The Santa Barbara Museum of Art has acquired Okay Mountain‘s 2011 video work, “Instructional Video,” but also, both the Orange County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego have acquired the last two remaining edition copies of Okay Mountain’s 2010 video “Water Water Everywhere So Let’s All Have a Drink.”  In addition, MCASD has also taken Allison Schulnik‘s 2009 animation “Forest” and her large oil painting titled “Captain,” that was featured in her last solo exhibition at Mark Moore Gallery in 2012.

Allison Schulnik again has had work acquired by a museum this year with “Mound,” her most recent animation that premiered at her 2011 solo show at ZieherSmith in New York as well as being featured in her current exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum.  The final edition copy of “Mound” has just been acquired by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Also in this short period of time, David Hilliard‘s “5 Cords” has been acquired by the Portland Art Museum, and Tim Bavington‘s “Cry You A Song” has gone to the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.

All of this signals an exciting start to 2013 so far with many other museum acquisitions currently pending. Institutions such as the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the McNay Art Museum, the Blanton Museum of Art, the Honolulu Museum of Art, and the Orange County Museum of Art are pending approval on works by Mark Moore Gallery artists Okay Mountain, Penelope Umbrico, Tim Bavington, and Cindy Wright.

SILENCE OF THE NIGHT – Cindy Wright at Galerie Ron Mandos, Amsterdam

The hyper-realistic paintings by Mark Moore Gallery’s Flemish artist, Cindy Wright, will be presented as part a double exhibition this autumn at Galerie Ron Mandos along side stunning video works by the Israeli video-artist and photographer Dana Levy.


Alhambra, 2012, Cindy Wright, Oil on Linen, 100 x 150 cm. / The Wake, 2011, Dana Levy, HD video, 05.03 min.

SILENCE OF THE NIGHT:  The work of Cindy Wright plays with the tradition of still life painting and themes of ‘Vanitas’. Wright creates her own subject matter, which she photographs with a digital camera. These  images are what she uses in the painting process. The paintings illustrate a reality painted from a photographic reality. Her choice of subject matter (fish in a bowl, withered flowers, general waste) assign a contemporary air to traditional still life painting.

THE FOUNTAIN/ THE WAKE:  Dana Levy explores in her work the relationship between the natural and the unnatural. For her video The Wake she filmed in the Carnegie Natural History Museum in Pittsburg, USA. Between the drawers of stuffed butterflies, accurately preserved in authentic wooden cabinets, the viewer sees one-hundred living butterflies. Their interaction creates a special tension in this video. Also on show will be her video The Fountain.

The exhibition will be introduced by art historian Stef van Bellingen (at 17:30 on the opening). Van Bellingen teaches contemporary art at various art institutions in Belgium and the Netherlands. As a curator, he is active in the Netherlands and abroad, where he works with both upcoming talent and established artists.

Weisman Art Foundation’s permanent collection at the Contemporary Art Center of New Orleans.

Dear Miami: MMG Loves You

We came, we saw, we conquered….our booth, at least.

Day one of PULSE Contemporary Art Fair: Miami leaves us void of complaints and thrilled with the works we brought along. PULSE’s new location at the Ice Palace is absolutely perfect and pristine; not to mention the fabulous turnout of established and emerging galleries alike.

Check out some of the photos from our day (excuse the quality, had to snap ’em quick with the iPhone amongst installation) – and if you’re in the area, please visit us in Booth B-202, December 3 – 6th!

Cindy Wright’s Work Assumes Post in Museum

Cindy Wright’s “Untitled (Self Portrait)” found a rather nice home in the permanent collection of The Contemporary Museum (HI). Looks like it’s being well-guarded, too.

Cindy Wright Work Acquired by The Contemporary Museum

Mark Moore Gallery is thrilled to announce The Contemporary Museum’s (HA) acquisition of Cindy Wright’s “Untitled” (2008).

The museum’s head curator, Jay Jensen, stated, “The painting has great staying power, a work one could go back to again and again and find something more in it.”

Congratulations to both the artist and the museum for such a fabulous addition to TCM’s permanent collection.
