Dallas Museum of Biblical Art Exhibition

Life's Journey 47 x 25"

Life’s Journey 47 x 25″

Ingrid’s work will be featured along with 5 other artists at a special exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Biblical Art opening October 18, 2018.  This exhibition will highlight 7 of her most iconic layered works spanning 8 years.  Each piece is a jewel and several have been pulled from Ingrid’s private collection.

I was honored when asked to participate in this exhibition.  I wanted them to have my best, so I borrowed several pieces from Galerie Zuger in Vail and filled in from my personal collection, special pieces that I have held for years for their special meaning to me.

Predestiny 55 x 49"

Predestiny 55 x 49″

The work to your left, titled Predestiny is one of the works featured in the exhibition.  It is about how we come to this life with a destiny.  The central figure is revealing our destiny.  In the lower portion are two dolls representing two lives.  The one on the left is the fighter or warrior, doing what’s right, changing the world.  And the doll on the right represents the harmonious life, the mother, the nurturer.  In the center of the piece is a clock, representing time; that on one hand there is a limit to how long we have, but on the other hand that it’s never too late to choose a different path.

The Dallas Museum of Biblical Art is best known for its rare religious works, but regularly exhibits contemporary artists with a spiritual element.  They have expanded their venue with the belief that art, by its nature, is a spiritual endeavor.  They were first introduced to Ingrid’s work in 2014, clearly impressed and have been in active communication until they were able to host this current exhibition.

There will be two private receptions with the artist in attendance:

Private Reception: Thursday, October 18, 5-8pm
Private Reception: Friday, October 19, 2-7pm

If you’d like to attend one the private receptions, you will need to RSVP by October 10, 2018 to Galerie Zuger Vail, either by email: art@galeriezugervail.com or by phone: 970-476-5619

Public Viewing begins on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 10 to 3pm

Book by Ingrid Dee Magidson, Madness of the Muses

Madness of the Muses

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:

Back from NYC – Hermitage Museum Benefit a HUGE Success

We returned from New York City a few days ago.   Our hearts go out to all the people of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut who are still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.  For the most part Manhattan looked pretty good (excluding some of the southern part).  New Yorkers are a hearty bunch and they got things up and running very quickly.  We visited our dear friend Eva Cellini in New Jersey and that was another story.  Trees and light poles littered the streets.  The damage took one’s breath away.  It is obviously much better now, but we certainly offer those still suffering our thoughts and prayers.

Saturday, November 10th the Hermitage Museum Foundation threw its annual gala to support the Hermitage Museum and specifically the “Art From America” program.  Jeff Koons and Erik Bulatov were this year’s honorees.  Both spoke eloquently about their art and inspirations.  Two great artists from different cultures, with more in common as artists than not.  Truly inspiring.

Ingrid and “Reflection” at the Hermitage Benefit

After the dinner and speakers the auction began.  OK, I’ll admit it now, Ingrid and I were nervous.  Her piece was the first to be auctioned off.  We held our breaths as the bidding began.  This was an $18,000 piece and the bidding began at $2,000.  It bounced around, $4,000, $6,000, then stalled at $8,000.  OK, somebody’s going to get a great bargain, we thought.  Then a collector jumped in at $10,000 and the bidding stopped.  The auctioneer was about to slam the hammer down when… I’m not going to tell you.  You are going to have to see for yourself.  I posted the video of the auction on YouTube.  Forgive the poor quality, it was taken using my iPhone.

Hermitage Museum Gala Auction Video – November 10, 2012

The video only shows the auctioning of Ingrid’s piece.  The rest of the evening was terrific and I’ve heard report that they raised quite a bit of money from the sale of works by Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, Michal Rovner and Martin Mull.  It is also gratifying to know that a portion of the money raised will go to help relief efforts for hurricane victims – nice touch.

Ingrid and I would like to thank the many people who put on this elegant and important event: the generous board members of the Hermitage Museum Foundation, especially Paul and Chauncie Rodzianko and their daughter Marina, Mark Kelner.  Thank you staff and associates of the Hermitage Museum Foundation, especially Annie.  Thank you Phillips de Pury Auctioneers for the beautiful setting surrounded by great contemporary art.  And thank you Simon de Pury for your auction wizardry.  A very special thanks goes to Brad and Penny Place, our dear friends and patrons who helped make the evening possible for us.

Wow what a night, we’re still flying!
