Artist of the moment… Women Pop Artists…. Marjorie Strider…



this artist was a major force of the 1960s known for her wood carved bikini ladies at the pace gallery  alongside Tom Wesselman, Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein. She made a cast of the artist Caes Oldenburg wife’s breast  and the piece was bought by the artist Sol LeWitt.

When the artist was coming up, it was the time of the Abstract Expressionists,  the artist chose follow the colorists like Mark Rothko, Kenneth Noland, and Ellsworth Kelly.

The artist has had numerous one person shoes and besides the female wood carvings, the artist was well known for her buildouts of fruit, done in a similar manner.

I love the creativity of this artist no matter what the medium.

The artist currently shows at the Mark Borghi Fine Art Galleries…

Artist of the moment… Jim Dine…


The artist Jim Dine was born in Cincinnati in 1935. He also attended college in Boston but ended up getting his MFA from University of Ohio Athens. He exhibited at the Judson gallery in 1958-59. His first solo show was 1960. The artist uses personal items in his work such as his robes and even glued and attached items to his canvases like rope, shoes, and neckties. The artist also has published several books on his written poetry.


I enjoy this artist for being so prolific, especially in making woodcuts and mon0liths.
