New River Fine Art Showing Alex Katz

New River Fine Art, a contemporary art gallery in Fort Lauderdale is proud to offer new prints by Alex Katz. The large format portrait “Vivien with Hat” shows Vivien Bittencourt, Alex Katz’s daughter–in-law in a white summer wide-brimmed hat. This signature reductive aesthetic is clearly Alex Katz. Pulling out only the essential visual components of his subject, Katz delivers a face in a seemingly raw power stroke. Flat, illustrative qualities are married with hard-edged accessories and minimal modeling techniques. At its core, a subtractive methodology by the artist allows him to edit out the visual noise and concentrate visually on the essential key elements of his art, in this case, his family.

What Top Film Schools Are Doing To Help Diversify Hollywood

For years, people of color have struggled to break into Hollywood. One reason? The film industry is built on relationships, and many of those relationships often begin in film school, where the right connections can open important doors.

Disney on Ice during a Pandemic

Last March before the world ended, I was going to take my then six year-old-daughter to see Disney on Ice. But then of course the world ended. Flash forward a year and a half and I learned Disney on Ice is back in town. I know it’s not a good idea during a pandemic to be around a lot of people. Especially when I just recovered from a nasty case of COVID myself. But it had been five years since I took my daughter to see Peppa Pig. At eight she’s now at the cusp of being too old to go to kid friendly activities. There’s only two or (if the gods smile on me) three years before she instead wants me to take her to whatever tween idol TikTok foists upon us.
