An Extraordinary Autumn                           2010
Magic and Mysteries
Jeff OC 120 flip

It's impossible not to be amazed when the trees here in New England begin to change from green into yellows, red, and oranges. M. C. Escher believed that the beauty of the world is often hidden from us, and that discovering those hidden wonders was one of the great tasks of an artist.
   Here at Artists' Market we celebrate change by changing things in our gallery every day. This week Bijou Graphique sent us a collection of jewelry that is both elegant and artistic. We've rediscovered some vintage views of Norwalk, New Canaan, and Wilton, and have been creating frames that will last so far into the future that we feel like we are creating something eternal when we finish a project in our frameshop.
   We take pride in being able to show things by some of America's finest craftspeople, and I love the fact that we actually make things ourselves with skilled design and labor. You'll always find something unsual when you come in, and we'll be looking forward to seeing you because our customers are our favorite people.
    All the best,

M.C. Escher's Finest Woodcuts

M. C. Escher woodcuts: "Day & Night", "Fish & Frogs" "The Beehive" and "Concentric Fish"
Day Night three small

Artists' Market has the largest collection of fine prints by M. C. Escher in our gallery's history. Ranging from the masterpiece 'Day and Night' to some of his rarest miniatures, each of these prints holds a key to Escher's magic. 'The Beehive' illustrated above is a perfect example of a practically unknown woodcut that unexpectedly unlocks mysteries as it is studied closer. Escher prints have proved ever more valuable, especially when searching for stability in economic uncertainly. As evidence of Escher's enduring interest, there is a wonderful exhibit of his artwork at the New Britain Museum of American Art ("American?" I asked... "American's love Escher!." they replied). This is a rare opportunity to see a comprehensive collection of Escher's art, including unique drawings and printing blocks. Jeffrey Price will give a tour of the collection October 14th beginning at 5:30 PM. The  museum is a Connecticut treasure, not to be missed. On view through November 14.

Our catalog of M. C. Escher prints is an on-going project, and there are many new additions and revisions in the latest version, titled "Amazing Images."  The meaning of 'The Beehive' is just one of the many Escher stories you'll find in this 70-page collection of images and essays.

Here and Gone: Enhanced Views of the PastWall Street Norwalk
Wall Street, Norwalk 1944

"Four Jills in a Jeep" was playing at the Norwalk Theatter and all the cars were painted in pastel technicolor . Combining the lastest imaging techniques with authentic scenes from a century ago, this series of remarkable enlargements of vintage postcards of our area in the first decade of the Twentieth Century captures moments in time which surrounded us years ago. Conceived and printed by Jeffrey Price, these views of Norwalk, New Canaan, Wilton, and New York City have been artfully enlarged to surround us in a style that has slipped away. A selection of these remarkable pictures will be installed as a permanent exhibition at Norwalk City Hall this autumn. Exclusively on view at Artists' Market.
