Rooms with a View 

This exhibition focuses on a subject treasured by the Romantics: the view through an open window. German, French, Danish, and Russian artists first took up the theme in the second decade of the nineteenth century.

Juxtaposing near and far, the window is a metaphor for unfulfilled longing. Painters distilled this feeling in pictures of hushed, spare rooms with contemplative figures; studios with artists at work; and open windows as the sole motif. As the exhibition reveals, these pictures may shift markedly in tone, yet they share a distinct absence of the anecdote and narrative that characterized earlier genre painting.”

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

John Grade: Sculptures and installations

Sculptures and installations by Seattle-based artist John Grade.

This series marks a pivotal transition couched between the larger works and featured new sculpture in wood and resin (example: Core) as well as two in iron, cast at the Kohler facility during Grades installation of Capacitor. For Grade, the human scale pieces are especially important as “they act as fertile ground – allowing time to reflect, experiment and explore alternative directions and sub themes that cannot be hit within the larger works.”
