Samuel Owen Gallery (Greenwich, CT) showed wall sculpture pieces by Todd Sanders and Charles Patrick at Scope Miami Beach 2016.
Sanders neon piece asks a question many have been asking for the past month or so. It is to be hoped he is now working on a piece that answers the question.
Patrick's piece is made up of torn up money. There have been a number of artists using money in their work in various ways (some to great effect) and others with less success. This piece, above all else, has a sort of aesthetic beauty to go with an implication; money's value is an illusion.

In the historic Seven Seas building that now houses the Samuel Owen Gallery, there is a small room just off the showroom floor where owner Lee Milazzo painstakingly pins paper butterflies into a canvas. Well, it would seempainstaking. "I can't really do anything for more than thirty minutes without getting really restless, but I can do this for some reason," Lee says with a smile as he carefully places a butterfly into an outline of Nantucket. "I scored really high in spatial relationships on my IQ test, so that means I'm really good at packing a car for a trip, packing a grocery bag and doing this." And if sales are any indication, Lee is very good at creating this very unique art, with commissioned pieces that have included a Batman logo made entirely out of butterflies cut from the covers of Batman comics, a Playboy Bunny made from 1970s Playboy Centerfolds, and the island of Nantucket, made from maps of Nantucket. But Lee is just getting started.

About 3.5 by 14 miles in size, the island greets ferry-goers with its streetlight-free downtown overlooking the Nantucket Sound: Here, you’ll find quaint cobblestone streets peppered with boutiques, restaurants, museums, and even a historic Meeting House where, every Fourth of July, the Declaration of Independence is read. Start by renting bikes from Young’s Bicycle Shop, an island staple since the 1930s. All of the in-town must-hits are easily accessible by two wheels, like the Nantucket Whaling Museum and the Samuel Owen Gallery, an art gallery posting up in the historic Seven Seas building—once home to Captain George Pollard of The Essex, the sinking of which inspired Moby-Dick.

For New York City-based photographer Fran Gormley, making beautiful landscapes isn’t safe; it’s risky and treacherous, requiring her to board helicopters in heavy winds, sometimes over violence-ridden terrain. Floating thousands of feet above terra firma is not, she stresses, “fun.” It’s both daunting and life-affirming, much like giving birth. The Sensuous Earth, shot over some of the most inaccessible corners of the world, is the photographer’s ode to Mother Nature.
