ELEVATING THE ORDINARY 

On the surface, Eric Standley’s multi-dimensional laser-cut paper art is startlingly intricate. It is strongly influenced by Christian and Islamic architecture. Eye-catching whether in a gallery or in the basement studio of his home, Eric’s delicate yet robust works invite closer inspection and the urge, which must be firmly stifled, to touch and explore their many layers.


Eric, 49, is an Associate Professor of Studio Art at Virginia Tech. His work can be found in private collections, pinned on Pinterest and in one Middle...

Kevin Cole’s “Increase Risk with Emotional Faith,” a mixed media wall sculpture, will be featured in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture. “Since 1992, my work has evolved to include the relationship between color and music, especially music as it relates to the African-American community,” said Cole in an interview with ArtDaily. Also included in the Smithsonian’s collection will be fellow Atlanta artist Fahamu Pecou.

Cole’s works are held in over 2,000 public and private collections, including the High Mus...

Havana, Mar 17 ( EFE ) - The "unrestrained optimism" and the apparent happiness that the commercials of the 1950's were selling serve the Cuban artist R10 to document in a very personal way the "thaw" between the island and the US in The Banana Issue a show that the designer will exhibit this month in the northern country.

This will be the first solo exhibition by Jorge Rodríguez Diez (Havana, 1969) in the United States, an opportunity "fortunate" in the middle of the renewed state of bilateral tension and the virtua...

The aim of “Interwoven/Contemporary Textiles” at the Marta Hewett Gallery is to explore “traditional and alternative textile materials.” Despite the diversity of what’s on view, the exhibition can be divided into artists who use traditional techniques and materials, and others who use alternative materials but still work with basically traditional techniques.

December 23rd, 2017  |  Published in *, December 2017 | Karen S. Chambers

Jones sees modern quilting as “look(ing) at traditional quilting and then do(ing) its own thing.” 1 For this quilt maker, “its own thing” marries tradition and contemporary abstract art in quilts that are meant to be used and “paintings”—smaller pieced works stretched over wood supports.

It begins as a gooey lesion on his forehead. He reaches into the wound under his ripped skin, grimaces in agony, and pulls a bullet from his skull. The flesh begins to pulsate, throb, bubble, and turn a sickly gray; his eyes roll up in e

xquisite pain. Claws emerge from his fingertips, and a slimy mouth and nose thrust slowly, so slowly outward from the rest of his face, as sharp canine teeth burst through his gums.

Eddie Quist has transformed into a werewolf.

October 29th, 2017  |  Published in October 2017  

You enter a different world when you walk into the Marta Hewett Gallery. The exhibition is “Anima and Animus/Julia Oldham & Casey Riordan Millard.” To navigate it, I needed to understand what anima and animus meant, yet another example of my spotty education. Gallerist Marta Hewett helped me there.
