David B. Smith Gallery is very pleased to announce the release of the first dedicated publication on the artwork of Gregory Euclide. The 13 x 9 inch hardcover monograph is 96 pages and contains 119 color reproductions. It is available in an edition of 500, with each copy signed and numbered in pencil by Euclide.

Contributors to the book include Amy Gilman, associate director and curator of contemporary art at the Toledo Museum of Art who states, “Euclide’s work brings new dimension to the tradition of landscape within art history. He does not confine his interest to our collective ideal of landscape, but actively engages with landscape as we actually live in it.” The book contains additional contributions from curators Denise Markinosh (MASS MoCA), Brooke Grucella (University of Arizona), Sarah Tanguy (ART in Embassies, U.S. Department of State), and Michael Chavez. Molly MacFadden, of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, contributed her blog post from the museum’s website. The post was written during Euclide’s residency at the museum while he was preparing his installation for the 2011 exhibition Otherworldly. Musician Justin Vernon of Bon Iver shares some poetic thoughts on Euclide. David Pescovitz (co-editor of Boing Boing) and Leanne Goebel (independent critic and curator) have also contributed to the book, along with Michael Cina (creative director of Cina Associates) and Don Myhre (mentor.)

The book is published by David B. Smith Gallery, and was printed and bound in the United States in October 2011.

Otherworldly at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York
Review by Barbara A. MacAdam, ARTnews Magazine, October, 2011

“….Gregory Euclide’s Held within what hung open and made to lie without escape (2011) was a standout for complexity – a landscape that spills from the art container into the gallery. It doesn’t simply create a parallel reality; it links art and nature, the real and the imagined, and the produced and the reproduced, showing that there is no single reality….”

We are pleased to announce both Gregory Euclide and Kim Keever’s inclusion in Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities, on view through September 18th at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City. The exhibition depicts artificial environments and alternative realities, either as sculpture or as subjects for photography and video. It has received critical acclaim, and we urge all who can to visit the show at the Museum which is located at Columbus Circle.
