much love

I love this magazine. I was hired to be the editor on day one nearly 15 years ago and I have watched it grow and change over the years. It’s been a delight to see this process and I can’t be more proud to see what the magazine has become today. With this being our December issue, it’s a good time to say that this has been a wonderful year. We have enjoyed working with such top galleries in this industry as Arcadia Contemporary, RJD Gallery, Lotton Gallery, Principle Gallery, Gallery 1261, Hirschl & Adler, George Billis Gallery, Bernarducci Gallery, Cavalier Galleries, Quidley & Co., Robert Lange Studios, EVOKE Contemporary, Blue Rain Gallery, Selby Fleetwood Gallery, Nüart Gallery, Bonner David Galleries, Maxwell Alexander Gallery, Haven Gallery, Gerald Peters Gallery, T.H.

ethan murrow: hauling

Through April 2019, the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, presents the installation Hauling by Ethan Murrow. The exhibition, which came about after talks with the museum’s curator Samantha Cataldo, features a Sharpie pen drawing on a 150-foot wall, a 52-foot long scrolling drawing animated by a kinetic sculpture and two large-scale drawings. It is a reflection of Manchester’s history and its people. Murrow says, “Each of these elements has been built with an immense cast of artists, collaborators, assistants and Manchester and Currier community members lending a hand. The end result will be a show that looks at tools, hand craft, manual labor and the essential act of carrying the things we make and value.”…

jeffrey hein: growth and fulfillment

Born in Windsor, New York, Jeffrey Hein took his first drawing class when he was 17 at Ricks College under Gerald Griffin. After taking four years off to serve a mission and treatment for cancer, Hein resumed his studies in painting and drawing in Utah. In 2002, he dropped out of college to establish himself as a full-time artist. About six years later, he was feeling like he wasn’t being challenged enough mentally and concerned that he had plateaued in his growth. With a desire to be a better artist, he believed that to move to the next level he needed to make his work harder and more challenging. Hein says, “My end goal was to become a better artist, so I had to increase my weight mentally getting rid…

connected to the city

Larry Shapin and Ladonna Nicolas’ home in Louisville, Kentucky, was once a 3,000-square-foot house on over 10 acres. As their collection has grown, the house has grown—to 16,000 square feet. Since they choose to live with their art, not keep it in a warehouse or a separate gallery, and since they continue to collect, the house will probably grow again. The collection currently comprises about 1,200 pieces by 330 artists. The unique character of their collection is that it began with a Louisville artist when Larry purchased his first painting in 1975 and has continued to focus on artists from Kentucky, from 17-year-old high school artists to an artist who is 99. Even Larry’s new car was built in Kentucky. Art also had a role in the couple getting together. When Larry…
