Karen Yank Monumental Sculpture at CNM

This May, Karen Yank is installing a monumental sculpture work at the Main 
Campus of CNM in Albuquerque. Wrapping up a two-year effort, the last
cuts and welds were made in situ with the help of a large crane and lift,
and some very talented assistants.

The work, "Growing Strength," stands over 20 feet tall, and reflects some 
of the color, flora and simultaneously adds to the crisp geometry of the site.

Raphaelle Goethals at the Morris Graves Museum of Art
Kudos to Raphaelle on her solo at the Morris Graves Museum of Art 
in Eureka, California.  About the exhibition, the museum says "Discreet 
references to art historical antecedents such as the romantic sublime 
of J.M.W Turner or the moody formalism of Motherwell whisper from 
behind her complex translucent painted veils. Luring the viewer into 
a space of contemplation, her work evokes childhood experiences of 
gazing through frozen layers of ice into spaces that are both imaginative 
and hauntingly memorable."

Fausto Fernandez at the McNay Art Museum

The inspiration behind To See Is to Have: Navigating Today's Art Ecosystem
is to make private art public, and to share with every member of our community 
selections from the diverse collections of members of the McNay Contemporary 
Collectors Forum (MCCF). The artworks on view open doors to new worlds of 
discovery, and have been selected from the personal collections of the members 
of MCCF, who dedicate themselves to learning about, engaging with, and collecting 
contemporary art. 

Accompanied by an illustrated gallery guide that attempts to break down the 
barriers to collecting art, To See Is to Have: Navigating Today's Art Ecosystem 
encourages and emboldens visitors to embark on their own journeys of discovery 
of contemporary art.

Scott Greene at the Las Cruces Museum of Art

On the heels of his exhibitions at the New Mexico Museum of Art and 516 
Arts, Scott Greene's paintings will be featured in an exhibition at the Las 
Cruces Museum of ArtKeiko Ohnuma writes that Greene's paintings "seem 
to announce that Romanticism never died out in America, but still animates our 
hopes and dreams as it continuously reappears as the driving spirit of the counter-
culture...the undying Romantic will still remain standing with his illusionistic bag 
of tricks, brimming with hope and sadness, documenting it all as beauty."
Don't miss this opportunity to see this quasi-retrospective of Greene's finest paintings at the Las Cruces Museum of Art from May 6 through July 16, 2017.

Hung Liu at the University of Wyoming Art Museum

Hung Liu: American Exodus presents new work by Hung Liu (Chinese, b. 1948) 
that are inspired by the Dust Bowl era photographs of American documentary 
photographer Dorothea Lange (American, 1895-1965). 

In American Exodus, Liu draws her attention to Lange's Great Depression images 
made under the Farm Security Administration and archived at the Oakland Museum 
of California. Lange's intimate and compassionate depiction of Americans in distress 
in the Great Plains during the 1930s and 1940s resonated with Liu. In her earlier 
work, Liu explored the struggles of the people in her own country of China who were 
displaced by political or natural forces. It is here that Liu's work with Lange's photos 
converge in an exploration of the universality of human dignity and strength.

Jamie Brunson at the San Jose Museum of Art
Jamie Brunson is featured in a new exhibition at SJMA titled Your Mind, This
Moment: Art and the Practice of Attention.  This really interesting show is 
referred to by the curators as an experiment.  From the museum's web page
We offer the following: "Fifteen seconds. That's the length of time the average 
museum visitor spends in front of a work of art—much of it reading the wall 
label.  Even the Mona Lisa commands only fifteen seconds of attention. That's 
half the time we wait for an iPad or smartphone to power on...Your Mind, This 
Moment: Art and the practice of Attention presents works of art as objects of 
meditation.  With input from an advisory group of artists who are also meditators, 
the gallery will be designed as an intimate space that encourages quietude."

Hung Liu Scales of History at Fresno Art Museum Extended to 28 April 2017

This exciting exhibition features Hung's most recent work inspired by the time
and images of the American Dust Bowl, as well as a thoughtful presentation
of her work from the 1990s and 2000s, and even earlier works from the 
mid-1970s.  These earliest paintings are small works of oil on paper, painted
sub-rosa as they do not represent authorized images of immediately pre-
Cultural Revolution China.  Hung refers to the series as her Secret Freedom
paintings; a terrible irony as the subject of most of these paintings is the
beauty of the countryside, devoid of people.

