“Success Story: Mark Moore Fine Art” — Read on pages.artsy.net/mark-moore-success-story

The feature is a very insightful look into the past, present, and future of Mark Moore Fine Art.

Since 1984, Mark Moore has been a leading champion of emerging and mid-career contemporary artists in Southern California. Until 2016, he was the founder and principal of Mark Moore Gallery – an acclaimed Los Angeles space that was family owned and operated for nearly thirty-two years. Recognizing the rapid changes of the gallery industry and the modern needs of his clients, Moore decided to pivot the focus of his business from the traditional gallery model to a private agency that would allow for increased project flexibility and individualized consulting.  Mark Moore Fine Art is a progression from Moore’s gallery history, with a similarly ambitious roster of represented artists and activity in the secondary market. With Moore’s broad experience, MMFA provides tailored collection management, consulting, project management, public artwork commissions, exhibition design, and curatorial services with the attentiveness of a small-scale firm.

“Living and Sustaining a Creative Life” with Julie Heffernan at The Strand, NY

The Strand Bookstore in New York (828 Broadway, New York, NY 10003) at 7pm on March 26th is hosting a panel of artists – including Mark Moore Gallery artist Julie Heffernan – in response to the book, “Living and Sustaining a Creative Life” edited by Sharon Louden and featuring essays by Heffernan, among others, about how these talents got started as artists and how they’ve continued to function over the years in the art world. It has gotten major traction all over the country and into Europe, with book events at such illustrious venues as the 92nd St. Y, the Miami Basel Art Fair among many others.

Andrew Schoultz

The Center (Tree), 2012 / acrylic, collage, and gold leaf on dyed and stretched American flag over panel / 30 x 52 inches (76.2 x 132.1 cm)

Stephanie Washburn in “Are Friends Electric?”

Mark Moore Gallery artist Stephanie Washburn will be participating in  “Are Friends Electric?” – a group exhibition produced by the Fellows of Contemporary Art’s Curators Lab.

“Are Friends Electric?” is a group art exhibition curated by the Manual History Machines, and will be dispersed between two locations as Act I and Act II. Act I is presented as a Curators Lab Exhibition at Fellows of Contemporary Art (FOCA) in Chinatown, Los Angeles from January 18 – March 21, 2014.  Opening just a few days later, Act II will be on view in the Peggy Phelps Gallery and East Gallery at Claremont Graduate University from January 21 – February 6th, 2014. Both exhibitions present works from the same group of artists, pushing our modes of perception and ability to relate to the artists’ works.

Participating artists include Sarah Awad, Daniela Campins, Clifford Eberly, Jay Erker, Helen Rebekah Garber, Rema Ghuloum, Rochele Gomez, Raymie Iadevaia, Bessie Kunath, Nancy Lupo, Danielle McCullough, Stephanie Washburn, and Tessie Whitmore.

The work selected for this exhibition hesitates towards a technology-driven frenetic future, addresses feelings of isolation and makes transparent the nature of shifting meanings through context/positioning. The exhibition title, “Are Friends Electric?” Is taken from Gary Numan’s iconic song, whose lyrics verge on fear of loneliness amid the appearance of friendly entities. In reflection of our truly complicated relationship with what it means to be “social” today, artists continue to forge, perhaps even more fastidiously now, personal identities in their practices despite the reality of shrinking “private” and [truly] “public” spaces.

FOCA’s exhibition space located at 970 N. Broadway, Suite 208 Los Angeles, CA 90012. Hours of operation: 10am-5pm/Tuesday through Friday. Opening reception is on Saturday, January 18th, 2014 from 7-9pm. A catalog release with text by David Pagel – accompanied by an Artist Talk- will be announced at a later date.

“Are Friends Electric, Act II” will be on view from January 21st – February 6th at the Peggy Phelps and East Gallery, Claremont Graduate University, located at 251 E. Tenth Street, Claremont, CA 91711. Hours of operation: 10am-5pm/ Monday through Friday.
