Weekly Roundup

Hello! It’s been a long time since I’ve written a Weekly Roundup post and I miss it! My work week (Tuesday through Saturday) went by in such a quick blur. The weekend was nice because it is finally warm and sunny enough to not wear a jacket. I had been feeling that the rain and […]

Weekly Roundup

How’s everyone handling Daylight Saving? I’m beginning this post on Sunday morning, after an incredibly long and grueling work week. I still ended up going to bed very early most week nights, so nothing to report there. On the bright side, I started waking up at 6am, so I’ve been having very productive mornings (I […]

Georgia O’Keeffe’s New York

These are some of Georgia O’Keeffe’s lesser-known works. I first encountered one of O’Keeffe’s urban landscapes at Vassar’s Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center (link to the painting here), and I didn’t even recognize it as an O’Keeffe until I read the wall label.

Lessons from the Art World: How to Go Gallery Hopping in Chelsea

Meg Webster at Paula Cooper Gallery in May – July 2016 Why are people scared of the New York City art world? Don’t answer that question! I already know. It probably has to do with how it has been portrayed in newspapers, movies, and TV shows for years. How we are made to seem like cold, […]

The Art World: Where are We Now?

I’m an extremely neurotic person who often wakes up in the middle of the night to have conversations, in my head, with myself. Tonight, my brain asked, “if you were to be alive 100 years from now, and looked back in time at this point in Art History…what would you think?” And I thought to […]
