FEATURED GALLERY Heist, New York
Front of Heist Gallery, New York
KiptonART is taking the opportunity to showcase some of our favorite emerging talents in the gallery world. Take a moment and engage yourself with Talia Eisenberg, owner and director of Heist Gallery, 27 Essex St. New York, New York. Talia takes time to answer the pressing questions we ask every gallery owner.
Why did you decide to open a gallery in New York?
I always knew I would have a gallery some day. My European
grandmother opened her own in Nebraska back in the early 60's. Growing
up she exposed my little brother and I to the world of art. It was
always an important part of our travels to go to a museum and the
cultural events of whatever city we were in. I would help her sell art
in her gallery at a young age. It just seems natural to have a gallery
especially since she passed away a few months ago and it is a true
testament to her life's work. I am proud to honor this wonderful person
in this way. Read Eisenberg's answers to our questions here.

The KiptonART Family
|In Memoriam of Dash Snow
would like dedicate this newsletter to Dash Snow who
passed away Monday in New York City. Snow was a star amongst his peers
in the New York art world and was a featured artist in the 2006 Whitney Biennial. We send our deepest condolences to his family and
commemorate the death of Andrew Wyeth earlier this year, the Seattle
Art Museum pulled together a very focused tribute to the artist. The
exhibit features seven paintings that focus on Wyeth's life in Chadds
Ford, Pa., where he was raised, spent most of his adult years, and
where he died. Of the 7 paintings total, 5 are of "Helga", a German
woman who worked as a care-giver next door. Wyeth painted Helga
hundreds of times in the 1970s and 1980s, while at the same time
keeping it hidden from his wife.
