Volta Brings a World of Art to New York
Reprinted from Woman Around Town
Saturday, March 8th, 2014 by Mary Gregory on Playing Around
Amel Bennys, Again, 2013
The spring art season opens with top notch art galleries from all over the world bringing some of their best art to New York audiences. Volta is one of the most interesting of the fairs.
What sets it apart from the others is that at VOLTA, each gallery presents a solo exhibition. Rather than packing in whatever work they think might sell, galleries must carefully choose a single arti... [more]

Kathleen Elliot and Paul Stankard’s Contemporary Studio Art Glass at the Morris Museum, Morristown, NJ
by Mary Hrbacek
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]
Tenri Cultural Institute of New York
by Dominick Lombardi
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]
