On October 17th, Offering from Martin Wittfooth (interviewed) will be opening at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York (529 West 20th Street). The exhibition will feature all new paintings, including this 73″ x 100″ beast of piece seen above entitled Rainsong. We love the new burst of color seen in this new imagery and can’t wait to see what else he has planned. But for now, check out the Woodstock-based artist putting the finishing touches on another piece seen below… Discuss Martin Wittfooth here.
If you remember, we first shared with you this massive painting from Martin Wittfooth (interviewed) back in 2013.

Now, the image is available as a print here if you are interested in adding it to your collection. Sized at 30″ x 21″, the limited edition will be produced in a run of 50 and cost […]
Coming up in October of this year, Martin Wittfooth (interviewed) will be opening a solo show at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York. The last showing we attended in NY for the locally-based artist was back in 2011 (covered), so we are anxious to see what he has cooked up for an encore. From this glimpse he recently shared with his fans, it will certainly be a special show. Discuss Martin Wittfooth here.

Starting on October 30th, Yves Laroche in Montreal will be hosting a massive group exhibition entitled Égrégore. The term refers to a kind of group mind which is created when people consciously come together for a common purpose and was used in relation to the Montreal Surrealists, best known as Les Automatistes in the 40s. The resurrection of the idea in relation to geography and purpose is definitely appropriate to this show which will run through December 20th. Participating artists include SHAG, Van Arno, Anthony Ausgang, Liam […]
Coming up at the end of the next month, the Long Beach Museum of Art will be hosting an interesting group exhibition where 14 accomplished artists are asked to contribute one large scale painting from their careers which they deem as being pivotal.

The list of participants includes Esao Andrews, Sean Cheetham, Natalia Fabia, Alex Gross, James Jean, Josh Keyes, Mario Martinez, Greg Simkins, Nicola Verlato, Eric […]
