Andreas Urteil (1933-1963) is considered one of the most pro minent sculptors of the 1950s and 1960s. The 21er Haus exhibition marks the first time in 25 years that a Viennese museum puts a spotlight on the arti st&rsquo\;s work\, who was both a student of and assistant to Fritz Wotruba . The show includes more than 30 sculptures and drawings.
Finding a n ew way to transport dynamics and motion in space is central to Urteil&rsquo \;s work. In his search he draws on the formal achievements of early avant- garde movements such as Italian Futurism. The artist&rsquo\;s early work is surprisingly mature especially considering the fact that it stopped due to his untimely death.

Please join ACME Fine Art for the first exhibition of the 20 14 season\, a group exhibition of artwork selected by Gallery Director Davi d Cowan. The exhibition will feature the artists Gilbert Franklin\, Nanno d e Groot\, Resia Schor\, and Ilya Schor. All four artists are well known to New England art aficionados and collectors because of their connections to the Provincetown artists' colony. The exhibition will open on Friday 24 Jan uary and will be on view through Saturday 22 February 2014. A reception wil l be held on the evening of Friday\, 7 February from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.\, an d will coincide with SoWa's First Friday festivities.

\n

The exhibitio n will feature a number of important late canvases by Nanno de Groot\, many of which have not been exhibited in more than four decades. A native of th e Netherlands\, Nanno de Groot emigrated to the U.S. following his service in the Dutch Merchant Marine at the conclusion of World War II. Always an a vid draftsman\, \;de Groot took up painting in a decidedly avant-garde manner almost as soon as he gained access to studio space in San Francisco in 1948. De Groot's brief career as an artist ended with his untimely death in 1963 at age 50.

\n

An impressive array of modern 20th century scul pture will be an important aspect of this year's Director's Choice exhibiti on. ACME Fine Art is delighted to announce that the gallery now represents the estate of Gilbert Franklin. We are delighted to introduce Franklin by p resenting a fine group of his late 20th century bronzes as a part of this e xhibition. Franklin's illustrious career included membership in the Nationa l Academy of Design. He was a Fellow and Trustee of the American Academy in Rome\, and he won the Prix de Rome in sculpture in 1948. Franklin served a s Professor of Sculpture\, and Chairman and Dean of the Division of Fine Ar ts at the Rhode Island School of Design -his alma mater- and also taught at Harvard\, Yale\, and the University of Pennsylvania during his almost four decade long career in academia.

\n

Last summer the Provincetown Art A ssociation and Museum mounted a beautiful\, high season exhibition titled < em>Abstract Marriage: Sculpture by Ilya Schor and Resia Schor. Followi ng on the heels of this important museum exhibition we are delighted that w e can make selections from the PAAM exhibition a fundamental component of o ur 2014 Director's Choice season opener. In addition to PAAM\, Ilya Schor's work has been included in Museum shows in New York\, Boston\, Chicago and Milwaukee. The Jewish Museum (NYC) honored Schor with a retrospective exhib ition in 1965.

To conduct research for The Calling\, artist Angeli ca Mesiti has travelled to the village of Kuskoy in Northern Turkey\, the i sland of La Gomera in The Canary Islands and the Island of Evia in Greece w here whistling languages are all still in use.

For these commu nities\, whistling languages are in a process of transformation from their traditional use as tools for communication across vast lands into tourist a ttractions and cultural artefacts and are being taught to local school chil dren.

The Calling is a poignant exploration of ancien t human traditions evolving and adapting to the modern world. Mesiti's work speaks to the tenacity and creativity of traditional cultures in the face of technical progress and environmental flux.

This exhibition is the work of \;Sydney/Paris-based artist Angelica Mesiti\, \;winn er of \;the \;inaugural Ian Potter Moving Image Commission.
< br /> Angelica Mesiti is represented by Anna Schwartz Gallery. Produced by Felix Media.

