Fashioning Felt

The 11,000-year-old technique of felting is given a modern interpretation at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum's exhibition "Fashioning Felt" through September 7, 2009.

This exhibit, which showcases felt-works by more than 25 creatives in the fields of fashion, architecture, and product design, explores the origin and unique benefits of felt as well as past and present interpretations of the medium.

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.

In Memoriam of Dash Snow

KiptonART 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 friends.

Seattle Gallery 2

Seattle Gallery 3

To 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.
