ARC Salon winner in InsideArt Article

Published on May 17, 2023

Irene Antich, winner of the Inside Art Award, was interviewed about her oil painting El Abrigo (The Cloak), which she created during the Covid lockdowns of 2020.

“I chose “El Abrigo (The Cloak)” because I felt it demonstrates an elegant marriage of the straightforward and the complex in combining personal experience with social relevance. The black cloak that grips, weighs and seems to exert its own web-like restraining force on the painting’s subject strongly evokes the heavy isolation imposed on us by the Covid pandemic. “El Abrigo (The Cloak)” exemplifies what I believe is one of art’s most important functions: to render strikingly visible profound shared experiences of contemporary life.”

This work will be participating in an online auction hosted by Sothebys.com. Bids will be accepted July 14 - July 24. To learn more click here

Beautiful and Useful: The Douglas Schoenherr Donation of Books Published by Kelmscott Press

Published on May 18, 2023

This exhibition features books and related ephemera published by Kelmscott Press, established in Hammersmith, London, in 1891 by William Morris, novelist, poet and leading figure in the British Arts and Crafts Movement. Committed to the highest standards of craftsmanship throughout its relatively short life, the “typographical adventure” initiated by Morris was remarkably successful, producing some of the most beautiful books ever printed, while also reviving the idea of the book as a work of art, and giving rise to the private press movement that flourished in England during the late 1890s and early 1900s.

The exhibition is on display until June 18, 2023 at the National Gallery of Canada, Library and Archives, 380 Sussex Drive, Ottawa, ON K1N 9N4, Canada.
