(Re) Vision Quest

What does it say about a young college graduate who, rather than attemping to enter the corporate or professional world, pursues a career in the rather esoteric medium of ceramic art?

It must say that money, security and “settling down” hold little interest to said artist. What does it then say about this person who interrupts his study with an internationally known ceramicist for the sake of a float trip down...

From Vuillard to Vogel

 

From classical busts of emperors and Renaissance paintings by van Eyck, Holbein and da Vinci, to Rembrandt’s Baroque portraiture, portraits were a significant element of art’s earliest history.

Gift Horses

For many people, artists included, horses have represented little more than an object, albeit one of beauty and strength, whether on a field of honor, a Western landscape or racetrack.
