Paris Thoughts | L’Orangerie by Paul Parker

One of the museums in Paris that I was really looking forward to visiting was the Musee de L’Orangerie. The museum is housed in the former Orangery of the Tuileries Gardens near the Louvre on the Seine. An Orangery was a greenhouse or conservatory often built on the grounds of fashionable residences.

History is Written by the Collector by Kelly Skeen, Pippin Contemporary

“The collector is an artist in his own way, by the way he puts things together. You can read a person’s soul from their collection.” – Ayers Tarantino, Art and Antiques Why collect?

Around the Galleries by Kate McGraw

It’s Time for Currents… “Currents” is the fifth annual Santa Fe International New Media Festival. It’s an evocative title—could be referencing currents, like, streams. Or currents, like, what’s happening now. Actually, it’s both. New Media are media that combine arts with science and technology – digital, video, “lights, camera, action.” Like that.
