Today's Market for American Art
Over the past ten years the market for American art, both historic and contemporary, has greatly expanded and diversified. Join Wendie Martin and Adolfo Castillo, the publishers of American Fine Art and American Art Collector for a special insiders' look at the market for American art from the perspective of galleries in the show. Panelists will include Richard Rossello of Avery Galleries (PA) and Douglas Gold of Lincoln Glenn (NY), and Jane Eckert, Eckert Fine Art (MA). Where is the market headed? What artists are undervalued? What trends are emerging? Free with show admission.
Rediscovering Mark Baum
How does a city and landscape artist widely exhibited and collected by the Met and the Whitney in the 1920s and 1930s, disappear after a World War II crisis of faith into a spiritual journey far from New York’s art scene? His search for the “element” was prescient of the digital age, a spiritual algorithm he explored through planes of color and form. He created a hand-drawn, dynamically shaped ‘pixel’ repeated in large-scale compositions that vibrate with the color and movement of fractal photography or resonate like mandalas in an awe-inspiring universe. Join Naomi Baum, Director of the Mark Baum Estate, and Elizabeth Hoy, Director of the Beard and Weil Galleries at Wheaton College as they chart the course of the artist’s amazing career.
Free with show admission.

Six Women Gallerists Share Candid Advice on Finding Representation
Sponsored by Art New England Magazine
These days, there is nothing surprising about women leading the charge and bringing change to the gallery world. Today’s women directors, curators and gallerists are risk takers. They’re active members in their communities. The landscape is collaborative rather than competitive. And they give more money to charity, often selling work for social and political causes as well. Continuing the discussion which appeared in Art New England's September/October Gallery Issue, all six gallerists join this panel to offer thoughtful, insightful and practical advice on approaching gallery representation. Bring your questions! Moderator: Rita A. Fucillo, associate publisher, Art New England. Free with show admission. Seating is limited Register here for reserved seating.
