Cezanne Maxur, Ruby Mazur and Miro Mazur.

WAIKIKI.- Legendary pop artist Ruby Mazur, best known as the creator of the original “mouth & tongue” image designed for The Rolling Stones, first used on the “Tumbling Dice” record sleeve in 1972, is currently celebrating the 50th Anniversary of his iconic image. As part of the 50th Anniversary celebration, Mazur has announced the opening of his own signature Ruby Mazur Gallery this past week in Waikiki, Honolulu on the Hawaiian island of Oahu.

Eli Wilner & Company frames important paintings for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Scandinavian furniture among star lots for Vintage & Modern Design auction at Ewbank’s San Francisco shines with new museums, restaurants and parks

Paul Cezanne’s ‘Victor Choquet,’ framed with a shaped and painted replica of a European period frame created by Eli Wilner & Company, in the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

RICHMOND, VA.- Eli Wilner & Company created period-appropriate replica frames for three important 19th century French paintings in the collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The paintings, by Paul Gauguin, Paul Cezanne, and Jacques Villon, are all important to the museum’s collection, but were enclosed with historically inaccurate or aesthetically unsuitable frames. The newly created replica frames are now on view in the galleries. In coordination with Dr. Sylvain Cordier, the Paul Mellon Curator and Head of the Department of European Art, frames were selected for each painting. For the painting by Paul Gauguin, ‘Still Life with Bowl,’ a hand-carved and gilded replica of an 18th century French style frame with a cross-hatched ground was selected. For Paul Cezanne’s ‘Victor Choquet,’ a shaped and painted replica of a European … More

SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Lately, it seems as if the news headlines from San Francisco have been negative, from the city’s homelessness crisis and highly publicized recall elections to the area’s astronomical cost-of-living and worsening fire seasons. But San Francisco is still San Francisco. The fog still rolls in from the Pacific to blanket the city’s jumbled hills, the sunset still flames crimson behind the Golden Gate Bridge and the smell of salt and eucalyptus still hits the moment you step outside of San Francisco International Airport. Always a city for lovers of the outdoors, pandemic restrictions led to the near-universal embrace of an indoor-outdoor city life. And at its core, the city’s spirit, a heady brew of creativity, progressivism and … More

Carleton Varney, interior designer known as Mr. Color, dies at 85 kaufmann repetto presents Pae White’s seventh solo exhibition at the gallery Karma opens an exhibition of sculpture and painting by Thaddeus Mosley and Frank Walter

Carleton Varney holds a book by interior designer Dorothy Draper, who he trained under, in West Palm Beach, Fla., Jan. 21, 2012. John Ricksen/The New York Times.

by Penelope Green

NEW YORK, NY.- Carleton Varney, the ebullient interior designer whose enthusiastic use of color in hotels, castles, palaces and the habitats of film and theater royalty — and one president — earned him the nickname Mr. Color, died July 14 in Palm Beach, Florida. He was 85. His son Sebastian confirmed the death, in a hospital, but did not specify the cause. Varney was trained by the maximalist decorator Dorothy Draper, who was known for her Hollywood Regency flourishes — enormous stripes, hot colors and swirls of plaster relief — and whose company he ended up buying in the 1960s. (Describing Draper’s style, columnists typically became entangled in hyperbole: “Close your eyes and imagine t … More


Green Dust on Red Leaves, 2022. Dichroic coating on glazed ceramic, 45,7 x 45,7 x 3,8 cm / 18 x 18 x 1.5 in.

MILAN.- kaufmann repetto is presenting Pae White’s seventh solo exhibition at the gallery demonstrating the artist’s ongoing exploration of diverse materials, techniques, and technologies, and for this exhibition, the medium of clay and its broad range of applications. Intrigued by the phrase “Attractive Nuisance,” – a legal term used to reference a property that is so seductive it becomes dangerous to the public – White considers the nuances of excessive beauty and leans into seduction and attraction. Beauty, as well as objects of desire, manifests itself in several different sculptural forms that investigate the depth and chaos of iridescence throughout this exhibition. Desire is by nature unattainable, a tension that is evinced in Pae White’s recent ceramic works. Throughout the gallery, a series of elusively colored serpent-like forms are placed above the viewer’s eyesight … More


Thaddeus Mosley, Perge Modo, 2020, bronze, 87 × 56 × 29 inches; 221 x 142.2 x 73.7 cm

NEW YORK, NY.- Karma is presenting Sanctuary, an exhibition of sculpture and painting by Thaddeus Mosley and Frank Walter. Sanctuary spotlights the work of two artists both born in 1926. Thaddeus Mosley, an art teacher and son of a coal miner, from New Castle, Pennsylvania is known for his outsized abstract sculpture. Frank Walter, born in the Caribbean island of Antigua and known for his paintings and wood works infused with the beauty of it’s land, sea and sky. Together, these artists share their vision of sanctuary, each deeply informed by their relationship to the land. Largely self-taught, Mosley specializes in sculpting salvaged wood—fallen trees, abandoned building material, timber from Pennsylvania sawmills—into large-scale abstract forms. He finds inspiration in the art of the African diaspora, contemporary city life, nature and jazz. His influences … More

