Master Drawings At the Clark

Art: ‘Drawn To Greatness’

It would be a challenge to choose the highlights from among the more than 150 drawings that make up “Drawn to Greatness: Masters Drawings from the Thaw Collection,” which is currently on view at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown. This difficulty speaks not to a dearth of notable works, but rather the tremendous abundance that have been brought together for this outstanding show.

Finding Beauty in Everyday Objects

Art

An enormous pair of scissors lies behind one window of Sharon’s Standard Space gallery, a large carpenter’s rule  stands upright, partially unfolded behind the other. These ordinary objects, rendered large scale, demand that you look at them in a new way, as functional yet beautiful objects.
 
    Inside the gallery, four sculptures rest on bases, while wonderfully detailed etchings and intaglio prints — only one is an ink jet print with black and red pencil notations — hang precisely on the wall.

Reconsidering Andy Warhol

Art: ‘People Are Beautiful’

If you have never given Andy Warhol much credence as an artist, only as a self-promoting showman, a visit to Vassar College’s Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center should change your mind. “People are Beautiful” is the first of five exhibitions of Warhol’s work that will run successively, sometimes concurrently, at five academic museums in the Hudson Valley through November 2018. (Google Warhol x5 for details.)

Magazzino Museum

Art

On a snowy day last week my friend Anne and I visited Magazzino, the new Post War Italian Art Museum in Cold Spring, NY (about an hour drive from Salisbury).  Considering that we both live in the area, we were late checking it out. The art world cognoscenti  have been making trips since it opened last summer, proclaiming it “totally surprising,” “divine,” and “an amazing gift to the area.”

Penetrating Paintings At Hunt Library

Art

Phyllis Nauts is a woman of intellectual depth and disciplined sensitivity. You see and feel both in her show of paintings, “Faces and Figments,” now at the David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village. 
Nauts was reared in New York City, went to both the Brearley School and Smith College then studied at the great Institut d’Etudes Politiques in Paris. For over 20 years she was a psychotherapist in New York and San Francisco. Her work with patients led her to her favorite art subject: the human face, both realistic and abstract.
