  • A Brief History of a Legendary New York Art Building - Jeffrey Podolsky (T Magazine - New York Times)

    It didn't look like much, but the blocklong building at 404 East 14th Street in New York's East Village was one of the most vibrant artistic hubs in the city during the 1960s. A former button factory, it offered enormous lofts (and $300 rent) that energized its residents to experiment on a larger scale -- and host giddy bacchanalias as well.

  • Sculpture on its last legs

    By Charles Waterstreet. The Sidney Morning Herald, January 15 2012. THE New York modern art world, as we know it, will officially end on January 22. The Sag Harbour village zoning board of appeals has ruled that a five-metre tall, deliciously naughty sculpture of a woman's legs be finally parted - from its owners. For now, the Larry Rivers piece is mounted appropriately on the front lawn of art lovers Ruth Vered and Janet Lehr.

  • Legs That Go On and On, but Maybe Not for Long

    Of the sassy pair of female legs in retro stockings stepping out into Sag Harbor's historic district, one can say this: The legs are 16 feet tall, are made of fiberglass and stand on the side of a home that used to be the Bethel Baptist Church. They were constructed by the artist Larry Rivers, who still manages to delight and offend from the grave. Some people love them as the irreverent embodiment of the rare Hamptons village with a sense of humor and values that transcend dollar signs. Some people hate them as the embodiment of too-cool Manhattanites and art snobs who should have more respect for Sag Harbor's fishing village past. And after more than two years of pondering weighty issues of art, taste and land-use law, the village has ordered that they be taken down by Sunday in a classic East End kerfuffle revolving around art, zoning law and the still-charged reputation of the artist buried a few miles away.

  • Vered's Art Market Recap - by Janet Lehr

    I'M THINKING 1950. What a difference a year makes - Just this morning I thought, 'where' was art in 1950?' We have been intensely involved in the sale of a Jackson Pollock, a very beautiful, lyric, powerful 'drip painting'. I read, "Picasso compared to Pollock seemed like a quiet conformist, a painter out of the past" Iconoclastic? Do we see art at this junction today? Food for future thought...
