Sept. 9, 2010, New York, NY– I’m a big fan of contemporary art and try to keep up with Iranian artists, who are increasingly in the spotlight at top galleries and auction houses around the world. So, I was thrilled to find out that Azadeh Ghotbi was having another show in New York (Kismet, opens 9/16 @ Kipton Art Access Space, 75 Wall St., 6:30pm). Then, as kismet would have it, I ran into her in her studio. I’m captivated by her paintings—large, abstract pieces that navigate one’s senses between quiet serenity and forceful outbursts, marking a creative tension between polar opposites. Azadeh spent her early childhood in Iran, lived in Paris and the US, and graduated from Brown University & INSEAD. Here are a few more things I learned about her work, which along with a video portrait is on display at www.azadehgallery.com.
Sept. 9, 2010, San Diego, CA – Bibi Kasrai’s Harvard Cookie Girl is fast becoming a household name. If you haven’t heard the story of how this Harvard MBA and “gourmet chef who has a sweet tooth” left her career as a nonprofit executive to pursue her passion for food—healthy food, that is; sweet, healthy cookies, to be precise; no, there’s more, teaching kids how to make and enjoy healthy food—this is your chance to catch up. Have dessert first. Read our Q&A with Bibi here.