John Berger 1926-2017

Twenty years ago I spent one of the most memorable days of my life in the
company of John Berger.  On a trip to Paris to visit my dear friend, filmmaker 
Rodrigo Dorfman, we decided to meet Mr. Berger, and tramped off to find
him.  Some hours later we were warmly ushered in to his cozy house in the
Paris suburbs.  When I was a university student we read and studied his seminal 
work, Ways of Seeing.  As a relatively newly-minted art dealer, to meet the author 
sent me over the moon.  We did not talk about art history for long, however.  
The extraordinarily kind John Berger wanted to know all about my friend and me, 
and after some number of bottles of wine I opened up with a torrent of tears 
about the death of my mother.  Hours later Rodrigo and I poured ourselves onto 
the street wide-eyed and ready to devour the world.  For me as a young man at 
the beginning of his life's work, to meet Mr. Berger, the man, sent me to the stars.

Hung Liu at the American University Museum, Katzen Center

Hung Liu: Daughter of China, Resident Alien runs 6 September through 23 
October at the American University Museum in Washington, DC.   Curated 
for American University's Katzen Center for the Arts by eminent art historian 
Peter Selz and his collaborator Sue Kubly, "Hung Liu: Daughter of China, 
Resident Alien" is timed to coincide with the quadrennial frenzy. As this long
(and bizarre) campaign season reaches its climax, Liu has chosen to reflect 
upon two themes--refugees and heroines--that, while politically topical, are 
also deeply woven into her experience as a Chinese émigré, as an American 
citizen, and as a woman.

A part of the Fundación Pedro Meyer, ZoneZero Labs chose to feature Fausto's 
work due to his innovative use of photography in his practice.  Fausto says,
"I travelled around on the highway for two months.  This trip helped me explore
how humans interact.  I photographed people on the beach, waiting by their 
trucks, playing hockey, etc.  These urban portraits are the basis of the Crowd
Series, the guts of which sit in the foreground."

Walter Robinson review in THE Magazine

The May edition of Santa Fe's own THE Magazine carried a great review of 
our newest artist, Walter Robinson, for his exhibition "Placebo."  Our exhibition 
runs concurrently with Walter's Museum of New Mexico Alcove Exhibition.
Reviewer Richard Tobin thoughtfully compares a child's teeter-totter to Walter's 
"Teeter" which is a teeter-totter cannon. Richard deftly outlineses the nature of
Walter's placebo to the real thing.

in compelling new ways, infusing traditional themes and mediums with present-day 
ideas. The exhibition features artists from Asia as well as from the United States. 
Yako Hodo abstracts the traditional art of basket weaving, while works by Yang 
Yongliang and Xu Bing push Chinese ink painting into new media. First Look also

and three monographs, Holly's work may be found at the Museum of Contemporary Art 
Chicago, Norton Museum, Chicago Art Institute, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art,

Squeak Carnwath at the Lux Art Institute and 
upcoming at the diRosa

Squeak wraps up her residency at the Lux Art Institute
in Encinitas this month with an exhibition running from
13 June to 8 August 2015. To quote from their website, 
"At Lux, you don’t just see finished works of art; you see 
the artistic process firsthand, engaging with internationally 
recognized artists in a working studio environment."
A link to the exhibition is here.

A bit later, from 29 July to 27 September 2015, Squeak 
will have a solo exhibition at the diRosa.  The show,
Collection in Focus: Squeak Carnwath, features a group
of important and understudied works from the 1980s that 
are Carnwath pieces held in the di Rosa's extensive collection.  
The di Rosa wensite goes on to say about Squeak that she
"has been fiercely committed to painting for decades...
Carnwath often combines layers of words and images, 
fragments of things she comes across in daily life...Her 
paintings are just as much about the process as they are 
the product, becoming an extension of herself and her 
search for meaning, and allowing for imperfections and 
unplanned results.  A link to the exhibition catalog is here.

Turner Carroll with not one, but two of the top works.  Specifically, Hung Liu "Equus I"
and Shawn Smith "Absconder" were those featured in the article.

Rex Ray on the cover of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book 2014!

As a part of NM's growing interest in fine art (they collected a Rex Ray 
for their Walnut Creek, CA store in 2012) they chose a piece by our 
own Rex Ray for the cover of the 2014 Christmas catalog. According 
to the Neiman Marcus blog "For this issue of the book, Ray’s 
energetic swoops and swirls form a fanciful interpretation of NM’s house 
symbol, the butterfly. The piece began as a painting/collage, with digital 
flourishes and color-play added later. “This type of hybrid allows me to 
mix a wide variety of mediums--painting, block-printing, silk screening, 
as well as digitally augmented coloring and textures,” explains Ray. 
“In this way, the work references nature, ornament, technology, and

Manuel Neri visits the studio of Wanxin Zhang, 
and Hung Liu Wine Labels!

