We received word of a great auction this weekend (Saturday) at the Mark Moore Gallery that will raise grant funds for one Los Angeles-based student artist. Against the Grain, according to its creators, 5790projects, the auction will,”feature works on paper that showcase diversified studio practices through a shared medium. Unlike any other charity arts auction, Against the Grain pioneers an artist community-based project in direct support of the next generation of emerging artists.” We are proud to say that many past feature New American Paintings artists will be participating, including, Eddie Martinez, Taravat Talepasand, Allison Cortson, Libby Black, Ryan Schneider, Brian Cooper, Ana Fernandez, Aaron Zimmerman, Bob Snead, Scott Anderson, Jason Adkins, Karl  Connolly, and Annie Lapin.

Gallerist at Home: Catlin Moore by New American Paintings

Catlin Moore, the Director of the contemporary Mark Moore Gallery and co-Director of 5790projects, is stylish, youthful and a definite force to be reckoned with.  Though she cites her collection as being “in its infancy” (especially compared to her father gallery-owner and namesake Mark Moore), her art and artifice at home make me drool.  An established arts writer and LA gallerist, Catlin has created a respite at home, reflecting a space where contemporary art browses with library-esque bookshelves, curiosity cabinets, and a tangible life of its own.

I am so pleased to feature Catlin in the official launch of the monthly column Gallerist at Home for New American Paintings.  Following the same inspiration and interface of the interview I conducted with Heather Taylor in October of 2011, Gallerist at Home will showcase American art personas and explore the process of collecting art for both for public and private spaces. I see this largely as a forum for discussing the practice, process, and procedure of art collecting, and look forward to the conversations it sparks. – Read the interview with Catlin Moore by Ellen Caldwell, LA Contributor, after the jump!
