LONDON.- An exhibition featuring well-loved toys, treasured family gifts and tiny outfits belonging to nine generations of royal children opens at Buckingham Palace on Saturday, 26 July 2014 at the annual Summer Opening of the State Rooms. Royal Childhood brings together more than 150 objects relating to 25 children, from the future George IV to Prince George of Cambridge, set against a backdrop of previously unseen photographs and private film footage. It gives an unprecedented glimpse into life as a young member of the royal family over 250 years. Buckingham Palace has been a royal family home since George III purchased Buckingham House for his new wife Queen Charlotte in 1762. In 1845 Queen Victoria commissioned a fourth wing to be added to the Palace to provide 'accommodation for our little family, which is fast growing up' – she had nine children. In 1936, at the age of ten, Princess Elizabeth moved into the Palace with her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, ... More

The number includes attendance at both the main building on Fifth Avenue and The Cloisters museum and gardens in upper Manhattan, the branch of the Metropolitan devoted to the art and architecture of the Middle Ages.

Adding this superb painting by Peale ... More

This exhibition presents previously unseen Jimi Hendrix images by renowned portrait photographer Donald Silverstein.

LONDON.- Jimi Hendrix by Donald Silverstein is the world’s first exhibition of work from this incredible, previously unseen archive of Jimi Hendrix photographs. It seems incredible that an archive of such historical significance has never been the subject of a gallery exhibition before now, but we are putting that right, and some. This exhibition presents previously unseen Jimi Hendrix images by renowned portrait photographer Donald Silverstein (1932-75). Running from 26 July to 23 August 2014, the exhibition celebrates Silverstein's iconic images of the incendiary musician, taken in London in 1967. Incredibly, only two of the photographs from the extensive session have been released officially, (both in conjunction with Jimi Hendrix albums), and so the exhibition unlocks the amazing treasure-trove of previously unseen / unpublished images contained within the Silverstein family's ...

BOSTON, MASS.- Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WWI, Over There! Posters from World War I (on view July 26, 2014—May 25, 2015) at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, features more than 50 wartime posters from the United States and Europe. Many of the posters were used to encourage enlistment in the US Army, Navy, Marines and Air Service, while others appealed to the American public to buy war bonds, conserve food, support the Red Cross and other relief agencies, and maintain a strong work ethic on the home front. On view in the Mary Stamas Gallery and Frances Vrachos Gallery, this exhibition is the first time since 1938 that many of the posters have been on view, and marks the first time that the newly acquired I Want You For U.S. Army (1917) by James Montgomery Flagg has been on view at the MFA.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Guggenheim Museum presents Kandinsky Before Abstraction, 1901–1911 in the museum’s Kandinsky Gallery on Annex Level 3. The exhibition features an intimate presentation of sixteen early paintings and woodcuts by Vasily Kandinsky (b. 1866, Moscow; d. 1944, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France), highlighting pictorial themes that preceded the artist’s known nonobjective style. This exhibition is organized by Tracey Bashkoff, Senior Curator, Collections and Exhibitions, and Megan Fontanella, Associate Curator, Collections and Provenance. Kandinsky launched his artistic career in 1895, abandoning a legal profession to become the art director of a printing firm in Moscow. One year later Kandinsky left for Munich, where he formed associations with the city’s leading avant-garde groups, realized his talent for working with three classic printmaking techniques (etching, lithography, and woodcut), and began to evolve as an arti ...

NEW YORK, NY.- A new play, public television documentary special, and gallery exhibition will resurrect the life and work of modernist artist Rudolf Bauer, one of the 20th century's most important, yet nearly forgotten, painters.

Bauer,a new play by Lauren Gunderson, will have its New York premiere at New York City's 59E59 Theaters on September 2, after an acclaimed production at the San Francisco Playhouse, and "Betrayal: The Life and Art of Rudolf Bauer," a documentary narrated by Linda Hunt, will be broadcast on THIRTEEN, the public television station serving the New York metropolitan area, on Monday, August 25th at 9:00 p.m. In addition, the German Consulate General (871 United Nations Plaza) will host an exhibition of Rudolf Bauer's masterpieces from September 2-19.

Comprised of everyday and mass-produced objects - a mirror, water glass, and coffee cup - as well as the artist's signature brushstrokes, the works highlight Lichtenstein's ability to elevate the everyday to the iconic. Presented in a gallery space populated with furniture, the exhibition encourages engagement, inviting audiences to view historic works in an intimate setting.

Victor Landweber’'s American Cameras series depict a visually seductive group of vintage cameras isolated on a black background.

LA JOLLA, CA.- Joseph Bellows Gallery announces two new exhibitions, Victor Landweber American Cameras and Summer Selections II. An opening reception will be held for both exhibitions on Saturday July 26 from 6-8pm. The exhibitions will continue through September 6th. Victor Landweber’s American Cameras series depict a visually seductive group of vintage cameras isolated on a black background. The large-scale luminous Cibachrome prints included in the exhibition present their subjects directly, and ask the viewer to contemplate the object pictured, as well as the nature of the medium of photography itself. Artists working in media other than photography, especially late Modernist painters, surrealists, Dadaists and conceptual artists, whose work have suggested possibilities for addressing perception and its representation in a photograph, have been influential to Landweber. Victor Landweber was born in Washington DC in 1943. He h ... More

CAC Málaga presents TV Channel: Philippe Parreno's first solo exhibition in Spain   Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg commemorates the centennial of the Panama Canal   'L'Art Brut dans le Monde' exhibition opens at Collection de l'Art Brut in Lausanne

Seven films by Parreno, produced between 1987 and 2007, are on view at CAC Malaga.

