  • Man convinced living room painting is $300M Michelangelo masterpiece
    By Associated Press - Thursday Jul 20, 2017

    TONAWANDA, N.Y. — Martin Kober is convinced the painting of a dying Jesus that hung above the mantel in his upstate New York childhood home is the work of Michelangelo. Getting experts to agree remains the $300 million hurdle. That’s the potential value of the 19-by-25-inch work that Kober’s family affectionately calls the “the Mike,”...

  • Portrait painting in action at Stanford
    By Sam Whiting - Wednesday May 24, 2017

    At 11:30 Monday morning, writer Tammy Fortin set up her manual Olivetti in the grand marble atrium at Cantor Arts Center and began tapping out a short story. [...] artist Hope Gangloff set up her acrylic paints and began painting a portrait of Fortin as she typed. The main entrance to the Stanford University museum, built in 1894, has been converted into Gangloff’s studio as the first in a five-year series called the Diekman Contemporary Commissions Program, underwritten by arts benefactors John and Sue Diekman. There is a lot to tell because Gangloff, 42, lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., and drove out in her Subaru with her boxer mutt Olly, and all her paints and brushes and buckets. “She’s a fun challenge,” says Gangloff, as Fortin clacks away in single space, working that carriage return, her salt-and-pepper hair blending nicely with the marble wall behind her. The typewriter sits on a pullout tray at a midcentury metal office desk. Scattered around are a metal lunch box in red tartan, a bottle of Wite-Out, a magnifying glass and any number of dictionaries and art history books open for quick reference, plus a Princess dial phone with the receiver off the hook and dangling to the floor so she won’t be distracted by a caller. There is a lot of detail to capture, and those who can’t wait around to see the finished product can go upstairs where the concurrent show “Hope Gangloff Curates Portraiture” is on the balcony. There is a whole wall of portraits, and visitors can turn around and lean over the railing to see the next one being worked on at the bottom of the stairs. “Hope is an incredibly talented painter who evokes the 19th and 20th century masters and updates the tradition, ” says Carty.

  • Pleasantly lost amid the streets of Seoul
    By Spud Hilton - Friday Jul 7, 2017

    Not in the shiny, breathtaking skyscrapers and of-the-moment restaurants of one of Asia’s biggest economic engines, nor in the museums and rebuilt ancient temples and city walls from the Joseon Dynasty, but in the historical middle. Simply, most of Seoul’s most interesting (but overlooked) culture is in the underground markets, the hanok villages and the hidden alleys that started in or survived through the 20th century — despite the devastating war halfway through — and are part of everyday life for locals, but largely overlooked by outsiders. For several reasons, start the day at Namdaemun Market (21, Namdaemunsijang 4-gil, Jung-gu; +82-2-753-2805;, a bustling complex of more than 10,000 stores and booths populated by about 50,000 workers and vendors. [...] if you start here in the morning you get to watch this commerce-driven city-within-a-city come to life — the only time it’ll be even remotely calm until late tonight. [...] just outside the market is Gamekol Son Wangmandu (60-2 Namchang-dong, Jung-gu), a takeout window with steamed dumplings. Next, look nearby on Namdaemunsijiang 4 street for what looks like a subway entrance and head down to the underground market, a tightly packed mall in which nearly every vendor is trying to fit twice as many products as possible — carpets, herbal remedies, snack foods, clothing, liquor, kitchenware — into valuable display space. If it’s getting close to lunchtime, wander over to Galchi Jorim Alley, a pair of alleyways in the market where all of the restaurants specialize in the same dish: galchi jorim, or braised scabbard fish stew. The Bukchon Hanok Village is one of the most popular tourist spots in town (mostly Korean tourists, however), so while it seems like a tourist trap, it offers a glimpse of the hanok villages — neighborhoods of single-story homes and businesses with narrow alleys — of which there are few left. Bokchon is mostly residential (be respectful), but there is a collection of restaurants, art galleries, cafes and boutiques, as well as a couple of homes that offer demonstrations on what life was like 600 years ago in Seoul. On weekends, expect to share the alleys with Koreans in hanboks traditional Korean clothing, mostly from the Joseon period. In recent years, however, the century-old homes and storefronts have been attracting an increasingly hip variety of coffee shops, brewpubs, restaurants, hostels, hanok-stays and boutiques (including one gift shop that advertises that it opened thanks to a Kickstarter campaign). Finish the day at Ale Dang (33-9, Supyo-ro 28-gil, Jongno-gu), a funky brewpub with a menu that’s long on variety of brews but short on snacks, and that manages to bring a hip take to the traditional hanok structure.
