VanDeb Editions presents – Summer Selects

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Each summer VanDeb Editions chooses prints from among the artists that they have worked with for their Summer Selects show. Each artist worked with Master printer Marjorie VanDyke to create either etchings, aquatints or monotypes at the VanDeb Studio. The show is up from June 5 – August 31st.

DEBORAH FREEDMAN & MARJORIE VAN DYKE  began their association at Robert Blackburn’s Printmaking Workshop in 1988 – sharing a passion for etching and monotype. In 1999 they founded VanDeb Editions – collaborating with artists to explore the process of making prints while expanding their aesthetic vocabulary. It has been a joy for them to work with the 43 people who have produced prints of originality and superlative production values.

“Endless Summer.” by Danny Galieote at the JoAnne Artman Gallery

Monday, June 4th, 2018

JoAnne Artman Gallery  is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Danny Galieote with a focus on iconic American summertime scenes – Endless Summer.

Danny Galieote has a propensity for capturing the quintessentials of Americana in works that blend realist narratives with a pop sensibility. The works are reminiscent of classic, vintage postcard imagery with an undercurrent of poetic, and often surprising, juxtaposition. The stylistic effect is a blend between the old-school charm of Norman Rockwell, with the unexpected twist of surrealist René Magritte.  

The show is ongoing until August 14th, 2018. The Artists’ Reception is on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm

Velocity Games: New Work by Margaret Garrett and Steven Kinder at Sara Nightingale Gallery

Saturday, June 2nd, 2018
Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Velocity Games: New Work by Margaret Garrett and Steven Kinder, opening Saturday, May 26, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Both artists are inspired by motion in the natural world and/ or the human body. 

Margaret Garrett is an artist and dancer whose abstract paintings allude to the qualities of rhythm and movement. Trained as dancer, she left home at the age of sixteen to join the Pennsylvania Ballet and later danced with the Cleveland Ballet as a soloist. She began to paint in her early twenties, finding something spiritually akin to dance in the movement of line and color. Garrett’s approach to painting is strongly influenced by her early training in dance. “When I begin working on a new piece, I see the paper or canvas as an empty stage…” Texture, form, and the interaction of colors are, for her, manifestations of motion, rhythm, and energy.

Steven Kinder attended Cooper Union and has been making drawings, paintings, and large scale installations inspired by movement, energy and “natural forces” for over four decades.  His recent work advances his interests in various forms of dynamic tension found in nature, specifically tidal bores, surges, and whirlpools. Even his easel is not static; he designed a rotating mount for his works. Kinder wants his work to “call out in some way”. He is inspired by the eternal color of Rothko, the angst embedded in the figures of Bacon, and geometric abstractions.
Exhibition ongoing until June 26th

ODETTA Gallery presents Curmudgeon

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

ODETTA Gallery feels that you can trust a curmudgeon. They’re some of their favorite people. Deep down, they’re tender-hearted. Gruff, stoic, humorous, and empathic. With pencil, sewn materials, kitsch, and word play the gallery’s curmudgeons explore unlikely materials to deliver their message. ODETTA hopes that visitors will come out and spend some time with their cranky artists and their work. You’ll more than likely share a laugh while taking in the view.

The exhibition features David Borawski, Carla Rae Johnson, and Rita Valley. As is their practice the gallery curates Flat Files. The featured artists are Patricia Dahlman and Gil Scullion.

The exhibition runs June 1 – July 1, 2018 with the opening reception on Friday, June 1, 6-8 pm

Artist’s Talk: Sunday, July 1, 3:00 pm  (Story Telling Performance with Suzanne Benton 4:30)

Terrorism for Art Galleries and Dealers – La Playa

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

TERRORISM INSURANCE FOR ART DEALERS

None of us like to contemplate terrorism, particularly experiencing it in our own country. But the reality of the 21st Century is it’s here and with the increased use of vehicles and lone shooters causing chaos on the high street, it’s a more tangible and rapidly perpetrated threat than ever before.

If an incident occurs, clearly your first concern will be for your safety and that of your loved ones. But have you considered what a terrorist incident in your area could mean for your business?

As a business owner, the government-backed insurance protection provided is different from what you have as a private individual.

Did you know, for example, that damage caused by a terrorist attack to private property is automatically covered by insurers in both the US and the UK and in the case of a major incident underwritten by the government, but damage to commercial interests are not?

Terrorism is most commonly defined as the ‘use of force or violence and/or threat for political, religious, or ideological purposes and with the intention to influence any government and/or to put the public or any section of the public in fear’. Along with cyber attack, nuclear damage, political violence and radioactivity, it is a standard exclusion on commercial business policies.

You need to opt in for terrorism insurance for your business to recoup your financial loss to stock and property and get your business up and running again quickly. It is also important to note that if you purchase Business Interruption insurance which reimburses you for loss of earnings or increased cost of working as a result of an incident, this is normally only as a result of a physical damage loss.

If your own premises or stock are not actually damaged by a terrorist attack you may well find yourself seriously out of pocket because your customers are steering clear of your gallery or even the entire neighbourhood. This can also happen in the event of a bomb scare or other terrorist threat, even if no actual incident takes place.

You need to consider whether your business will be affected by disruption to local infrastructure, road closures and services as a result. Cover for this may be purchased as an extension.

Depending on your circumstances, terrorism insurance for specialist art galleries and dealers can be expensive and hard to get hold of when not attached to a package policy. Make sure you’re talking to a broker who knows the market and can get you an all-inclusive Dealer’s package, or access quality stand-alone insurance.

Call us or drop us a line in the UK on: +44 1223 200650 or in the US on: +1 646 665 7737 to discuss your needs.
