Cornered: Interview with Marilyn Kalish of The Vault Gallery (Part Two)

The “cornered” feature in the May/June 2012 issue of artscope features J. Fatima Martins’ interview with Marilyn Kalish, owner of The Vault Gallery in Great Barrington, Mass. Space restrictions didn’t allow us to run the full interview in the issue so we’re sharing the portion that didn’t make it into the magazine here.

Mother Nature Inspires a Mother in Nature

Mother Nature is all around us, but very few of us take the time to appreciate her. When we aren’t busy with work or family, we busy ourselves with computer screens, television screens, cell phone screens and any thing that can screen our sight of the great outdoors.

My MisAdventure at the MassArt Garden Lab

Here I was, sipping a shot of wheatgrass in Brant Gallery of the Garden Lab Project at the Mass College of Art and Design. It was a giddy group and motley as today’s students, even teachers, will be. But if it lacked the decorum of dinner jackets and white tie, at least, I consoled myself, with the belief it bristled with integrity.

“Small Gods and Heroes”, A Prolific Exhibit from a Prolific Artist

We live in an age where oftentimes the wrong people are idealized. We put professional athletes on a pedestal one day, only to vilify them the next when they underperform or dance at a club after losing the big game.

Karla Little’s Not-So-Little Fine Furnishings Show

There’s something missing from your living space. Perhaps your tired of the sectional sofa in your living room, you’ve always hated that chair that your significant other inherited from their great-grandmother or the feng shui just isn’t doing it for you.

Artists use the tools of business to meet the market challenges of the economic slump

Artists Donna Dodson and Andy Moerlein are building a market for their work despite the slow economy. They are proving that they can succeed in the creative market by applying the tried and true methods of commercial enterprise: build name recognition, seek clients outside the familiar gallery setting, keep the attention of their established collector base, look for overseas opportunities, and encourage brand loyalty.
