food for the soul
A few things to inspire, intrigue, and interest:
*An exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum ~ Passing Time: The Art of William Christenberry, through 8 July 2007. Curated by the artist, the exhibition examines the inevitable passage of time through photographs, sculptures, paintings and works on paper.
*At Knoedler Gallery in New York, Magical Means: Milton Avery and Watercolor, 3 May - 10 August 2007. A collection of almost forty watercolors from the artist's family, many of which have never been exhibited before. A quiet and lovely show.
*And an interesting exhibition of work by Tom Molloy, and Irish artist who takes a look at American life and culture, at the Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin, Texas, 11 May - 23 June 2007. I just received an announcement for the show in the mail, so I checked out the gallery online ~ fantastic website and a really intriguing roster of artists!
