I am so digging this modern abstract/expressionism art movement. I wasn’t always a big fan of this art medium. I never got into Jackson Pollock or Sam Gilliam. I did not really see the value in this art form. However, with the modern take and my personal growth in the art world, I see the the purpose for art like this. I went back and re-looked at Sam Gilliam’s April 4, 1969 and understood the sadness in the colors saturation and how this related to the Assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s funny how things come full circle. Enjoy! 🙂

New American Paintings/Blog

It’s been far too long since I posted pics from our neighboring galleries in Boston’s South End. There is a lot to see, but three exceptional shows this month that I wanted to share. First, I stopped by Howard Yezerski to see the Sam Trioli show, Brumaire. Then, a quick jog to Carroll and Sons to see the Ambreen Butt’s Beyond The Ideas of Rightness Or Wrongness There Is A Field, I’ll Meet You There. I wrapped up the quick morning stroll by taking some photos at Steven Zevitas Gallery, which happens to adjoin our offices here at The Open Studios Press. On exhibit here are drawings by Kansas-based artist, Michael Krueger. – Andrew Katz, Associate Publisher

Feminist Street Art in Philly

Hey all, 

Just want to share this totally awesome street art piece. I can’t wait to encounter this on the street. I wish these wheat pasting(s) were everywhere!!!!! They are so on the money about the daily harassment for a female in Philly. I just don’t think men understand how it feels to be constantly bother then emotional abused because you show no interest. I don’t understand what happened to a time where men were gentleman. Shame!

Thomas Jackson – From glow sticks to cheese balls

I really like this. It’s so creative. I thought it was photo shopped but they look like actually installations. Example of abstract art! 🙂

Global Art Junkie

These hovering sculptures by Brooklyn based photographer Thomas Jackson were inspired by the self-organizing, “emergent” systems in nature, such as schooling fish and flocking birds. “By constructing the pieces of unexpected materials,” he says, “and placing them in environments where they seem least to belong, I aim to tweak the margins of our visual vocabulary and to invite fresh interpretations of everyday things.” (Above: Glow Sticks #1)
