Three Scenes from the Beyeler Foundation&rdquo; from the series &ldquo;World Museum Masterpieces at the Hermitage,&rdquo; prepared by the State Hermitage and the Beyeler Foundation, Switzerland.</p> <p>The exposition is on display in the impressionist halls, exquisitely complementing the paintings by Claude Monet from the State Hermitage collection, which includes a fine range of Monet&rsquo;s early work, beginning with the celebrated&nbsp;<em>Women in the Garden</em>&nbsp;and two oversized Montgeron canvasses. These &ldquo;garden&rdquo; scenes, painted in Sainte-Adresse and Montgeron, cry out for comparison with the later views of Giverny.</p> <p>The artistry of Claude Monet (1840&ndash;1926) can be nominally divided into three periods. The early period stretches from his first landscape sketches (1856) to his first personal exhibition at the Durand-Ruel Gallery in 1883. It was then that the artist settled in Giverny, a place he chose as the cornerstone for the rest of his life. The next, central period is striking first and foremost for his series of landscapes, variations on a single motif:&nbsp;<em>Haystacks</em>,&nbsp;<em>Poppy Field</em>,&nbsp;<em>Poplars</em>. The final and most extended period begins in 1892&nbsp;with his rendering of the Rouen Cathedral and continues with the large group&nbsp;<em>Views of the River Thames in London</em>&nbsp;and more definitively by the series of depictions of the sprawling Giverny garden created by Monet himself:&nbsp;&nbsp;<em>In the Meadow</em>,<em>&nbsp;Japanese Footbridge</em>,<em>&nbsp;Water Lilies</em>.</p> <p>The Beyeler Foundation, founded in 1997 in Riehen, Switzerland by one of the best gallerists of the 20th Century, won acclaim for its featured works by impressionists and the contemporary masters whose names continue to define the path of world art. The exposition showcases three paintings by Claude Monet that beautifully illustrate the facets of his art that are missing from the Hermitage collection. They are all part of the Giverny period &ndash; even&nbsp;<em>Rouen Cathedral</em>, begun in Rouen (1892), continued there (1893) but finished within the confines of his Giverny studio (1894), when his artistic mastery was no longer in need of any hints from nature.</p> <p>The general problem of the&nbsp;<em>Rouen Cathedral</em>&nbsp;series, comprising a total of 30 canvases, was not only the consistent rendering of the transitory state of the cathedral&rsquo;s lighting, but also in the pictorial transfiguration of visual effects in &ldquo;symphonic&rdquo; arrangement. Each and every nuance is striking. The morning rays are already streaming into the upper floors of Alban Tower, yet the cathedral&rsquo;s foundation continues to slumber in deep shadow, the gothic stones tamed by the air enshrouding them.</p> <p>All of Monet&rsquo;s later work is associated with Giverny. He planted gardens there that were at once an amazing feat of gardening skill and a fertile environment for painting. The Big Pond is magnificent, landscaped in the Eastern tradition, complete with the wooden footbridge above it and the lush vegetation dotting its banks.&nbsp;<em>Japanese Footbridge</em>&nbsp;from the Beyeler Foundation (1918&ndash;1924) was painted following a series of dramatic event&rsquo;s in the artist&rsquo;s life: the death of his wife, his eldest son&rsquo;s heart attack, his deteriorating vision. But in the summer of 1914, despite all of his misfortunes, he took up the brush once again, finding the best medicine and solace in his work. His connection with nature is becoming too fragile. It&rsquo;s no longer a landscape in the common sense of the word or even a flight of fancy on a conventional theme, but an expression of sheer awe in the face of the eternal green elements. The rhythmics of this awe becomes the meaning of his work. &nbsp;</p> <p>The main theme of the older artist&rsquo;s paintings &ndash;&nbsp;<em>Water Lilies</em>. He paints them over and over again, without thinking about the purpose of his canvases. Over time, the idea came about to put them in the Orangerie Building at Tuileries Garden. Not all of them were &ldquo;well-suited,&rdquo; and the ones that didn&rsquo;t make the cut remained unknown until the mid-20th Century. The generality of the color splashes in the later&nbsp;<em>Water Lilies</em>&nbsp;(1914-17) is striking: blue water and a green blotch of leaves, nothing more. But it&rsquo;s important to remember that Monet&rsquo;s generalizations were inspired by his pantheistic attitude towards the eternal green of nature, his homage to the vitality of the water element and world of vegetation.