Edward Hopper House Presents MILTON GLASER: LANDSCAPE PRINTS, September 7 - November 4, 2018, with Opening Reception, Thursday, September 13, 6:30 - 8:30pm

Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center is pleased to announce an exhibition of landscape prints by renowned graphic designer Milton Glaser

The opportunity to exhibit in Edward Hopper’s home is one that Mr. Glaser has taken as both a great honor and an impetus to create his latest and most personal works to date.

The exhibition has drawn attention to a number of connections shared between the two artists and their artistic development, including the influence of time spent in Europe as young men, the resulting decision of each to turn toward a different artistic medium, and a mutual love for the Hudson Valley.

This show will feature numerous landscape explorations influenced by the late monotypes of Edgar Degas, which are also reminiscent of Hopper’s early paintings. In each case, Glaser begins with a drawing – in black and white or color – made from both memory and observation. He then uses a range of digital processes to layer a variety of patterns on top of and below the image, effectively creating a virtual lithographic press. This procedure, which enables him to discern and control the slightest changes in color, has resulted in a series of new works by Glaser that offer an at-once-familiar but unique perspective on the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley.

Milton Glaser is among the most celebrated graphic designers in the world today. His work has been featured in exhibitions and museums throughout the world, including one-man-shows at the Museum of Modern Art and the Georges Pompidou Center. He is the recipient of lifetime achievement awards from both the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and the Fulbright Association.

In 1974, he opened Milton Glaser, Inc., where he continues to produce a prolific amount of work, including the iconic I ❤ N Y symbol; perhaps the most replicated symbol of our time. He is also co-founder of New York Magazine and Push Pin Studios.

An exhibition poster and special edition post card books designed by Milton Glaser will be available for sale at Edward Hopper House.


As part of this exhibition, there will be an Interview with Milton Glaser by Ken Carbone on Saturday, October 13th, 2018 at 2pm.

Local residing design guru Ken Carbone will be interviewing Milton Glaser and will touch on Glaser’s long and creative career that continues to transform corporations, organizations and everyday imagery, Carbone will provide the setting and context for the artist (Glaser) to share his approach to art. There is no fine art vs. commercial art to Glaser, it is all art, and it this devotion to the creative process that guides his powerful vision.

Riverside Galleries, Garrison Art Center, 2 Opening Exhibitions: "Some Stories" Melinda Stickney & "BassWood Bodies" Victoria Thorson

The Riverside Galleries at Garrison Art Center in Garrison, New York, announces Two Exhibition Openings, August 11 - September 9, 2018 with a public reception for the artists on Saturday, August 11 from 5 -7pm.

The artists include Melinda Stickney-Gibson and Victoria Thorson.

Melinda Stickney-Gibson's paintings and painted “tapestries”  involve a diaristic, personal and often graphic approach. Her paintings and sculptural pieces literally incorporate tiny bits of writing from her own journals, favorite fragments of writing by others and universal words such as “yes," “maybe," “no?," “her,” “ummm….,” etc. This aspect of the work is absolutely in relationship to her longtime love of the physical act of painting and her visceral love of the paint itself.

One work that will be featured in the exhibition is LOSING LARSEN C, a painting that is a personal commentary on a gigantic ancient ice cap, named Larsen C, which is rapidly losing mass.

Stickney-Gibson has been living and working as an artist in New York for over 25 years. In addition to painting, she creates sculptural work incorporating steel, glass, concrete and wire often resting on steel wall-mounted ledges or installed on the floor itself.

Victoria Thorson’s sculptures tread a line between recognizable form and pure abstraction. She has been seduced by basswood. Its softness of touch when smooth, evokes the human body. Starting with lumber or recycled wood, Thorson sees potential shapes and feels her way along the cracks, knots and grain, following the lines of energy. She carves and refines to create slits of light between masses and discovers abstract forms to express life’s silences and vibrations.

Her work is often anchored by a re-purposed metal industrial find that is the right weight, proportion and aesthetic to be part of the piece, not a separate base. Most pieces can rotate 360 degrees or swing out to recompose, while the initial core and plumb line stay intact. This exhibition will also feature several ceramics Thorson created in the 90s working with sculptor Peter Gourfain, who taught her to sharpen a wood tool and cut clear planes when the clay was right to the touch. Gallery visitors will see the evolution as Thorson brought her fluid form-language from clay to wood.

4 Outdoor Kitchens - Beautiful Designs that Enhance our Outdoor Living!

Original Posting: On the Drawing Board, July 2018
Newsletter, Crisp Architects
Author: James Crisp, Crisp Architects Blog

"Nothing says summertime like cooking and eating in an outdoor kitchen"

It is the best of both worlds, in that you are outside with friends and family, and the cook can be part of the fun.  We have designed outdoor kitchens that are simple and have just a built-in grill, as well as fully furnished outdoor kitchens that rival their indoor cousins. While an indoor kitchen may be more practical for year-round cooking, it cannot compete with the feeling of cooking a great meal outdoors on a beautiful day. (We worked with Conte and Conte Landscape Architects on this project)

Kitchen One - Pool House Kitchen
