Jen Recommends…hey, this is a family show.

Get out of the heat and get into art this summer! While summer is usually a slower time in the art industry, I’m excited to point out to Bare Square readers some exciting summer shows, starting with this one:

Yesterday, auction house Phillips de Pury opened shows in both New York and London featuring the work of Phillips de Pury staff who also work as professional artists.

To pay their bills on a consistent basis, emerging artists often have to hold steady jobs. The lucky ones are able to secure jobs in the art industry. Landing a job at a prestigious art business like Phillips de Pury is even better. Meanwhile most nights and weekends these artists are slaving over their work. Then in their “spare time” they still have to find ways of showing and selling their work. Bravo!

In support of the efforts of its artist-staff, Phillips de Pury’s New York staff show will take place in the Meatpacking District, exhibiting 49 artists who are also members of their New York staff.

Cary Leibowitz, Phillips de Pury’s Director of Contemporary Editions, is an outrageous artist. His work is on display at the staff show. Cary has had a number of major New York solo shows in his career, and his work is included in some major collections. See some of his contemplative and occasionally shocking works here. Cary participated in the NYC:State of the Art conference that James and I spearheaded last year. (Thanks, Cary!)

I plan on attending–you should, too!

Phillips de Pury Staff Show
July 11-23
450 West 15 Street New York

(semi-private opening party this Thursday 7/14 6-9, so if you want to join, make sure to RSVP to newyorkstaffshow [at] phillipsdepury.com)

We love Phillips de Pury for their support of their employees and what seems to be a really great corporate culture! They’re really supporting the Phillips de Pury family–awesome!

Long live Liz

"Liz #5" by Andy Warhol (1963)

The passing of Elizabeth Taylor this week made the world a slightly less beautiful place. Liz happens to have been a cultural phenomena of her time, made more apparent by Pop Art progenitor Andy Warhol’s treatment of her in art.

Warhol’s Elizabeth Taylor Pop Art piece is arguably as well known as his work depicting Marilyn Monroe. As if to echo Warhol’s statement about popular culture, it seems only fitting that an anonymous wealthy collector would put that artwork up for sale so close to the passing of the work’s subject, even if coincidental.

The actual sale by Philips de Pury won’t take place until May, according to their press release. The L.A. Times reports that the owner turned the piece over to Phillips two weeks ago, and the press release’s transmission on the day of Taylor’s funeral was “not connected.”

"Audrey Hepburn" by Gregory Kirschenbaum

Estimates for the artwork’s sale price range between $20 million and $30 million.

The Bare Square Store has beauty icons starting at $20. Audrey Hepburn, available exclusively at The Bare Square Store, captures a classic beauty in Greg Kirschenbaum’s unique style. With it’s oxidized metallic colors, Kirschenbaum’s work creates a new work with his one-of-a-kind technique. Check out Kirschenbaum’s Audrey Hepburn at The Bare Square Store.

Long live eternal beauty.
