention in passing that my artistic son was psyched to see the exhibit spontaneously well before I did (beat dad by two weeks in fact), but failed to connect the art he was experiencing to Laurie Anderson’s music (especially Big Science which he has heard a zillion times).  I think hooking in some of the great music would be a treat.

I guess this counts. Kinda. Only an expert drum machine.

Flags in unison, except for one flag that was on strike or experiencing technical difficulties, or maybe it is just an iconoclast.

 

The striking flag. You can tell it is a communist since it is red.

 

This picture makes the song play in my head.

Anyway, here.  This song was only alluded to through text in the exhibit.  Have a listen.

This picture will play the song in your head, through your earholes.

Then there was the crow room (actually probably a raven, but I am calling it a crow anyway).  For me, this is all about Emily Shepardson.  I think Laurie owes Emily some royalties.  Or maybe just a make up concert in the living room.

This room is striking, fun, quirky, disturbing, and classic overload all at the same time same time all at the same time classic overload all at the same time.

Did I mention that my dear friend Spool was along?

 

The golden canoe looks as seaworthy as some of its NH counterparts

 

A picture for emily of a picture of the picture, but not this picture, the one IN this picture.

 

 

Color!

Kind of a shock after all of that black and white. Big paintings.

 

Color too!

 

The tape loop violins

 

Then it was back to Fall in the beautiful gardens next door.

My art compatriots

 

I mean who gets to see art like this with two beautiful women? Oh, its me.

 

Fin.

 

Tia Maggio Rides Again

Leave a comment

In the first post-pandemic (that is, fully vaccinated) art opening, we were psyched to see some pastel and pencil by Tia Maggio.  No longer local, Tia lives in Massachusetts.  Much of her current work is inspired by views to be found near her home.

The work was displayed at Youngblood Gallery in The Plains, Virginia.

This one is now in the permanent collection

 

Interesting displays under glass

 

The far right pastel is from the same series as one of the ones we purchased

 

 

Most of the Tia’s we have are in pastel.  Pencil is a new medium for us.  Same color palette, but finer lines and more space.

Invocation of winter

 

Invocation of Spring

 

We also purchased the upper right piece shown here

 

This one is also in the permanent collection now. One day it will be framed.
