I was recently introduced to the work of Margaret Kilgallen, the late San Francisco artist who painted strong, crisp images directly on walls.
Many of her paintings were in red and white (with a black line), and I can see them these cool surf and skate images
paired with antebellum-style redwork or red-and-white quilts, like the ones from Infinite Variety, a stunning exhibition of 651 of Joanna S. Rose's quilt collection at the Park Avenue Armory. 651!!! (One more than the publicity material states.)
**Kilgallen is featured in the April issue of Juxtapoz magazine. You'll need Google Chrome to see it, as my (obviously mainstream) Internet Explorer was informed that it was not cool enough to do the job.
**Rose's quilt exhibition, which she put together with the assistance of American Folk Art Museum, is open to the public March 25-30 at the Park Avenue Armory. Admission is free, as the exhibition is Rose's gift to the city of New York.
If you go to Rose's exhibition, do let me know. I had hoped to be in the city this week but didn't make it :-(((