Lots of news from San Francisco of late.  Wanxin Zhang 
sent us this great photo of him with fellow sculptor, and 
good friend, Manuel Neri.  Neri is a long-time favorite of 
Turner Carroll, and a storied Bay Area artist having studied 
with art world legends Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer 
Bischoff.  Neri was also a big part of the influential Six 
Gallery with compatriots Joan Brown, Jay DeFeo and 
Bruce Conner.

Hung Liu's wine labels for Imagery Estate Winery are 
also making the rounds.  We found this image on 
www.thesavory.com.  According to the article by Ross 
Gardiner "The added attention given by the artwork has 
certainly helped to make them standout from the crowd. 
Every vintage of every variety has label art commissioned 
by the winery. Healdsburg-based artist Bob Nugent provided 
the original paintings, and since then has acted on a full-time 
basis as the curator. The winery has commissioned over 400 
pieces of art to date, and receives over 200 requests per 
year to show art on their bottles."

Great press coverage for our exhibition Survival

The month of August finds us featuring artists we have shown for a very long time
along with artists more recently represented.  All have the common experience of
growing up in single-party states where they ran up against the authorities.  Most
have since emigrated from their countries of origin.  The show features distinctly 
humanistic themes that struck a chord with the press.  The July 30, 2014 Santa Fe 
Reporter ran a big, beautiful image by Nele Zirnite, and the Santa Fe New Mexican 
Pasatiempo features a long article with large color images by Hung Liu going over 
her personal story.  We also got a nod from The Culture Trip out of London as one
of the top contemporary galleries in Santa Fe.  See the article here.

Rex Ray in important and fabulous exhibition at the McNay Museum

"Beauty Reigns: A Baroque Sensibility in Recent Painting" runs from 11 June through 
17 August at the McNay Museum in San Antonio, Texas.  Included in the show are
pieces by artworld favorites Beatriz Milhazes, Ryan McGinness and Annette Davidek.
The exhibition, curated by René Paul Barilleaux, "assembles thirteen emerging and 
mid-career abstract painters whose art is characterized in whole or part by high-key 
color, obsessive layering of surface imagery, use of overall and repeated patterns, 
stylized motifs, fragments of representation, and a tension between melancholy 
and the sublime. To date, little focus has been placed on works which celebrate the
exoticism, exuberance, and optimism found in the work of the painters assembled 
in Beauty Reigns."

London-based TheCultureTrip.com just finished a journey through Santa Fe.  We are very proud to 
be included in their 10 Best Contemporary Art Galleries list.  Their eagle-eyed writer Lauren Englund

Their prescient commentary included this passage: "Santa Fe presents a variety of cutting-edge 
exhibitions by up-and-coming, as well as significant blue-chip artists. These ten contemporary art 
galleries put Santa Fe on the map as a key destination for high quality art in New Mexico."

David Rothermel now at Turner Carroll

David Rothermel was born in Sunbury, Pennsylvania. He first studied at York Academy in 
York, Pennsylvania.  He later went on to study and graduate from the Pennsylvania Academy 
of Fine Art in Philadelphia.  Two of his summers were spent at Skowhegan School of Painting 
& Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine.  About his work David says, "For the last 25 years as an 
artist I have been painting and marveling over the true spiritual nature of this land.  My work 
reflect the grace and synchronicity of the western landscape and my relationship to it.  The 
gratitude I have for being able to participate in the phenomena that happens when the light, 
weather, space, and beauty come together is overwhelming.  My purpose with these works 
of art are to bathe the viewer in light--a visual baptism of color that saturates the soul, gives 
peace, serenity and emotional reflection.

Hung Liu in "I, You, We" at the Whitney Museum

Arranged into four sections, the show begins with a gallery devoted to “I.” Largely composed of 
works that address shifting perceptions of personal identity, this space will contain pieces by John 
Coplans, Robert Gober, Robert Mapplethorpe, Mark Morrisroe, Catherine Opie, Cindy Sherman, 
Kiki Smith, Carrie Mae Weems, and Francesca Woodman, among others. Though many of the 
works are self-portraits, others play with notions of individuality such as Jasper Johns’s Racing 
Thoughts (1983) and Glenn Ligon’s 1990 painting Untitled (I Do Not Always Feel Colored).

