Jose Gonzalez - New Sculptures

I have been asking Jose to bring in a new Picasso sculpture for weeks and he showed up on Wednesday with this colorful replica of the piece in Daley plaza.

And I have a few other larger pieces that we uncovered at his home a few weeks ago when I did a studio visit.

Tricia Rumbolz - Focal Points

We have sold half of the Tricia Rubolz 'Focal Point' series, but the three remaining make a compelling triptych. This week I turned them horizontally, they can show in either orientation, and they feel slightly transformed. Tricia's precision and focus are evident throughout the drawings, and her craftsmanship extends to her hand made frames.

Michael McGuire Found a Box of Old Drawings

To Quote From Michael's Blog

'Some Old Drawings....

....unearthed as I continue to resettle my apartment after new windows and a major paint job. Found them all in a rather distressed cardboard box - many circa 2008/2009. Quickly photographed on the floor of the studio, note the yardstick for scale.'

A small sampling of the forty or so that are in the gallery now.

Michelle in New York (Brooklyn)

Michelle is on a road trip this week. She and Elena drove a carload of precut wood pieces to the location of a new J. Crew store in Brooklyn, where it would be assembled on the wall. They of course made and adventure out of it, driving overnight, seeing musicals, and non-stop food and fun. But assembly time came late this week and the results look sensational. I hear they like it so much they want a second wall! Come home to us safe, the dogs miss you both, and we cannot wait to see some new amazing art.
