Looking for a creative gift to give this Pride Month? 🌈 

Hilary Harkness: Everything for You is the first comprehensive monograph on the artist’s work. A queer Midwesterner from a family with working class origins, Harkness has lived in coastal cities for the majority of her life. She is married to an African American woman who shares her interest in art and literature.

These life experiences are infused throughout her works, even as they defy pure autobiographical interpretation. The worlds that unfold on Harkness’s canvases teem with the inescapable human foibles that plague each of us, making it relatable and resonant with viewers across a broad and global spectrum.

This heavily illustrated publication provides an opportunity for further exploration of Harkness’s practice alongside essays by Lynne Tillman and Dr Ashley Jackson, as well as insights from the artist herself. Happy Pride! #pride #pridemonth #loveart
March Avery: A Life in Color is the first monograph on March Avery, the daughter of artists Milton Avery and Sally Michel Avery. 

This book documents over 80 years of her work featuring everyday domestic scenes, portraits of friends and family members, and landscapes visited and revisited over the course of a lifetime, with texts by Johanna Fateman, Lynne Tillman and John Yau.

Avery’s oil paintings, sketches and watercolors are known for their flat picture planes, interlocking shapes and simplicity of forms. The artist’s mastery of colour brings life, immediacy of place and emotional depth to her compositions, as March Avery: A Life in Color illustrates, beautifully.