Moving into the “YOU” section, the perspective shifts outward as works portray intimate inter- actions between artists and their subjects. Within this section are Sally Mann’s pair of photo- graphs of her son in Jessie as Jessie and Jessie as Madonna (1990); Jim Dine’s etchings of his wife in Nancy Outside in July IV (1978) and Nancy Outside in July XXI: The Red Frame (1981); and Richard Avedon’s portrait, Bill Curry, Drifter, Interstate 40, Yukon Oklahoma 6/16/80 (1980). Included in this section are also works by Peter Hujar, Alfred Leslie, Hung Liu, Andrea Modica, Shirin Neshat, Jack Pierson, Richard Prince, David Salle, and Lorna Simpson. A link to the exhibition is here. 26 August 2013


Wanxin Zhang in Artslant

Wanxin and his exhibition here at Turner Carroll received notice as a 
Watchlist Artist in the August 2013 edition of ArtSlant.  Wanxin takes as his 
starting point the Yuan tomb warriors: thousands of actual-faced, terra cotta 
soldiers buried with China's first emporer in 210 B.C.  Bringing them forward 
in time, Wanxin's terra cotta figures are stripped of weapons, and given more 
modern accoutrements, suggesting a dialogue between China and the viewer.

Hung Liu Editorial: Recommendations in Visual Art Source

Hung Liu had a great write-up in Visual Art Source this August.  The journal 
VAS gave her solo exhibition at Turner Carroll an Editorial Recommendation 
in light of the cohesive and deep body of self-portraits she created documenting 
her years in China and her work in the countryside during the Cultural Revolution.  
This body of work "Portraits of a Chinese Self" is based on surviving photographs 
of Hung's early life in China.  This exhibition runs through 18 August 2013.  Art
patrons in San Francisco area can see Hung's work concurrent to this exhibition 
at the San Jose Museum of Art through 29 September 2013.

"Questions from the Sky" Hung Liu at the San Jose Museum of Art

The second installment of Hung Liu's touring solo museum shows opened 
last week at the San Jose Museum of Art.  According to the SJMA "This 
exhibition showcases surprising new, intimate work by Liu. She contemplates 
the cycles of life, death, and memory in an installation of three videos titled 
Black Rain, Candle, and Between Sky and Earth (2013). The videos are based 
on snapshots made daily with her iPhone over the course of the year following 
her mother’s death. These simple images of burning candles; fallen birds and 
deer; Buddha’s hand citrus fruit; and cloud formations poetically reflect Liu’s 
contemplative state of mind.

Turner Carroll Gallery in The Economist

Great article in The Economist on the Dallas Art Fair and the efforts 
of its organizers Chris Byrne and John Sughrue on making a distinctive 
and epic fair.  In this spirit, Dallas culturemap.com of 12 April 2013 quotes 
Michael Carroll “People here are starved for culture — no they’re devouring 
culture — and are willing to turn out."  Dallas is incredibly hungry for the arts, 
and the Dallas Art Fair delivers the goods.  83 galleries worth.  Read about it in
The Economist.

Hung Liu article in SquareCylinder

SquareCylinder.com ran a great article on Hung Liu and her solo retrospective
at the Oakland Museum of California and its now finished companion exhibition
at the Mills College Museum of Art.  The article gives us very good information
about Hung's past, and how it plays out in her work--the counter-revolutionary act 
of looking backward into the past rather than looking forward in the Maoist manner.

Jenny Honnert Abell article in Healdsburg Press Democrat

Jenny and her work are the subjects of a very nice and extensive article in the 
Healdsburg Press Democrat recently.  Specifically, the article highlights Jenny's 
work being commissioned by the Art in Embassies Program, and her trip to 
Senegal where the work will live in the new U.S. Embassy.  The Art in Embassy 
program is a program of the U.S. Department of State and a "legacy of President 
John F. Kennedy’s administration, designed to promote national pride and cultural 
identity by displaying American art throughout the world." The other artist selected
for the initial Dakar program is the fabulous Nick Cave of Soundsuits fame.

