500 museum professionals are gathered this week. Ingrid and other authors were invited to do a book signing. Wonderful group.
Thank you everyone for making last Saturday’s reception (August 3rd) an amazing success. We didn’t get an accurate count, but close to two hundred collectors and fans came through to see Ingrid’s newest work. It is truly an honor to have so many appreciate and enjoy her work. Ingrid is so grateful for all the support and enthusiasm. A very special thank you to Ania and Gunther of the Forre Fine Art Gallery for hosting Ingrid’s work and of course to Jeff and Laurent for your dedication. It was an evening we will long remember. And luckily we had two very talented photographers to document the event, our children, Isabella and Teagan.
Ingrid’s new book, Madness of the Muses – the Art of Ingrid Dee Magidson is in print and available!
From the back cover:
Ingrid Dee Magidson’s art career began just over six years ago. In that brief time, she has had 15 solo exhibitions (most of those sellout shows), a museum exhibition, her work included twice at the Hermitage Museum Foundation Gala in New York City, numerous magazine features and a loyal international group of art collectors which include: the Alpina Gstaad, Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith and Jackie Bezos. The Madness of the Muses is a richly illustrated look at the life and work of this rising art star. Magidson’s unique style combines the poetic paintings of the Renaissance with contemporary and antique materials to form works of sublime beauty. Each piece is imbued with a sense of spirit, as if time has stopped and we are looking at people long gone, but brought back to life in Magidson’s extraordinary work. One collector describes his experience:
It is as if the artist has compressed 500 years into a single work of art. These few fragile layers of antique objects, paint and butterflies are arranged in such a way that I can see into the very depths of a stranger’s soul. I begin to pull away, but I can’t stop looking.
Here are a few glimpses inside of the book:
