A story I made up. When Markus Rothkowitz was leaving Dvinsk to travel to Portland, Oregon in 1913, his family brought along a velvet covered photo album. The edges were worn from handling and from the in and out storage in a bookcase. The spine had darkened. Those worn spots revealed the warp and weft of the fabric while the center was burnished to a luminous glow. #art #photography #modernart #contemporaryphotography #art #photography #modernart #fineart #modern #newyorkshows #abstractphotography @garveysimon #contemporaryartist #womanartist #lindalindroth #modernartist #contemporaryphotography #themuseumofmodern art

Eli Whitney Museum's Annual Leonardo Challenge Fundraiser is Thursday April 25 from 5 to 8 pm. Great food and wonderfully clever items on the theme of Mask and Metaphor like my Pierrot, a French powder box from the mid-twentieth century, to bid on. All proceeds go to the equally inventive programs for kids and families. #art #photography #modernart #fineart #modern #newyorkshows #gallery #nycart #nycartist #abstractphotography @garveysimon #contemporaryartist #womanartist #modernartist #contemporaryphotography #themuseumofmodernart

This is the 40th anniversary of my MFA exhibition American Portraits at Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts. The exhibition of 4 foot x 5-foot portraits enlarged onto photo linen accompanied by narrative text revealed people posing with objects of some personal import—their baggage. My thesis advisor, the painter Leon Golub, was impressed with the work and asked me where the exhibit would go next. It was 1979 and there were not a whole lot of places. I sent a letter and slides of the work to the newly opened art gallery down the road at the pharmaceutical company ER Squibb. The above letter is notable on many levels. It is not only a rejection, it is a rebuke. I often wondered if the writer deliberately avoided the traditional formal salutation, Dear Linda, or if it was a way of further condemning my outreach. The next year my self-portrait (Family Portrait) was published with the accompanying text, along with other work in the series, in the photographic journal, afterimage, with an essay by James Hugunin. Following that a threatened law suit if I ever published one of the portraits again. It was a little like Diane Arbus’s Girls in Identical Raincoats. I agreed. A few months later Stewart Brand published the portrait in his Next Whole Earth Catalog, without permission, citing the right of a reviewer. It has been published many times since including the forthcoming book, Women Artists on the Edge in September. The three illustrated copies of my MFA thesis have long since been stolen from the Rutgers Library System. Some weeks ago a stranger sent the portrait to me through a Facebook message with the note “That’s my father.”#art #photography #modernart #fineart #modern #newyorkshows #gallery #nycart #nycartist #abstractphotography @garveysimon #contemporaryartist #womanartist #modernartist #contemporaryphotography #themuseumofmodernart

I made a self-portrait with #Zackadackaflame on my birthday from the time I was ready to deliver. This composite at 0, 1 and 20 will be exhibited at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art in New Haven during International Women’s Month. The exhibition honors the seminal book from the 1970s entitled “Our Bodies, Our Selves”, a landmark publication providing information on women’s reproductive health that was updated through 2011. The exhibition will be open to the public March 7 – April 10 2019. #art #photography #modernart #fineart #modern #newyorkshows #gallery #nycart #nycartist #abstractphotography @garveysimon #contemporaryartist #womanartist #modernartist #contemporaryphotography #themuseumofmodernart
