A Show of Stevie Nicks Portraits by Stevie Nicks Opens in NYC - October

The Morrison Hotel Gallery, which specializes in music photography – not only photographs of musicians, but also photography by musicians – will present a show of self-portraits by Stevie Nicks from between 1975 and 1987. The pictures for the show were selected by Dave Stewart, the Eurythmics guitarist, who co-produced her “In Your Dreams” album.

 The show, called “24 K Gold” – also the name of Ms. Nicks’s new album (a version of which will come with a book of Ms. Nicks’s photographs) – is devoted entirely to selfies taken in the wee hours of the night, both at home and on tour, using Polaroid cameras.

The Cooper Union Museum for the Arts of Decoration, now known as the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, held an exhibit in the ’40s about the cat in history and art. Nine Lives, its exhibit catalog, is available in our collection of digitized books, and was used as a reference in the Wikipedia article on the cultural depiction of cats.

If you’re curious, the Smithsonian Collections Search can point you to over 100 objects in the Cooper Hewitt about cats.

Anyone else excited about the upcoming final season of Mad Men? It’s, like, my favourite television show ever, guys. I always think of my relative who was obsessed with Dallas and died before they found out who shot J.R., which means I have to live another 8 months or so. I think I can do it.

Anyway, the Museum of the City of New York has a new exhibition "Mac Conner: A New York Life" with more than 70 original works by the artist. Conner arrived in New York in 1950 and built a career in the city’s vibrant publishing and advertising industries with his crisp, hand-painted illustrations for women’s magazines like McCall’s, Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan and more. He helped to create the image of the post-war American woman and redefine American style and culture. Conner, who is still with us at 100 years old, was a real life Mad Man, the Don Draper of his day…or actually more like Stan Rizzo, but you get the point. The exhibit, the first of its kind to celebrate the artist, includes the above images: “The Trouble With Love” (1952) from Good Housekeeping, “Killer in the Club Car” (1954) and “There’s Death for Remembrance” (1953) both from This Week, “How Do You Love Me” (1950) from Woman’s Home Companion, and “Hold On Tight” (1958) published in Redbook.
