Sarah Charlesworth's 1980 Series STILLS Reprised at the Art Institute of ChicagoSarah Charlesworth's 1980 Series STILLS Reprised at the Art Institute of Chicago
August 29, 2014

The very title “Stills” evokes a movie still, or a moment frozen in time. These images are particularly haunting in an era when selfies and social media have partly eclipsed the tabloid press. These over-lifesize images of frozen moments ask us to consider how our most private, existential experiences will play out in the public eye. (more...)

August 25, 2014

Invitations to parties and galas at magnificent private homes in the Hamptons are always coveted but the hottest ducat last week was the lecture by architect, historian Gary Lawrance, co-author with Anne Surchin of Houses of the Hamptons: 1800-1930 held in one of the largest private residences ever built on the East End, Whitefield formerly known as The Orchard. Sponsored by the Southampton Historical Museum, the talk quickly sold out and several hundred guests filled the baronial music room at the sprawling estate. With its soaring, carved mahogany wood walls, coffered ceilings with hand painted embellishments and a fireplace that one could stand inside, the Music Room was the ideal setting for a discussion about the Gilded Age. Scroll down for photos from the event! (more...)
