Sarah Charlesworth's 1980 Series STILLS Reprised at the Art Institute of Chicago
by BWW News Desk - Aug 29, 2014

Stills, a photographic series shown by Sarah Charlesworth (1947-2013) in February 1980, helped to define a photography-driven movement in American art that remains a cornerstone of contemporary art: the Pictures Generation. The series of appropriated newspaper photographs, cropped and blown up to 78 inches tall, depicts people falling or leaping from buildings at life-threatening heights. The very title “Stills” evokes a movie still, or a moment frozen in time. These images are particularly haunting in an era when selfies and social media have partly eclipsed the tabloid press. These over-lifesize images of frozen moments ask us to consider how our most private, existential experiences will play out in the public eye. (more...)

Blue Dome Press Releases New Book by Ilber Ortayli
by BWW News Desk - Aug 28, 2014

The Ottoman Empire was once the biggest empire on earth, reigning over much of Eastern Europe and the Middle East for over six hundred years. For much of that period, Topkapi Palace, an architectural jewel on Istanbul's historic peninsula, was the heart of the Empire. It was where the Sultan not only made important political decisions, but also where he lived with his family. In his new book, 'Private and Royal Life in the Ottoman Palace,' Ottoman historian and former director of the Topkapi Palace Museum Ilber Ortayli gives an unprecedented look at what life was like inside the palace. He explores the parts of the palace where decisions that changed an empire were made, and then looks at how the Ottoman court actually lived, dispelling many misperceptions in the process. Using both text and photos, and exploring politics, architecture, and culture, Ortayli deepens our understanding of what life was like during one of the most remarkable empires in human history. About the author: Ilber Ortayli, professor of history and the former director of the Topkapi Palace Museum, is the author of numerous books and articles on Ottoman history and is a frequent speaker on history and culture during the Ottoman era. He lives in Istanbul, Turkey. 'Private and Royal Life in the Ottoman Palace' Author: Ilber Ortayli ISBN: 978-1-935295-45-7, 6 by 9, paperback, $11.95, 159 pages Publication: August 2014 Published by Blue Dome Press Distributed by National Book Network, 800-462-6420800-462-6420, customercare@nbnbooks.com About the Publisher: Blue Dome Press is a publisher of Islamic tradition and spirituality, Islamic history and arts books.

From the Pennsylvania coal mines of her youth, to our polluted waterways, to the cosmos, to the parks of New York and New England (Artist-in-Residence at Acadia National Park), Ms. Demsky shares the highlights of her career as a fine artist in this 60-year retrospective exhibition. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University in 1958 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art & Design, Ms. Demsky began paintings of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company, which were exhibited at City Center Gallery and Lincoln Center. Travel has been a big influence in her outpouring of canvases, as she received numerous art residencies, awards and fellowships from all over the world creating landscape, abstract and environmental paintings. Her outer space artworks were inspired by an invitation to witness a launch at the NASA Space Center in Florida after receiving the Christa McAuliffe Fellowship. Her exhibition at the National Gallery of Costa Rica reflected her love of painting 'en plein air' on canvas and Mylar. A resident of Larchmont, NY, Ms. Demsky has been a member of the Mamaroneck Artists Guild for 42 years and is a member of the Katonah Museum Art Association, the Pen & Brush, and National Association of Women's Artists.