</p> Tue, 29 Jul 2014 06:44:35 +0000 - State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg (Winter Palace of Peter the Great) - June 10th - January 11th, 2015 <p>On June 10, 2014, room number 307 (the Blue Bedroom) of the Winter Palace saw the opening of the "Monologue in Praise of the Seashell" exhibition. The exhibition features more than 150 objects of arts and crafts covering the period from antiquity (4000 BC) to the present day from the State Hermitage collection.</p> <p>Since ancient times, shells have played an important role in human life &ndash; at home, in religion, during ceremonies. With the development of religious ideas, they became endowed with a certain symbolic meaning, somehow uniting different nations and religions, while at the same time somehow significantly differentiating them. The unity comes from the habitat and shape of the shells &ndash; a symbol of the water element, of femininity. Also, at different times and in different nations, shells have been used as a form of currency, for example, in Africa "shell money" was in circulation almost until the 20th century.</p> <p>The exhibition aims to show how attractive this wonderful creation of nature is to man, and how it can be turned into a work of art in the hands of a skilled craftsman. The Hermitage collection allows you to see the shell in its various guises &ndash; as a talisman, amulet, table decoration and as a valuable material for jewellers and cameo engravers.</p> <p>Since the 16th century,&nbsp;<em>Nautiluses</em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<em>turbo shells</em>&nbsp;imported from the South Seas have been purified into mother-of-pearl, and jewellers have placed them in precious settings. These highly valued products have adorned kings&rsquo; and tsars&rsquo; treasuries, cabinets and collections of curiosity lovers.</p> <p><em>Cowries, tridacnas&nbsp;</em>and<em>&nbsp;turbo shells</em>&nbsp;have attracted jewellers with their wealth and elegance of colours and pleasing tactile qualities. They used them to create snuff containers, powder flasks and a variety of boxes.&nbsp;<em>Triton&rsquo;s trumpet</em>&nbsp;and&nbsp;<em>Turbinella rapa</em>&nbsp;shells have been used in many countries as ritual musical instruments, bugles and hunting horns. The beautiful, graceful shape of shells has offered plenty of opportunity to transform them into cups, fountains, table decorations, etc.</p> <p>The exposition opens with exhibits from the first half of the 4th millennium BC &ndash; shells found during archaeological excavations of different settlements in Eurasia. They served as ornaments of status and amulets, carrying specific symbolic meaning.</p> <p>Eventually, shells began to be used as a material for gem carvers. On display at the exhibition are luxury items made by goldsmiths and silversmiths of the 16th and 17th centuries where shells are complemented by images related to water and sea elements. These include Aphrodite who was &lsquo;born from the foaming waves&rsquo;, the ruler of the seas Poseidon, the Tritons, Nereides and hippocampi, dolphins and turtles.</p> <p>During the Rococo period, master craftsmen made elegant snuff boxes, caskets, bottles in the shape of shells from various materials &ndash; porcelain, ornamental stone, gold and silver, decorating them with carvings, bright enamel and paintings.</p> <p>The shell theme and its shape have attracted artists from different disciplines over the centuries. Rocaille swirls, based on the shell shape, have become one of the main decorative motifs of the Rococo style of the mid-18th century, whose ideas were actively developed by artists in the 19th century, who created the so-called &lsquo;marine Rococo style&rsquo;. It was the main decorative motif of the neo-Rococo style.</p> <p>Modern masters are also turning to the shell for inspiration, seeing it as a refined material for creating works of art, or rendering it in different materials.</p> Tue, 29 Jul 2014 06:40:41 +0000 Amy Guidry, Group Exhibition - Louisiana State Museum - July 19th - August 28th <p>Juried exhibition of art by Louisiana artists held at the Capitol Park Museum (formerly Louisiana State Museum). Jurors- Ben Thompson, Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville; Katie Pfohl, Curator at LSU Museum of Art; and Eric Robert Dallimore, co-owner of the Leon Gallery, Denver, Colorado</p> Mon, 28 Jul 2014 16:34:08 +0000 Group Show - Museo La Permanente Milano - April 9th - June 15th <p>Fino al 15 giugno &egrave; in corso la mostra Nati nei &rsquo;30. Milano e la generazione di Piero Manzoni.