gallery reception

Euphemia

Proceeding eighty miles into the northwest wind, you reach the city of Euphemia, where the merchants of seven nations gather at every solstice and at every equinox to trade wares and cargo and stories and memory.

This piece was done for a group illustration gallery show themed around Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities. The show will be opening November 14th in the MICA Pinkard gallery with a reception on the 18th; come take a look if you’re able!

Leighton House was the London home, studio and 30 year long project of the Victorian artist, Frederic, Lord Leighton (1830-96). Designed by the architect and designer George Aitchison initially in 1864, the project was completed in stages and took on  a relatively organic process as the two friends Aitchison and Leighton worked together. The house ultimately served as both Lord Leighton’s studio and own, personal gallery and reception, where even Queen Victoria visited in 1859. It is one of the very few Victorian artist’s house studios open to the public within the UK.

Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Leighton House is Lord Leighton’s collection of over a thousand beautiful, Islamic tiles decorating the interior walls and giving the house its notable Orientalist aesthetic. In particular, The Arab Hall, where Lord Leighton’s collection of highly decorative polychrome tiles, mostly from Damascus in Syria dating from the 15th to 17th century as well as 19th-century tiles made by William de Morgan are, is perhaps the building’s main focus.

Book Show Reception!

The class of 2013’s Book Show Reception was a lot of fun.

It was a great chance to show faculty, friends and family the work of the past 9 months.

And most of all, to read books.

The show continues through October 13 at 209 East 23rd Street.
