Irvine Contemporary specializes in contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artists with growing national and international reputations. We participate in major nation and international art fairs and have launched the careers of young artists now in major private and institutional collections.
Our own, Dr. Paul Greenhalgh, director of The Corcoran Gallery of Art, got a great sound bite in this month’s The Art Newspaper when asked if he was related to the infamous Greenhalgh family of forgers. The Greenhalgh’s, who have deceived many prominent dealers and museums, have most recently made headlines with a Gauguin forgery in the collection of The Art Institute of Chicago.
(Our) Greenhalgh says he has no relation to the forger family, but that “…there is actually a Paul Greenhalgh who was a star of one of Britain’s soap operas, ‘Coronation Street’ (set in the North of course). Sadly I am not him either, though I am sure it helped my cause at home over the years that a lot of people thought a TV star was writing to them.” (The Art Newspaper, Jan ’08, pg.2)
One of my favorite, and under-exposed, sculptures in DC will now be more accessible and other good news is that the weird left leg is going to be repositioned… I always thought it looked a little off
While we in DC are aware of our progress and success, now the rest of the art world knows thanks to this month’s Capital Roundup.
Thank you Sidney Lawrence
I get alot of emails regarding which young benefactor group to join in DC. There are several to choose from and if you are familiar with some of my past posts it’s obvious which one I believe in enough to be affiliated – and that is the 1869 Society at The Corcoran Gallery of Art.
For several reasons: The programming at the Corcoran Gallery is the most progressive; Yes, I’m sure moms in Virginia are more pumped about the Ansel Adams show than me, but an evening with Annie Leibovitz or Jeremy Blake is much more enticing than another Turner Retrospective.
The other members are commmitted and vibrant supporters of the regional art community. You can always count on meeting someone enriching and enjoying some event or exhibition that has its finger on the pulse of what’s important in today’s art world – not what was fashionable 400 years ago.
1869′s first event is the scavenger hunt during the cultural cocktails evening:
Thursday, October 18 at 6:30 p.m.
1869 Society FREE, Members $10, Public $24
What was the age of the photographer in the oldest of the prints in Ansel Adams? Which Annie Leibovitz photograph is being exhibited to the public for the first time here at the Corcoran? Join us for Find the Photograph, a Corcoran scavenger hunt on October 18, for a chance to win complimentary tickets to the 1869 Society’s Fall Fête: Natural Glamour in Black and White. Light Hors d’oeuvres and open bar.
Hope to see you there!

Sale of the Magna Carta from Ross Perot’s private collection (which has been housed at the at the National Archives in DC forever) wonder what happened to prompt this…
Smart move – just spoke with one of the professors who was getting ready for first day of classes today – and the Corcoran is in the planning stages of offering an MFA degree. Great news for all of us in the DC art community and another example of how the Corcoran is ready to change with the times, to progress.
Art schools have to offer an MFA program to attract high level professors and serious students; I think area students were torn between, do I get a BFA from the Corcoran and then move away for my MFA, or, do I stay and go to AU for my MFA (and then get to have my senior thesis show in the Katzen Center)
and they were choosing the AU route.
I’m curious to see how this new competition is going to affect the local emerging arts, but I can assure it will be positive.
