Mckay’s New Pairing
East Hampton’s Halsey Mckay Gallery is showing works by Rachel Foullon and Ernesto Burgos through Oct. 6.
Cornelia Foss has a new self-published book, “Cornelia Foss: Ten Years of Paintings and Drawings, 2003-2013,” that has more illustrations and heft than many volumes coming out of traditional presses.
The art book industry has always been a bit do-it-yourself. Color monographs and exhibition catalogs are expensive, and publishers typically charge the venue to produce them. So why not just take it upon yourself when you have sumptuous illustrations, an introduction by Barbara Novak, and an enlightening interview with William Benton?