<br /><br />In concomitanza con l&rsquo;antologica di Piero Manzoni a Palazzo Reale, la rassegna, che partecipa al palinsesto della &ldquo;Primavera di Milano&ldquo;, propone una ricognizione della generazione di artisti milanesi di nascita o di adozione, nati fra il 1930 e il 1939, e quindi appartenenti alla generazione di Manzoni.<br /><br />Si tratta di una generazione nata tutta durante il fascismo; che conosce da vicino la guerra e la guerra civile, anche se non vi partecipa direttamente; che sente come patria l&rsquo;Europa e l&rsquo;America, non l&rsquo;Italia sconfitta, ma trova i maestri pi&ugrave; condivisi in Lucio Fontana e, in misura minore, in Munari; che vive sia le durezze del dopoguerra, sia gli anni del boom economico. E&rsquo; una generazione per cui gli studi all&rsquo;accademia (a Brera, dove insegnavano Funi, Carr&agrave;, Carpi, Marino Marini) rappresentavano ancora un&rsquo;esperienza decisiva di formazione; che operava in un sistema dell&rsquo;arte ancora incentrato sull&rsquo;artista pi&ugrave; che sul critico; che aveva possibilit&agrave; di esporre o di vendere ancora relativamente limitate (la qual cosa favoriva complicit&agrave; e aggregazioni ben pi&ugrave; di ora); che &ndash; al di l&agrave; di nostalgie e leggende &ndash; viveva ancora momenti di incontro, confronto, scontro, discussione quotidiani, imparagonabili a quanto accade oggi.<br /><br />Sessanta artisti e sessanta opere documentano l&rsquo;effervescente clima milanese degli anni Sessanta-Settanta, la stagione artistica successiva al realismo, all&rsquo;informale, al realismo esistenziale. La mostra prosegue poi addentrandosi nel clima postinformale dei primi anni Sessanta, attraverso esponenti di &ldquo;Azimuth&rdquo;, dell&rsquo;arte cinetica e programmata, del gruppo del Cenobio. Documenta quindi le ricerche degli esponenti della figurazione vicina alla Pop Art e della pittura analitica, soffermandosi infine sulle ricerche concettuali e sulla poesia visiva. Grande attenzione &egrave; dedicata alla scultura, rappresentata dai principali artisti nati fra il 1930 e il 1939 e attivi a Milano. La mostra per&ograve; non vuole essere una ricognizione per &ldquo;gruppi&rdquo; ma per individualit&agrave; e vasto spazio &egrave; dedicato anche a figure che si muovono individualmente nel panorama del periodo.<br /><br />Accompagna l&rsquo;iniziativa un catalogo Skira con testi delle curatrici, biografie ragionate a cura di Lorella Giudici e Luca Cavallini e dichiarazioni di poetica degli artisti a cura di Elisabetta Staudacher.<br /><br />Il progetto allestitivo della mostra &egrave; realizzato da Massimo Negri dello studio DNPR.<br /><br />In concomitanza alla mostra e a corollario della stessa si terr&agrave; una serie di incontri di approfondimento sul fermento culturale milanese tra gli anni Sessanta e gli anni Ottanta e sull&rsquo;influenza di quel periodo sul clima artistico di oggi.<br /><br />Il prossimo appuntamento &egrave; MARTEDI&rsquo; 10 GIUGNO, ALLE ORE 18.30, con MARTINA CORGNATI che terr&agrave; la conferenza Milano laboratorio di una &ldquo;strategia del segno&rdquo; .&nbsp; Alla fine del sesto decennio, con la conclusione dell&rsquo;esperienza nucleare e una sostanziale polverizzazione degli altri gruppi in individualit&agrave; singole, dotate di un linguaggio gi&agrave; caratterizzato,&nbsp; Milano, forse pi&ugrave; di ogni altra citt&agrave; italiana, si configura come un laboratorio di idee e progetti originali, in cui quella che potremmo provare a chiamare la &ldquo;strategia del segno&rdquo; assume un&rsquo;importanza determinante, sia presso gli artisti del Cenobio sia nell&rsquo;ambito di Azimut; nel contesto delle sperimentazioni di Lucio Fontana come anche fra gli ex-adepti del Movimento Arte Concreta. Il decennio che si apre vedr&agrave; una notevole crescita di interesse per l&rsquo;oggetto, &ldquo;cosa&rdquo; in ambito minimal, e &ldquo;prodotto&rdquo; in ambito pop. Anche il segno, da ingrediente dell&rsquo;espressivit&agrave; informale tende a farsi oggetto in se stesso, meritevole di un&rsquo;indagine specifica condotta in buona parte dagli artisti milanesi, in termini molto originali.</p> Sun, 27 Jul 2014 19:45:18 +0000 - CHART ART FAIR - August 29th - August 31st <h3>Opening Hours &amp;

