Seeing Is Believing

Is it any wonder that viewers approach the exotic photography of Italian artist Roberto Kusterle and ask the inevitable question, “How did he do that?”

 

Given Kusterle’s own fascination with surreal scenarios and hybrid realities, it’s only natural that one would respond to this illusionist-for that is what the photographer surely is—in this manner.

         

After all, art and magic depend greatly on a...

‘Everything Is Changing’

“It’s been 13 years since buying it” Linda Meigs said. “Little by little, with a lot of help, we’ve been able to restore the historic Florence Mill. It is now a National Register Historic Site.”

Owners Linda and John Meig’s commitment to the preservation of this historic structure and the creation of its ArtLoft Gallery in 1998 entered a second stage nearly a decade later with the advent of the Connor Meigs Art...

(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.

 Yet, thanks to modernists like van Gogh, Cezanne and Whistler,  painting one’s likeness continued to be a telling picture of not only individual personalities, but of art and the times.

 The history of portraiture...
