Claudia Meyer / Udo Noger/ Meredith Pardue

Dear readers,

Today I went to the L. A. Art show at the convention center and discovered two new contemporary painters:
Claudia Meyer and Udo Noger.
I liked Claudia's work mixed media with light and Udo's feeling of light with just white paint.

Below are a couple of pictures of their works:


Claudia Meyer

Udo Noger

Both have a grand piece in different galleries.

There were a lot of Chinese art galleries, some Japanese and a few Korean represented with great contemporary artists in this art fair.

Claudia Meyer will show in Culver City, CA next month at the Fresh Paint art gallery with another talented painter Meredith Pardue

Djamel Tatah

Dear readers,

Djamel Tatah is a great contemporary painter who is showing at the beloved Foundation Maeght in St Paul de Vence (South of France). This place is beautiful, his paintings have amazing colors ( I am picky about colors) and are very peaceful, a treat for the ones who are lucky to see his show.

Sans titre, 1999. Huile et cire sur toile, 220 x 200 cm. Collection particulière.

Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin

Dear readers,

Back in Wausau (WI) for 12 days after three years, I enjoyed today going to the Woodson Art museum. It is a very neat museum specialized in birds art where I was lucky to show a painting there in 1998 during the Birds in Art international art show.

Since then, the museum collection has expended and went through major works. They have built a new extension to host a donation from BMO Harris Bank about the artist Owen J. Gromme. Their sculpture garden still looks gorgeous and magical even burried under the snow! We are currently experiencing a strong cold spell in Wisconsin.

Currently they have a couple of interesting current exhibitions:
  Huchthausen: A Glass Retrospective (my favorite)
  Transformation 8: Contemporary Works in Small Metals
  Owen J. Gromme: An Enduring Legacy

I spoke to a couple of people working there who were very nice and enthuisastic.
If you live in the area or are a tourist, swing by, it is free and beautiful. Please support this museum if you can because it deserves to be discovered.

By the way, Happy New Year!
