Weekend Heller: Hot Show at Bard
The current exhibition Barbara Nessim: An Artful Life, curated by Douglas Dodds, Senior Curator, Word and Image Department, Victoria and Albert Museum, London is a essential piece of illustration history and practice. (The exhibition is at BGC Gallery from Sept. 19, 2014–Jan. 11, 2015.) I urge you to see it, and learn more about Nessim.
A constant innovator for more than four decades, Barbara Nessim was one of the first professional illustrators to master the computer as an artistic tool. This exhibition examines her sketchbooks, hand-drawn and computer-generated illustrations, paintings, collages, textiles, and fashion.
Bard Graduate Center / BGC Gallery: 18 West 86th Street (between Columbus and Central Park West) New York, NY 10024.
