Labor Day

Labor Day weekend is upon us. It conjures up many images: the end of summer; last weekend at the shore; barbecues; sales of appliances; going back to school; and in New Orleans a huge festival of the LGBT community, Southern Decadence. The image that doesn’t seem to resonate is the original intent of the day […]

Back to the Sea

“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came”. President John F. Kennedy / September 14, 1962 August heralds the end of Summer and the last few weeks before the start of school. […]

Passing Through

The young girl peered out of the window of Stone + Press onto the dark mud streets of early 18th century New Orleans. Claudia was like any other 10-year old girl anticipating a visit to the candle-lit antique doll store across the street. One difference – Claudia was a Vampire. Anne Rice’s “Interview with a […]

Walking on the Dark Side

Walking on the Dark Side As I watched the news from Helsinki yesterday, I saw President Trump lose his way. He seemed to forget his oath of office “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”. In disgust I turned off the news. Out of window of my house, lights and cameras […]

Good Things Come in Small Packages

Good Things Come in Small Packages Size does not always matter. Artists have traditionally created wonderful imagery designed for intimacy rather than wall power. We focus this week on original limited edition works that speak with a strong voice despite being able to fit in the palm of one’s hand. What these images lack in […]

Independence Day

Independence Day  This week we celebrate our nation’s independence at a time when facts are being questioned and truth is under attack. Some speak of family values while separating children from their families. Others turn their backs on immigrants while ignoring the fact that this country is built on the talents provided by people who […]

Summertime – a State of Mind

Summertime – a State of Mind “Summer was on the way; Jem and I awaited it with impatience. Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the tree house; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched […]

New Orleans / The Tricentennial

New Orleans / The Tricentennial “America has only three cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Everywhere else is Cleveland.” – Tennesse Williams “Most Americans never work as hard as when they’re trying to appear normal, and in New Orleans, we just don’t bother with that.” – Harry Shearer In 2018, the city of New […]

Animals

Animals In my tenure at Tulane I played a very small role in clearing some bureaucratic hurdles that enabled Adam, a young man from Kentucky, to pursue his dream of enlisting students to raise service puppies-in-training. Adam was a student intern in my office and where Adam went, his golden retriever service puppy, Kipper, went too.  […]

Print People Connect Past with Present

Print People Connect Past with Present Prints connect people and places in so many ways and I want to share how rewarding those connections can be.  Ann and I value the many friendships we made through our participation with IFPDA’s New York Print Fair, especially our continuing banter with Susan and Bernard Pratt of Pratt […]

Rural England Engraved by Stanley Anderson

Stanley Anderson Prints: A Catalogue Raissone Royal Academy Books, 2015.

In Her Own Words

When we look at an image, we often wonder what the artist had in mind when he/she was in the process of creation. Most artists don’t want to divulge their thinking because they want the viewer to bring their own personal interpretation to it. Caroline Durieux (1896-1989) was usually adamant about not divulging her thought […]

Social Media, Now and Then

The majority of freshmen entering college this Fall were born in 1999. In their world it was possible to: Have a Facebook friend by the age of 5 Tweet at age 7 (One can only imagine the tweets that might have been sent by a seven-year-old Donald Trump.) Call a grandparent on an iPhone and […]

S+P Take Two

The journey began in 1970 when I paid $50 for my first print, a color lithograph by Danish artist, Karel Appel (1921-2006). I was hooked!  More prints followed and I was helped along the way by a friendship with artist and professor, Caroline Durieux (1896-1989) and helpful guidance from Sylvan Cole of Associated American Artists […]
