It’s official. Ingrid is now showing with Forre Floria Gallery in Aspen. Gallery owner, Ania Forre was at Ingrid’s studio today to look at Ingrid’s newest work. Ingrid and Ania discussed many things, not least of which, was getting Ingrid’s work into the gallery as soon as possible.
Aspen has a lot of personal importance to Ingrid and her work. Her first one-person exhibition was in Aspen in 2007. That extraordinary show sold out within hours of arriving in the gallery – a full 3 days before the official opening of the exhibition. Aspen was the home to her and her husband’s gallery for 18 years as well. There are a lot of loyal collectors who will welcome the addition of Ingrid’s work in the expansive Forre Floria Gallery.
Earlier this year, well-known and respected gallery owner, David Floria joined forces with the Forre Gallery (the name changed from Forre Gallery to Forre Floria Gallery). Ingrid had a one person exhibition with David in 2010, which was also an unqualified success. David has been a long time friend of Ingrid and Jay, and we are happy he has added his wealth of talent and knowledge to this outstanding gallery. Thank you David and Ania. Ingrid is grateful to be showing in your beautiful gallery.
Ingrid is working like crazy toward her Vail exhibition opening July 5th. Today we worked on short videos of each piece (coming soon). She has finished eight pieces and continues to work hard on more. Ingrid took a short break from the studio so we could film her talking about her recent creations. You have to work quickly to catch Ingrid between her studio and her family. Busy, but what could be better than doing what you love.
The exhibition titled “The Illusion of Time” features some of her most experimental pieces to date. Short videos will be on the web site and blog in the next few days. In the meantime, you can look at still images on Ingrid’s website at: www.IngridMagidson.com.

Ingrid has finished and sent off the final 5 pieces for her exhibition in Denver. “Windows into the Past” opens Thursday & Friday at the Masters Gallery from 6-9pm both nights. Ingrid is very proud of her latest work. The exhibition consists of 11 works, all but one completed in 2011. “It has been thrilling. I dug deep into myself for this group, and I’m very pleased with the results. I can’t wait to see all the work hung in the gallery.” Ingrid said yesterday as the works left her studio. “The works are very personal to me.” She said. “Sometimes people ask, ‘Then how can you let them go?’ Once the emotions are expressed they are free to go. When they leave, they create a space for me to create more. And that is what I live for in my art.”