part&nbsp;of the government-sponsored&nbsp;Farm Security Administration beginning in 1936,&nbsp;documenting the socialand economic hardships&nbsp;faced by millions of&nbsp;rural Americans during periods of drought and Depression. This exhibition, drawn from Philbrook&rsquo;s collection, features Lee&rsquo;s Oklahoma-based photographs from 1939-1940.&nbsp;</p> </div> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 23:19:34 +0000 Rabih MrouƩ, Laurie Vannaz - Fri Art - June 27th - August 10th <p>Rabih Mrou&eacute;<br />For his first Swiss solo exhibition, a collaboration between Fri Art and the Belluard Bollwerk International Festival, Lebanese artist Rabih Mrou&eacute; (*1967) has hand-picked a number of his recent works which explore how subjective and collective narratives, coupled with the media, influence the construction of historical accounts.</p> <p>Rabih Mrou&eacute; belongs to the generation of Lebanese artists who came to prominence in the immediate period after the official end of the civil war in 1990. As well as being a stage and film director, script-writer and actor &ndash; starring most notably alongside Catherine Deneuve in Je veux voir, a film by Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige &ndash; Rabih Mrou&eacute; is a visual artist whose work includes video, photography and installation art.</p> <p>Laurie Vannaz, The Lost Ship&nbsp;For her first solo institutional exhibition, Laurie Vannaz (*1987), a young Fribourg artist and recent graduate of HEAD in Geneva, will present a large-scale immersive video installation.</p> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 23:13:57 +0000 Hope Dendinger, Katrina Methot-Swanson, Shea Wilkinson - Artists Cooperative Gallery - July 29th - August 31st <p>For the month of August, Omaha artists Hope Dendinger, Katrina Methot-Swanson, and Shea Wilkinson will present &ldquo;Evolutionary Relationships.&rdquo;&nbsp; The show runs July 29, through August 31, 2014.&nbsp; They will host an <strong>opening celebration during Omaha First Fridays at the Artists&rsquo; Cooperative Fine Art Gallery, 405 S. 11th St., from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, August 1, 2014.&nbsp; </strong><br /> &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Mixed media artist, <strong>Hope Dendinger</strong> has two collections that capture emotion in portraits and the allure of nature in her new series of what she calls, &ldquo;Tree Forms.&rdquo;&nbsp; Hope&rsquo;s portraits depict an aura of emotional hardships with grainy, heavily textured surfaces that move toward a detailed focus in faces. &nbsp;Other works emphasize on the more positive powers of loyalty and love.&nbsp; Dendinger&rsquo;s Tree Forms series are ink on paper renderings with hints of symbolism.&nbsp; The images show the tree form stripped and scarred, yet they appear to still be alive.&nbsp; Much like revelations in her portraits, the Tree Forms have a similar theme.&nbsp; &ldquo;The Tree Forms are bare in vegetation, but do not lack liveliness.&nbsp; They are a representation of life experiences and hardships that the human race endures,&rdquo; states Dendinger.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The oil paintings of <strong>Katrina Methot-Swanson </strong>present the viewer a portal into solitude.&nbsp; For this show, Katrina&rsquo;s work has evolved from the obscure vision of what is beyond the window glass and what it reflects.&nbsp; While the paintings are both dark and well lit, they also have a dream-like feel to them.&nbsp; &ldquo;Walking around at night offers me a peaceful time where I can catch up with my thoughts and daydreams, I find myself painting solitary people who seem to be in their own world,&rdquo; says Katrina, &ldquo;Darkness makes it easy to think of yourself as alone, even when you are surrounded by people throughout the day, but perceptions change at night, and I&rsquo;m interested in capturing a moment that can portray a universal loneliness.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> For this show, <strong>Shea Wilkinson </strong>has created freehand quilts of plant cross-sections. &nbsp;When magnified many times, the plant structure reveals a world of intricacies and puzzles.&nbsp; Through Wilkinson&rsquo;s quilts, it is easy to see familiar objects created by man.&nbsp; It makes one ponder.&nbsp; Why is there a mysterious correlation between the plant and us, the observer and consumer?&nbsp; Do plant forms inspire some architecture?&nbsp; About her images, Shea explains, &ldquo;Within plant structures, everything is stable and as it should be, yet is not rigidly defined as it is in man-made structures.