MALAGA.- TV Channel, Philippe Parreno’s first solo exhibition in Spain curated by Fernando Francés, is a collection of seven films by Parreno, produced between 1987 and 2007 - Fleurs; No More Reality, la manifestation; Anna; Anywhere Out Of The World; El Sueño de Una Cosa; Alien Season; and The Writer. During the 90 minute loop humans, vegetables, animals and miscellaneous objects appear at intervals, all of them existing on the edges of being, seeming part automaton, part alive. The work is a soliloquy, an exhibition within an exhibition space. TV Channel is an apparatus. It is presented on a huge LED panel, used mainly in stadiums in the late 1990s. The screen is both solid and translucent with the resolution and sound in transient states, shifting and disintegrating depending on the vantage point of the viewer, the spectators and what they watch are in turn phantasmagorical and real. The title of the work itself also shifts. ‘Channel’ can be taken to mean both TV station a ... More

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA.- Building the Panama Canal—Photographs by Ernest Hallen, on view from Saturday, July 26, through Sunday, November 9, in the second-floor Works on Paper Gallery, reveals a fascinating story.

LAUSANNE.- "One of our civilization’s most awkward facets is the total separation operated between the order of the rational and the order of the poetic, whereas in all the so-called primitive civilizations [...], these are two closely united orders," asserted the ethnologist Claude Lévi Strauss. The seven creators whose works have been assembled for this exhibition have maintained the original alliance enabling the two orders, the rational and the poetic, to live together. Their creations—recently discovered or rediscovered in Bali, Brazil, Benin, India, the Far North Arctic, Sicily and Germany—testify to a cosmopolitan Art Brut immersed in poetry. Some of them cultivate sensitive links with nature and the cosmos, bending an attentive ear, in the manner of a Zen archer. Others assert that the celestial or astral powers accompany them, that they are ... More

Horizon: A group exhibition of artists recommend by other artists opens at Quint Gallery
LA JOLLA, CA.- Quint Gallery announces the opening of their summer group exhibition, Horizon. The concept for this exhibition was to invite artists who have made works for the Murals of La Jolla project to recommend an artist they feel is underrepresented or emerging to be included in the exhibition, highlighting the work of artists who are admired by their established peers. This is the first exhibition of this kind at Quint Gallery. The opening reception on Saturday, July 26th from 6-8pm is open to the public and some of the artists will be in attendance. The gallery is often asked: How do they choose new artists to show at the gallery? Their answer: Usually they become interested in new artist’s work by listening to other artist’s recommendations. When an artist they respect says “you need to see so and so’s work,” their ears perk up. Twenty years ago, UCSD professor/artist Louis Hock ... More

Abstract landscape paintings by Gregory Botts on view at David Richard Gallery, Santa Fe
SANTA FE, NM.- David Richard Gallery is presenting a selection of contemporary landscape paintings by Gregory Botts. Painted in Madrid, New Mexico, Botts combined figuration with geometry, plein air with studio painting and site-specific locations with memory to create his abstractions. The exhibition is being presented July 18 - August 23, 2014. At first glance, Botts’ paintings are as straight forward as they seem, contemporary and reductive landscapes. However, on closer examination they are much more complex with many layers of imagery, painting and meaning, shifting more to abstraction and bordering on conceptual. How can that be? Botts is fascinated with the passage of time, both on a micro scale—the duration of time when creating his plein air paintings with the ever changing clouds, moving water and shifting sun that changes the light, shadows and color palette—and macro ...

Brazilian painter Cristina Canale opens a new exhibit at Galeria Nara Roesler
SAO PAULO.- The relationship between figuration and abstraction are the uniting thread in the solo show by Cristina Canale, one of the foremost painters of our time The formal richness of the work of Cristina Canale, one of the foremost Brazilian painters in activity, can be seen up close in her new solo show at Galeria Nara Roesler. The exhibit opens on July 26, featuring approximately 12 pieces created in 2013 and 2014, and further highlighting the connections between figuration and abstraction that have driven the artist’s ceaseless research since 1993. On conceptualizing the works in the show, Canale says: "I have strived to create territories of abstraction within a figurative context. These abstract areas arise, for instance, as backgrounds to the compositions, taking the place of an otherwise environmental context, or else they are contained within one of the elements in the painting – in the ...

Woodmere Art Museum presents first retrospective of pioneering painter Theresa Bernstein
PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Woodmere Art Museum presents Theresa Bernstein: A Century in Art, the first retrospective exhibition dedicated to the work of Theresa Bernstein (1890–2002).

A playful installation brings spectators together at the New Britain Museum of American Art
NEW BRITAIN, CONN.- The New Britain Museum of American Art welcomes the latest NEW/NOW artist, Bob Gregson, and his participatory exhibition Space to Maneuver with an opening reception on Sunday, July 27, 2–3:30 p.m. Gregson harnesses humor to gently draw people into his sculptures and installations and provides opportunities for interactions: rolling on your back, turning panels, or rearranging objects, alone or with others who may be total strangers. Responding to the lack of intimate social interactions in today’s technology-saturated culture, he strives to use art to create situations that bring people together in a shared experience. Each viewer of Space to Maneuver is an active contributor to the exhibition. In Bicker Booth, for example, two people are prompted to become actors by theatrically interpreting phrases from a Rolodex of common gripes, aphorism or sarcasms. This ... More
