Kim Keever’s magnificent work Sunset 44d, is on view at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, Missouri, for the museum’s celebration of the 20th anniversary of their Oppenheimer Collection. Sunset 44d is also included in the 340 page Oppenheimer Collection catalogue, for which Andrea S. Norris writes:

“Playing with our perceptions of the natural, Keever’s images first compel a struggle to understand their subjects, then inspire wonder at the artist’s creativity and technical achievement of faux verisimilitude, and finally suggest troubling aspects of humankind’s relationship with nature….”

Please visit Kim Keever’s artist page for further information.

In honor of its 25th anniversary, the Microsoft Art Collection produced a book featuring keystone works from the collection, called Microsoft Art Collection: 25 Years of Celebrating Creativity and Inspiring Innovation.

Of 5,000 artworks in the collection, just 80 were selected for this publication including the works previously exhibited at David B. Smith Gallery by Vernon and Euclide.

The Microsoft Art Collection book is available for purchase here.

Molly Dilworth was featured as part of the U.S. Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale. On view from August 29 – November 25, 2012, the theme of the U.S. Pavilion is Spontaneous Interventions: design actions for the common good. Molly’s featured project, Paintings for Satellites, exemplifies the theme of this exhibition, as her large-scale rooftop paintings at once play with concepts of painting, fine art, and viewership and visibility, while simultaneously reducing energy costs for the building and greenhouse emissions over time.