&nbsp; After studying and processing these natural formations, I&rsquo;ve extracted various patterns from many plants and put them together in ways that don&rsquo;t exist in nature.&rdquo;</p> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 22:56:30 +0000 Paul Greedy - UTS Gallery - July 29th - August 29th <p>Paul Greedy&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>Pressure Vessel</em>&nbsp;is an audio installation that explores the dynamics of sound propagation in architectural space.&nbsp; By mapping the gallery&rsquo;s resonances, modes and dominant frequencies he will be creating instruments tailored to the particular acoustic qualities of the gallery.</p> <p>Ultrasonic rangefinders will track a viewer&rsquo;s movements through the gallery, activating sets of instruments that correspond to their locations; the viewer is both audience and performer, activating and embodying the experience of its characteristic resonances.</p> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 22:42:26 +0000 Peter Halley - Art Plural Gallery - August 29th - October 3rd <p>Art Plural Gallery will be showcasing ten works from renowned American artist, Peter Halley. Largely associated with Neo-Conceptualism and Minimalist art, he is famed for his vibrantly-coloured geometrical paintings, often described as square prisons. Halley challenges the concept of space, viewing his principle motif, the square, as a metaphor for confinement. Reflecting the idea of prisons, solitary themes play crucial to Halley&rsquo;s work. The artist refers to the time when he first arrived in New York, recollecting the isolated hardships he faced upon living alone. The importance of solitary isolation in his work is further enhanced by his intensely bright, almost fluorescent, colour palette, which has often been interpreted as a clear movement away from the natural world. Using Roll-a-Tex and Day-Glo paint as his main material sources, Halley&rsquo;s art thus transcends modern principles as a reflection of contemporary society.</p> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 22:31:31 +0000 Agathe de Bailliencourt - Art Plural Gallery - August 29th - October 3rd <p>Art Plural Gallery is pleased to announce&nbsp;<em>Water, Colour, Recordings</em>, the solo exhibition of French Berlin-based artist Agathe de Bailliencourt running from August 29 to October 3, 2014 at Third Floor - Art Plural Gallery. The exhibition unveils the new series&nbsp;<em>Couleur du Temps.</em>&nbsp;</p> <p>Agathe de Bailliencourt&rsquo;s exhibition deals with the question of horizon, as one of painting&rsquo;s most basic acts in defining time, space, and a scale of infinity. By applying an extended version of watercolor-technique on untreated linen canvas, de Bailliencourt turns the perspective of a romantic tradition of landscape painting, the imagination of a distant past, towards an open futurist vision.&nbsp;</p> <p>The untreated linen fiber reacts to the painting material in an extremely sensitive and almost uncontrollable way. At the same time, every action is irreversibly visible, laying bare the entire procedure of producing an image of a landscape.&nbsp;</p> <p>Through an elaborate method of repetitive movements, of slow sedimentation of color and of recording the process itself, the artist establishes the landscape with a single horizontal line, reminding the work of Hiroshi Sugimoto. The paintings are built up as a complex layering of somehow responsive shades of color.&nbsp;</p> <p>More than creating an image, Agathe de Bailliencourt creates a context, an environment that is open for the viewer. In her own words, the artist sees the work as an intuitive exploration for an area that shifts the experience of materiality and depth towards something beyond, something beyond inside and outside.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 22:28:36 +0000 Paul Kwilecki - The Ogden Museum of Southern Art - July 24th - September 21st <p>Paul Kwilecki owned and operated a hardware store in Bainbridge, GA, and spent over 40 years photographing his native Decatur County, GA. From the 1960s - 2000s, Kwilecki made thousands of black &amp; white photographs that captured the passage of time and the changes that took place in this southwest corner of Georgia. One Place is an intimate and focused portrait of a single place that resonates with a universal vision of humanity.</p> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 22:22:20 +0000
