“Art Fare” by Andy Freeberg at Andrea Meislen Gallery in New York is so great!  When I first saw his works, I thought they were set up, which would have still made me love this exhibit, but after speaking with the artist at the opening night reception, I learned that he caught these amazing scenes as they happened.

Freeberg attended major art fares and was able to capture gallerists, art aficionados and workers in intimate moments setting up their shows, or in most cases – completely ignoring everything except their cell phones!  SO GOOD!!!!    Of course, it would be better if it weren’t this way, but it is and nobody wants to admit it.  But lucky there are people out there like Andy Freeberg who exposes it and shows the world how ridiculous it looks to be in an iPhone coma, especially when you are surrounded by gorgeous works of art.

In The Studio with Artist Jeanne Wilkinson

The Painted People by Jeanne Wilkinson

One of the greatest things about this blog is that I am extremely fortunate to attend really cool events and meet all kinds of interesting people.  My version of paying it forward is sharing these cool experiences with you in hopes that you discover or rediscover something that makes you smile.  With that being said, I was very lucky to visit the studio of American artist Jeanne Wilkinson and she gave me a peek into her world and the wonderful art she creates.

I don’t think there’s a genre that Jeanne Wilkinson has not mastered and her works range from abstract paintings to photography to music and visual art.  I was so impressed with her ever evolving body of work, I cannot stress highly enough the importance of going to her website to check out all the great stuff she does.  Her films have been shown at art events across the country and she’s participated in countless gallery shows.

The above picture of The Painted People is just one of many projects she has created and the concept is genius:  she has taken discarded Barbie and Ken dolls and GI Joe action figures and has given them a new and more exciting life.  The Painted People have traveled all over the world and their adventures have been caught on film and in still photos.  I can absolutely envision their stories being told in a movie or TV series franchise.  Are you listening studio moguls?!

Jeanne Wilkinson with the Painted People!

You’d think that having that kind of potential hit on her hands would make Jeanne rest on her laurels.  Not a chance!  After the jump, see even more cool stuff from Jeanne Wilkinson.
