David Taylor: Aldrich Museum

Monday, March 9th, 2009

David Taylor has a show at the Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield, CT.  The exhibition is photographs and video installations entitled Frontier/Frontera looking at the border between Mexico and the US.  A document through the eyes of a somewhat neutral but impassioned viewer of the land and the people on both sides.  Regardless of your political position, the work shows us something about us.  I was particularly taken with the video work with three multiple monitor installations.  The museum is a marvelous jewel of a pocket museum with about ten galleries of first rate current work, including Taylor’s.

David Hilliard

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

Recent work (2008) of David Hilliard at Carroll & Sons Gallery at SOWA in boston is first rate.  His work continues to evolve and is beautiful to boot.

Brightening one’s day

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

This came across my desktop recently, from the collection of the New Bedford Whaling Museum.  I was simply unable (under the guise of the Social Landscape) to not share it.  Enjoy.  The Museum is truly a gem of a museum in New Bedford, MA, former center of the whaling trade.

Oswald Gallery, Jackson, WY

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

In Jackson, WY at the Oswald Gallery, Cary Tijerina is holding forth and is showing a fine selection of work including Dylan Vitone, Kelli Connell, and Jon Stuart among others.  While not exactly known for first rate fine photography Jackson is blessed to have the Oswalds in residence there.  The gallery is large enough to have several galleries and devote a space to contemproary artists and a fine showing of collectable photographs as well.  Cary is a knowledgeable, engaging and articulate host.  When in Jackson and tired of the extraordinary landscape and weather, spend some time at Oswald Gallery.
