Though this future is focused on the local, I hope to chart the universality of the experience through abstraction, ca... [more]

New York Kathleen Elliot Tenri Cultural Institute of New York by Dominick Lombardi Kathleen Elliot's glass sculptures straddle the line between ritual and playfulness.

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]
