I know that the really great/international ones are managed by a few big companies. But as to the local ones, I am not so sure, although it would make sense that it would follow the same model. I had thought that the local ones such as the Old Town, Lincoln Park, and the Lakeview East Art Fairs were managed by the local community non-profits (e.g., the Old Town Triangle Association) or the local Chamber of Commerce, but I am not really so sure that they are the ones that really put the art fairs together.

Let me ask some people and get back to you on this...

And good luck, Chicagophotoshop, on your first art fair. Sometimes, it may take a few fairs to get a local following. Let us know here what art fairs you will be doing. I would probably meet you in one of them, if not the one you mentioned.

It's never too early to subscribe to the Lyric Opera's 2008/2009 Season.

The music for the Countess Geschwitz (Lulu's lesbian lover) in Act 1 is worth the price of subscription.

Do any of you remember the 1987 Production of Lulu at the Lyric? I remember some of the older patrons leaving in a huff. I would expect that after 20 years, the Lyric Opera-goers are now a bit more forgiving of Berg.

This is more a private acquisition on my part, but as I'm all for discussing the subject of collectors and collections in Chicago, I might as well add this here.

---------------------------------------------

A pair of literati (Bunjinga) scroll paintings by the Japanese artist Nakabayashi Chikuto (1776-1853)

Chikuto (1776-1853) moved to Kyoto with Yamamoto Baitsu in 1803 to join the art circle of Rai Sanyo. He went on to author many theoretical and practical guides for literati painting. His works are held in the collections of the Ashmolean, British, Freer, Seattle, V&A and Indianapolis museums.

Painted in the eighth year of the Bunsei era, 1825.

Field of memes
Mario Ybarra Jr. throws a curveball at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Excerpt:

Many have suffered for their art, but only Mario Ybarra Jr. chewed more than 100 pieces of Wrigley’s Winterfresh gum for the Art Institute of Chicago’s Focus series. The 34-year-old Los Angeles artist is participating in Focus—which highlights emerging artists and lesser-known work by established ones—at an exciting time in his career. Earlier this year, Ybarra’s Scarface Museum (2006) was featured in the Whitney Biennial: This collection of Scarface memorabilia, which belongs to an incarcerated friend of Ybarra’s, embedded the struggles of the artist’s Latino community in a traditional museum environment...

This exhibit illustrates the important contributions by the architect CROMBIE TAYLOR, photographer AARON SISKIND, AND IIT'S INSTITUTE OF DESIGN – in the early 1950s—work with revolutionary impact on our understanding of Louis Sullivan, an architect of central importance to the history of American architecture and Chicago.
This exhibit is the first remounting of Siskind’s 1954 Institute of Design photographic survey of Sullivan’s architecture and the first showing of Sullivan’s polychromatic Auditorium Building and Garrick Building stencils since the 1960s. It coincides with the publication of co-curator Jeffrey Plank’s new book, Aaron Siskind and Louis Sullivan: The Institute of Design Photo Section Project.

EXHIBIT HOURS: Daily 10 am – 3 pm (closed July 4 – 6)

ADMISSION: $5

The Sun-Times review of the CSO opening concert this summer in Ravinia:

Bell, Slatkin and CSO lead rousing journey
CONCERT REVIEW | Sibelius concerto takes dramatic twists and turns

July 11, 2008

BY WYNNE DELACOMA


Joshua Bell at the Ravinia Festival on Wedneday night. (Russell Jenkins/Ravinia Festival (Courtesy Ravinia Festival)

http://www.suntimes.com/entertainmen...-rav11.article

Excerpt:

Wednesday isn't usually the most festive day of the week, but you wouldn't have known that from the thousands of people who found their way to the Ravinia Festival for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's first concert of its summer season. The pavilion was full, and the lawns were crowded for the concert Wednesday night, conducted by Leonard Slatkin, that featured Joshua Bell in the Sibelius Violin Concerto.

True, the weather was balmy, and the program all but guaranteed a packed house, offering a popular young soloist and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 as the closer. But the large, enthusiastic audience was an encouraging sign for the rest of the CSO's Ravinia schedule, which includes some truly solid fare: Bernard Haitink's festival debut next Wednesday with the CSO in Mahler's Seventh Symphony, Ravinia music director James Conlon in Mahler's "Symphony of a Thousand'' on July 26 and a pair of Mozart operas in the Martin Theatre in mid-August.

