Openings: Thomas Campbell – “Ampersand” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Last Thursday saw the opening of Thomas Campbell’s first solo exhibition with the Joshua Liner Gallery, entitled Ampersand. The show’s title is apt given Campbell’s wide range of practice:  paintings & drawings & prints & quilts & gourds & bronzes… In addition, all of the works explode with colors & patterns & textures & characters & words. And although displaying such a diverse grouping of mediums and works together could have easily felt fragmented or visually overwhelming, Campbell is able to unite them all by […]

Previews: Thomas Campbell – “Ampersand” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Next Thursday (June 12th), Joshua Liner Gallery in New York will be opening a show from Thomas Campbell, his first with the gallery. Featuring painting, sculpture, original bronzes, and hand sewn works, Ampersand will let the California-based artist further explore the use of the gourd and its symbolism throughout his visual language. He states: “I feel there is a natural correlation between what I do and what I draw, [my drawings have] similar lines to the structure of gourds. I have been really drawn to them […]

Openings: “Tonight We Won’t Be Bored” – 10 Years Of V1 Gallery

With all the great art that is scattered all over the world, it’s not often that you can see works from prominent artists in your home town – and even less likely you see them side by side. That is exactly the scenario we have in Copenhagen at the V1 Gallery as they celebrate their 10 year anniversary with a massive group show entitled Tonight We Won’t Be Bored. Take for example the wall above that has pieces from Todd James, Futura, DearRainDrop, and Kenny Scharf that […]

Basel Week Switzerland ’10: Volta6

The last fair we attended while in Switzerland was Volta6, and although it was way across town from Art Basel (covered, part 1 and 2) and Scope (covered), in a somewhat industrial part of the city, we were glad we made the trek. Unlike VoltaNY (covered), Volta6 was not focused on single-artist booths, so the smaller fair offered visitors a large range of interesting emerging artists.

Preview: Saturday @ Phillips NYC

Last night, Phillips De Pury in New York City held a special preview of the lots from their Saturday sale coming up this weekend. AM loves Saturday @ Phillips because of its increased accessibility compared with other higher-end contemporary auctions, which are typically held on mid-week afternoons and evenings, making them difficult for most working people to attend. In addition, Phillips Saturday sales are known for a wide range of items, including a great selection of urban, street and other emerging art, as well as […]
