Paramparik Karigar was formed in 1996 by Roshan Kalapesi. The idea was mooted by Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay when she was approached by a group of master craftsmen who wanted to form an organisation of their own.
Paramparik Karigar craftsmen work in materials as diverse as clay, wood, metal and cloth using skills and techniques passed down through generations. Paramparik's aim is to sculpt a significant place for Indian craft.
Members are keenly aware of the need to keep their craft alive, constantly experimenting with new concepts and developing innovative designs that appeal to the modern, urban consumer while still retaining the essence of the original tradition. In this new era of technology, industrialization and liberalisation, we tend to overlook our rich heritage of traditional arts and crafts, which are our nation's pride and our valued asset.
Paramparik Karigar was formed to preserve and promote the traditional art and craft of our country, as well as to strive to create an environment conducive for the craftsmen to create their exquisite pieces of art.
This institution encourages the craftsmen to constantly innovate new techniques, designs and styles. We provide resources for them to do detailed research in their respective field of craft, so they can use their expertise to write books on the subject. This will help future generations to absorb the paramparik skills and further excel in their creativity. Workshops are conducted for the craftsmen's children, where their talents are constantly cultivated and nurtured. Paramparik Karigar has also been attempting to incorporate craft as part of the education process for children in schools. Paramparik Karigar gives an opportunity to master craftsmen to bring their unique art and craft to the forefront.
We organize exhibitions, seminars and fairs, where craftsmen from every corner of the country can express and display their skills, to people who appreciate and acknowledge their creative efforts and inherent talents. Paramparik Karigar has had exhibitions in Bombay, Kolkata, Jamshedpur and workshops in Bangalore, Orissa, Chennai, Munnar and Kutch.

The Polish Art Center was originally founded in 1958, by Polish immigrant Joseph Kalenkiewicz. Located in downtown Hamtramck, the small Polish import shop was later sold in 1973 to Raymond and Joan Bittner, who had long since dreamed of running a family-owned and operated business celebrating Poland and all her rich cultural traditions. That dream actually began in 1967, when Raymond first fell in love with Poland during an educational pilgrimage. Later, he met Joan, a Canadian of Scottish descent, who immediately became enamored with Raymond's Polish heritage. The two residents of Farmington Hills, married, moved to Hamtramck and eventually welcomed three children who would go on to help support the family business.
Since then, the Bittners have developed The Polish Art Center into one of the country's premier emporiums of Polish cultural and traditional goods. The Center is also an important member of the Hamtramck Polish community. Aside from preserving Polish heritage through The Center's wide assortment of items, Raymond and Joan remain active in their civic duties, regularly displaying their Polish cultural artifacts at festivals, schools and libraries. In 2004, the couple expanded their operation into an adjacent building and converted it into an educational center featuring lectures, book signings, folk-art demonstrations, and pisanki-making classes.

PEWABIC IS MANY THINGS. TO MANY PEOPLE.
Pewabic is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit dedicated to enriching the human spirit through clay.
Our founder, Mary Chase Perry Stratton, was an innovator. In the early twentieth century, her experiments with glazes changed the face of contemporary ceramics. That spirit – her living legacy – is what drives Pewabic today.
Pewabic was founded in 1903 – and while many things have changed, our culture remains the same. We foster a progressive environment by celebrating new artists, exhibiting innovative work and offering opportunities to explore, experiment and invent.
We continue to redefine our role in the community through outreach and education, looking for new ways to make ceramics relevant and accessible to people of all ages and skill levels. We believe that everyone has creativity waiting to come out.
Like our founder, we are creating our next makers, artists and appreciators. And like our founder, we are supporting and recognizing the contributions of everyone who takes part.

Torel Avantgarde is a brand-new, five-star boutique hotel in Porto - we just opened in early September 2017. The concept of Avantgarde for our hotel is based on the building, which originates from the Estado-Novo period, i.e. the 1940s. Like avant-garde artists, we wanted to create something completely new. Our vision was to establish a place where art is not only an add-on, but takes centre stage in every way.
The result is Torel Avantgarde, where you can fully immerse yourself into art, absorbing it in all its expressions. It is a space to live art, to touch art, and to feel the heart and passion of the artist.
Torel Avantgarde is located in the heart of Porto, in the area of Restauraçao – just beside the Instituto de Vinho Verde and close to important parts of the city: 200m from the Palacio de Cristal, 500m from the Clerigos Tower, 750m to the Rua das Flores, 800m to the Avenida Aliados.

