It's a small world. In a small gallery. Objects, Furniture, and Patterns at Art Since the Summer of 69 gallery

Last summer I went over to Steve Keister and Jill Levine's house for coffee and visiting and picture taking of their home. We ate doughnuts and coffee served in Steve's ceramics on a Mary Heilmann table, which is also filled with art of their own, and of their friends, as well as some Anasazi pot shards from their recent new mexico trip..........
and yes, I made a painting of this.
and yes, you can go see it in person in this group show.
Installed on a Mary Heilmann table, near Steve's sculpture (you can buy his cups at the show!), looking up at Amy Yao's wallpaper and clock, Josh Blackwell's curtain (the painting I made of his room is also in the exhibition).
run don't walk - 195 Chrystie street, 3rd floor. Gallery hours: Thursday - Sunday 1 - 6pm.

No secret, I love painting bookshelves.

Just this past September, Josh Blackwell took some friends to Manitoga, the home that Russel Wright built in Garrison New York, for his annual Birthday Field Trip. The Russel Wright Foundation was having a special event on that day - food, wine, music, and a tour of the estate. One of the most special field trips I've ever been on.

The Gods Must Be Crazy - Steve Keister and Jill Levine's place

Stopped by Jill and Steve's apt. last week. It's a mecca of treasures.....ceramics, textiles, plants, paintings, and sculpture. I'm a huge fan, so I'll keep it short:

and I love this description of Jill's sculpture " Murakami meets Dia de los Muertos" found here:

The River Room

Nope, I've never been there, and I've never met them. But that's no matter. Here's a little piece of Tivoli for all of us to enjoy. A room in Helen and Brice Marden's summer house.

Mary Fedden's living room

Come to my studio and I will put some books in your lap - one of them is of the artist Mary Fedden. I love her work. Best part, she's still ALIVE. Not to mention David Hockney was a former pupil.
