Houston Press Article by Susie Tommaney reviews Ingrid Magidson’s Exhibition at Unix Gallery.
Once Upon a Timeless opens in Houston, TX, Friday, April 22 at the Unix Gallery
Ingrid has reached into the creative unknown to produce her most exciting work to date. It has always been her goal to paint the human spirit in her work, to capture that spark or essence that is the nobility in each of us. Using three related techniques in this unusual exhibition, Ingrid brushes the beauty within each of us. Though it is difficult to capture the true depth and dimensionality of her work in photographs, here for your viewing pleasure are a few samples of the masterpieces you will see at the exhibition.
Ingrid continues to create her most well-known work, consisting of transparent layers, antique objects and butterflies. Stunningly beautiful images that touch the divine in each of us.
Never content to stand still, Ingrid experiments with new materials in this recent series of dimensional work. The objects literally jump from the surface.
Abstraction has always been a critical part of Ingrid’s work, sometime layered deep within her figurative work, or gently applied to the transparent surfaces. Her show in Houston will be the first time these paintings will be shown as separate and unique work.

It’s winter in Colorado, skiing, snow and sitting by the fire. Wait, you’ve done that. How about seeing the extraordinary new work of Ingrid Dee Magidson in Vail, Colorado. Opening on December 28th and 29th, 2015, Ingrid’s new work will be featured with a one-woman exhibition at the beautiful Galerie Zuger in the Solaris Building in Vail. Once again, Ingrid has stretched the bounds of creativity with her new work, experimenting with materials and subjects. Just beautiful.
Belair Fine Art will be opening their 15th art gallery next year in Venice, Italy. Right, you guessed it, they will be showing Ingrid’s work there too. Amazing city, amazing gallery, and amazing art. Thank you Belair Fine Art!

Refreshingly, there are no advertisements. It is a magazine that asks the reader to reach higher, consciously and artistically. It is a real honor that Ingrid’s work has been selected for the magazine’s winter issue.

Sometimes you have to leave to come home…
Ingrid was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. She left as a young adult to pursue life in Europe, New York and later Aspen. But Texas never forgot her.. or her talent. In October of last year, well known Houston art lover and philanthropist, Carolyn Farb, commissioned Ingrid to do an altar for her home. Creating a commissioned work of art is certainly a challenge, but an altar is so personal and spiritual, it brought the experience to lofty heights.
Ingrid worked on the piece for over six months and the results are nothing less than stunning. The journey not only produced a spectacular work of art, but also a deep artistic connection between the two women. The altar was installed in mid-April and Carolyn and Ingrid met each other for first time in person, but also as long time kindred spirits.

On April 15th, Carolyn Farb generously opened her home to honor the new installation. Friends and art lovers from Aspen, Houston and New York City came to the event to share her enthusiasm. Enjoy the photos from the event.
Warmest thanks to Carolyn Farb for her love of art, generous spirit, and hospitality!