KOMUNITAS SALIHARA - The vision is to maintain freedom of thought and expression, respect differences and diversity.
ABOUT KOMUNITAS SALIHARA
Komunitas Salihara is an arts center active since August 8, 2008 and the first private multidisciplinary arts center in Indonesia.
Located on a 3,800 m2 plot of land on Jalan Salihara 16, Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, the Komunitas Salihara complex consists of three main buildings: Teater Salihara, Galeri Salihara, and office space. The black-box Teater Salihara is the only theater of its kind in Indonesia at this time. Currently, the Komunitas Salihara complex is expanding with additional facilities to include a rehearsal studio, guesthouse, and amphitheater.
Komunitas Salihara was formed by a number of writers, artists, journalists, and art lovers. Since it was established, Komunitas Salihara has presented a wide range of programs in arts and ideas; some of which are from abroad and world class quality.
Once named “The Best Art Space” (2010) by the magazine Time Out Jakarta and as one of the “10 Most Unique Places in Jakarta” (2010) by Metro TV, the architecture of Komunitas Salihara has also been described as, “Architecture which applies environmentally friendly aspects” by Green Design Award 2009.
Today Komunitas Salihara is visited by many people who wish to enjoy the high quality programs on arts and ideas, both classic and contemporary. Komunitas Salihara has also become a meeting place for groups with varied interests—such as writers, filmmakers, choreographers, young architects, those interested in philosophy, translators, book lovers, and others.
Komunitas Salihara can be called an alternative cultural center: it is not owned by the central government, regional government, or a foreign embassy. The vision of Komunitas Salihara is to maintain freedom of thought and expression, respect differences and diversity, and to foster and spread artistic and intellectual resources.

The Kimbell Art Museum, designed by the American architect Louis I. Kahn (1901–1974), is widely regarded as one of the outstanding architectural achievements of the modern era. Completed in 1953, the building was revolutionary in terms of American museum architecture, and it gained him instant national recognition. Situated amidst collegiate Gothic structures, the museum—constructed out of brick, concrete, steel, and glass—presents a windowless facade to the street and features open interiors with flexibly partitioned galleries. A honeycomb-like tetrahedral concrete ceiling contains air ducts and light fixtures in an ingenious arrangement. Impassively modern as the building is, in its scale, materials, and solemnity it subtly references its historical neighbors.
A new building, designed by the renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano, opened November 27, 2013. Its low-slung, colonnaded pavilion with overhanging eaves graciously acknowledges Louis I. Kahn’s museum landmark by way of its kindred height, emphasis on natural light, and use of concrete as a primary material.
In 1980, Piano was approached by the Schlumberger oil-equipment heiress Dominique de Menil to design a museum in Houston to house her impressive collection of art. She and her husband John had previously commissioned Louis I. Kahn, but after Mr. de Menil died in 1973, Dominique de Menil abandoned the project. When she was ready to begin again, Kahn was no longer alive: she turned to Piano for the assignment. The result is an exposed steel and wood pavilion, minimalist in form, which was immediately hailed as a new milestone in museum architecture.

This exhibition explores the diverse cultural and emotional landscapes of recent Cuban art. It presents a selection of works by Contemporary Cuban artists donated to the museum by Jorge M. Pérez, the majority from a recent gift of over 170 pieces, as well as works previously gifted to PAMM in 2012, and several recent acquisitions. The selection includes multiple images of the horizon, and these works serve to structure the conceptual framework of the exhibition. The diverse meanings placed on the horizon—which include it as a symbol of longing, containment or desire—radiate across the additional works on view. Produced in various media, such as, painting, sculpture, drawing, video, and installation, these contemplative artworks help generate a discussion regarding the specificities of Cuba’s current physical, social, and political environment, as revealed through each artist’s personal experience and unique aesthetics. This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of Jorge M. Pérez.
On the Horizon is presented in three distinct, yet interconnected “chapters,” with a new chapter opening every three months. The exhibition is organized around the metaphor of the horizon line—a motif that appears in many of the works on view—and brings together a strong view of artistic practices in Cuba from the last three decades as well as work by young, lesser-known artists working on the island and across the globe. The individual chapters each explore various meanings of the horizon, which include the vista as a symbol of desire, longing or containment. This symbolic framework helps generate a larger dialogue between the works on view and the specificities of Cuba’s current physical, social and political landscape, as revealed through each artist’s personal experience and unique aesthetics.

The entrance to the hotel is through a small flower filled conservatory which looks out towards Loch Linnhe and the mountains beyond. Here you can relax any time of the day and read or admire the view over a cup of coffee or enjoy a lunch watching 'life' go by. It is most popular for afternoon tea when it gets the best of the sun and for pre dinner drinks with the sun setting over the mountains.
Once through into the main hallway the atmosphere is one of a luxury country house. From here guests can step into the first of two lounges with the second beyond.
The intimacy of the smaller lounge encourages conversation, helped considerably by the gentle crackle of the log fire. The décor is bright with cream coloured wood paneling and brightly coloured sofas and chairs. Guests often relax here after breakfast and perhaps read the newspapers which are replenished every day.
The second larger lounge is a little more traditional in décor. However the large sofas and chairs all in a rich blend of colours and fabrics encourage guests to relax, perhaps by the fire reading over one of the many magazines or admiring the wide range of artwork on the walls.
The restaurant follows through with a relaxed and romantic atmosphere. Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, guests can admire the stunning views of loch Linnhe and the mountains of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula beyond.
You could also enjoy a dram in the intimate setting of our whisky bar, purpose built for us in beautiful American Walnut.
In front of the hotel, across the lane, is our garden. This spacious area is a great place to enjoy a light lunch or afternoon tea whilst admiring the beautiful views across the loch. For the slightly more energetic there is always a game of croquet to consider or perhaps a little putting to keep you in practice - all with that amazing view!
The hotel also has a number of special offers so please visit our special offers page.

