His words have graced the pages of Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Paris Review and Rolling Stone. On his long list of accomplishments: an Emmy for his documentary The Affluent Immigrants (sometimes less politely known as Eurotrash) for PBS. One of his greatest feats could be his book The Last Party: Studio 54, Disco, and The Culture of the Night. A noteworthy work not only because his writing i...

Manolo Valdes is on a treasure hunt. He is foraging. Foraging for the grit and grumble of life that he can transform into beauty. His mariposas and meninas, visages, forms within wood, metal and glass greenery: totems all to the magical universe we inhabit within our minds and the city and landscapes we choose as home. Born in Valencia, Spain, New York is his home now. He sits poised in his c...

J. Steven Manolis’ Redworld Series more than holds its own in the history of monochromatic modernist painting—so-called ‘all-over color field’ painting. Picasso’s “Blue Period” and “Rose Period” paintings also are monochromatic, as Bruce Helander points out in his essay on the Redworld Series, but their mood-creating blue and rose are the backdrop for their figures. They are representational...

Baldwin Gallery, with a measuring tape, is 7,000 square feet of cold, hard, contemporary art space. The too-cool exterior both belies and frames the beauty of the art and the engagement of the dialogue between work and viewer housed within and brilliantly hosted by owner Richard Edwards and his hard-working staff. Opened in 1994 by the late Harley Baldwin, a quintessential Aspen original and...

He paints every day (every night that is) 10pm-4am and sometimes until daybreak when the muse calls and he loses time completely.

He has won awards- the Prix de la Ville de Monaco and the opportunity to represent the U.S. in the Bienal de Arte, Medellin, Columbia, S.A.  to name a few. You can find his work in prestigio...

A patron of the arts of note introduces me to Marc Dennis. I get the immediate feeling Marc is

up to the challenge of an interview. Being in the circle of his energy, his exuberance is like being

shot out of a LIFE cannon. I am laughing in seconds and wondering if this Johnny Depp

look-a-like can paint. He can. I would go so far as to call him a savant. Not only technical

prowess at his bequest,...

The sky was luminous, hazy, and I was standing outside my hotel in Vermillion, South Dakota, looking out onto a landscape so flat that it might have been unrolled for inspection, when J. Steven Manolis joined me. He was born in Vermillion, and we were off to the opening of the ambitious survey of his paintings at the University of South Dakota, which is located there, and which he had attende...