College, and her solo exhibitions at Mills College, the Oakland Museum

Josh Garber now at Turner Carroll Gallery

We are very pleased to say that we are now representing Josh Garber.
He is an exciting young artist out of Chicago who we have seen at
art fairs over the years.  About his process Josh explains, "My work is 
about interpreting gestures through mappings of coordinates. It is very 
influenced by digital pixilation which dissects images with thousands 
of dots. Similarly, I use thousands of aluminum bars to map and then 
construct each piece.”  Josh's work is in the collections of the Cincinnati
Art Museum, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and the
John Michael Kohler Arts Center.

Offerings, a rare opportunity to experience two of the Oakland-
based artist's most significant large-scale installations: Jui Jin Shan 
(Old Gold Mountain) (1994) and Tai Cang—Great Granary (2008). 
These Hung Liu images examine the themes of memory, history, 
and cultural identity through works that navigate the life-long liminal 
experiences of immigration and homecoming. Accompanied by related 
paintings and prints, Jui Jin Shan and Tai Cang serve as memorials to 
the past while acknowledging the rapidly changing cultural dynamics 
in contemporary China.  Hung Liu: Offerings runs through 17 March

Kathryn Davis.  Kathryn is the host of ArtBeat, a long-running
fine arts radio program that covers the Santa Fe scene in-depth.  
Michael and Kathryn dug into the guts of port-lanscape, and
Western painting, Turner Carroll's interest in the authenticity 
of place, digital terrain, and the changing nature of places over 
time, such as how a spot in Belgium can be the scene of a battle 
and later the site of a Google server farm.  The interview is

Georges Mazilu in Santa Fe for his Solo Exhibition

We had a great exhibition for Georges Mazilu here in the 
gallery.  The show was made all the better by Georges 
travelling from France to Santa Fe to see old friends, and 
meet new collectors.  And though we have shown Georges' 
work for nearly twenty years, there is always something 
we learn or a new bit we take away after an in-person 
visit from Georges.  Jusqu'à ce que la prochaine fois!

Greg Murr interview in New American Paintings Blog

There is a great interview with Greg Murr in the New American
Paintings Blog, on the back of his being included in the recent
NAP issue #101.  Greg goes in depth and wanders around his
particular vocabulary explaining what it is that he's up to.  An
illustrative quote that we really liked is Greg is "...not interested 
in who we are as much as how and what we are..."  In the
context of Greg's recent political work, this is a great to key
to decoding his enigmatic constructions.

Shawn Smith at the Smithsonian American Art Museum

More good things are happening for Shawn Smith.  He was just curated 
into a fabulous show at the Smithsonian American Art Museum called 
"40 Under 40."  The exhibition investigates evolving notions of craft 
within traditional media such as ceramics and metalwork, as well 
as in fields as varied as sculpture, industrial design, installation art, 
fashion design, sustainable manufacturing, and mathematics. The 
range of disciplines represented illustrates new avenues for the 
handmade in contemporary culture.  In addition Shawn was just 
included in a new book identifying the best new artists coming out

Fabulous Wolf Kahn resale 

Here at the gallery we just acquired a fabulous Wolf Kahn 
for resale.  This work, "In Isolation," is coming out of a private 
collection for the first time since it was purchased in 1991.
He is one of the best known student of Hans Hofmann, and
is regarded as America's finest landscape painter.  His work
appears as a synthesis of abstract and representational work
over which is cast a shadow of Mark Rothko.  Wolf's work is
represented in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney 
Museum of American Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, 
and the Los Angeles County Museum of art, among others.  
Please contact us at info@turnercarrollgallery.com if you are 
interested in this painting.  We are more than happy to assist.

Heroes exhibition and Construct reviews

We've gotten some very good write ups lately.  Kate Petley and Rusty 
Scruby's current exhibition Construct was written up by Leanne Goebel 
in Colorado Creates.  Also, we eceived a great review of the Hung Liu, 
Deborah Oropallo and Squeak Carnwath show Heroes in Art Ltd.  
It's a great issue of a great magazine, and has lots of coverage of 
Santa Fe and Albuquerque in the July/August issue.

