we are everywhere you want to be

As a magazine dedicated to helping collectors find new work to acquire for their collections, we naturally got involved in art fairs, gallery shows, museum shows, auctions and events early on in the popularity of such happenings over the last 10 to 15 years. We get involved with fairs for one main reason: because that is where the collectors are. And anywhere art collectors are these days we want to be there too. Nothing makes us happier than seeing collectors walk such events as the Masters of the American West, Prix de West, Night of Artists, or large group shows at galleries throughout the West with a copy of this magazine tucked under their arm. Something we have promised since the beginning of this magazine was to make sure it was…

time capsule

This winter, visitors of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) have a rare opportunity to see American photographer Ansel Adams depicted in a new light amongst both his predecessors and contemporary artists his work has inspired. Running through February 24, Ansel Adams in Our Time is a collection of 200 works—nearly half of which are photographs by Adams drawn from the Lane Organization—organized chronologically yet thematically into eight sections, beginning where Adams’ own photographic journey started. Memories formed when Adams was in his youth—like when he first visited Yosemite at age 14 with a Kodak Box Brownie camera from his father—crafted him not only as a photographer, but as the man behind the lens of some of the most iconic visual representations of American landscapes. Adams’ work continues to inspire contemporary…

texas adventure

Excitement is building at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas, where a new exhibition is being created for early 2020. The exhibition will include a site-specific, large-scale installation done in collaboration with New York conceptual artist Mark Dion. The museum has commissioned Dion to undergo a series of journeys through Texas retracing the footsteps of 19-century explorers including ornithologist and artist John James Audubon, watercolorist Sarah Ann Lillie Hardinge, architect Frederick Law Olmsted, and botanist Charles Wright. The journeys will end with The Perilous Texas Adventures of Mark Dion, which will open at the museum in February 2020. Not only will the exhibition feature the large installation, but also works on paper, paintings, objects and archival materials from the museum. “The Amon Carter Museum of American Art…

in the herd

Craig Blietz’s Herd, a stunning new exhibition that features beautifully rendered cows paired with abstract images of agricultural icons, is leaving the Museum of Wisconsin Art on January 13 and traveling to the nearby Tory Folliard Gallery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. More than 20 paintings will be on view, many of them featuring cows paired with barns, corn stalks and tractors, resulting in boldly patterned compositions of shapes and colors. Blietz has worked fulltime for two years to create his Herd series. The exhibition was Museum of Wisconsin Art. The exhibition will remain on view through March 2. Prior to closing, on February 9, the gallery will host a talk with the artist and Graeme Reid, director of collections and exhibitions at the museum.

above the timberline

Now open at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, is a new exhibition that highlights artwork from Gregory Manchess’ first fully illustrated novel. Gregory Manchess: Above the Timberline, which opened in November 2018, features 30 paintings, as well as props, archival materials, photographs and behind-the-scenes videos exploring the artist’s process. Life-sized sculptures of characters, including polar bears, will also be on display. “Gregory Manchess has masterfully painted, in bold brushstrokes, a window into a futuristic world,” says curator Jesse Kowalski. “His engaging tale contains the eternal themes of family, friendship, loss, and love, and his pictures evoke the essence of such adventure illustrators as N.C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle, and Frank Schoonover.” The exhibition shares a title with the artist’s new book, Above the Timberline, which follows the grand tradition of classic…

state by state

For the first time, The Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Wyoming will be exhibited in its entirety at the University of Wyoming from February 9, 2019, through March 21, 2020. The exhibition, which was gifted from Dorothy and Herbert Vogel’s expansive personal collection, is part of the couple’s Fifty Works for Fifty States program. As part of the program, the Vogels have distributed 2,500 works across the United States, with 50 works of art going to a selected institution in each state. Since 1962, the Vogels have amassed a vast collection of more than 4,000 works of contemporary art. What’s so profound about the Vogels’ collection, however, is not only its size or the artwork itself, but Dorothy and Herbert’s personal journeys as unlikely art collectors. Art collecting…