Edward Feiner, 75, dies; Revolutionized the look of federal buildings Jack Nicholson’s Joker Costume from 1989’s ‘Batman’ scares up $125,000 at Heritage Auctions Pace welcomes Virginia Jaramillo

by Clay Risen

NEW YORK, NY.- Edward A. Feiner, who as the chief architect of the U.S. government revolutionized the public image of countless federal agencies by hiring renowned architects to design hundreds of courthouses, government laboratories, border stations and office buildings, died July 1 at a nursing facility in Falls Church, Virginia. He was 75. His wife, Frances Feiner, said the cause was brain cancer. Although Edward Feiner was trained as an architect, he did not do much actual design work during his nearly 35-year public career. He spent most of that time at the General Services Administration, essentially the federal government’s landlord. It was Feiner’s task to oversee the construction of new buildings and the renovation of old ones, starting with the search for an architecture firm. He organized outside panels to sort through proposals to produce a shortlist, then personally … More


Jack Nicholson “The Joker” Screen Worn Signature Costume and Hat from Tim Burton’s Batman (Warner Bros., 1989).

DALLAS, TX.- To paraphrase Jack Nicholson’s Joker: Wait ’til you get a load of this. Heritage Auctions’ two-day Hollywood & Entertainment Signature® Auction wrapped Saturday night after realizing $4,330,594. And among the top lots in the July 22-23 event was the purple suit Nicholson wore onscreen as The Clown Prince of Crime in Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman. The outfit, perfect for dancing with the devil in the pale moonlight, sold for $125,000 after a prolonged bidding war. This, too, was the auction that featured George Clooney’s (in)famous Batman suit worn in 1997’s Batman & Robin – the one with the “nipples on the costume,” Burton recently said when asked why he didn’t make a third Batman movie. That titillating outfit found a new Batcave Saturday afternoon when it sold for $57,500. More than 2,330 bidders from around the world participated in the event – on, over the phone and … More

Open now at The Museum Of__ : Dana Van Horn, CAUGHT Paul Sorvino, master of the mild-mannered mobster, dies at 83 GRIMM opens ‘The Kingfisher’s Wing’, a group exhibition curated by Tom Morton

Installation view.

SAN DIEGO, CA.- On view is a selection of 441 realist portraits by Dana Van Horn. He completes one mugshot in monochromatic watercolors every evening between 9:30 and 11:00 PM, which are arranged here in columns of seven, for each day of the week. Van Horn began this practice as a nocturnal ritual in early 2021 after seeing a news article about colorizing 19th and early 20th century Australian mugshots. The emergence of mugshots became standard practice in the 1840s, each photographed in a style which has remained uniform in presentation and composition. Fascinated by the endless variation of human physiognomy, Van Horn picks his subjects mostly for formal artistic qualities, removed from the context of their arrest. Van Horn was born in San Diego, CA and currently lives and works in Allentown, PA. The Museum Of__ is a small Southern Californian museum devoted … More

by Anita Gates

NEW YORK, NY.- Paul Sorvino, a tough-guy actor — and operatic tenor and figurative sculptor — known for his roles as calm and often courteously quiet but dangerous men in films such as “Goodfellas” and television shows such as “Law & Order,” died Monday. He was 83. His publicist, Roger Neal, confirmed the death, at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. No specific cause was given, but Neal said Sorvino “had dealt with health issues over the past few years.” Sorvino was the father of Mira Sorvino, who won a best supporting actress Oscar for Woody Allen’s “Mighty Aphrodite” (1995). In her acceptance speech, she said her father had “taught me everything I know about acting.” “Goodfellas” (1990), Martin Scorsese’s acclaimed Mafia epic, came along when Sorvino was 50 and decades into his film career. His character, Paulie … More

NEW YORK, NY.- GRIMM is presenting The Kingfisher’s Wing, a group exhibition curated by Tom Morton drawing together paintings by Gabriella Boyd, Varda Caivano, Louise Giovanelli, Matthew Krishanu, Francesca Mollett, William Monk, Ryan Mosley, Christian Quin Newell, Mary Ramsden, Tim Stoner and Phoebe Unwin. The exhibition is the third collaboration between GRIMM and Morton, following the exhibitions Recent British Sculpture and Recent British Painting presented by the gallery in Amsterdam in 2011 and 2012 respectively. The Kingfisher’s Wing takes its title from a motif in TS Eliot’s Burnt Norton (1936), a poem that is concerned with how we might live in the present moment, when it is both haunted by our memories of the past, and is forever merging seamlessly into the future: After the kingfisher’s wing Has answered light to light, and is silent, the light is still at the still point of the turning world.

