So often we see lists of the “all time” top 10 songs or albums, usually conducted by a magazine or a radio station. As big a fan of fantasy art, I’m really in love with this painting. I enjoy the romantic and mysterious depiction of the beautiful maiden all aglow in moonlight with a wreath of flowers upon her head. The tiny people encircling her add fun and frolic to this piece. You can almost hear their voices and see them dance. National Gallery of Art – An excellent domain of artworks by artists from America and other parts of the world as well, the National Gallery of Art was established in … Read the rest

Whether it is paintings, films, music or more, artists are invited to submit their work to Visit Vacaville.

The Almanor Arts Show celebrates its 51st anniversary on Saturday July 31st and Sunday Aug. 1st on the Collins Pine Lawn in Chester CA. “We are overjoyed to be offering this fantastic event again after a break in 2020 because of covid shutdowns,” said Plumas Arts Events Coordinator Jennifer Ready.

The show was first hosted on the shores of Lake Almanor in 1969 by a group of Almanor Basin resident artists. The Almanor Arts Show was “gifted” to Plumas Arts in the early 1980s when the artists that had managed the show since 1969 felt it was appropriate to transfer show management to the county’s new local art agency which had been established in 1981.

When the Almanor Art Show outgrew its original home on the lakeshore, it was hosted for two years adjacent to the Collins Pine Lawn. In 1988, with the support of the Collins Pine management,

When Hunter Biden’s art is sold later this year, the public won’t know who’s buying his paintings —and neither will Hunter Biden, the White House, or his father, President Biden.  According to a White House official, any buyer’s identity will be kept secret by the gallery owner.    

However, buyers may choose to make their identities known. 

Another source familiar with the sales arrangement told CBS News that the New York gallery owner who is showing Hunter Biden’s paintings, George Bergès, will have the ability to reject offers that raise alarms.  Potential conflicts could include offers above the asking price from buyers seeking political influence with the Biden family. 

Bergès estimates that Hunter Biden’s work could fetch between $75,000 and $500,000 per painting, according to a spokesperson for the gallery.  According to Artnet, Biden has no formal artistic training and has only begun working as an artist full time in

The 19th Annual Art in the Garden festival is happening this August at the Ballard P-Patch (8527 25th Ave NW).

The yearly festival will have an extra reason to celebrate this year, as the Ballard P-Patch has been secured for future generations thanks to donations and public funding.

The gardeners of the 44-year-old p-patch were at risk of losing their small plot when Our Redeemers announced plans to sell the site in 2019. Our Redeemers had been leasing the plot to the City of Seattle for just $1 per year, for over four decades, but announced plans to sell it so they could pay for renovations in the church.

The p-patch caretakers were busy fundraising all last year, and in December, received a large donation from Amazon to help secure the garden for years to come.

This year’s Art in the Garden will take place August 7 from 10 a.m.

Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, one of the most closely watched curators working in Germany today, will soon lead one of the country’s most important contemporary art museums. The Berlin-based curator will be the next director of the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, which focuses in part on presenting the work of artists from outside Europe. He will begin in the post in January 2023, succeeding Bernd M. Scherer, who has led the museum since 2006 and will retire next year.

In a statement, Monika Grütters, Germany’s Minister of State for Culture and the Media, said, “As an internationally sought-after renowned curator and cultural manager, Bonaventure Ndikung is a perfect fit for the Haus der Kulturen der Welt. With his excellent network, his scientific education, and his passion for art, he is virtually predestined to further develop this institution, which is unique in Europe. In doing so, he can build on

A three-year-long, multimillion-dollar legal battle between the estate of Robert Indiana and the Morgan Art Foundation, which represented Indiana during his lifetime and owns the copyright to much of his work, including his famed “LOVE” symbol, has culminated in a settlement. Various suits and countersuits that were pending in court were also dismissed. The news was first reported by the New York Times.

According to a filing in New York District Court last week, the remaining suits between the Morgan Art Foundation and the executor of his estate, James W. Brannan, have all been dismissed, along with ones against the artist’s longtime caretaker, Jamie Thomas. The settlement will allow for the estate and the Morgan Art Foundation to jointly represent the artist’s work and grow his market. The terms of the settlement were not revealed, though all the parties agreed to bear their own legal costs.

The stately mansion at 9 Avenue Matignon in Paris is steeped in history. Built in 1913 by architect René Sergent, who created commissioned work for the formidable art collector Pierpont Morgan and the famous dealer Joseph Duveen, it spent the last few decades of the 20th century as an art gallery founded by a makeup mogul, L’Oréal CEO François Dalle.

Since 2000, the building has served as the headquarters of Christie’s, the auction house owned by fashion magnate François Pinault. When Christie’s arrived on Avenue Matignon, the area around it already boasted some high-quality galleries—including Jérôme de Noirmont and Galerie RX—but as rents ascended, many had to leave and make way for the deeper pockets of international luxury goods stores. Over the past five years, however, that has changed. Emmanuel Perrotin, Kamel Mennour, and Almine Rech have opened galleries on the avenue, and set to open in September is a

British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee is auctioning the original source code for his most famous creation, the World Wide Web, as an NFT. Set to appear at a Sotheby’s auction called “This Changed Everything” running from June 23 through the end of the month, the work will have a starting bid of $1,000. Sotheby’s has not designated an estimate for the work, though its final sale price is likely to far exceed its starting bid.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit “causes” supported by the MIT professor and his wife Rosemary Leith. Sotheby’s did not specify the names of organizations to which the sale proceeds will be given.
