Here’s where I am now — getting close to finishing organizing my art stuff!
A lot of thought goes into setting up your studio. So far, I’ve laid down a floor cloth (hand painting/stenciling with chalk paint in progress) to catch paint messes, set up my standing easel, and figured out the best place for my table (where I’ll be drawing and making hand-made prints). Outside my windows is a lovely view of a farm with many cows out to pasture, the Tassajara Hills and directly behind them, Mount Diablo.
Distress #1 and Distress #2: the yellow version is done in watercolor and ink and the other is a carborundum print. They are my first works for 2018. Happy New Year!
What does it mean when a corporation owns an artist’s legacy? One artist’s multiyear project, “The Proposal,” examines this question about the legacy of the Pritzker Prize–winning Mexican architect Luis Barragán.
To learn more, watch artist Jill Magid as she talks about her ongoing project, “The Proposal” in this 12-minute video.
Works from over 200 different places have been brought together in one exhibition; Michelangelo’s drawings are a must see. This exhibition will not be traveling so if you are in New York while it is on, do go see it!! (The exhibition begins tomorrow, November 13, 2017, and continues until February 12, 2018).
