Stephen Talasnik

Stephen Talasnik's site specific sculpture, "Pioneer" at the Tippet Rise Arts Center in Fishtail, Montana is the subject of a new short film, "Pioneer: Stephen Talasnik" that had its premiere on the opening night of the Architecture and Design Film Festival in New York. The film traces the development of this sculpture from concept to completion.



Stephen Talasnik's newest permanent, site-specific sculpture is "Pioneer", a cedar structure rising 35 feet in the air, with a footprint of 45 x 35 feet at the base.  The "exterior infrastructure" supports 3 habitable rooms or "seeds".  It was engineered by Arup engineers and built by Gunnstock Timber Frame of Powell, Wyoming.   It is located at the new
Tippet Rise Art Center, in Fishtail, Montana.   Open through September 25, 2016.

Things to Do Right Now in Washington, D.C.
Lisa Fabis ON 01/21/16, UPDATED 05/20/16

Beyond politicos and power lunches, Washington, D.C. bustles with inventive fare, artsy
enclaves and monumental experiences for all ages. With endless options to choose from,
start here to plan the perfect outing in the nation’s capital.

May 14-June 25

Power of Place:

Kitty Klaidman’s  current exhibition at  Marsha Mateyka Gallery covers 30 years and seven series of site-related paintings.  The works range from naturalistic landscapes to wall-spanning abstractions inspired by a visit to Canada’s idyllic Salt Spring Island. Klaidman credits her imaginative environments and close observation of nature to a peripatetic life.  Dark forests evoke her Slovakian family’s escape from the Nazis, interiors her family’s hiding places until the war’s end.  Since that childhood, she has lived in Israel, France, Spain and, since 1953, mostly the U.S., showing her work internationally in museums and galleries. Traditional landscapes aim to freeze a postcard moment in time, but Klaidman’s paintings, tracked across three decades, provide an evolution of the artist’s palette and personal aesthetic, her shifts of experience and invested feeling.  Thurs.-Sat. 11am-5 pm. 2012 R St NW. –Jean Lawlor Cohen
