the first

I’ve been thinking quite a bit recently about galleries and their importance in the art market. This made me think about collectors and their role as well. As a collector, think back to when and where you purchased your first piece of art. I would venture to say that more than 90 percent of you made this purchase from a gallery. Galleries have always been the most accessible place for people to start acquiring works for their collections. Maybe it was a trip to Jackson Hole or Santa Fe or Scottsdale or New York City or San Francisco. After lunch or dinner, you took a stroll down one of these now-legendary art destinations and something caught your eye in the window of a gallery. We all know this feeling. You…

interview with jesse draxler

As I walk into the studio, I’m greeted with an exceptionally high ceiling, austere yet inviting-looking interior design, a giant bookcase full of books and several lights clipped to stands pointed downward at four neat, almost perfectly placed rows of white sheets of paper. On each sheet of paper is a different yet slightly similar looking design made out of what appears to be charcoal.

She worked for Venturi, Rauch and Scott Brown and eventually headed her own firm from 1996 to 2006 when she turned to painting full time.
