Kathleen Elliot, Acorns, glass, 11"h x 13"w x 6"d, 2007
Kathleen Elliot’s new series of flameworked glass botanical sculptures is both unexpected and intriguing. She achieves rich surface textures and pure luminous colours in imagery that spans natural form from flowers, fruits, pods and nests, to complex entwined linear vines.... [more]

Kathleen Elliot's glass sculptures straddle the line between ritual and playfulness. Her work, which stems from a love of natural forms, explores how the wonders of nature, big and small, have an indisputable calming effect on us as we muddle through the distractions of daily life. Works such as Whispering Vine (2008) recall ceremonial dance, as a circle of latticed glass, capped with upward-reaching leaves,... [more]

Our Collector's Catalogue series bridges the gap between collectors and artists by focusing on the industry of art.
The sixth edition of this popular series will bring collectors and artists even closer by taking on the subject of modern-day patronage. What does patronage look like in the modern world? What sort of relationships do contemporary artists have to their patrons today? We’ll... [more]
We assume that when a book is sold, the author gets paid. When a song is played, the musician gets paid. But when a work of art is sold, often the artist gets...well, nothing.
In an art economy becoming ever more characterized by quick turn-arounds and massive art speculation, it isn't the artists who profit when the price tags on their works go up. Those profits go to the dealers, the auction houses, and the galleries. The artists that created the works: they can't claim a dime of what they s... [more]

Sun Tunnels (1976) via CLUI
Photographer, videographer, and sculptor Nancy Holt, 75, passed away Saturday in Manhattan after fighting a long battle with Leukemia.
Holt, best known for her monumental sized sculptures in Southwest, was one of the first, and most notable, pioneers of the Land-art movement of the 60s and 70s. She was a rarity in her time, both as a woman in an art world still largely dominated by men and as an artist eschewing the gallery for on-site installations. Over her fif... [more]

Collage Uncontained at La Mama La Galleria by Tzwick Helene Berson, Lauren Blankstein, Anne Hammel, Veronique Lerebours, Deirdre Mackenzie, Bernice Rubin, Elizabeth Velazquez at La MaMa La Galleria
January 23rd - February 8th
The practice of collage drew these seven, diverse female artists together about three years ago when they met in a local collage class. Their shared passion for the form held them together after the class disbanded. Ranging in age from mid-40s to 70s, they continued to meet in various configurations and city spaces, talking, thinking and working. The results of their labors, over 100 individually attributed collages, are on view now at La Mama La Galleria at 6 East 1st Street (through Feb. 8).
The ArtSlant Prize 2014 begins accepting submissions today!
We've made some changes this year so here are a few things you'll need to know:
6 Rounds, February - September, 2014
$3 Entry Fee
6 Solo Exhibitions in Chicago
Lots of exposure on our site and social networks throughout the application and selection process

Adel Gorgy, Traces of Pollock #3, 2013, Pigment Print, 40 x 72 in. (100 x 180 cm.)
Adel Gorgy, in his current exhibition, Traces of Pollock, de Kooning and Warhol at Able Fine Art NY in Chelsea has brought keen observation, a graceful esthetic and a unique vision and process to an impressive body of work. In the current age of knockoffs and spinoffs, prequels and sequels, true originality of thought and expression, like Adel Gorgy's, is rare and worthy of attention.
In a series of photographi... [more]
The news is just out that ArtMiami LLC has just acquired the Downtown Fair, set to open at the 69th Regiment Armory during Frieze New York. The fair was purchased for an undisclosed price from the previous organizers, who "will not have any involvement or interest in the new fair." I'd never heard of this fair, so I was a bit surprised that ArtMiami—who in 2013 purchased Aqua Art Fair in Miami Beach, and is set to also open a new fair in Silicon Valley in 2014—was announcing a pur...
