Gilles Cenazandotti: “Vision Leader” at Creating Equilibrium, A Solutions-Focused Innovation Forum Dedicated to Solving Environmental Challenges

July 18, 2017 - Contessa Gallery

Creating Equilibrium, a first-of-its-kind event focused on generating environmentally impactful innovations, is set to host its inaugural event in Lake Tahoe, CA this August. 

Lake Tahoe will also serve as the backdrop for the Village Green festival, a free, immersive experience for all that unites storied musical talent, eco-visionaries, culinary culture, and experiential art, including a floating, multimedia installation set on the crystal clear waters of the lake. Gilles Cenazandotti, the feature artist at this event, will be leading walking tours around the village grounds and discussing the ecological mission behind his work. The artist will also exhibit several large sculpture works created with tidal debris found in Mediterranean Sea and begin plans for a commissioned work with Contessa Gallery and Tahoe Public Art.

The Hamptons Art Scene Is Shrinking—and That’s a Good Thing

July 10, 2017 - Eileen Kinsella

When it comes to the art scene in the Hamptons, bigger may not be better.

While there has never been any doubt that major events like Art Hamptons and Art Southampton attract hordes of well-heeled visitors, questions continue to surface about how commercially successful these fairs actually are. The notion that these events draw casual gawkers rather than serious buyers has been reinforced with recent news that both fairs were being yanked from the summer calendar this year. But have no fear: in the month ahead, there is no shortage of lively art programs for Long Island’s East End—they’re just smaller in scale. Now in its seventh year, Max Fishko’s Market Art + Design is on track to open on July 6 at the Bridgehampton Museum.

Craig Alan: The Future Is Not Written

June 26, 2017 - Nashville Arts

Contessa Gallery's Craig Alan has a restless eye, pushing the boundaries of visual expression with no regard for stylistic constraints. Alan’s body of work co-opts numerous styles from pop-surrealism to magic realism to neo expressionist abstraction and representation. His most recent work, which he refers to as the Populus series, steps outside the tropes of those well-worn formal enterprises with strikingly original images created from hundreds of tiny figures on a white ground.
