Michael Klein Arts LLC will present, Grace Hartigan 1960-1965, The Perry Collection,
an exhibition of paintings and collages that represent Hartigan's
Abstract Expressionist style as it evolved in the early 1960s. Hartigan
was a key innovator amongst painters of the New York School and was the
only female artist included in the traveling exhibit The New American Painting,
designed to introduce European audiences to American art. The variety
of paintings in this anticipated exhibition will highlight Hartigan’s
style of vivid color and texture painted on a large scale. The fair will
provide the perfect opportunity to reintroduce Hartigan's work to a
professional audience of dealers, curators and critics. After its
exhibition at X Contemporary, the collection will tour to other
institutions both in the US and abroad.
an art consultant based in New York City and East Hampton that has
served as an advisor to many respected contemporary collections, will
showcase her expertise in post modern, contemporary and emerging art.
Presenting iconic handmade postcard collages created by Jean-Michel Basquiat early in his career, alongside work by renowned UK based mural artist, Hush,
Willoughby Art Advisory will give viewers the opportunity to consider
the genesis of street art incorporation into the New York gallery scene
and its global evolution through today. This thought-provoking range of
work will also include work by artists Peter Dayton, Dora Frost and
photography by the artistic team Cyril Christo & Marie Wilkinson.
Castle Fitzjohns Gallery presents the original Pop Shop sign, painted by Keith Haring
for the Lafayette St. gallery in 1986. The 10-panel Pop Shop Sign
conceived and executed by Keith Haring in collaboration with Andre
Charles extended across and around the building during its renovation
beginning in the winter of 1986. The sign was made from an original
sketch drawn by Haring and served as a temporary placard until it was
removed from the building in the fall of 1987. At the time of its
removal by the City of New York, artist Robin Van Arsdol acquired it for
his private collection where it has remained ever since. It has been
exhibited internationally and was featured in Germany in 2010 and and
was then sent to an exhibition at the Russian State Art Museum in Moscow
in May 2011.

present a survey of work by emerging, mid-career and established
Colombian artists, titled Colombia N.O.W. This

Green City Market showcases sustainable practices. From that first
year in 1998 next to the Chicago Theatre to the present time, Green City
Market has morphed into Chicago's most vital farmer's market that
industry leader Alice Waters calls "the best sustainable market in the
Chicago's Green City Market has been named one of America's Top 10
Farmer's Markets by USA Today. Located in Lincoln Park, the independent
nonprofit market was founded in 1998 by the late Abby Mandel, chef,
author, and entrepreneur to encourage local, sustainable agriculture.
Now in its 17th year, the market has come a long way since its humble
beginnings. What started as a handful of vendors in an alley next to the
Chicago Theater has since grown into the best and biggest farmers
market in Chicago with more than 60 vendors and 175,000 visitors per
Green City Market operates a second outdoor market at Fulton Market

Hilary Sawchuck interviews Pattie Boyd, Henry Diltz, and Carinthia West
ICONIC PHOTOGRAPHS ARE ON DISPLAY IN AN EXHIBIT CALLED "VISIONS OF A
MAGIC TIME" AT THE HILTON | ASMUS. IS THERE ANYTHING ABOUT A
PARTICULAR PHOTO YOU TOOK THAT MAKES YOU SMILE BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT'S
GOING ON BEHIND THE CAMERA?
CARINTHIA WEST: Quite
a few. The one of Mick [Jagger] and Linda Ronstadt is a favorite of my
own pictures just because I know he was thinking naughty thoughts, and
she was thinking romantic thoughts. Say no more.
PATTIE BOYD: There
is a photograph I took in India when we were meditating with Maharishi
[Mahesh Yogi]. The Beatles were writing music for "The White Album".
They were all pretty friendly and it was a creative time, but I've got
one shot of Paul [McCartney] and John [Lennon] sitting together. John is
just looking at Paul, and Paul is making some sort of face, and I just
wish I knew what had been said! There is something going on!
HENRY DILTZ: A lot
of the photos I took were taken on adventures. For album covers with a
group we would try to get out of town away from girlfriends, managers
and telephones. We had no cell phones in those days, so we'd go spend
the night in the desert, go somewhere far away from town and spend a day
or two and have a real adventure. You could get some great pictures
that way rather than just standing in a studio with lights.
FROM DINNER PARTIES WITH ROYALTY TO BEING FRIENDS WITH MUSIC LEGENDS, WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST MEMORABLE DRINK YOU'VE HAD?
PATTIE: The first
time that I came to America with [former husband] George Harrison. We
stayed at the Plaza Hotel and we were 21-22ish, and I had my first
margarita. I couldn't believe it! It was the most delicious, most
fantastic drink and to have it there in this glamorous setting with
George... it was beautiful. It was fabulous.
