Art + About with Carrie Marill, Trey Speegle, Brendan George Ko and more! April 05 2014

 

Thank You by Trey Speegle

Did you miss Jenny Odell's solo exhibition, Bert Teunissen at the Armory Show, or Sarah MacKenzie's opening? Don't worry - there's always plenty more to feast your eyes on from our incredible artists. Check out this month's latest and greatest:

  • WAA-TAH!'s Take Back The Streets exhibit and event at The New Museum with First Lady Michelle Obama, featuring Trey Speegle, was a big success! (Here's an article in the Wall Street Journal) The show has traveled to Wallplay and then Gallery 151. Next stop Washington, DC, April 25, then on to LA. At the opening for Very Much So we did paintball-by-number at Converge Gallery and it was a hit! The proceeds for participating went to the ASPCA of Williamsport.
  • Liz Kuball shot the cover story for the February 23 issue of the Sunday Telegraph magazine, about movie memorabilia auction houses in Los Angeles. You can see images from the project here.

  • Carrie Marill's solo show Domesticated at Lisa Sette Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ runs through May 17th.

  • Regional Landscapes by Tyson Anthony Roberts at Delta Workshop in Sacramento, CA, runs through May 4, 2014. The opening reception is Saturday, April 12 from 6-8pm. Roberts writes,

    “Landscapes provide an array of environments and familiar imagery to work with as a starting point. From here, elements of abstraction, color theory and spontaneity are merged to form rural and urban scenes that appear as if in constant transition, taking the viewer from what was to what may be. It is through this idea of continual movement by which my work suggests that the places we know are always changing, whether we are ready for them to or not.” 
  • Fernanda Cohen recently illustrated a bottle for Coca-Cola Light (Argentina). Last month, Cohen did an installation of 20 hand-painted, lifesize wooden women for Alcorta Shopping, a shopping mall in Buenos Aires.

  • Stuart Klipper just spent 10 days in Sweden working on the first of a 2-part (Winter/Summer) commission from Artipelag, a new museum situated on a large island near Stockholm. The work is being made in conjunction with a 2015 exhibition that Peter Galassi (formerly of MoMA) will be guest-curating. Its theme is 'land meeting water', hence the focus of the work was on the topography of the coastal reaches of that particular part of Sweden — Stockholms Archipelago (Skärgård). 

  • Colleen Plumb is showing at Dina Mitrani Gallery + The Screening Room as well as the Mitrani Warehouse from April 10-May 31, 2014. The opening Reception is Thursday, April 10, 7:00 pm.

  • Donald Weber is a finalist for the 2014 Scotiabank Photography Award and is in Embedded, a two-person exhibition with Dima Gavrysh at Circuit Gallery in Toronto from April 10-May 3. The Opening Reception is Thursday, April 10, from 6:00-9:00 p.m. and there is an Artist's Talk + Discussion (moderated by Sara Matthews) Saturday, April 12 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm.

  • Tatsuro Kiuchi's 2013 Masters illustrations are just out in Golf Digest April issue - he wrote an article about it on Drawger.

  • Michelle Muldrow is in Garden of Eden at Fallen Fruit in Los Angeles, a group show opening on Wednesday, April 16. 

  • William Powhida's solo show, Overculture, at Postmasters Gallery in NYC is open through April 19 and got a great review in the Village Voice.