Slatkin knows how to rev up a crowd, and after a noisy "Star-Spangled Banner,'' he got down to real symphonic business with an alternately moody and noisy foray into George Enescu's familiar "Romanian Rhapsody'' in A Major, Op. 11, No. 1. The CSO winds and strings sounded lush yet full of energy in the leisurely folk tunes that opened the rhapsody, but the blaring brass turned harsh in the fast and furious closing sections...

At the Newberry Library:

http://www.newberry.org/




Chicago's Urban Nature: A Guide to the City's Architecture + Landscape


Sally A. Kitt Chappell

Saturday, July 12, 11:00 am
Speaker: Sally A. Kitt Chappell

Historian Sally A. Kitt Chappell sees Chicago in the forefront of global efforts to end the divide between town and country by bringing into harmony buildings and landscapes, culture and nature, commerce and leisure. In Chicago's Urban Nature, she provides new insights into such historic Chicago sites as Jens Jensen's Garfield Park Conservatory and Frederick Law Olmsted's Jackson Park. Then she takes us to innovative contemporary green spaces they influenced, from City Hall's rooftop garden to the North Lawndale Green Youth Farm and the new Millennium Park. The sixty-six beautiful spaces described in the guidebook meld art, architecture, and ecology. Far more than retreats - they're now essential parts of the cultural life of the modern city.

Chicago's Urban Nature will be for sale at the Newberry Library's A. C. McClurg Bookstore. A book signing will follow the talk.

Admission is free. No reservation is required.

The Newberry Library gratefully acknowledges the National Endowment for the Humanities and Mr. and Mrs. Charles C. Haffner for their generous support of public programming. Major funding is also provided by Richard and Barbara Franke, the MacLean-Fogg Family, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew W. McGhee, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew McNally, and the McCormick Tribune Foundation.

Final Weekend at the Elmhurst Art Museum:



image hosted on flickr




http://www.elmhurstartmuseum.org/




Susan Giles: Splice



Chicago artist Susan Giles will showcase Cantilevered Eave a life-size, white foamcore replica of a small segment of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House... Giles will also present her most recent work in a new series, UNTITLED, a series of paper models of iconic buildings that have been spliced together to create an amalgam. A red Neuschwanstein Castle settled on top of a green Cathedral of Notre Dame, a lavender Himeji Castle slid into the side of a brown Parthenon and an orange Big Ben collided with a blue Leaning Tower of Pisa. Each model is made from a single, solid color of paper so that when it is merged with another building the elements of each remain visible...


Cat Chow: Speak Softly



Speak Softly is an exhibition of recent works by New York artist and designer Cat Chow, best known for her intricate craftsmanship that transforms everyday objects into garments and works of art that are elegantly simple in form, yet complex in construction.

Speak Softly takes the viewer into a world of systems where the rational and irrational intermesh. Chow’s work, though grounded in mathematics, still maintains an emotional consciousness. Furthermore, these works are amalgamations of masculine and feminine qualities that seduce the viewer through her use of industrial materials, repetitive hand gestures, and inventive fabrications...

Painting Forensics—Investigating Northern Renaissance Art
7/17, 6-7 p.m.
Fullerton Hall
Free

Molly Faries, Indiana University-Bloomington, presents a lecture that coincides with the exhibition New Light on Old Masters and the publication of its related catalogue, Northern European and Spanish Paintings before 1600.

This lecture highlights the technical methods of investigation that figure in both the catalogue and exhibition. The lecture will draw on the speaker's expertise in the field of technical investigation and in infrared reflectography (IRR) in particular, a technique that discloses the hidden layout sketches in paintings. Many of the examples to be shown derive from what the speaker calls her "IRR expeditions"—field trips that have taken her to countless churches and museums in this country and Europe. One part of the lecture will cover recent advances in infrared technology and imaging techniques. Another section will deal with some of the more interesting drawing and painting procedures that have been discovered in northern European works from this period. Finally, the speaker will comment on the ways the combined evidence can lead to a broader understanding of workshop practices and art production in an age of increasing commercial opportunities.


Hans Memling. Virgin and Child, 1485/90. Mr. and Mrs. Martin A. Ryerson Collection.
