I have been on an art tear lately. The Picasso Sculpture exhibit at Moma, the Van Gogh Bedroom exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago and, in my little town, an exhibit at the Rye Arts Center called Winter White: The Absence Of Color. Nothing cures the winter blues like beautiful art!
Winter White at the Rye Arts Center was inspired by the delicate Irving Harper paper sculpture above and curated by Katharine Dufault. An exhibition showcasing an artists interpretation of white. (more on Irving Harper here).
Winter White includes works made from a diverse range of media: wood, plaster, glass, bark, textiles, paint photography, encaustic and digital print.
The contemporary artists use or understanding of white defines and unifies the exhibit.
Enjoy this modern play on “white” and dash over to see the exhibit before it closes on March 5th!
I will leave you with the Van Gogh Bedrooms. Van Gogh created three distinct paintings of his beloved bedroom in Arles, France between 1888 and 1889.
This is the first time in North America that all three versions of The Bedroom have been together in the same museum.
The exhibit is open through May 10th at the Art Institute of Chicago.
It includes a total of 36 works by Van Gogh. Go see it!