Construct: Rusty Scruby and Kate Petley on the front cover 
of the 15 June 2012 Santa Fe New Mexican: Pasatiempo

We open a fabulous show tonight, Construct.  Featuring Kate
Petley and Rusty Scruby, this exhibition examines two dynamic 
and unique artists working with complex and immersive two- 
and three-dimensional visual planes.  Both artists rearrange 
the obvious to create intra-artwork relationships.  In a way 
their artwork collaborates with itself through the practice of 
layering. To stand infront of Kate’s and Rusty’s work is like looking through a bug’s eye and simultaneously seeing forever. 15 June 2012


Shawn Smith in Wired Magazine

Newly minted Turner Carroll artist Shawn Smith has an

Greg Murr and Shawn Smith now at Turner Carroll Gallery

We are very pleased to say that we are representing two new artists,
Greg Murr and Shawn Smith.  Greg is an artist we know well, having 
shown his work in the 1990s before he moved to Germany.  His work 
is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art and the 
Progressive Collection, among others.  Shawn Smith came to us via
collectors in Dallas.  His work is sculptural with an aesthetic built on
the digital idea of a pixel but rendered in wood.  His most recent work
is focused on how we experience nature through technology.

For Murr, the arc of nature runs deep within his practice.  A fascination 
with the way the observable world exists outside our everyday awareness
guides his work.  Since 2008, Murr's work has featured dogs with their
noses to the ground, relying upon instincts to guide them, loose among 
a world of tangled pearls or fashion’s latest high-heels.

Hung Liu at the Belvedere Museum in Vienna

We just returned from a fabulous visit to Vienna.  Visits to the 
MUMOK, Kunsthistoriches Museum, Akademie der Bildenden Künste, 
the Leopold Museum and the Upper Belvedere were capped by the 
opening for the exhibition GOLD.  This comprehensive examination 
of the use of gold in artwork from Tiepolo to contemporary time 
featured a work by Hung Liu.  Both the preview and the opening 
were packed with patrons filling the rooms of the former palace; 
rooms that were by themselves awash in gold.  The exhibition runs 
through June 2012.

Deborah Oropallo in D Magazine

Turner Carroll Gallery friend and uber-designer, Carson See, is written 
about in the January 2012 D Magazine along with the work of Deborah 
Oropallo.  Carson's new line of furniture 1818, is featured at the David 
Sutherland Showroom in Dallas.  Perfectly paired with the work of Deborah, 
the conjunction of male and female sensibilities in Carson's 1818 line works 
brilliantly.  A copy of the article may be downloaded here.

Hung Liu at the International Conference on Chinese Women 
and Visual Representation

In a first of its kind conference in Shanghai in December, Hung Liu 
not only designed the poster, but was a speaker.  The conference 
itself focused on work by women in many fields, and on feminist art.  
It was also the first time gay and lesbian groups were invited to the 
conference.  Hung reports that the women artists, filmmakers, 
academics and others she met were incredible, making breathtaking 
work.  In Hung's words, "There is hope!"  All the best in 2012!

Wanxin Zhang article in Ceramics: Art and Perception

Julie Beal writes a great and interesting review of Wanxin's work in 
the context of his solo Ten-Year Survey at the Bellevue Arts Museum.
Julie digs deep in Wanxin's Chinese-American-ness, connecting work
by great American sculptors like Robert Arneson with the Qin terra-
cotta warriors.  Eloquent discourse on  the contrapuntal forces in 
Wanxin's work--individual figures in the context of a collective--
make this article a great read.  Kudos!  A link to the article is here.

Big Success at Inaugural Texas Contemporary Art Fair in Houston

If you weren't in Houston 20 to 23 October, you missed a great art fair.
In four days at the George R. Brown Covention Center 10,000 people 
attended the fair.  There were 55 dealers from across the U.S., with 
the greatest concentration from Texas and the coasts.  We were the

American Art Museum Senior Curator Joann Moser does a superb job 
delivering us all sorts of fascinating stories during a conversation with 
Hung Liu.  The Smithsonian will host a touring retrospective of Hung Liu's 
work that originates at the Oakland Museum of California in 2013.  In 
preparation for this major exhibition, Turner Carroll will host a large show

Drew Tal collected by New Britain Museum of American Art

Kudos to Drew Tal!  His "Porcelain Promises" was acquired for 
the museum's permanent photography collection. The NBM is 
one of the nation’s most dynamic art museums which exhibits 
its permanent collection and special exhibitions on widely diverse 
subjects in ways that combine the highest aesthetic standards 
with engaging and intellectually accessible presentations. Tal's 
"Porcelain Promises" is inspired by the tradition of ancestral 
paintings, a Chinese commemorative tradition in which wealthy 
families depict their ancestors in fine paintings. This particular 
pair of portraits symbolizes the fragility of relationships between 
lovers, generations, cultures and nations.  Drew Tal's work is 
included in private collections around the world as well as in 
the permanent collection of the Norton Museum in West Palm 
Beach, Florida.
