Columbia Museum explores 'A Life in Art'

April 18, 2019 - Dr. Tom Mack for Aiken Standard Art and Humanities

Our country, particularly New York City, became the center of the Western art world after World War II with the advent of abstract expressionism. No American artist looms larger in that movement than Jackson Pollock, and there is no more important Pollock work than his 1943 “Mural.”

Complementing the landmark display of this modern masterpiece at the Columbia Museum of Art is a temporary exhibition of works collected over six decades by South Carolina residents Dwight and Sue Emanuelson. Entitled “A Life in Art,” the exhibition features nearly seventy pieces, from major abstract expressionist paintings to iconic objects of midcentury design.

What is the genesis of this collection? Dwight Emanuelson began collecting art when he was just in his twenties, living in New York City and working as an investment advisor. He had a personal relationship with many of the artists whose work he purchased: “I’d help them manage their money, and they’d show me their art.”

Mike Solomon Included in "On the Grid" at VSOP Projects

April 15, 2019

VSOP Projects
Greenport, New York
April 13 - May 19, 2019

As a formal device, the grid defines and divides space, serving as a framework for which a given subject might be expressed. As an art historical element, the grid has been employed as a compositional guide in renaissance painting, an ideal in the Bauhaus, and a form to be obliterated by the abstract expressionists and action painters. In many ways, modern life has been influenced by grids, from city planning to microchips, and yet, for every practicality imposed on the utilitarian x and y axis, there is a possibility for chance, spontaneity, and art.

Artists participating in "On the Grid" include Sabra Moon Elliot, Darlene Charneco, Bastienne Schmidt, Christine Sciulli, Mike Solomon, Colin Goldberg, Drew Shiflett, Patience Pollock, Daniel Sullivan, Robert Otto Epstein, Ryan DaWalt, and Josh Cohen.

News:  Paint, abstract art, focus of James Little curated exhibition at Art Students League, March 21, 2019 - NADINE MATTHEWS

Paint, abstract art, focus of James Little curated exhibition at Art Students League

March 21, 2019 - NADINE MATTHEWS

In an interview in BOMB magazine a few years ago, artist James Little declared, “I choose to be abstract because that’s where I found my voice, because it best reflects my self-determination and free will. That’s why I love abstraction, it forces us to see things in a different way. It forces us to come out of what we have been trained and conditioned to see. It forces us to use another part of our brain.”

Little’s love for abstract art is now literally on display at the Art Students League, where he is also an instructor. Titled “New York-Centric,” it is an exhibition curated by Little that will run through May 1. As described in promotional materials from the 144 year old institution, “New York-Centric” is, “An exhibition dedicated to color, color theory, design, expressionism. All of the work on display was produced in New York during the latter half of the 20th century or the beginning of the 21st century.”
