There was a little time before my flight today, and I was able to make it into the board room at TF Green. Gillian hung this wall piece several months ago. It looks great in the light bouncing off the 747s.
Gillian Christy installed the “Indoor, Outdoor” Exhibition at Turchin Center for the Visual Arts at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. The show will be on exhibit May 1- August 29, 2009. She will have work in the Mayer Gallery and several public artworks around the art center. If you are in the area, Wednesday July 8, 12 noon -1 pm there will be a Lunch and Learn Lecture and discussion of her work led by Hank Foreman, Director and Chief Curator.
Gillian Christy and I spent several fridged hours mining the Chelsea gallery scene in NYC. I am disappointed with the quality of the work as a whole. I fear beauty and craft have truly become unbecoming to the art aficionados of our time. We did happen upon several unique exhibits at Yvon Lambert, Paula Cooper and, of course, Gargosian Gallery.
This past weekend I was part of the… expert… team that relocated American Dreams by Gillian Christy from the Arsenal Center for the Arts to South County, Rhode Island. It was amazing seeing this sculpture move from a urban to forest setting in a matter of hours. Luke Randall was kind enough to give this sculpture a home for several months before it makes a move again to Boone, NC for Gillian’s upcoming show starting May 1st.
