It could be claimed that Hope Atherton’s work opens a window into the soul. She showed at Carolyn’s NYC gallery in 2001
Christian Garnett is a visual artist. Included on his bio of a solo shows is a show at Carolyn’s NYC Gallery – Dee Glasoe n 2002. Christian’s well-chosen contrasting colors and a carefully controlled interplay of different painting methods that turn these paintings into entertaining patchwork puzzles. It’s nearly impossible to figure out how they have been made: which areas of solid color or blurred.
Diaz is well-known for his conceptual, recurrent use of everyday materials, his humor infused politics, and his ongoing involvement with art as a form of entertainment, activism, public intervention, and free enterprise. He began making and selling his cardboard signs, “Mexican Wallpaper”, on the streets of Manhattan in the late 90s. More recently, he has translated them into a compelling series of colorful neon signs. Some of Diaz’ recent projects include a commission to create large-scale outdoor sculptures for the Public Art Fund (2005), New York’s premier presenter of public art, a series called MexiCans, now part of the permanent public art collection of the City of San Antonio, on display at the San Antonio International Airport, and a public art commission for the Havana Biennial (2003).One of his amazing neon signs “Another Bright Idea” is included in the Fierce Generosity exhibit.

Charlotta’s Swedish style and attention to detail in her collected work made her a standout favorite of both Glasoe sisters. We are so fortunate that Ms. Westergren has donated a painting to the July 21st – August 21st exhibition at Porch Gallery – Ojai, honoring Carolyn’s life and contribution to the art world.
