Tracey Baran at Leslie Tonkonow, and a memorial grant

Tracey Baran Ivy 2001

UPDATE: The silent auction for the SVA Tracey Baran Memorial grant has been extended through Friday, October 2nd, for all unsold lots. The fine works which remain are being offered with reduced reserve prices, and can be seen here.

It's a celebration, not a retrospective, but it's enough to show how much we will miss her, and of course her remarkable art.

Leslie Tonkonow is currently hosting an installation of the late artist Tracey Baran's work. It supports the only slightly ambiguous title, "Pictures of Tracey". But there's so much more that couldn't possibly be fitted into one space, in one show; I'm sure it's not going to disappear.

Roughly concurrent with the exhibition, the School of Visual Arts is hosting a benefit auction for an annual grant given in Tracey's name. The silent auction, of works donated by other artists, except for one painfully-beautiful photograph by Baran herself, will continue through September 30th on Proceeds will fund the grant, which is open to emerging female photographers from the United States.
