1. Eve Stockton’s Brings the Natural World In at Long View

    Long View Gallery

    Current Exhibit: Eve Stockton - Ensembles: Landscapes in Transition III June 14 through July 15, 2012.

    Highlight from the show: Ensemble IV: Water 1- Var. F & H 1/1, Seascape Landscape 1& 2, woodcut on paper, 36 x 36 inches, $3,200 for each panel.

    A little bit about the artist:

    Eve Stockton creates large scale, multi-layered woodcut prints inspired by the natural world. The graphic repeating patterns, bright colors – each carved from a different woodblock - and size of each panel (3’ x 3’) create new molecular landscapes that straddle abstract and representational images.

    This is her first solo show at the Long View Gallery. Her work can also be seen in public and private collections including Housatonic Museum of Art, Bridgeport, CT,  Nature Genetics Magazine, New York, NY, Sacred Heart University, Fairfield, CT, and The Epstein Collection, Washington, D.C. Stockton earned her BA from Princeton in 1978 and her Masters in Architecture from Yale in 1984.

  2. Art in Living Space: 2012 DreamHome

    The 2012 DreamHome design show kicked off with over 400 guests in attendance.  The Washington Design Center’s 2012 DreamHome event features eight top up-and coming interior designers.  Each designer receives a room found in most households to design and make their own.  They took their inspiration from the emerging craft artists who are represented in the Smithsonian American Art Museum/Renwick Gallery’s “40 under 40” exhibition. 

    Pam Frederick and Flora Kanter, partners of ArtSPACE Management and friends of ArtSee DC, were appointed by Scott Cooke of Scott Cooke Design to curate the artwork for the living room. Cooke’s goal for his living room was that it be “art driven” and the room a venue for original artwork.  The artists Craig Cahoon, Eve Stockton and Tati Kaupp (Cross-MacKenzie Gallery) generously provided the artwork for Cooke’s space. 

    Cooke’s room is the only room in the show to truly incorporate art work. Tati Kaupp’s work in bright purple hues compliment the color scheme of the room that is brightly decorated with purple, blue and yellow and Eve Stockton’s marble and alabaster sculptures compliment the 19th century touches. Craig Cahoon”s colorful abstract works make the white walls disappear and create a beautiful contrast to the primary colors.  ArtSPACE believes that the artwork should compliment the residential or corporate design plan. 

    The Washington Design Center is free and open to the public. The 2012 DreamHome is on view from March 16 - November 30, 2012.
