OMG! My long-lost website is being updated! I had given it up for dead. Well, lots of stuff has happened in the last 2 years. Watch this space!
Hello! It's 2013!
Opening in February, I will have work in Love Me Tender , a group show of artists who work with, yep,money. Thanks, Bellevue!
And in December Richard Levy took my work to The Miami Project, a new fair running concurrently with Art Basel Miami Beach. The gallery made one wall of their booth a benefit for artists and arts professionals affected by Hurricane Sandy. Thank you Richard Levy Gallery!
The second venue of "Remix: Selections from the International Collage Center" opened this week at the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art in Sedalia, MO. Go ICC!
Other recent and current shows:
I have some new currency drawings in Relocated, a group exhibition of Artadia grant awardees at the new Artadia space in Dumbo (which stands for District Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, in Brooklyn). The show continues through October 30. Location is 111 Front Street and hours are Monday through Friday, 12-6. They will also be open this weekend for the Dumbo Arts Festival.
I think I'm forgetting something else... well, it'll come to me and I'll post it here. If you're on Facebook, you can look at my
there (it's easier to update than this old thing).
Hey bay area! I'm in a show curated by the students of the Mills College Museum Studies Program called Femmescapes, which includes work by Louise Bourgeois, Ana Mendieta, Shirin Neshat, Kiki Smith, Sarah Sze and other incredible women. Thanks to Rich and Lenore Pereira Niles for hosting this exhbition and for being early and enthusiastic collectors of my work.
In other news, my new dollar bill drawings were featured in DETONATE: Chaos and Consumerism at Denise Bibro Fine Art in February.
And due to my klutzitude, this news, from last year, was not posted here. I am happy to announce that I have a piece in the collection of the International Collage Center. Their first exhibition is "Remix: Selections from the International Collage Center" and is up until December 4 at Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA. Curated by Pavel Zoubok & Rachael Lawe, this show will travel over the next two years to several university galleries. I will update when I know the schedule.
Another thing: I have an artist's page on Facebook. It's quicker and easier to add stuff there than here, so if you're on Facebook, check it out.
I just got some great coverage at artcritical in the form of this story. Thank you David Cohen!
I just became a US Artist. What is that? Well, it's sort of a "kickstarter" for artists' projects. I don't have a projected posted for funding yet, but check out some of the other artists' projects on the site. And I'll keep you posted.
I just received the catalog from the Federal Reserve Board of recent acquisitions to their collection. It's very nicely produced, my work is well-photographed - front and back - and I have a full page. I don't know what the hell Ben Bernanke is up to, but the people at the Fine Arts Program there are fabulous! And thanks to some wonderful collectors for donating a work of mine to the collection.
I know I've been slacking off here. But if you're on Facebook check out my Artist's Page there. Type "Oriane Stender, Artist" into the search box. Feel free to "like" the page and browse through, comment, etc. Thanks!
I have another letter in the NY Times. Sunday Magazine this time. Check it out.
Thanks to ncartblog for this rave review of Empire Falls. I feel distinctly soulful.
"Empire Falls" opened on Thursday, March 4. See pix under "artwork", then under "new york times".
I've added some images of "Fallen Quilt" (formerly Dead Soldier Project) in progress. You can seem them under artwork, new york times.
I'm working away for my show at Flanders Gallery in Raleigh opening in March. There are so many dead soldiers to work with. I'm reminding why I stopped working on this piece a few years back. It will never be finished as there will always be more dead soldiers.
Census 2 now available on Amazon UK.
News: Nancy Baker and I will be in a two-person show in March called "Empire Falls" at the Flanders Gallery in Raleigh, NC.
News: I've been published in Ireland! A piece that I read at the Last Wednesday Open Mic
reading series at Rocky Sullivan's in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a bicontinental reading series sponsored by Seven Towers Agency in Dublin, has been published in their second anthology, Census 2. I haven't seen a copy yet - it's hot off the press and hasn't made its way across the pond yet, but I will post a link when it's available to buy. Not sure if it will be in bookstores in the US, but it will be available on amazon and from Seven Towers directly. One euro from every sale will go to AWARE, an Irish volunteer organization that combats depression.
We're back up! With a new address! (It's now orianestender dot net instead of dot com.) Still working out the bugs, including getting the captions put back under the images so you know what you're looking at. More to come!
I am continuously updating images here. Check out new images in all the categories under artwork.
