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.

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

Ingrid Magidson Exhibition – Vail Opening March 27 and 28

Galerie Zuger in Vail, Colorado will be hosting the work of Ingrid Dee Magidson with two opening receptions on Friday, March 27th and Saturday, March 28th.  The artist will be in attendance from 3 to 7 pm on both evenings.

Ingrid will be showing her most experimental work to date.  That is saying a lot from an artist who continues to challenge herself with both materials and their use.  Consider the work below titled, “My Canvas.”  In this relatively small work Ingrid has created a visual reflection of sculptural objects beyond the bounds of the frame.  Inside the work (not easily seen here) are elements of the girl’s life in a kind of visual diary.  The overall effect is hauntingly beautiful.

Ingrid to show at Art Miami Part of Art Basel/Miami Week

Cherished Memories of Cornell's Lost Muse

Cherished Memories of Cornell’s Lost Muse by Ingrid Dee Magidson

The featured work this year will be Ingrid’s masterpiece, Cherished Memories of Cornell’s Lost Muse.  As the title suggests, the work is an homage to Joseph Cornell.  Ingrid reached deep into her psyche to create a work of not only sublime beauty, but intense emotion.  The central figure is the young Queen Isabella of Austria surrounded by her dreamlike memories.  The antique objects seem to hover, frozen in time, as the princess looks out through her dream at the viewer, questioning, wondering whether time exists at all, and who after all, is the dreamer.

Art Miami opens on Tuesday, December 2nd and continues through Sunday, December 7th.

An Artwork’s Journey Home – From Aspen to Houston to Aspen

The Artist Dreams is an unusual piece in many ways.  First it is by artist, Ingrid Dee Magidson, which by definition makes it unique.  But even within that broad category of the different, The Artist Dreams pushes new boundaries.

The Artist Dreams by Ingrid Dee Magidson

The Artist Dreams, 2013

About two years ago, Ingrid’s son found the remains of a deer near their home.  A mountain lion had killed the poor creature, and other animals had eaten what it had left behind.  When Ingrid’s son found it, only part of the spine remained.  Knowing how his mother likes certain objects, he brought it home.  Ingrid cleaned and preserved the bones and put it aside for just the right piece.

A year later, the right piece was ready for the spine – The Artist Dreams.  It is a surrealist work representing the illusory nature of time, how living things are at once so fragile and strong; living only a few years, but leaving behind bones that could last centuries, millennia or even eons.  The work is also unique in that it incorporates mirrors on both sides of the spine.  The viewer is able to see the front and sides of the spine simultaneously.  It was a technically difficult piece that came out spectacularly.

The Artist Dreams was debuted at the Aspen Art Fair in August 2013.  The Unix Gallery out of New York City exhibited this and other of Ingrid’s work.  There were several interested collectors, but the piece did not sell until it was exhibited in Houston later that month.  Well known art collector and philanthropist, Dr. Carolyn Farb saw the work and immediately fell in love with it.  She purchased it and hung it prominently in her Houston home.  She compares it to work by one of her other favorite artists: Frida Kahlo.

And we come full circle to the 2014 Aspen Art Fair, which opens July 31st at the Ice Gardens in Aspen.  Unix Gallery will once again be showing Ingrid’s newest work.  Work that is unique, challenging and always beautiful.
