USA, Canada, Asia: Art Dealer Renowned For Print Editions

Patrick Painter is an American art dealer who in 1991 began Patrick Painter Editions in Vancouver, Canada and Hong Kong. He is also the owner of Patrick Painter Inc., which he opened in 1997, that includes two art galleries in Santa Monica, California.

Last month, Patrick Painter launched his Facebook fan page as a Public Personality–find it here.

Early in his career, Patrick Painter was mentored by famed art dealer Leo Castelli and curator Walter Hopps.  According to Wikipedia,…” Patrick Painter Editions was established in a depressed market, [yet] he managed to build his business upon the success he had turning editions. Fine art prints, or multiple editions, were looked down upon at the time by many critics and collectors; Painter created a unique approach to the market. In 1996, 20 galleries worldwide had shows of exclusively Patrick Painter Editions.

Open Sessions; a New Platform for Artists 

Applications are due November 1
The Drawing Center has announced their new program Open Sessions, a new program created by Lisa Sigal and Nova Benway, Open Sessions Curators. Open Sessions is a platform for selected artists to find new approaches for contextualizing and exhibiting their work, through conversation, public programs, and gallery installations.

The Drawing Center hopes to work with musicians, dancers, poets, theorists, scientists – anyone who is interested in expanding the boundaries of drawing. Open Sessions will foster a dynamic, ever-evolving conversation with new drawing practices and practitioners, viewing drawing as an activity rather than a product. .For a further sense of their interests, please look at the Drawing Center exhibitions, public programs, and blog at www.drawingcenter.org.

The content for all Open Sessions programs will come directly from participants, so applicants should be interested in an ongoing dialogue with their peers, though it is not necessary that they participate in every program. Installations and/or programs will be held approximately every other month throughout the year, schedule TBD. OPen Sessions will be considering applications from artists who will be in New York for only a portion of the two years. Artists from outside the city who will be visiting New York periodically are welcome to apply, with the understanding that more time in New York will mean more opportunities for participation. There are no fees associated with Open Sessions.  Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by January 15. Open Sessions will begin in early February, 2014.

SUMMARY
• Two year program
• Meetings with the Curators throughout the year