Tristan Govignon is a multifaceted artist who works in varie d media\, styles\, and techniques to achieve powerful \;two and three-d imensional artworks in bold color\, expressive forms and geometric composit ions. The artist&rsquo\;s hand and vision become \;evident in the multi disciplinary pieces on exhibition. His openness of style reflects his open mind and desire to explore all areas of \; \;his life through diffe rent trajectories.

Inspired by interactions with friends\, dai ly life\, and nature\, the dynamic works become personal and dreamlike narr atives that are full of movement\, \;growth and vitality. They are born from introspection in what he finds to be the meditative yet energetic act of making art. Each painting\, sculpture\, or \;photograph contains an attractive and mysterious aura\, which often suggest a deeper\, more compl ex meaning or emotion. Each media speaks to one another \;through a vis ual language that transcends their form. For Govignon\, these artworks are a record of his experience as an artist\, reflecting the inventive and spon taneous process of creating art. This exhibition shares his creative journe y.

Kent State University graduate Diana Al-Hadid&rsquo\;s monum ental sculpture Nolli&rsquo\;s Orders intermingles landscape\, arc hitecture and the human figure. Hovering between architectural ruin and fig urative sculpture\, the thirteen-foot high sculpture is constructed of stee l\, polymer gypsum\, fiberglass\, wood\, foam and paint. Nolli&rsquo\;s Orders was inspired by sources ranging from Italian and Northern Rena issance painting to Gothic architecture and Hellenistic sculpture. Its titl e refers to the eighteenth century Italian architect and surveyor Giambatti sta Nolli\, who is known for the iconic map of Rome that he completed in 17 48. Al-Hadid was born in 1981 in Aleppo Syria and currently lives and works in New York City.

Nancy Burnham&rsquo\;s solo ex hibition\, Quill 3\, is the final show from the Alaska State Museu m&rsquo\;s 2013 solo exhibition series. The exhibit will open on Friday\, J anuary 17\, at 4:30 p.m. with a reception sponsored by The Friends of the A laska State Museum. The museum will be open extended hours that evening\, u ntil 7 p.m.

\n

Burnham\, from Ester\, Alaska\, presents encaustic large-scale\, three-dimensional h angings\, relief and floor pieces. Encaustic is an old medium used all over the world. It involves mixing pure pigment and sometimes other materials w ith hot wax. The usual choice is beeswax\, which makes the studio smell lik e honey. If protected\, images painted in encaustic can be very long-lastin g. Some two-thousand year old encaustic portraits from Egypt are still brig ht and clear.

\n

The por cupine quills Burnham embeds in her pieces powerfully underscore a long-run ning theme in her work: beauty and pain. With this theme\, she explores &ld quo\;the idea of what we go through to be beautiful. Within the feminine co mmunity\, there is always a sharp or painful aspect to beauty.&rdquo\;

\ n

Burnham&rsquo\;s exhibition will be on di splay at the museum until February 28 when the museum will close for the co ntinued construction of the new facility. The museum will reopen in the new State Library\, Archives\, and Museum building at 395 Whittier St. in Apri l\, 2016. The new 118\,000 square foot facility will feature museum galleri es\, a museum store\, a café\;\, a large 125-seat multi-purpose room\ , a classroom\, a reading room\, a research room\, the state historical lib raries\, and state archives &ndash\; all under one roof.

In 2013\, the Albertina is dedicating a first solo museum ex hibit to the Austrian artist Sonja Gangl. In large-format drawings\, Gangl works with the enlargement of details and concentration on particular detai ls. Her new works exhibited in the Albertina show human eyes\, sometimes as a pair\, sometimes alone. With its function of establishing contact with t he world\, the eye is an instrument that can override distances\, is itself an extremely vulnerable organ\, but must at the same time keep a threateni ng world at a distance. Thus\, the eyes that Sonja Gangl zooms in on appear to demand that the viewer move back a step to show respect.

Georg Baselitz\, born in 1938\, is one of the most famous co ntemporary German painters. He has left an imprint on modern painting as of 1960. A trademark for which the artist is famous around the world is his s tanding his paintings on their heads. By rotating the motif\, Georg Baselit z reduces its monumentality\, abstracts it and liberates it from its conven tionally conceived content.

