The Road to Montauk -- History in the Making

Jacqueline Hadel

A quick one-and-a-half-hour road trip on Long Island takes you on a journey through New York history. I highly recommend this trip in the summer time (when these places are officially open) for the city folks and tourists who are looking for a road trip that promises lots of open space and fresh air.

The debut installation at the Met Breuer, unveiled to the press on Tuesday (and to the general public on Mar. 18), fell short of the expectations raised by the Metropolitan Museum itself.

Edward Goldman

An unsettling cash phenomenon happened in the art world just two weeks ago, when a gigantic pile of money exchanged hands between two major American art philanthropists. A $500 million dollar pile, to be precise.

What's in a Name? Plenty for Artists

Daniel Grant | Posted 02.22.2016 | Arts
Daniel Grant

Titles of works of art seem to matter, but it is not clear why. A seascape titled "Seascape" seems redundant; announcing the location of the seascape ("Penobscot Bay at Nightfall") seems to comfort people.

"Buttoned Up Cloud" represents the 2300-mile journey between my small, rural hometown in eastern Washington to an equally small suburb in western Pennsylvania.

Artful Geometry

Dan Rockmore | Posted 01.11.2016 | Arts
Dan Rockmore

Architecture has a long history of geometric inspiration and aesthetics (besides the obvious mathematical connections with engineering), going back at least to ancient Greece and the infusion of classical geometric shapes like squares and circles into their structures.

As an artist with years of mathematical training, I am continuously looking for inspiration and find much in Cézanne's and Einstein's work.

Canvas and Silk/Bushwick and Beijing: The Art of Eric Jiaju Lee

At EXP, Lee offers a series of highly chromatic works that are richly textured, incorporating the pouring and puddling paint, paired with the skills of the brush. Indeed, the EXP viewer can consider the paintings a unique experience shared with the artist.

Drip, Splash, Pour: Jackson Pollock at MoMA

I'm still buzzing from the trip to planet Pollock. It's a world that's different and yet so close -- torrential in a familiar current. It's more than drip, splash, pour. It's ancient, modern, cosmic.

CultureZohn: 'Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict'

Patricia Zohn | Posted 11.04.2015 | Arts
Patricia Zohn

Peggy Guggenheim stands in stark contrast to the collectors of today, many of whom buy for portfolios and not passion and whose private museums and art galleries are not places of discovery but enshrinement. There were no six degrees of separation from the artists to Peggy who just as often slept beside them as hung them on her walls. 'I began to see Peggy... as the last of Henry James's transatlantic heroines, Daisy Miller with rather more balls.' wrote Gore Vidal.

CultureZohn: Helen and Company

Patricia Zohn

For many years, women artists and writers did their best to keep up with the guys. When the feminist movement came along, they resented being lumped into a category that defined them as "women artists." Helen Frankenthaler, a painter who is having a seriously revitalized pop culture moment, was among those who also resisted this label.

There Is No Romance in Art Fraud

The idea of a talented painter committed only to his art and the resultant harmless trickery may seem quaint and somewhat romantic, but it is hardly the case.

One of the greatest gifts a museum can supply a visitor is a free ticket to view important art works from around the world. Think of the many millions of people who are conveyed into a whole new arena of awareness because the door was open without cost.

Out on Eastern Long Island, real food and real estate rule, somebody who knows recently told me. This wisdom was proven at a special dinner at the Pollock-Krasner House on the waterfront Springs site where the artist couple lived.

At Louse Point in the Springs neighborhood of East Hampton where the air practically sparkles, we meet for an end of the day swim. As women do when we feel safe with each other, we let our guards down as we share about our lives.
