Corner View: Street Photography

I wasn't able to take photos specifically for today's corner view, so here are a few I snapped the other week in Vail. We have much more snow now, thankfully! The polar bear is by my quite talented friend Karl.
Please see many other corner views by starting at Jane's place, here.

A Few From Sotheby's

Ahhh, these are a few of the pieces up for auction at Sotheby's next month...

in their 20th Century Design Sale. I'd love to see them in person. And then I'd love to have them. They are: a Tony Duquette "Marsan" chair, an Emile Galle two-tiered table, a group of Dimitri Omersa footstools, a George Nakashima sideboard, and a Handel "Rose Blossoms" table lamp.

Olympic Break...and Lonny

Ummm... Apparently we've interrupted our regularly scheduled programming for the Winter Olympics! I'm hooked. And, I am late to the newest Lonny, but it's a really good one...If you haven't devoured it already, you should definitely take a look for yourself. I hope you are having a terrific week!

Corner View: Repurposed

It may be the only repurposed thing in our home... I bought it already repurposed. It was a Canadian grain scale. It has been my coffee table in six homes since 1987, when I found it at an antique show in NYC. Actually, I found it in Toronto during a cold November visit, but went back to buy it from the same guy (for $400--a lot for me back then) when he showed in NY two weeks later. It still works: if you get over 200 lbs. on it, the scale tips. I do love it.
Please see the many other corner views from around the world here.

Nathan Abels Exhibit at Denver's Rule Gallery

Kairos, Acrylic on Panel, 36 x 48"

Happy Friday! I'm so excited! Starting today through March 20th, those of us in the Denver area will go see the solo exhibit of new works by Nathan Abels, The Denver Post's Emerging Artist of 2009. "Natural Causes", with its opening reception tonight at the Rule Gallery, is sure to be a huge success for this significant young talent. "Kairos" is one of the works to be unveiled and I can't wait to take it in. Nathan describes his show as follows:
The works in "Natural Causes" explore the landscape and its inhabitants with each image depicting a visual pause in an ongoing event. What I am capturing in these paused moments is a sense of "straining at particles of light in the midst of great darkness."(Keats)
Murmer, Graphite, Charcoal and Pastel on Paper, 24 x 20"

Passage, Acrylic on Panel, 24 x 48"

Nathan will exhibit ten works in "Natural Causes." And in conjunction with his solo show, he is also curating a group exhibition featuring site-specific work by Mindy Bray, paintings from New York artists Jason Stopa and Eric LoPresti, photographs by German photographer Alexander Binder, works on paper by Alan Kitchen, and new bronze work by Yoshitomo Saito. Click here for a preview, and below is all the info you'll need to get yourself there...Don't miss it!

Corner View: Sweets

Sweet cupcakes for a birthday...My child's 5th birthday is tomorrow. Stop me before I cry...
He will have a celebration of life at his Montessori, and he also brings in treats of his choice for their lunch dessert. He chose cupcakes. I did not make these (the treat must come from a commercial kitchen). They came from batter.
And her photos are so much better:Please enjoy other sweet corner views by visiting the right side bar here.

beautiful second photo by Liz Rakoff of batter.

Mary Corita

Time for some COLOR! Via Lena Corwin, we have the serigraphs of Sister Mary Corita, these from the late 1950s and '60s. Wow...
and my personal favorite...

From The Corita Art Center:

Corita Kent, also known as Sister Mary Corita, gained international fame for her vibrant serigraphs during the 1960s and 1970s. A Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, she ran the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College until 1968 when she left the Order and moved to Boston. Corita's art reflects her spirituality, her commitment to social justice, her hope for peace, and her delight in the world that takes place all around us.

Thanks so much to Drawn! and Lena Corwin for putting these out there.
