It’s that time of year when gifts are exchanged, loved ones are near, and we all reflect on the artful fortunes of 2015.
Happy Holidays from all of us at Fine Art Connoisseur! As the end of 2015 nears and our families gather to celebrate, it’s that time when our team steps aside for a two-week intermission. However, we also like to use this opportunity to give thanks and muse on the range of outstanding events, news, and artists covered.
Fine Art Today has — as one would expect — covered an expansive scope of topics this year. We’ve featured many of the top exhibitions from acclaimed museums around the United States in 2015, from a major exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts that stepped into the mind of Leonardo da Vinci to the Frick’s amazing display of Frederic Leighton’s masterpieces. We’ve also celebrated the achievements — and artworks — of some of the best fine art festivals and auctions, including (among many others) the esteemed Western Visions Annual Show & Sale; numerous auctions from Sotheby’s, Christies, Heritage Auctioneers, and more; the Cheyenne Frontier Days Western Art Show; the Coeur d’Alene Art Auction; Art Basel Miami Beach 2015; the Heart of the West Show; Maynard Dixon Country; and the Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival. It has also been our great pleasure to highlight amazing exhibition lineups from many of the country’s finest galleries. From New York to Florida, Virginia to California, we continue to do our best to showcase traditional, representational art from galleries that share that vision. Shining the spotlight on working artists through the ongoing artist profile has proved to be infinitely rewarding as well. The ability to learn more about the inspirations, processes, and goals of some of the most accomplished artists enriches my life as I hope it does yours.
Since taking over the editorial role for Fine Art Today this past July, there hasn’t been a day that I haven’t felt extremely blessed and lucky. It is a great privilege bringing you the latest stories from the fine art world each week, and I look forward to detailing the artful gifts that 2016 will reveal for us all. I would like to send a most sincere thanks to you, the reader, for your continued support and constructive feedback on our newsletter. Moreover, we send our deepest thanks and appreciation to the artists, galleries, and institutions who’ve graciously provided their time, effort, and materials to help make Fine Art Today possible. We look forward to bringing you more outstanding content in 2016.
Cheers and best wishes during the holiday season!
Warm regards,
Andrew M. Webster
