by
9/12/14 Posted 9/12/14

Miyako Aoki, Adel Gorgy, Marsha Solomon at Able Fine Art NY Gallery, Seoul, Korea September 10th - September 23rd
Posted 9/11/14

Reverberations: Contemporary Abstractions on view at Able Fine Art NY Gallery in Seoul presents the work of three accomplished international artists.

Posted 9/8/14

Word of Scottish artist Katie Paterson’s Future Library made the rounds this summer when the artist launched her 100-year-long project to build a library literally from the forest floor up. Future Library is back in the news again after it was announced this week that the first author to contribute a new work to the library will be none other than Man Booker Prize winner Margaret Atwood.