genz-1.jpgGen Z designers made it big on this app. Now They’re graduating.
NEW YORK, NY.- When Shirley Tang started selling handmade clothing in 2020, she knew just where to do so online: Depop, an app at the forefront of social shopping. Tang, 22, began offering $100 to $200 hand-draped mesh and woven tops and skirts in her Depop shop, where her following grew to 24,000. Customers, most of them around her age, traded messages and commentary on the app about her creations as her store caught the attention of magazines and Grammy-winning artists, including SZA and Kali Uchis. Her business surged. But, this year, Tang began focusing on selling her clothing brand, ORIENS, exclusively on her website. Depop’s popularity had led her to make the same items again and again, she said, hemming her in creatively. And she was tired of the app charging a 10% commission on every item sold. “I wanted that independent … More

LONDON.- Just in time for the summer holidays, King’s Cross has today launched a London first – a spectacular mini-city beautifully and humorously painted across the pedestrian expanse of Granary Square and down into Coal Drops Yard by world-renowned street artist, Peter Gibson – aka Roadsworth. A giant cycling track that mimics real London road systems on a smaller scale, ‘Natural Cycle’ is complete with streets, crossings and roundabouts and is enlivened by animals and plants that you can see in the local neighbourhood including Camley Street Natural Park. The installation has an important purpose at its heart – to help children become confident cyclists in a safe environment before they go into a real-life situation and to promote sustainable travel from a young age. To celebrate – and more importantly put the new summer … More

michael-1.jpgThe Michael C. Carlos Museum presents ‘Indigo Prayers: A Creation Story’
ATLANTA, GA.- On March 19, the Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University is presenting the exhibition, Indigo Prayers: A Creation Story, a series of paintings by local Atlanta artist, Charmaine Minniefield, inspired by her time in the Gambia, West Africa searching for her grandmother’s ancestral lines. The resulting body of work builds on an ongoing exploration of the Ring Shout, an African American practice of resistance whose West African origins predate enslavement. This full-bodied rhythmic prayer was taught to Minniefield by her great-grandmother. It was performed by her ancestors during enslavement as a way to secretly preserve their African identity. Minniefield’s work explores indigenous pigments like indigo, crushed oyster shells, and mahogany bark as evidence of cultural preservation through time and across the Middle … More

mantle-1.jpg‘Finest Known’ 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle rookie card expected to sell for $10 million+ at Heritage Auctions
DALLAS, TX.- “Mantle rookie card sold for record 50G.” That was the headline in the New York Post on July 2, 1991, when Alan Rosen – identified only as a “card maven” – announced that he had sold a 1952 Mickey Mantle Topps card to an anonymous buyer for $50,000. Rosen, known in the sports-card hobby as Mr. Mint, had wanted $57,500 for the card, which the paper reported “looked as if it had just come from the pack.” But the buyer bargained him down to $50,000 – $500 more than the previous world record for a 1952 Mantle, one of the most coveted cards in the world. When he sold the card 31 years ago, Rosen provided the buyer with a letter that said the 1952 Mantle card was “in my estimation the finest known example in the world.” Yet for decades the purchaser of the card remained anonymous, while the ungraded card remained out … More

seagull-1.jpg‘Seagull’ review: Blurring the lines of fiction
NEW YORK, NY.- If only I could find someone who loves me enough to gift me a dead bird in a brown paper bag. I jest, of course. The wounded young protagonist who delivers this confounding gift in Anton Chekhov’s “The Seagull” communicates his thoughts and feelings through wild symbols — “new forms” of art, he says — like this particular one of the avian variety. Theater troupe Elevator Repair Service — known for its ambitious, innovative takes on classics like “The Great Gatsby” (“Gatz”) — attempts to meet that challenge in its latest work, “Seagull.” But this highly stylized contemporary production, which recently opened at NYU Skirball in a nearly three-hour production, feels like a series of ideas that never quite cohere. The beginnings of those ideas are promising, though: the toppling of the fourth wall, the meta references to the … More

Simpson will be on view July 23 through Sept. 11, 2022 at the Princeton University Art Museum’s Art@Bainbridge gallery. “Simpson’s materially and texturally rich sculptures invite us into dialogue, seeking an empathetic response that can pull us out of ourselves,” said James Steward, Nancy A. Nasher–David J. Haemisegger, Class of 1976, Director. “They look back at us, demanding introspection and acknowledgment of our actions.” Simpson’s work interrogates the human condition as an accumulation of lived experiences, distilling specific aspects of such moments in her own life into each sculpture. Through her work, Simpson seeks the tools to heal the damages … More