Claire Elizabeth Gallery represents emerging and mid-career artists providing a variety of original works of contemporary art to enhance private and public collections.
CLAIRE ELIZABETH THRIFFILEY, DIRECTOR
Claire Thriffiley showed an interest in fine art from a young age. Under the tutelage of her cousin, Amy Palmer, a gifted visual artist and art teacher, Thriffiley began exploring the canon of art history beginning with the historical and transitioning into contemporary. She developed a fascination with artists, the creative process and visual manifestations of society and culture.
Prior to establishing the Claire Elizabeth Gallery, Thriffiley worked in the Consignments Department of Neal Auction Company. Previously, Thriffiley had worked as an insurance broker specializing in fine art insurance for private collections, galleries and museums at DeWitt Stern Group and Marsh & McLennan Companies in New York. Thriffiley also served as the graduate intern for the Worldwide Fine Art Director of Chubb Insurance, New York, as an auction preview and exhibition staff member at Bonhams, New York, and as the graduate intern in the Marketing and Communications Department at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
Thriffiley attended The American Business School in Paris and the College of Charleston, where she graduated with a degree in International Business and double minors in Art History and French. In 2010, Thriffiley graduated with academic distinction from Sotheby’s Institute of Art in New York and received a M.A. in Arts Business. Her master’s thesis, which was titled “The Value of Arts in Local Communities: A Case Study of New Orleans, LA,” focused on the emerging art scene and influence of the creative sector on the social and economic development of the city post-Hurricane Katrina.
Locally, Thriffiley spends her free time volunteering with the art program at Children’s Hospital. She is the founder of “Amy’s Art Cart”, a fundraiser for the specialized mobile unit fitted with art supplies, crafts and activities for patients and their families to enjoy while undergoing treatments at Children's Hospital. Since 2014, "Amy's Art Cart" has raised over $22,000 for Children's Hospital and provided countless art supplies and creative activities for patients.
In addition to her work with Children's Hospital, Thriffiley also assists with event planning and charity auctions for non-profits throughout the city and has volunteered with Hogs for the Cause, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA), the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, the George Rodrigue Foundation for the Arts and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

The New Orleans Museum of Art, the city’s oldest fine arts institution, has a magnificent permanent collection of almost 40,000 art objects. The collection, noted for its extraordinary strengths in French and American art, photography, glass, and African and Japanese works, continues to grow. The five-acre Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden at NOMA is one of the most important sculpture installations in the United States, with over 60 sculptures situated on a beautifully landscaped site amongst meandering footpaths, reflecting lagoons, Spanish moss-laden 200-year-old live oaks, mature pines, magnolias, camellias, and pedestrian bridges.
While browsing NOMA’s collection online, you can save works of art and create your own collection! You can print your collection and use it for your own tour the next time you visit the Museum.
NOMA continues to exhibit, interpret and preserve works of art from ancient to modern times. Paintings, drawings and prints, and decorative arts survey the development of Western Civilization from the pre-Christian era to the present. Reflecting its rich historic and cultural heritage in New Orleans, NOMA has formed a comprehensive survey of African and French art. Among its French treasures is a group of works by the French Impressionist Edgar Degas who visited maternal relatives in New Orleans in the early 1870s and painted just 20 blocks from the Museum. NOMA’s collection of works by masters of the School of Paris includes paintings and sculptures by Picasso, Braque, Dufy and Miro, among others.
NOMA is in the process of adding over 10,000 pieces from the collection to this web site. The work currently on the site is a sample of what is to come. In the meantime, if visitors are interested in researching over 20,000 collection images in the NOMA library, please contact librarian Sheila Cork to make an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org/504-658-4117. Thank you for your patience!
NOMA has developed a unique Arts of the Americas collection, surveying the cultural heritage of North, Central and South America from the pre-Columbian period through the Spanish Colonial era. This collection is especially rich in objects from the great Mayan culture of Mexico and Central America, and in painting and sculpture from Cuzco, the fabulous Spanish capital of Peru. An important part of the Museum’s display of American art is a suite of period rooms featuring 18th and 19th century furniture and decorative arts.
As it has for a century, the New Orleans Museum of Art continues to be a gathering place for all those seeking to share the beauty of this extraordinary collection or world art and learn from it. NOMA engages, educates and enriches the diverse populations within, and drawn to, the New Orleans area.
