We would like to take a break from our daily posting to thank our sponsors for the month of July. These are the people and places that keep us publishing, so be sure to check them out.
- Artwrit is an independent quarterly and monthly publication committed to excellence in art writing. Artwrit's July issue features a review of The Women in Our Life exhibition at Cheim & Read gallery, interview with sculptor Nick van Woert, a criticism of MTA during Bushwick Open Studios, and much more.
- Dia Art Foundation is presenting a retrospective of minimalist artist Blinky Palermo at its Dia:Beacon location, at 3 Beekman Street in Beacon, New York, and CCS Bard. The exhibition runs through October 31, 2011.
- The Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery was established in 2008 by contemporary artist Fernando Luis Alvarez to promote the advancement of the arts through economic, cultural, and philanthropic ventures. Since moving to Stamford in 2009, the gallery has been instrumental in the transformation of the community from a commuter-dominated financial and industrial hub to a thriving downtown haven for the Arts. It has become essential to the very fabric of the community through programs such as involving local at-risk youth and establishing Sprouting Spaces, a project that turns commercial vacancies into active artist studios.
The recent Be(come) A Collector show was dedicated to encouraging new collectors to get in on emerging artists. Here, the public was introduced to the Colombian Seven, a collective of some of Colombia’s best new artists whom the Gallery has brought together after an intensive review and creative analysis process. The show also served as a preview and introduction to the upcoming “Young Latin Masters: JJ Bedoya and the Colombian Seven” September 9th exhibition.
- NADA Hudson is a site-specific art exhibition hosted by the New Art Dealers Alliance on July 30 and 31. Located in a 19th century foundry and forge on the banks of the Hudson river, the exhibition will feature over 30 projects by NADA affiliates.
Readers come to Art Fag City for its pointedly sharp and opinionated commentary on the art world. Our sponsors know that too. Once a month we introduce our sponsors to our readers and let them know a little more about who they are and what they do. You can say thanks to the companies that support Art Fag City by tweeting them or following them on Facebook.
