Barbara Chase-Riboud

Went with  my dear friend Ellen to Barbara Chase-Riboud’s show and book signing at  the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery in New York City. A lovely show of some of her bronze and silk work, along with a selection of drawings — including two “drawings” done in silk.

Her dark pieces are most familiar to those who have followed her work over the years, so the glowing “Mao’s Organ” (below) was particularly striking.

The book signing was for her collected poetry 1974-2011, with the beautiful title Every Time a Knot is Untied, A God is Released.