The collections of the Albertina con tain some 120 paintings\, watercolours\, print graphics and drawings by Bas elitz\, of which a cross-section is now being presented on the occasion of the artist's 75th birthday. One focus of the show is provided by works from his Remix group from 2005/06: works in which Baselitz reinterprets and res tages his earlier works.

Parallel to the Baselitz solo exhibiti on\, the Albertina also provides a look at the private collection of the ar tist in an exhibit of colour woodcuts of the Renaissance.

Chiaroscuro woodcuts of the sixteenth century are to be the subject of an exhibition opening at the Albertina in autumn 2013. Around \;220 works will be shown from the collection of the paint er Georg Baselitz and from the Albertina with the intention of providing a complete account of the genesis and artistic development of this new printi ng technique\, which involved supplementing the black line block with one o r several colour tone blocks.
The first known examples of the procedu re come from Lucas Cranach and Hans Burgkmair\, the latter of whom worked t ogether in some prints with the block-cutter Jost de Negker. Attractive for colour effects otherwise unattainable in printed media\, the method was so on adopted by two artists from the Dü\;rer circle\, Baldung Grien and H ans Wechtlin\, along with masters such as Albrecht Altdorfer.
Only a few years after its invention in Germany\, the first Italian masterpieces i n chiaroscuro woodcut were made by Ugo da Carpi. Although he falsely claime d to have invented the technique himself\, he was undoubtedly a key figure in its further development: he increasingly avoided use of the black line b lock working exclusively with tone blocks\; the unevenly cut colour fields endowed his work with a painterly character\, as if it had been modelled in colour and light. His successors\, Antonio da Trento and Niccolò\; V icentino\, took these innovations further and influenced other block-cutter s
right down to Andrea Andreani\, who set new standards partly by ado pting unusually large formats.
Another exceptional figure was the Sien ese artist Beccafumi\, who combined copper engraving with colour woodcut in some of his fascinating leaves.
Alongside France\, the technical pot ential of the colour woodcut was also explored in the Netherlands\, particu larly in the highly sophisticated work of Hendrik Goltzius\, the medium&rsq uo\;s most important proponent there. The exhibition focuses especially on beautiful and rare prints\, some of which are preserved only in a single co py.

In its various forms\, Realism comprises an attempt to find an aesthetic that is true to life. This exhibition\, drawn entirely from th e AMAM&rsquo\;s collection\, explores the various approaches undertaken by Realist artists from the 19th to the mid-20th centuries\, in the name of ac hieving an aesthetic that would faithfully represent the contemporary world . The Realist movement first achieved cohesion in mid-19th century France\, where artists began to undermine what they perceived as the contrived arti stic practices of the French Academy. Championing subjects that found inspi ration in the ambient world rather than in classical tradition\, these arti sts aimed to frankly portray France&rsquo\;s natural landscape\, working cl asses\, and rural society.

\n

The trends first set in motion by French artists reverberated throughout the rest of Europe\, reaching areas such a s The Hague\, where artists created naturalistic paintings of the Dutch lan dscape. The achievements of European Realists effectively broadened the sub ject matter and techniques deemed suitable for artistic representation\, se tting the stage for the experimental works of Impressionist and post-Impres sionist artists of subsequent generations.

\n

Across the Atlantic\, 19 th-century American artists also expressed realistic tendencies\, creating detailed landscape studies and minutely rendered still lifes. Later manifes tations of Realism found form in the works of American Regionalist artists\ , who depicted everyday life in the Midwest\, as well as in the works of th e Ashcan School and urban realists\, who recorded the gritty\, often unappe aling realities of American city life.

\n

Whether by practicing direct observation from life\, depicting accessible subjects\, or portraying vari ous social realities\, the artists in this exhibition shared a common goal of representing the modern world. The various techniques\, subjects\, and p ractices used reflect not only the complexity of contemporary life\, but al so the enormity of their artistic project.
