Photo: Artchick1   First night viewing Work Of Art 

I was invited to a Viewing Party at the studio of one of the contestants on the Bravo Tv new program called Work of Art.   We had a great deal of fun commenting on the broadcast amongst ourselves.  Of course, the Artist contestant, Judith Braun, already new the outcome of the contest winner but was prohibited from the big reveal by a legal gag order  contract of sorts.

Program Work of Art to continue for 8 weeks during the summer months.  Casting is now beginning for Season 2, which I personally think will be set in LA this time around.

ART AS A METAPHOR FOR MEMORY

http://ArtChick1.blogspot.com



photo/artchick1     Artist: Lori Feld "The Sky Is Falling"



"...I especially explore and visualize the concept of 'the other'. These paintings and drawings are deliberately intimate, while containing fetishistic figures that are emotionally confrontational and exaggerated in their 'otherness'..." says LORI FELD, artist, "The Sky is Falling" exhibition at the Claire Oliver Gallery in Chelsea.
These works are mixed media paintings that incorporate colored pencil drawings on rice paper or hand-colored one of a kind prints with additional collage, thread, encaustic, beeswax, lace, charmingly imbued with no lack of inspiration and endearing imagination.
 "Having deciphered some of the imagery, the symbolism remains far more felt than understood, more disquieting than soothing" 
A mystical replication of an 'other world' awaits you for the viewing.

DALE CHIHULY: BLOWN GLASS AS A VEHICLE FOR SCULPTURE

http://ArtChick1.blogspot.com

Artist: Dale Chihuly - photo: Marlborough Gallery

I remember the first time I saw an exhibition of this artist's work way back in the day when SOHO was the art world capital in NYC.  How wonderful, I thought, this glass, this glowing glass sculpture back lit in a dark gallery. Exquisite!
Dale Chihuly, who was born in Tacoma, Washington in 1941, has become an internationally celebrated personality in contemporary art and design whose prominence in the field of contemporary studio glass is unmatched. He is a generous and charismatic individual with a forceful personality, who ceaselessly promotes himself and his material—glass—to audiences around the world. He has championed the use of blown glass as a vehicle for sculpture, focusing on the vessel in his explorations of color and form.           
An exciting exhibition of his work opens at the Marlborough Gallery in Chelsea, 545 W 25th Street, on September 16th, 6-8PM and continues through October 16th.
This is a remarkable installation at the Marlborough Gallery, Chelsea, one that you too will remember.
